Polish technical death metallers DECAPITATED continue their work at Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland recording their Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis.
Guitarist & founding member Wacek “Vogg”Kiełtyka checks in once again from the studio:
“All right guys! We are slowly heading towards the end of the session. We have been here for six weeks now and we can feel the first signs of fatigue but we are still holding tight. We will be recording the vocals for the fifth song today. Rafał[Piotrowski] is in excellent form and his vocals are awesome. We have decided for a more middle range timbre because we felt it was the most powerful one. The vocals contribute a great deal to the intensity of the music and therefore the material has gained even more in its potency and destroying might. I am not going to expand on the lyrics right now as I would like to leave it for later, and the same goes for the music. The author of the lyrics would like to remain anonymous for now. It is a person you all know well and I can only say that the lyrics will be quite controversial and will pertain to our surrounding reality.
“To conclude, we are soon finishing the vocals, starting to record the solos and the album will be set for the mixing, which we have actually started already. Daniel [Bergstrand] is just finishing mixing the drums and starting with the guitars.”
DECAPITATED will soon be announcing the new album’s title and present the album artwork.
DECAPITATED’s fifth studio album is being produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums were recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who also handled mixing duties. The band will be self-releasing the new album in their native Poland.
DECAPITATED’s line-up includes: Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka on guitar, Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Thorns Of Ivy, Tone Intimacy) on drums, Rafał Piotrowski (Ketha, Forgotten Souls) on lead vocals, and Filip “Heinrich” Hałucha (Vesenia, Rootwater, Unsun, Masachist) on bass.
