DECAPITATED picture
Decapitated is a technical death metal band from Poland. They formed in 1996 in Krosno in southern Poland, when all the members were still attending music school.

They released their first demo Cemeterial Gardens in 1997 and their second demo, The Eye of Horus in 1998. After these releases, the band was considered as genuine contenders of the underground metal community, and eventually signed with Wicked World/Earache Records for the release of the debut album, Winds of Creation.

With Vitek (1984-2007) and Vogg (being aged 23) they are one of the youngest bands in the genre to have had success. Martin and Vogg conjointly hold gigs with the Polish experimental symphonic/technical black metal band Lux Occulta.

Decapitated also toured the UK upon the release of Winds of Creation, and in light of a phenomenal response, the band was led to being voted "Best Newcomer" in Terrorizer Magazine's 2000 Reader's

DECAPITATED The Negation

Album · 2004 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Negation" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Polish death metal act Decapitated. The album was released through Wicked World/Earache Records in February 2004. "The Negation" is the successor to the very successful "Nihility" from 2002. At this point the original lineup were intact (that would change after this album) and the band were often labelled one of the most promising young European death metal acts in various contemporary metal media.

The music on "The Negation" is death metal played with great technical skill. Don´t mistake that description for this being technical death metal, it´s just really well played. Vogg is what I like to call a riff meister extraordinaire. It´s not always easy to create memorable and catchy riffs playing music as brutal as this, but Vogg is not your average death metal guitarist. While the music certainly is brutal, Vogg also ensures memorability by incorporating groove to his razor sharp riffing. The other members are of course also well playing and while Sauron is neither the most distinct sounding nor the most intelligible growling vocalist I´ve listened to, he gets the job done.

For all the praise I have given to Vogg above, the riffs on "The Negation" actually aren´t as memorable nor as catchy as they are on the two albums that bookend it. No matter how many spins I give "The Negation" many of the tracks just won´t stick. But then it´s of course great that we´re treated to tracks like "The Fury", "Lying and Weak" and the title track, that feature quite a bit of memorability factor. Especially "Lying and Weak" stand out as THE highlight of the album to me.

Besides featuring excellent musicianship and relatively strong songwriting, "The Negation" also features a very well sounding production. Brutal and powerful. "The Negation" is the kind of album where I feel slightly bad only giving it a 3.5 star (70%) rating but IMO it just doesn´t live up to the extremely high quality of "Nihility (2002)" because some of the tracks aren´t that memorable. So I think that rating is fair even though this is generally a great death metal album.

Listening to this album for the first time, all I could think of is “wow, this is taking death metal to newer and better levels.” Then reading on Wikipedia how old these guys where when they made this album...in all fairness, I was astounded. During the recording of this album, the ages of these guys was between 15 to 18. And to be playing this kind of stuff at their ages...wow very impressive.

For those who have never heard Decapitated, the best way to describe their sound is the perfect mix of the brutality of Cannibal Corpse with the technicality and musicianship of Death. And this can be perfectly heard on this album. The technicality of the music isn't the type with giant fast guitar solos, but more in the fastness and tightness of what these guys can do. Vitek's (who at the time was 16) drumming is just out of this world. His feet are actually faster than a Nigerians. The guitar sound on this album is killer too, which is really impressive for a debut.

The only problem I had with this album, and it was such a big problem that it did let it down a lot for me was the vocals. This style of grunting probably was quite different back then, but because it's all the rage now in the deathcore genre, I just don't really like it. Sauron is an alright vocalist, the only problem is that he seems to be only to do one type of growl and doesn't really do enough vocal dynamics for me. Also, it's very hard to make out a word he is saying, which is a shame, because the lyrics are pretty damn good.

The title track which opens the album is the perfect mix of extremity and rather melodic passages. The long instrumental at the start is a brilliant moment on the album, completely summing up the talent these guys have.

“The Eye Of Horus” is probably one of the most technical songs on the album. The many different passages and time changes throughout really make this track a very exciting tune to listen to.

“9 Steps” is the attempt at a sing along moment on the album. Obviously it's very heavy and not really a pop moment, but nontheless it would provoke a crowd to shout along.

In conclusion, I would say to give this a listen. Sadly the vocals did slightly ruin the album for me, but the music is just stellar, in fact, if this was an instrumental album, I'd probably like it even more. Some may think of this as a classic, but I really see this as a triumph of things to come.

RIP Vitek

Decapitated have had a very important role in death metal history, and a quite underlooked one at that. While the American death metal scene slowly watered down and became more quieter, the Europeans started to pick up the genre and really morph it. Bands like Dissection and Necrophagist did give the genre a slightly more technical and more epic feel, but the sound really had been given an extra oomph by these Polish death metal veterans.

One of the biggest highlights of this album has to be the production. In many ways the production reminds me of Zyklon's “Disintegrate”, but maybe even more extreme. The guitars and drum combination on this album really are mindblowing and are totally in your face the whole time. The sound on this album is probably the bands more technical moments

This album also sees the only time vocalist Covan would perform on one of the band's releases. I do actually enjoy his voice a lot on this album. His vocals remind me a mixture of a more gruffer version of John Tardy from Obituary mixed with Robb Flynn's more gruffer vocals.

Sadly, this album was the last album to feature drummer Vitek, after he tragically died in a car crash, just after the album's resale. In many ways this album is the perfect tribute, because his drumming on this album is absolutely fantastic, and really does show how he really was one of the most talented drummers in metal history.

The album opener “A Poem About An Old Prison Man” is a brilliant intro. With dark foreboding lyrics taken from a poem written by Charles Manson, it matches well with the absolutely chaotic riffs and insane drumming. “Day 69” has some rather Nile sounding riffs, which always is able to add atmosphere to certain moments.

One of the albums more interesting moments has to be on the album's 2 longest compositions “Post(?)Organic” and “Visual Delusion.” Due to their longer track times, the songs obviously have a lot more added to them, with a lot of interesting twists and turns, that show the technical side to the band.

In conclusion, this album proves that these guys are a dominant force in the death metal world. This album is definitely one of the heaviest these guys have released. If you like death metal brutal, then this is the perfect mixture of good musicianship and earth shattering sounds.

RIP Vitek

Decapitated revived

Almost four years after Vitek's tragic death and Covan's departure due to slow recovery, Decapitated has returned with 5th record released by Nuclear Blast. I bet that many fans of the band felt a slight prick of anxiety at the sight of CARNIVAL IS FOREVER cover art. Samara from "The Ring" wearing a bunny mask does not bode well. Fortunately, Vogg & Co do not ply us with pretentious metalcore crap. What's more, the cover art actually turned out to be a great complement to the album's obscure ambiance.

Besides being a very talented guitarist and composer, Vogg knows how to make extreme metal sound good. CARNIVAL IS FOREVER assaults the listener with organic, selective and brutal combination of technical death metal, post-thrash metal and... wait, hardcore vocals? Yep, that's what everybody was so upset about. Hardcore vocals are so untrue. I can't say I do not miss Covan's growling, but Rafał's thrash/hardcore roaring is absolutely acceptable. So stop complaining, please.

Having the amazing ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS still ringing in my head, I was somewhat underwhelmed with the offering from the reborn Decapitated. While they continue with the djenty/post-thrash style known from the previous album, I was hoping for another step towards their own musical identity. Rather than that, they made thrash metal the prevalent element and thereby recorded a post-thrash metal album with a sharp death metal edge. Now, I'm not by any means saying that they lost their identity. Decapitated still sound like Decapitated, a band with style influenced by artists you can easily point at. That's the point, the influences are still a bit too obvious. Besides that, I have nothing else to complain about. CARNIVAL IS FOREVER is a great record that has grown on me after repeated listens. Fantastic riffs and breaks are what Decapitated were always best at. The main theme from "A View from A Hole" is a proof that nothing has changed in that matter.

CARNIVAL IS FOREVER is a great post-thrash/death metal album and if only it was a little bit more daring and experimental, I'd call it a masterpiece. Despite an interesting atmosphere, songwriting is a tad too restrained and I can't help but hope for some more spontaneity from Decapitated on their next stay in the studio.

UMUR
"Carnival is Forever" is the 5th full-length studio album by Polish death/ thrash metal act Decapitated. The album was released in July 2011 by Nuclear Blast Records. The lineup on "Carnival is Forever" is almost completely different from the lineup that recorded "Organic Hallucinosis (2006)" as Decapitated were involved in a serious tour bus accident in October 2007 in Gomel, Belarus where drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka and lead vocalist Adrian "Covan" Kowanek were badly injured. Covan survived the crash but was seriously injured and was unable to continue playing music while Vitek died from his injuries on the 2nd of November 2007. Bassist Marcin "Martin" Rygiel also left the band following the tragic incident. So guitarist/ main composer Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka (brother of Vitek) put the band on hold and spent some of the intermediate years touring with Vader. For a long time the future of Decapitated was uncertain. However in March 2009 Vogg announced that he was looking for new members for Decapitated as he had opted to continue the band. New members of the lineup are drummer Kerim "Krimh" Lechner, lead vocalist Rafal Piotrowski and bassist Filip "Heinrich" Halucha.

Even though Vogg was always the main composer in Decapitated, the music on "Carnival is Forever" has changed quite a lot compared to the older material. There was never a question that all four previous releases were death metal albums but "Carnival is Forever" tests the boundaries of death metal and much of the album should probably be tagged thrash metal rather than death metal. While there are some growling vocals on the album they are not many. The vocals are in the aggressive vein of a vocalist like Jens Kidman (Meshuggah) rather than the barking Barney imitation of former vocalist Covan. Musically speaking Meshuggah is actually also a rather valid reference. Razor sharp odd metered chugging technical riffing and a generally powerful and aggressive sound. Decapitated are more straight forward/less twisted than a band like Meshuggah though but that shouldn´t be interpreted as if Decapitated play simple or that their music is structurally simple. The music is very technically complex and as always it´s hard not to be extremely impressed by Vogg´s ability to write crushingly heavy and razor sharp riffs. The man is a riff meister extraordinaire. The three new members also deliver with conviction, but especially the vocal style of new lead vocalist Rafal Piotrowski, will probably divide the waters. Personally I would have preferred a more regular growling vocal style but there´s no denying that Rafal Piotrowski´s vocal style fits the new thrashier direction pretty well.

Decapitated always understood the art of limitation and that virtue continues on "Carnival is Forever". 42:45 minutes of playing time distributed over 8 tracks. That´s what you get. And that is IMO a perfect length for an album featuring music that is as relatively extreme as the material is on this album. The length of the album ensures that it has impact all the way through and that you want to give it more spins when it is over. "Keep the listener hungry" seems to be the motto.

"Carnival is Forever" is the proof that Decapitated have survived the serious crisis that was a consequence of the fatal tour bus accident in 2007. They´ve developed their style in a thrashier direction but they haven´t lost their identity or their trademark sound. Vogg´s clever riffs and playing style ensure that something like that will never happen. A 3.5 - 4 star rating is warranted.
