Decapitated Say New Album Will Pay Tribute To ‘The Old Gods’ Of Death Metal


Decapitated vocalist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka added to his workload substantially last year, signing on as a touring guitarist with Machine Head. While that has taken up a considerable amount of his time recently, it hasn’t kept him from also focusing on new material from his primary band.

Kieltyka recently revealed to that his hired gun status in Machine Head has left him with ample downtime to work on new material while out on the road. Speaking of his plans for the Decapitated‘s eighth studio album, he commented:

“…With the new record, I’ll be back with fast aggressive riffs and technical stuff, so the old fans will get what they deserve after years of my experiments. There will be songs in the style of ‘Earth Scar‘ and ‘Kill The Cult‘, but from what I have now, the new ideas sound brutal and crushing. The new Decapitated will be, in a way, a tribute to the old gods, like Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Deicide… so I feel I want to deliver more blast beats and double bass death Metal. I would also like to go for more melodic things this time, plus heaviness.”

Responding to when fans can expect to hear the album, he responded “be patient. Soon.”

Decapitated will be out on the ‘Faces Of Death Tour‘ in Europe with Beyond Creation, Ingested, Lorna Shore and Viscera starting this March. Aborted‘s Ken Bedene will be sitting behind the kit for Decapitated on that run.
