Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka Confirms His Exit From Machine Head


Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka, guitarist for Decapitated, has confirmed his exit from Machine Head. He joined that latter outfit back in 2019 but has since shifted his focus back to Decapitated in recent years. Speaking on social media yesterday, February 17th, he commented:

“Hey there! I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my role as the @machine_head guitarist. So, I wanted to give you all a quick update on what’s been going on. The South American tour was my last with MH. Hope that clears things up for you!

It was bound to happen sooner or later as both @decapitatedband and @machine_head are active bands these days. So, it’s no surprise that some tours overlap.

Decapitated is my absolute No. 1 band, and we have some incredible plans coming up. We are all set to hit the US again and embark on a European tour this year. That’s not all; we also have some exciting shows and a studio session lined up that I just can’t wait for!

I just wanted to thank @robbflynn , Joseph, @jaredmaceachern , @matt.alston , and all the amazing Crew members I had the pleasure of working with during my time at MH.
I can’t thank you enough for the incredible opportunities and experiences that I had there. I’ll always cherish the crazy moments we shared together. I hope that MH continues to thrive in the future.

As for me, I’m focusing on the new Decap stuff but I’m also still ready to help out in case of any tour emergencies for other bands🤘”

His post garnered a reply from Machine Head vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn, who offered:

“Much respect Vogg. We were / are very fortunate to have had you for the time that we did. Absolute best with the future with the mighty Decapitated, and all the best to Gosia and the girls🖤👊🏻”
