Biography

Krosno, Poland (1996 – 2007, 2009 – present)

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/ 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 Poll, and a further European tour in 2001 with Immolation continued to contribute to the band’s musical reputation.

Vogg recently stated that he is looking for a new line-up to keep the band alive.

History

Decapitated released their first demo entitled Cemeterial Gardens in 1997 and released their debut album, called Winds of Creation, three years later. Nihility was the follow-up of Winds of Creation.

Their 2004 album, The Negation, along with their latest effort Organic Hallucinosis both have a fuller, more classical death metal tone. In summer 2005, the band’s vocalist Sauron quit the band.

    Meshuggah, but more brutal.

    "Post Organic" isn't within the top 15? I'd say it's their best tune. [3]

    Bought Carnival... and I'm feeling slightly underwhelmed by it. Musically it's great but I don't like the vocals and I think with better vocals I'd have enjoyed it more. It'll still get played as it is a good album.

    Meshuggah vibes? Or is it just me?

    well, I think the new track has some influence from Organic Hallucinosis and as well Carnival... but it's really just a average track for decapitated... What I don't like is the lack of ideas, brutal beginning, then the start/stop riffs that sound like in Pest for example..., another brutal chug, and then it's the end of the song... Cool solo though

    I don't feel the new track. It's probably because of the vocalist, nothing against him personally, but I don't like his voice.

    I have to second this v ..nice song but neither is it on par with anything from carnival is forever nor anything from organic hallucinosis imo

    New song doesn't do much for me. Where are the good riffs like on Organic Hallucinosis & earlier albums? Boring blast beats as well. I liked Carnival is Forever but not sure how this new one will turn out.

    Carnival is Forever is a very decent album, but I can't help but hear a poor man's Organic Hallucinosis in it.
