“Carnival: war, rape, lies, pathology, evil displayed through certain events and situations of the latest years in the world.  Is Forever – I guess it doesn’t need explaining.  Both the text and the title are bitterly ironic. [The art is v]ery intriguing and quite strange for a metal album but surely staying in memory.  A vital thing is that it’s a photo. We did not want any computer graphics this time or anything artificial or plastic.  The same regards the production of the album. We had actually been thinking about getting a painting for the cover but unfortunately we couldn’t do it.  Maybe next time.”

DECAPITATED ISSUE FINAL STUDIO REPORT

April 5th, 2011
DECAPITATED

DECAPITATED

Technical death metal band DECAPITATED have issued the final report from Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland regarding the recording for their Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis:

“The session is over!  We are 100% happy with what we have created.  The final effect is mind-blowing and we ourselves are surprised with the outcome of a two-month recording session and a six-month period of polishing the material.  Worth mentioning is that some of the riffs were done in the days of the prior DECAPITATED. People have changed, but the spirit has remained untouched and despite a few innovations, it is still the DECAPITATED you all know.

“As we had mentioned before, we have been consistently striving to get the ‘true,’ organic and natural sound.  The sum of all ingredients has resulted in a staggering power and a crazy adrenaline shot.  Moreover, to our surprise, something else has emerged… insanity, madness, inexplicable power.  This is the factor that most of [the] top ‘trite’ productions lack.  Over the whole music hovers some idea, some concept that infects the listeners like a disease.  This is what the music is always all about and the reason why you return to some records years after years – it’s the emotions… We are damn proud, fulfilled, self-confident and are looking forward to confronting the new material live.  All the best!”

DECAPITATED’s new album has 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.

DECAPITATED: STUDIO REPORT #6

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.

DECAPITATED: STUDIO REPORT #5

March 18th, 2011
DECAPITATED

DECAPITATED

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:

 

“Over the last few days, we have recorded riffs with distant sounds and effects. I must admit that it sounds broad. It has an incredible  space and is deep. We have found some really interesting themes like ‘Sonar’ and ‘Satan’s Bees.’  Yesterday we put the last traces of the basic guitars and we’re beginning vocals. Everything is going according to plan and in 2 weeks we should finish the session.

 

“Rafał will certainly cope with his work and put down decent vocals. He is totally boozed and so everything should go fine. Solos and clean guitars are left – which are totally novum in Decap – and then the whole album is ready.  The material begins to mature from day to day, and now I hear that it will be a concert album.”

 

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: STUDIO REPORT #4

March 8th, 2011

Polish technical death metal band DECAPITATED continue their work at Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland recording their Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis.

 

Bassist Filip “Heinrich” Hałucha checks in from the studio:

 

“The sound we’ve worked out for the bass recording is huge, nasty, and crushing.  Thanks to this, we’ve come up with a couple of arrangements where the bass comes out of the background and plays the major part.  I must admit that, with his old school approach, Arek ‘Malta’ Malczewski has fit well in the concept of this album.  His choice of instrument levels was superb – it all sounds mighty yet there’s no mutual interference.  The bass recording took us three days plus an extra day for sound search.  After much deliberation and testing different solutions, we chose a configuration of two amps: a tube Ampeg SVT Classic and a transistor B4R, one of which had huge distortion.  I should add that we did not use any line signals and all the signals come from microphones, which recently has been a rarity as far as bass recording goes in metal music.  Taking into account the ‘no compromise’ approach of Vogg and Malta, it has been undoubtedly the hardest and the most advanced session I have ever participated in.  Tracking lasted from the beginning of a song to its end; ‘copying and pasting’ any parts was out of the question.  Due to this, the session was much more demanding and time-consuming, but the final effect is the music sounding more lively and natural.  Everything has been recorded using instruments only; it’s awesome without all of these digital fireworks – advanced editions, plastic drums, pasted riffs, etc.  It reeks of the old metal spirit.  There ‘s proper metal groove and speed but also a specific vibe which adds up to what this type of music is all about.”

DECAPITATED’s fifth studio album is being produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski.  Drums were recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who is also handling 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.

Guitarist & founding member Wacek “Vogg”Kiełtyka checks in once again from the studio:

 

Hi Everyone,

We are half-way through with guitar tracking. All is going according to the plan and in a few days we are starting with the bass. The guitars sound heavy yet very selective. I must admit we have come up with a very original sound that in my opinion resembles ‘black storm clouds.’  Heinrich [bassist] is coming to the studio the day after tomorrow and we will crack on with the bass then. Malta is a very demanding engineer and he is controlling the whole situation meticulously. The new material is beginning to take its shape and it is getting more and more interesting. Take it easy folks!”

Preliminary song titles used for the recording sessions include:

-Slow
-Riff 1 Clean
-Diablo
-Hits
-Fast One (Need More!!!)
-7 Idea
-Witek Idea
-Chilis Assasin
-Clean Song

DECAPITATED’s fifth studio album is being produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski.  Drums have been recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who is also handling mixing duties.  The band will be self-releasing the new album in their native Poland.

DECAPITATED: STUDIO REPORT #1

February 14th, 2011

Polish technical death metal band DECAPITATED are currently at Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland recording their follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis.  Guitarist & founding member Wacek Kiełtyka offers the following first report from the studio:

“Hi there,

We’ve just started the recording session of the new album at the studio of Radio Gdansk which is brilliantly equipped and has some wicked recording space. This time ‘round, we are working with Malta (Arek Malczewski) and Daniel Bergstrand who have been with us to set up the drums sound… and so far everything has been going surprisingly well.

Right now, [drummer] Kerimh [Lechner] is finishing the last two tunes. I must say the drums sound really cool. Daniel has surprised us with his approach towards recording using millions of – often weird – solutions, e.g. a piano or using the corridor of Radio Gdansk. :)

We are recording fully live drums – no triggers or plastic sounding stuff whatsoever, which, especially for Kerimh, renders the session more demanding than he had expected; but because of this, in my opinion, the sound will be original and will help us to avoid the so-called ‘machine gun effect.’  We are going to record eight songs altogether and the album will be about forty minutes long. It looks like this time, our recording style is pretty ‘old-school’- with live drums and no recording of double guitar tracks, which means one guitar per side.

Daniel is just on his way back to Sweden now and we are starting to record the skins for the last two songs so I gotta be going now.

Check out the pics and till the next time, Yo.”

Drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner checks-in about drums:

“Hi Guys!

I just wanted to tell you what is going on in the studio.  Today is the second day of actual drum recording and it’s going really well!   We probably could finish about four songs today.  We will see how the next days will look like, but I think we could finish drums earlier.   We do not have any bigger problems so it feels good to record in this place.  The acoustics of this room sound great so I enjoy playing all these songs a lot.  Today is also the last day with Daniel Bergstrand, who prepared the drum sound for us – and he definitely knows what he’s doing!!

When I listen to the songs right now, I believe that this album will be strong.  Different in some ways, but I feel confident about the new material.  Being part of the new line-up and recording the first album after the long break is definitely a big thing for me.  After all those shows we played together, this is our new challenge.  It’s not easy but I like challenges!

So that’s it for today. Stay tuned for more news coming up!  Cheers!”
Preliminary song titles used for the recording sessions (excerpted from the studio photos) include:

-Slow
-Riff 1 Clean
-Diablo
-Hits
-Fast One (Need More!!!)
-7 Idea

-Chilis Assasin

DECAPITATED ‘WINDS OF CREATION’ & ‘ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS’ OUT NOW ON VINYL

July 20th, 2010

WINDS OF CREATION and ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS, two landmark albums from Polish death metal legends DECAPITATED, are out now in Europe on vinyl LP for the first time ever.

DECAPITATED’s debut album, WINDS OF CREATION was released in 2000 and was immediately hailed as an album responsible for re-igniting a stagnating death metal scene.

ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS was released in 2006 and was DECAPITATED’s first release with new vocalist COVAN.  A hugely forward-thinking and ambitious album, ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS defined DECAPITATED’s sound and spawned a host of imitators.

Available now on limited edition coloured vinyl, WINDS OF CREATION and ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS each come housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a double-sided poster booklet.  The albums are the latest releases in the ‘First Time on Vinyl’ campaign, plugging the gaps in the Earache catalogue previously unavailable on wax.

These strictly limited edition vinyls are available in the following colours and quantities:

WINDS OF CREATION
100 – Fire & Brimstone
200 – Tooth White
300 – Burning Red
900 – Black

ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS
100 – Crumbling Rust
200 – Stainless Grey
300 – Organic Green
900 – Black
