Polish death metallers DECAPITATED will enter Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland on August 1 with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski to begin recording their new album, entitled "Organic Hallucinosis". The follow-up to 2004's "The Negation" will feature artwork and layout by Seth (ROTTING CHRIST, PARADISE LOST) and is tentatively scheduled for release in January/February 2006.
DECAPITATED will embark on a European headlining tour in September, with support from GOREROTTED, DETONATION and DAM. A U.S. tour with VADER and DEW-SCENTED will follow in November.
DECAPITATED recently parted ways with vocalist Sauron and replaced him with Covan, formerly of ATROPHIA RED SUN.
After nine years Sauron has announced he is leaving Decapitated. His position in the band is going to be taken over by Covan, a previous member of Atrophia Red Sun. He is going to take part in the recording of the new album and the forthcoming gigs of the band.
Here is Sauron's statement pertaining to this situation:
"After long consideration I have decided to leave Decapitated. It was not an easy decision, however, I could reconcile the welfare of the band with my personal plans, and hence quitting appeared to be the best solution not hampering the evolution of Decapitated. In the face of the wide-scaled plans of the band I had to decide between being a member of Decapitated and my personal objectives. Moreover, another reason that contributed to my decision have been some health complications. In the first place I would like to thank my friends from the band for those nine years. I would also like to salute all the fans and people who supported us throughout all those years. I’m turning the mike over to an appropriate person, and what is more, I’m sure that this change will do good to the band. Respect and good luck, Covan! For my part, I’m going to keep track of Decapitated and support them in every possible way.
After two extremely successful shows in Portugal, DECAPITATED is ready to begin writing process for band's new studio album. The recording session starts in August at Hertz Studio, Bialystok. The world premiere of the new album has been scheduled for January/ February 2006. Right after the recording session the guys are going to tour intensively as much as they can, promoting the successor of "The Negation." On the 8th of September they kick off their European tour, with 12 gigs in England, Ireland and Scotland, 10 shows in such countries like Germany, Holland, Belgium, France and Czech Republic. From the 5th of November DECAPITATED will be crushing the United States (along with VADER, DEW-SCENTED and other bands) and then, the band will headline a tour in Canada (01.12.2005- 10.12.2005). In March Polish death metallers will invade Russia, the Ukraine and Baltic countries. There are also some plans to attack the Balkans, Greece and Turkey, Israel and play on some summer festivals.
Gorerotted are confirmed as special guest for the Decapitated tour beginning September 9 to 29. The tour will take our favourite zombieheads all over Europe. There will be another two support bands added to the line-up.
