May 14th, 2014


Exhumed came back to Helsinki, Finland, mid March to promote “Necrocracy” which has been praised by fans and critics alike, and once again I sat down with Exhumed’s vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey to talk about the recent album, touring, some possible future plans for the band and a bit also about one of Matt’s side project, Dekapitator.

DEKAPITATOR – Dan “Bulldoze” Shows The Meaning Of Thrash

May 3rd, 2007

Bringers Of The Storm Before The Calm

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen


For the devoted community of Thrash Metal, California-based Dekapitator surely offers some thrills in this on-going year. The band is about to start playing gigs again, and what´s even more pleasing for fans is the 2nd album. Obviously very fittingly titled THE STORM BEFORE THE CALM, it will be released during this summer via Relapse Records. As we should already know, a frighteningly heavy & ripping old school Thrash Metal is Dekapitator´s own playing area, and undoubtedly many of us want to share the same box with them when the new album is out.

The 4-string torturer, Dan Bulldoze from Dekapitator reveals many interesting details about their forthcoming Thrash-tornado THE STORM BEFORE THE CALM.

“…We wanted to show those Europeans that the Bay Area has always been the ultimate breeding ground for Thrash Metal and that we could whip ass on all the Swedish poser bands…”

Jezuz!! When you’re playing with Matt Harvey of DEKAPITATOR, you’re  playing with fire. At the age of 13, he got to hear bands like POSSESSED, KREATOR, CELTIC FROST, etc. for the very first time. I guess somehow he obviously knew that the world couldn’t be the same for him from that day on. The second coming of the Bay Area Thrash Metal may well be in the tight grip of DEKAPITATOR but now however, let’s just unleash the beast himself. That beast’s leading us right behind the darkest corners of the well-kept secrets of the band. Ladies and gentlemen, may I proudly present… DEKAPITATOR from the Bay Area, San Francisco…
