How much is too much of a good thing? Travis Ryan is on a quest to find out.

To say this album is eagerly anticipated would be a colossal understatement.

The Harvest Floor is still a personal favorite but Death Atlas is extraordinary. Being a member of Cattle Decapitation must be really difficult. Such delivery👌👌👌

Logical evolution from the previous two albums, unfortunatly the band is now a parody of themselves. In my opinion the riffs are predictible, some "melodic" vocals are unbearable, and in general the album lacks of brutality.
The geocide, one day closer to the end of the world, absolute destitute are good songs

Not as strong as their previous 2 albums, but still a decent record. The 3 tracks they released before the album are by far the strongest on this (with 'Finish Them' coming in at 3rd for me).

This album doesn't feature anywhere near as many twists and turns, and some of the riffs are generic. For me though, the strength of the highlights outweigh the overall slight feeling of monotony.

The three advance released tracks were great but w.r.t the rest of the album, it's too soon for me to say.

Scored a 2.5 on AMG though and that's normally a pretty good benchmark.

Oh my god I literally started laughing out loud when the high-metal-elf vocals came in

Why would they ever think those were a good idea? I had to double check to make sure I was still listening to Cattle Decapitation.

That's not a new thing though. If you've listened to Cattle Decap before, why would you be surprised at his shrieked cleans?

So I've learned, it's been awhile since I've sat down and listened. They really kill the vibe for me.

Which is weird as hell considering they're easily the best and most distinct thing about the band.

I don't know about the best thing but it's certainly become a staple ingredient in their recipe. Understandable how divisive an aspect it is though. I haven't heard this one yet and still holding off until I see them live next week just for post-comparison's sake but if it's similar to what they've been doing recently them I'm down.

In my opinion their best. Still incredibly brutal band, but they're also catchy and epic now as well. Progressive elements are present too, love it.

Man, you really kill the vibe of every thread I see you post in. The shrieks are a fantastic edition to the deathgrind experience. I personally think they are some of the most horrific sounding vocals, at certain points, and if more extreme metal bands could incorporate them into their music it would elevate the genre as a whole. If you want the same monotonous cookie monster vocals ad nasum listen to the other 99% of death metal band out there. Cattle fans like variety and versatility.

It takes a big man to apologize, especially online. Now that you salved my wounded heart I can pick up my head continue with my life. Much respect.

I wasn't able to connect with "Anthropocene" as much as I did "Monolith" due to lack of vigorousness, but boy I found in abundance in this impressive record.

Highlights: "Bring Back The Plague" and "Death Atlas".

It is the first grind album that I enjoy listening to. I like the fact that has some meloblack elements and different types of vocals.

Not as outright explosive as Anthropocence Era but man what a grower. It's already surpassed Monolith for me.
