* SpecialGuest: Many over the years; some of the more notable ones include [[{{Swans}} Jarboe]], [[Music/{{Devourment}} Mike Majewski]], the entire Cephalic Carnage crew, [[Music/{{Pantera}} Phil Anselmo]], Author & Punisher, and Jurgen Bartsch (Bethlehem). Travis Ryan himself has done this, most notably on Music/{{Soulfly}}'s latest album.

Added DiffLines:

* InNameOnly: They technically have no remaining founders (Dave Astor was the last to leave in 2002), but Travis Ryan joined very shortly after they had formed and has been with the band for so long (he basically joined right after the recording of ''Ten Torments of the Damned'') that he may as well have been a founder.

* {{GIFT}}: "Not Suitable for Life" was inspired by Travis's sheer irritation and disgust at reading a seemingly endless litany of ignorant, asinine, and stupidly hostile social media comments on a particularly bad day.

* YouSuck: "Circo Inhumanitas" has this as its core message: if you willingly associate with circuses in any way, you are an awful person.

* TaughtByExperience: More or less how he developed his cleans. Over the years, he found himself adjusting his voice during soundchecks and performances to cope with shitty house sound setups, and he developed his cleans essentially by accident as a side effect of having to compensate for bad equipment and incompetent sound guys.

* StartMyOwn: Dave Astor and Music/{{Pathology}}; The Locust, however, does not qualify, as they actually predated Cattle by two years.

* ManOfAThousandVoices: Travis pulls off mid-ranged roars, low gurgles, pig squeals, an ear-piercing shriek, a weird nasally snarl, sharp, rapid-fire spitting (hard to describe in any other way), sickly, phlegm-laced spoken portions, and his trademark raspy, squawk-like cleans.

As of ''The Anthropocene Extinction'', he has started using conventional post-punk-tinged cleans.



* ShoutOut: The cover and title of ''Monolith of Inhumanity'', as well as the video for "The Monolith/Kingdom of Tyrants", is one big homage/twisted parody of the intro of TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.
* SopranoAndGravel: Played with. While Ryan has taken to using clean vocals on the past couple of albums, they are NOT what you'd generally expect from clean vocals, being more of a nasally screech. The closest one can get to traditional cleans is "Kingdom of Tyrants", and even those are not really what you'd call "clean".
