Author Arto Mäenpää - 23.5.2022

Formed in 1996, Decapitated built a reputation over the years as one of the international leaders of the “tech death” genre. Over its 26-year career, Decapitated has released seven studio albums, which are considered to be some of the most influential death metal releases of the 21st century. The tech death metal virtuosos will release their eighth studio album, “Cancer Culture”, on May 27 via Nuclear Blast Records. Band’s guitarist and main song writer Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka previously stated about “Cancer Culture”:

“The expectations were high, and we also gave ourselves a massive challenge with this album. But I think hard work pays off.

“We had an opportunity to gather amazing people who took care of the production and helped us deliver the best we could with this album.
Again, Jarek Szubrycht (‘Carnival Is Forever’) has written amazing lyrics for us about the disproportion between the dreams, ambitions, and aspirations of humanity.

“The leading engineer of the album was Tomasz Zed Zalewski (‘Anticult’),David Castillo, responsible for mixing the album, and Ted Jensen for the final touch for mastering. For the cover, for the first time, we have worked with Fabio Timpanaro, an Italian artist whose art perfectly describes what we wanted to tell through visual art.

“Don’t misinterpret the title meaning of the album. It has a much broader context. You will be surprised at what we have delivered this time.”

Chaoszine had the chance recently to sat down via Zoom with the band’s guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka and talked about his roots as a guitarist and what got him into playing death metal and metal music in general. You can watch the interview fully below:
