DECAPITATED 101: New Album, New Video, New Tour With THY ART IS MURDER & Support From FALLUJAH / GHOST BATH

There is a lot currently going on in the world of Polish metal band Decapitated. So much that it may take a discourse to cover it all. Welcome to Decapitated 101, so to speak, and we’ll start with the news of a new studio album.

Anticult‘ will be released through Nuclear Blast on July 7th and we have the band’s Official Video for the song ‘Never‘. Vocalist Rasta (a.k.a. Rafał Piotrowski) weighed in about the subject matter of “Never“, offering this insight into the lyrical content:

“There is no mystical, doomish fate waiting for us. The only judgment pending is our own. The simple relationship between cause and effect is what determines our future. We are now witnessing something that should never have happened — our homes have become our civilization’s grave.”

“Anticult” track listing:

01. Impulse
02. Deathvaluation
03. Kill The Cult
04. One-Eyed Nation
05. Anger Line
06. Earth Scar
07. Never
08. Amen

In further Decapitated news, the band will co-headline a North American tour with Australia’s Thy Art Is Murder this August/September. Joining them are progressive death metal masters Fallujah and depressive black metal sensations Ghost Bath providing direct support.

Comments Thy Art Is Murder guitarist Andy Marsh:

“C.J. [McMahon] has returned, and so we shall return to North America’s shores once again. This time we are honored to announce we will be joined by an all Nuclear Blast lineup featuring death metal icons Decapitated, plus our friends in Fallujah and Ghost Bath. These will be the only North American dates for us in 2017 and we plan on putting on our best dresses and bringing the best show we can to your shores. Tickets go on sale Friday!”
