No Birth Without Blood - A Mixtape Compiled by Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation 08/25/11

Travis Ryan, the singer of Cattle Decapitation compiled this tape a little while ago and we love it. It's definitely not what one would expect from one of the best grindcore vocalists in the world (there's not a single blastbeat on the tape) but that's not to say it's not heavy as shit. For example, the tape ends with what sounds like a Satanic child murder replete with the echoing sobs of a terrified infant, but in reality it's a recording of Travis's own Catholic baptism. Enjoy!
