Vile Noise recently conducted an interview with CATTLE DECAPITATION vocalist Travis Ryan. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.
Vile Noise: What's the main inspiration for the lyrics on the upcoming record?
Travis: Well, it was obvious at the beginning of the writing that the guys were really going out on a limb with the material so I did the best I could to match that. What sucks is at the end of writing the songs, I was just getting started. I felt like we could keep going and write the next one, even. I have a ton of song titles I didn't get to use that will just end up showing up on the next record. I even have the cover art for the next one and we don't even have the art in yet for the upcoming album! So, back to the question, it's safe to say that the lyrics are still very anti-human, but more cynical this time around and do a little more exploring of my thoughts on religion, survival and the human condition.
Vile Noise: When do you expect to have the material ready for publishing? How is the recording process going?
Travis: We've pushed it back to January 2009. We're deep in mixing down right now. We're excited to see people's reaction more so than what they actually thing of the stuff. Its very different, super brutal and our brand of spasticness, but has so many different passages in there. I think it's very unique. Haters will have nothing to say. Scene kids will have a tough time finding something to dance to. I think it destroys all the cookie cutter nonsense that's blowing up so huge right now. Recording has been great and much less stressful this time around. We have some fucking killer guest spots on it that we'll be revealing when we unveil all the info.
Vile Noise: How will your upcoming record differ from "Karma.Bloody.Karma"?
Travis: It's definitely somewhat of an extension of that album. Exploring areas we always wanted to but couldn't because of certain narrow-minded people in the band that have not been an issue for quite some time now. Makes for a much more dynamic and enjoyable listen. Period. People that liked the direction we were going with on "Karma" will be pleased when they hear this one. We have a new drummer and that helped freshen things up a bit and he even wrote some of the material which is interesting.
