28 NOVEMBER 2014 - BLOOD MANTRA TOUR: DECAPITATED, THY DISEASE, MATERIA, THE SIXPOUNDER
Decapitated - Death Metal (Krosno)
Decapited is one of the most recognized Polish death metal bands that is also renowned abroad. The band was formed in 1996 in Krosno by guitarist Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka, drummer Witold “Vitek” Kiełtyka and vocalist Wojciech “Sauron” Wąsowicz. A few months later, bassist, Marcin “Martin” Rygiel joined the band. Decpitated released two demos – “Cemeteral Gardens” (1997) and “The Eye of Horus” (1998), which paved the way for first professional contract. A debut album, “Winds of Creation”, was released in 2000 by Earache Records label. It was a widely acclaimed LP, which alongside vivid live performances paid off and resulted in another releases.
The second album, “Nihility”, had been released in the beginning of 2002 and the third album, “The Negation”, came out two years later. Both albums were released by Earache Records label. Also, the band was invited to Ozzfest to perform as a supporting act to Tool, Slayer and Ozzy Osbourne. In 2005, Decapitated made their first European tour as a headliner accompanied by Dies Irae, Hate and Crionics. In 2005, there were some changes to a bands` line-up – Wojciech Wąsowicz left the band to join Masochist, and his place was taken by Adrian “Covan” Kowanek (formerly performed in Atrophia Red Sun).
The reinvigorated band recorded the fourth album – the last one with Earache Records label. The “Organic Hallucinosis” LP was released in the USA, Europe and Japan at the same time. After glowing reviews the band was offered to do several gigs across the United States. A few months later Decapitated performed along with Fear Factory and Suffocation and toured across Australia and New Zealand together with Nile. Also, the band was invited to the summer edition of Summer Slaughter Tour across the USA, where the crew performed along with Necrophagist.
That successfully developing career was curbed in 2007, when a car accident happened. As a result of that accident Witold Kiełtyka died and new vocalist, Adrian Kowanek, was seriously injured. In 2009, guitarist, Wacław Kiełtyka, re-established the band. He asked bassist, Filip Hałucha, vocalist, Rafał Piotrowski and the Austrian drummer, Kerim Lechner, to collaborate.
In 2010, the renewed band had an opportunity to see how the new line-up was working together. Numerous gigs including tours in England and Australia or performances throughout the largest summer European festivals resulted in another album, “Carnival is Forever”, released in 2011. The album hit the 17th place on the Billboard Top Heatseekers in the USA and was voted the 3rd in a poll “the Best Polish Heavy Metal Album” held by the Machina magazine. After making another changes to the bands` line-up, Decapitated promoted its album on a tour across Europe and the USA alongside Meshuggah and Lamb of God as well as the most significant festivals all over the world.
A premiere of a new album, “Blood Mantra”, is due in 2014 as announced by Nuclear Blast / Mystic
