Cattle Decapitation - The Harvest Floor (2009)

The Harvest Floor is Cattle Decapitation's 5th full length CD and most impressive release to date. A perfect example of Deathgrind music done well, Cattle Decapitation encompasses a variety of styles into their sound creating a virtual rollercoaster ride effect. Deep guttural growling vocals and high pitched screams spew forth gore-laden lyrics from front-man Travis Ryan as the diverse guitar style of Josh Elmore and the monstrous bass sound of Troy Oftedal are accompanied by their new drummer David McGraw, who takes Cattle Decapitation to a whole new level of extreme speed and brutality. I know this has been out for a while but it's worth posting.

Fall of Efrafa - Inlé (2009)

"The long awaited final chapter of the "The Warren of Snares" trilogy, Fall Of Efrafa conclude their mythological tale of an uprising against an oppressive regime, based upon an interpretation of the classic novel "Watership Down" by Richard Adams. Inlé is crushing yet beautiful; ambient and atmospheric heavy post hardcore, bringing to mind the likes of Neurosis, Buried Inside, Envy, Earth and Godspeed You Black Emperor."
