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.
