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 20-plus year career, DECAPITATED have released six studio albums, which are considered to be some of the most influential death metal releases of the 21st century. Recording across a couple of locations in their homeland and mixed by Daniel Bergdstrand (Meshuggah, Behemoth), seventh album 'Anticult' continues the band's punishing but expansive Death Metal assault into Metal's big league. "This album sounds very organic and raw," muses guitarist Waclaw 'Vogg' Kieltyka. "Every song is different. The opener is technical, the next song is a mix of rock and metal with a focus on riffs and big melodies. There are catchy choruses, something progressive and real death metal. There is always something new to discover." Their recent touring history has also shaped this release. "We went from playing toilet venues to playing with Lamb Of God, Behemoth and Meshuggah. We watched them every night, saw how they operated and conducted themselves, how they performed. We learned a lot," notes Vogg. "For us it's about developing that show. I can't wait to play these songs live and see people's reactions."
