AllMusic Review by

I don't know about you, but Cattle Decapitation certainly gets my vote for most "colorful" name of an extreme metal band of recent memory. And for over a decade by this point, the group has certainly been unleashing the fury and continue to do so on their 2009 release, Harvest Floor. Produced by a chap who is no stranger to pushing sonic boundaries for albums he oversees, Billy Anderson (whose credits include the Melvins, Mr. Bungle, etc.), Harvest Floor certainly doesn't disappoint, as it follows the same blueprint laid down on the group's previous offerings -- extreme metal at its most complex and brutal. And Cattle Decapitation's gift of coming up with glorious song titles remains very much intact, as evidenced by the presence of such ditties as "We Are Horrible People," "Tooth Enamel and Concrete," and especially, "Into the Public Bath."
