  CATTLE DECAPITATION PREMIERE 'KINGDOM OF TYRANTS' VIDEO
25th April 2012

Cattle Decapitation premiere their 'Kingdom Of Tyrants' video from their forthcoming 'Monolith Of Inhumanity' studio offering. The disturbingly twisted nine-minute mini film was directed by Mitch Massie with live band footage shot in San Marcos, California by Tyson Montrucchio.

Comments singer Travis Ryan: "We've kicked around the idea of doing a mini-film out of a song that has a big intro for years now and when I saw Mitch Massie's work on one of our friends' videos, we knew he would be the one to pull it off. We had no idea he would bring it to a level such as this though.

"The 'Kingdom of Tyrants' mini-film completely levelled our expectations. Having given him director styles I would have liked to see used such as Matthew Barney, Harmony Korine and Ridley Scott, I still never assumed we would have received something so in line with what we had in mind for this as what you see here with this video. It's disturbing. It's thought-provoking. Its 100% Cattle Decapitatin and in the direction we've been heading. Massie is the man and this is by far the best video we've ever had the pleasure to be a part of."

Adds director Mitch Massie: "I acknowledge that I will rightfully burn in some subdivision of Hell for even attempting a rough tribute to Kubrick, but at least I will make Hell a home with Cattle Decapitation and a few other damned risk-takers as neighbors. When Travis and I spoke about the concept it was a comforting fact that he too had reservations about picking fruits from the Kubrick tree.

"It wasn't until the first night of production was over and we sat down to watch the shaky rough footage when a rather sardonic thought sparked the flint that ignited the funeral pyre in me, 'fuck it, while we are here, as parts of our generation that dry-humps references in an over-saturated landfill of technological trinkets - where nothing is sacred - anyway, we might as well bury the rest of the masters in the filth they inspired in us and enter our homes justified.

"I'm a soulless ginger anyway so what do I care about these new risks of damnation when I never had a chance to begin with?' Every move made in a music video production is dictated only by the song and when listening to the 'The Monolith' and/or 'Kingdom of Tyrants' can one truly feel it is anything but a beautiful damnation? I will never know but can only hope that I married images with the song so well that the monolith may swing back around with a chance to evolve, or completely de-evolve into some foul animal, and do another damned project for this incendiary and all around amazing band."

Witness the cinematic sickness at the bottom of this page.

An achievement that stands out as one of the most volatile, ambitious, and impossible-to-pigeonhole records of 2012, 'Monolith Of Inhumanity' is set for a North American release on May 8th 2012. Produced by Dave Otero of Denver's Flatline Audio, the 11-track recording sees the progressive grind purveyors exploring innovative new techniques in song writing without abandoning their signature formula of confrontational audio wreckage.

In addition, 'Monolith Of Inhumanity' features a host of guests including Mike Majewski of Devourment (guest vocals on 'Projectile Ovulation'), Lenard Leal of Cephalic Carnage (backing vocals by on 'A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat'), The Cephalic Carnage Community Men's Choir, consisting of all current Cephalic members and alumni Jawsh Mullen and Zac Joe (gang choir vocals on 'The Carbon Stampede'), and ambient and noise interludes by Los Angeles' most extreme decimator of sound, John Wiese.

As with all of the band's releases, Monolith Of Inhumanity revolves around a central concept, building upon Ryan's potent distaste for contemporary civilization and the damage wrought in the name of progress. A concept inspired in part by '2001: A Space Odyssey' is once again captured in the cover art by longtime collaborator Wes Benscoter, depicting a bleak apocalyptic future and the regression of mankind into apes.

In related news, Cattle Decapitation are currently bringing their audio pummel to the stage on the Occupation Domination 2012 tour. The band are joined by Origin, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings Of Saturn, Battlecross and more! They return to headline shows in the UK in August.
