Cattle Decapitation

Cattle Decapitation

Hometown: San Diego, CA (USA)


Originally founded in 1996, Cattle Decapitation's songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals as well as the abuse of the environment. Lyrics may also focus on subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based on putting humans in the situations that animals are subjected to (animal testing, slaughter, etc.). Only two current members are vegetarian: Travis Ryan and Josh Elmore.
