Cattle Decapitation

Cattle Decapitation

Song: “Regret and the Grave”

CD: The Harvest Floor

Cattle Decapitation is a vegetarian metal band who opposes mistreatment (and consumption) of animals.  We’re pretty sure this song and video are the band’s attempts to get humans to see life from the point of view of  the animals they slaughter and eat. But the singer’s voice is so grindcore, it’s hard to tell.
