Formed in 1996 Polish Tech Death masters DECAPITATED built a reputation over the years as one of the international leaders of their genre. Over their near 20-yeor career, DECAPITATED has released live
studio albums, which are considered to be some of the most influential death metal releases of the 21st century.
For their sixth full-length record, the band returned to Hertz Studio, located at Bialystok in their native Poland. Recording the new creation, entitled "Blood Mantra", has proven to be an extremely demanding
process. The band has cross-bred various styles and sounds, setting the bar higher with this new release. Flirting with various tempos, mixing Death Metal with Grindcore, Block Metal atmosphere with more
groove Ioden beats and Stoner-Rock vibes, there are also modern metal rhythmic riffs on DECAPITATED's latest output that hark back to their 2006 release, "Organic Hallucinosis".
"I'm certain that the very fact we are again, alter nine years, in Hertz studio will evoke the spirit of that album. The vocals sound very promising. Rasia is a much more experienced vocalist compared to the "Carnival Is Forever" album times. And his voice sounds more powerful and deeper", stated guitarist Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka.
With their emphasis on inventive songwriting and technical prowess DECAPITATED has earned the respect of their musical peers and have gained a devoted fan base. Vogg, the band's musical mastermind, creates songs that often feature blazing tempos, crushing riffs and memorable guitar solos - all of which can be expected on their new release, "Blood Mantra".
