* IndecipherableLyrics: Remarkably averted with Travis, who's able to make his growls quite intelligible.

Cattle Decapitation is an American deathgrind/technical death metal/[[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly whatever the hell else they feel like]] outfit. Characterized by their discordant, unpredictable sound, [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters viciously misanthropic]] lyrical content, intense live shows, and staunch animal rights views (while originally entirely vegetarian or vegan, Travis Ryan and Josh Elmore are the only remaining vegetarians in the band), Cattle Decapitation has become a very prominent player in modern death metal.

Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The narrator of "Forced Gender Reassignment" is attempting to fight against transphobia. Unfortunately, they decide the best means of doing so is by abducting and brutally forcing a sex change operation on a transphobe so they'll feel the same way transgender people do.


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

* PerishingAltRockVoice: Travis Ryan's more conventional cleans on ''Death Atlas'' are a sparse baritone heavily reminiscent of Music/NickCave or [[Music/{{Swans}} Michael Gira]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheSixthRanger: Rostam "Ross" Zafar, their longtime merch guy, tour hand, and moral support, not to mention Travis's fellow Music/ThrobbingGristle and Genesis P-Orridge fanatic.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Though still death metal at its core, ''Death Atlas'' doesn't keep the same brutality as many of their old albums do, including more clean vocals and focusing on environmental destruction over gore and other grotesque topics.

Added DiffLines:

* GaiasLament: A recurring theme in their music is how humanity is making the Earth more and more unlivable.

* MetalScream: Travis Ryan is generally a mix of a Type 2 and a Type 3, though he ([[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments accidentally]]) managed to pull off a Type 4 during a failed take for "The Product Alive".

* SopranoAndGravel: Travis started using his extremely distinctive brand of raspy, squawk-like cleans on ''The Harvest Floor'' with "Regret & the Grave" and later expanded them on ''Monolith of Inhumanity''. As of ''Death Atlas'', he has started using more conventional cleans as well.

* BlackMetal: Elements of this started to creep in circa ''Monolith of Inhumanity'' (primarily on "Projectile Ovulation", "Your Disposal", and "Kingdom of Tyrants") before becoming an extremely major part of their sound on ''The Anthropocene Extinction''.



* ContemptibleCover: The majority of them, with standouts including ''The Harvest Floor'' and ''The Anthropocene Extinction'', but Humanure's attracted enough ire to more or less force the band to change it.
