* SpecialGuest: Many over the years; some of the more notable ones include [[Music/{{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.

* ContemptibleCover: The majority of them, but Humanure's attracted enough ire to more or less force the band to change it.

* GenreRoulette: ''Monolith''. That album has:
** Noisy, grindy tech (The Carbon Stampede)
** Brutal death (Dead Set on Suicide, Forced Gender Reassignment, Projectile Ovulation, Do Not Resuscitate)
** Blackened death (A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat, Your Disposal, Kingdom of Tyrants)
** Prog-death (Gristle Licker, Lifestalker)
** A creepy neofolk-tinged dark ambient piece (The Monolith)



* MetalScream: And some particularly terrifying ones at that.

* MetalScream: And some particularly terrifying ones at that.Travis Ryan is generally a mix of a Type 2 and a Type 3, though he ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny accidentally]]) managed to pull off a Type 4 during a failed take for "The Product Alive".



* ProgressiveMetal

to:

* ProgressiveMetalProgressiveMetal: Started flirting with this on ''Karma.Bloody.Karma'' and fully jumped into progressive death metal with ''The Harvest Floor''.

* IdiosyncraticAlbumTheming: Every album since ''The Harvest Floor'' has closed with a LighterAndSofter ambient track, followed by a more typical song for the band, always reprising the ambient track that precedes it.

* ShoutOut: The cover and title of ''Monolith of Inhumanity'', as well as the video for "The Monolith/Kingdom of Tyrants", is one big homage to/twisted parody of the intro of TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.

They were formed in 1996 by Scott Miller (vocals, guitar), Gabe Serbian (drums, later guitar), and Dave Astor (bass, later drums) as a [[{{Grindcore}} deathgrind]] outfit, though [[ThePeteBest Miller swiftly left]] and was later replaced by Travis Ryan, a noise composer and frontman of the drone/doom outfit 5/5/2000. Serbian and Astor left sometime after, with Josh Elmore and Michael Laughlin filling their respective spots; this, of course, has been a recurring theme with Cattle Decapitation, as Travis Ryan and Josh Elmore have been the only steady members for some time. After [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a fairly sizable amount of lineup changes]] over the years, they finally settled on Dave [=McGraw=] (drums) and Derek Engemann (bass), with Ryan and Elmore continuing to maintain their duties.

At some point in 2016, they became a five-piece, as Belisario Dimuzio was added as a second guitarist.

* IndecipherableLyrics: Remarkably averted with Travis, whose manages to make his growls quite intelligible.



* VoiceOfTheLegion: Travis frequently layers his vocals in the studio.
* YouSuck: "Circo Inhumanitas" has this as its core message: if you willingly associate with circuses in any way, you are an awful person.
