Mr. Bungle tap Cattle Decap, Melvins, more for reunion shows

Mr. Bungle reunion shows

Official press release:

Mr. Bungle, who surprised fans last month when they unexpectedly announced several live performances, all of which sold out within moments of their on-sale, have announced the bands who will be joining them for the highly-anticipated performances.

Hand-picked by the Mr. Bungle band members, the openers include Cattle Decapitation, Possessed, Hirax, the Melvins, Ho99o9, C*nts and Spotlights, reflecting a mix of artists that both influenced the Eureka-born outfit's 1986 demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, as well as current bands that the musicians are both fans of and feel are carrying on the spirit of that era, both musically and in attitude.

"Putting these shows together it occurred to us that this was a great opportunity to expose unsuspecting audiences to some of the absolutely legendary thrash, death metal and hardcore bands that originally inspired us in the mid 80s," explains Trey Spruance. "And if we're going to do that, why not re-unite with some of the equally legendary bands we were close with in the 90s? And why just concentrate on the past? Of the current bands that have taken some kind of inspiration from the heavier side of Mr. Bungle in doing their own thing, why not invite the select few that have managed to inspire us back?"

Mr. Bungle's Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, and Trey Spruance will be joined by Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies) for what has been dubbed: Mr. Bungle Plays The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny. The one off tour finds the group playing the self-produced and self-released 1986 demo in its entirety, marking not only the first Mr. Bungle performances in 20 years but the first time these songs will be played live in close to three decades.

Donovan thinks he is hip and cool, calling them Cattle Decap instead of Cattle Decapitation. Next he will referring to them as Cattle Half-Decap Double Espresso with Soy Milk. gay.

I'm not listening to vegan metal. Enjoy an early death and chronic health issues on your NWO diet. Get them to kill themselves... no shots fired. Genius!!!

Hirax was not, is not, and never will be a "legendary" band let alone a hardcore band. A shitty thrash metal band with a even shittter name, yeah.

The Melvins were, are, and always will be The Melvins: boring as fck in their "heyday", give it up bad now in 2019 soon to be 2020.

Mike Patton couldn't make it with the Faith No More comeback. Kinda hard to without Jim Martin who wrote all their best stuff.

I like Patton, but yeah.. Melvins fckin suck. Oh hey I'm Buzz, an 80 year old dude with an Afro and I believe that Nirvana and Dave Grohl owe me money and hot dogs as far as my eyes can see. Eat shit fggt.

^^terrible take. King Buzzo is absurdly influential and is the reason everyone's guitars only seemed to tune to drop D in the 90s

Isnt Cattle Decapitation the band full of rapists?

anonymous

No that's Decapitated, Cattle Decap is the bargain bin metal band with the dickhead singer. I wonder why he's the only original member?

anonymous

Korn is TOO stoked. Brian Welch is currently calling everyone he's ever met, frantically trying to get on the guest list for every show.

^^^ Buzzo influencing drop D guitars? Highly doubtful. Imagine thinking you've influenced bigger bands and a whole genre and still having to work at the local supermarket.

anonymous
9/26/2019 10:10:34 AM
Hey Marco, John Jarvis and Derek... you guys can all stop pretending to be anonymous. Everyone knows it's you guys on here shit talking Cattle and the Decaps because your current bands f*kking BLOW and no one could give 2 dead f*kks about them. Literally, if Phil wasnt in Scour, yall would have ZERO attention. And Marco is just bitter that hes not David and has to play in in the Barnes shit show.

anonymous
9/26/2019 10:13:25 AM
And Derek, you can dislodge your tongue from Phil's sphincter any day now. You play in his least good band ever. People only show up to see him. Yall should be playing behind a curtain. No one cares. You should've kept your trap shut and stayed in Cattle, but you had to lie by telling people you wrote those couple albums... dumbass.

Hirax and The Melvins are crap. Jim Martin made FNM. No Jim, no FNM, deal with it dipshi t.

I mean, that's exactly what happened. He got the grunge bands playing in drop D and using tons of syncopation in their lines. He also invented sludge metal by accident since everyone in New Orleans loved early Melvins stuff. And to top it off, Page Hamilton made 100 times more money just playing his left over riffs.

^^^ I like how you didn't get all defensive and gave some solid references/info, I will have to dive into early Melvin's and find out for myself.

How pathetic is it that the singer of Cattle defends his band "anonymously" on Lambgoat with some drama no one cares about

"Hey Marco, John Jarvis and Derek... you guys can all stop pretending to be anonymous. Everyone knows...

I saw Cattle open up for one of John Jarvis's bands at Hellfest, and it was like their 3rd show and they didn't even have a drummer. And I saw Scour there and they played even later in the day, proving Cattle would also open for them. Whoever wrote this obviously doesn't understand much

Ask any promoter in the country if Cattle draws over 200, they still don't after all of these years.

I've been to Cattle shows with less than 50 people many times

Speaking of Derek, I think he's playing a huge festival this weekend w/ Guns N Roses and Slipknot, good for him for moving on from Cattle Decrap. The guy spitting all over himself only goes so far

I'm not Travis. If I could create an account, I wouldnt post anonymously, but this site is malfunctioning and wont let me create an account. Either way, Derek is a liar who did NOT write those albums, as he tells people. I've been cool with all the dudes in the band, but he was the one member I never made an effort to be chums with. He can have Phil's turds that plop into his mouth.

anonymous

Dude, Phil is a legend and Derek is about to do Slayers final tour, Cattle are chumps, wake up

Yes, Phil is a god, but the Illegals is literally his worst band ever and honestly, it cannot even come close to sounding near as good as Pantera. The songs sound thin and lacking of balls. Dime by himself still sounded heavier than those 2 nameless guitarists. Derek found a meal ticket. Good for him. Hes still a piece of shit for reasons I am not allowed to say and Jarvis is an even bigger piece of shit.

Song credits clearly show who wrote the songs, and they show Derek did, who is this liar?!

Cattle fans sound like little name calling 7 year olds "he's a piece of shit" how about give your name and examples, already caught in lies

Decapitated were innocent, however you are 100% correct about the Cattle Decapitation singer

Vegan metal? Like anyone gives a fck about what you eat!! How about make some good music

Cattle Decapitation have started a petition to get Neil Hamburger to change his name to Neil Veggieburger for these shows.
