Decapitated: Studio Report #2
February 23, 2011
Polish technical death metal band Decapitated continue their work at Radio Gdańsk Studio in Poland recording their Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s 'Organic Hallucinosis'.

Guitarist & founding member Wacek Kiełtyka checks in once again from the studio:

The first week of recording is over. We've done the drums and prepared them to be mixed by Daniel [Bergstrand]. Since yesterday, we've been looking for the right guitar sound and we've already come up with a few ideas. We've got heaps of different speakers, heads, effects and we're trying to pick the gear with the sound most suitable to the new riffs. It's very probable that I'll use again a transistor head in conjunction with a tube head - the combination that had always worked out well for DECAP. Also, I'm recording in a large room to take advantage of its ambience and to let the sound flow freely.

Drummer Kerim "Krimh" Lechner offers another update on drums:

Hello guys! My work is done. I finished recording all drums in 3 days. I didn’t expect that it would be that fast, but I am happy about that. So now we have more time for guitars, bass, and vocals. These last days we’ve spent listening to all the drum tracks and choosing the best parts. Each song takes us about 3-4 hours and you have to spend a few days to listen through all the songs. Now we will send all the drum tracks to Daniel Bergstrand who will do a first mix of the drums so we can start recording guitars. The drum kit with all the microphones on it looked great but now we had to move it for the guitar amps. Yesterday we tried out the first 4 heads and some of them sounded really good. We will see in the next days which ones we will choose!

Preliminary song titles used for the recording sessions (excerpted from studio photos) include:

-Riff 1 Clean
-Fast One (Need More!!!)
-7 Idea
-Witek Idea
-Chilis Assasin
-Clean Song

Decapitated's fifth studio album is being produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums have been recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (Behemoth, Meshuggah, Dimmu Borgir, Keep Of Kalessin, Defleshed), who is also handling mixing duties.

HOME TOWN: Krosno, Poland
Covan - Vocals
Vogg - Guitar
Vitek (R.I.P.) - Drums

Decapitated is a technical death metal band from Poland. They formed in 1996 in Krosno in southern Poland, when the average age of the band was fourteen and all the members were still attending music school.

Decapitated released their first demo, Cemeterial Gardens, in 1997 and released their debut album, Winds of Creation, three years later. Its successor, Nihility is a more condensed, brutal and technical album, with an almost industrial guitar tone.

Their 2004 album The Negation, and their latest, Organic Hallucinosis, both have a fuller, more classical death metal tone. In summer 2005, Sauron, the band's vocalist, quit the band, due to "health complications", according to Sauron. Replacing him is a vocalist by the name of Covan, a previous member of Atrophia Red Sun. The group is currently signed to Nuclear Blast.

Their latest album, Organic Hallucinosis, was released on the 13th of February 2006. Martin rejoined Decapitated after the army wanted him due to conscription in Poland and nearly faced going to court despite the rumours of problems concerning the label - which were untrue.

On 29 October 2007, while travelling to a show in Gomel, Belarus, the band was involved in an automobile accident. Their tour bus collided with a truck carrying wood, injuring Vitek and Covan. While it was initially believed that they were taken to Moscow to be treated after treatment at a local hospital, it was later confirmed that they were only taken to be treated in Novozybkov, where they have remained for the time being.

Covan has since shown signs of improvement. The bus was said to be 'beyond repair' following the crash, an indication of the impact of the collision. On 2 November 2007, the band's drummer Witold "Vitek" Kiełtyka died in the hospital from head injuries sustained in the accident. He was 23 years old.
