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.

    This new stuff doesn't deliver for me like The Negation / Organic Hallucinosis does but I give my best wishes, have fun with the groove and enjoy the gigs. But I hope that one day we can hear some more cold, sharp music like you used to make.

    @Maquina_Muerte If you watch the 'Diary' DVD which is included with Blood Mantra (the Cd/DVD version) Vogg says actually there that their tours with Lamb of God/Meshuggah did influence them musically. He says basically that they listened to their music every night at the concerts, and this caused some bits of Meshuggah's style and LoG's style to merge with Vogg's style during the writing of their recent songs.
