Song of the Day: Cattle Decapitation, "Lifestalker"
So why listen? Because their music, a weird blend of deathgrind and hummability, will have your pinky and index finger raised in joy while your head quickly and repeatedly nods approval. I'm really enjoying the tempo shifts, jazzy interlude and Josh Elmore's classic rock solo on the new "Lifestalker," off their upcoming album Monolith of Humanity. It's more melodic than their earlier releases, but singer Travis Ryan still hocks up enough to remind you who you're listening to. If the rest of Monolith of Humanity is as good as this and the first preview ("A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat,") it'll be their best release yet. If not, it'll still be a treat. I can't wait to find out.
