To avoid misunderstandings regarding the title right from the start, listen to what the band has got to say on the subject: "No, there isn’t a religious background to the album title! No, we’re not ‘crazy vegans’ wishing to impose our way of life on other people. It’s all about the ‘biggest natural disaster ever’ – mankind and revenge for its deeds on this planet. Musically and lyrically speaking, you can expect our most nihilist, pessimist and hateful album to date!"

If a musician in the gore/grind-scene says about an upcoming album: "musically and lyrically you can expect the most nihilist, pessimistic, and hateful album in the band's history", the fan of the extreme sounds can only yawn. Still, one has to confirm that Travis Ryan, the shouter of Cattle Decapitation and originator of these words was right, because with "Karma bloody karma, the U.S. grinder release a true, acoustic inferno. Over the biggest part of the album, the quartet slaughters in an incredible pace through the most intricate blast passages in which drummer Michael Laughlin has a lot to do and guitarist Josh Elmore convinces with unbelievable string work. Always when the tracks are in danger of drowning in monotony, Cattle Decapitation unwrap surprising breaks and even some catchy guitar melodies in their arrangements. For fans of the extreme grind genre as well as for fans of fast death metal, "Karma bloody karma“ is definitely a hot tip.
