With all the drama surrounding the 2015 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and its lack of true headlining bands and low attendance, the timing of the 2015 Summer Slaughter Tour couldn’t have been any better.

Cattle Decapitation

Cattle Decapitation’s seventh album, The Anthropocene Extinction (review), is its own grindcore version of Roots, a turning point for the band and possibly one for the entire subgenre. This is grind like you’ve never heard it before. Among the blastbeats, the rhythm section divvies out multiple tempo changes, making for surprises around every bend. Songs flawlessly go from grind to thrash to black metal to even a hardcore tempo. Adding to the variety and depth are a range of guest musicians, along with a newer vocal style by frontman Travis Ryan. Providing the riffs is Josh Elmore, the band’s guitarist since 2001, ranging from harsh and pummeling to sad and epic.

The band already has begun the touring cycle for the new album by taking part in this year’s installment of the Summer Slaughter Tour (view tour dates here), headlined by Arch Enemy and also featuring Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, The Acacia Strain, After the Burial and Beyond Creation. A week into the tour, which included stops in the Midwest, we talked with Elmore about the new release, the tour and selling T-shirts. (more…)

If not, we kindly direct you to it here. Well, old-school hard rockers Sister Sin played the Victory Stage and vocalist Liv Jagrell chimed in for us, albeit in a nicer way than the others. But the Mayhem controversy wasn’t all we discussed; there were also some things about her band, influences, her posing for publications and more. Here is the complete interview we conducted with the Swedish bombshell. (more…)
