Cattle Decapitation's Terrasite Album CoverWes Benscoter

Cattle Decapitation Share Their First Reaction To The Divisive Cover Art Of Their New Album “Terrasite”


San Diego deathgrinders Cattle Decapitation have a long history of pushing the envelope, especially when it comes to the visual aspect of their art. Their notorious “Forced Gender Reassignment” music video set a new bar for extremity in music videos at the time.

Their long-running collaboration with cover artist Wes Benscoter has also remained provocative and even ran them into some censorship issues over the years. However, Benscoter‘s cover artwork for the band’s latest effort has drawn a bit of a mixed reaction for different reasons, leading some to parody it.

The issue for its detractors seems to be the similarity of the ants from the 1998 animated film “A Bug’s Life” and the album’s titular ‘Terrasite‘ creatures, who have molted out of their past human forms.

As the memeing continued, the band themselves got in on the joke, offering up a smoker kit named ‘A Bud’s Life‘ adorned with the ‘Terrasite‘ artwork.

However, in the below newly shared video, you can now watch the group’s initial reaction to the artwork for the album.
