Several months ago, I was able to check off another box on the bucket list by finally seeing Cattle Decapitation live.  For those who don’t know, they (along with Pig Destroyer and Napalm Death) are part of my holy trinity of grind.  As expected, their set was amazing, truly a top ten set for me, and I’ve seen a lot of live music.  After they played, I had the incredible opportunity to talk to longtime guitarist Josh Elmore.  It turns out Josh and I grew up in similar scenes (though different locations) around the same time.  He is a really great guy and I thoroughly enjoyed our time talking (for over 40 minutes no less).  Art of B Productions was there to catch the whole thing on camera.  Due to the sheet length of the conversation, we have divided it into two parts.  Check them out below.
