Humanure is the third full-length album by deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation. Gabe Serbian, Justin Pearson and Robert Bray of The Locust make guest appearances on this album, along with former member Scott Miller. A music video was produced for "Reduced to Paste".

The album cover by Wes Benscoter is a parody of the cover of the Pink Floyd album Atom Heart Mother.[2][3] The cover, which depicts a cow defecating flesh and blood, was deemed grotesque by many retailers and they refused to carry it unless it was changed. The cover was edited, removing the cow, and leaving just a barren wasteland.[4]

The album's opening track "Scatology Domine" (the title of which is also a Pink Floyd reference, in this case to the song "Astronomy Domine") is a cover of the opening of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.
