Okay, I’ve seen some bizarre, twisted, and downright fucked up music videos in my time. But there wasn’t really anything that could’ve prepared me for Cattle Decapitation‘s “Forced Gender Reassignment”. Let me put it like this: when a video is too intense for YouTube, it gets on Vimeo. That site will let almost anything slide. Nope. Vimeo flat out rejected it, wanting nothing to do with it. But we at Bloody-Disgusting are never ones to shy away from bringing you the most vile visual material out there. So we gladly accepted the opportunity to not only premiere this video for you all, but also to be the only site on the internet with the balls to host it.
So, if you’ve got the guts (and the stomach), you can watch this INCREDIBLY NSFW video below. But don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Also, do us a favor and record your reaction of the video and post the video link in the comments below!
“Forced Gender Reassignment” comes from Cattle Decapitation’s latest album Monolith Of Inhumanity (iTunes). The band also has a ton of tour dates coming up. You can see the schedule for all the shows below.
WARNING: The video you are about to watch is incredibly gory, violent, and features strong sexual violence including rape and sexual assault. Bloody-Disgusting does not endorse or condone any of the actions seen in this video. It is to be viewed as entertainment only.
“For the Forced Gender Reassignment video I wanted something mean and cruel and flat out disturbing. It seems nowadays you have to be over the top in your presentation to get anyone to think about anything anymore. The song is about taking certain religious sects and showing them what its like to be in another person’s shoes – someone whose life is simply different than theirs – but forcibly so, of course, or else it just wouldn’t be Cattle Decapitation. A band heavily steeped in irony, pessimism and fucking pain. There was no second choice – Mitch Massie was the only person for the job. He helped put our vision directly on the screen and we couldn’t be more happier and at the same time repulsed by the aftermath.”
“Travis threw down the gauntlet and asked for something based around the lyrics to this insane song. Of course I had to accept the challenge. Have free reign to create something that could piss people off, make family members hate me even more, potentially ruin my future with more delicate bands, and make a complete audio/visual ‘fuck you’ in the most unapologetic way? Hell yes, count me in. This time the lyrics had to be visualized realistically as opposed to metaphorically so an absolute-bat-shit-insane cast was needed. Truly, nothing is more life affirming or fun than to shoot a project full of violence, rape, and mutilation with a group who has no fear of anything. So much of this video is real that I’ve never laughed so much in my life while being seconds away from a trip to the emergency room every day. Caleb Schneider is a personal hero of mine for creating the ‘appliance’ and having enough faith in me to do it justice. Getting a box of dicks in the mail is a very special yet humbling moment in one’s life. It was no surprise that Travis had a difficult time finding a place to show this disgusting and very bloody project but it is amazing, ironic, and fitting that Bloody Disgusting decided to support it. I’m thankful all of our work can be heard and seen in the right place. I hope this isn’t the last time I get to do something this outrageous and awful. I would love to do a Taylor Swift video based on Story of the Eye.”

Cattle Decapitation’s new Mitch Massie- directed video for the song “Forced Gender Reassignment” is incredibly gory that both YouTube and the somewhat more lenient Vimeo both rejected it. It’s pretty much a recreation of the song’s lyrics, and if you’re familiar with those lyrics (example: “The next step in your sex revision/A slice up the shaft and around the corona/Unsheathed penile muscle exposing the urethra”), you’ll believe me when I tell you that to call this video NSFW is to put it mildly.
You know how usually when a video isn’t embeddable I still include a screen cap? Yeah well I’m not even sure what the fuck I could cap and post for this without potentially upsetting hordes of readers and getting people fired. It’s honestly making me squeamish just to think about it, and honestly, I don’t get squeamish about fictional images that I know are really just effects that often.
You can watch the video at Bloody Disgusting if you’re game for this kind of thing, but seriously… I wouldn’t do it if you’ve just eaten or anything.
“Forced Gender Reassignment” appears on Cattle Decapitation’s Monolith of Inhumanity, which is out now on Metal Blade. The band is touring with Six Feet Under and Wretched at the end of this month (dates) before beginning a stint on the MetalSucks-sponsored The Blood of Power Tour with Dying Fetus and Cerebral Bore at the end of November (dates).
