Cattle Decapitation

San Diego deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation is known for their songs Cattle Decapprotesting the mistreatment of animals and enviornmental abuse. Since forming in 1996, they have released seven studio albums and just teased a follow up to 2014's Monolith Of Inhumanity, which is slated for release later this year (more details to be announced May 20th).

Vocalist Travis Ryan and bassist Derek Engemann visited Amoeba Hollywood recently to do some record shopping. The two picked up an eclectic mix of music, including a few albums fans might not expect. Travis kicks things off with A Tribute To Bethlehem, the German metal band. Derek shows off a Dark Funeral tatoo to go with his new copy of The Secrets Of The Black Arts (Century Media) and we learn a little secret about why he loves this record so much. Travis finds two psychedelic gems from Turkish folk-rocker Selda Bagcan and gets his hands on a copy of Beck's Morning Phase (Capitol) pressed on 180 gram vinyl. In true record shopping fashion, Derek spots an album by Pagan-metal band Bornholm and picks the album solely based on its cover art. From psychedelic folk to experimental noise to pop vocal and metal, Travis and Derek dig for it all. Watch the full episode below to see all their finds:
