Cattle Decapitation are planning on celebrating their ten years as part of Metal Blade Records by releasing a series of limited edition vinyls of the albums from their Metal Blade years. More information on this comes direct from the band themselves:

The band's entire Metal Blade discography: "To Serve Man" (2002), "Humanure" (2004), "Karma.Bloody.Karma" (2006), "The Harvest Floor" (2009), and "Monolith of Inhumanity" (2012) are all being prepared in lavish gatefolds for release. The colors, handpicked by the band, reflect the concept or color scheme behind each album. Fans will also have the opportunity to pick up a collectable box that comes with brand new art from longtime CATTLE DECAPITATION cover artist, Wes Benscoter. Additionally, "To Serve Man", the band's debut full-length, and their sophomore effort "Humanure" have been remastered specially for this release. Each vinyl will be released separately in the coming months and all vinyls will be available for the first time ever in Europe.

As stated above the vinyls are being released in some very "unique" colours. The full descriptions can be found below:

"To Serve Man" - (300 x 'Of flesh and garnish col. vinyl' & 200 x 'splattered abattoir vinyl')
"Humanure" - (300 x 'Exploded polyp col. Vinyl' & 200 x 'A murder in the feedlot col. vinyl')
"Karma.Bloody.Karma" - (300 x 'Curried sanguine col. vinyl & 200 x 'Bloody masala vomit col. vinyl)
"The Harvest Floor" - (300 x 'Slaughterhouse smog col. Vinyl & 200 x 'Pollution harvest col. vinyl)
