Interview: Cattle Decapitation

Cattle Decapitation interview

After a brutal and mesmerizing performance at the Chain Reaction, I had a chance to talk to the death/grind band from San Diego, Cattle Decapitation.

Sci-Fi director Paul Anderson’s (Resident Evil, Event Horizon, Mortal Kombat) new film, Aliens Vs. Predator, is a ‘prequel’ to the Aliens series. It also happens to be the ultimate comic geek fantasy, with gossip about this film (and it’s premise, the race of Aliens versus the...
