Latest Decapitated News
Below is our complete Decapitated news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Before taking the stage this past Sunday (July 8) at New York City's B.B. King Blues Club & Grill stop of the Summer Slughter tour, vocalist Covan of Polish extreme metallers DECAPITATED reportedly told fans that his band will hit the road as direct support to AMON AMARTH on the Swedish group's first U.S. headlining tour this November.
DECAPITATED's latest effort, "Organic Halucinosis", is a pummeling wall of concise sound that has turned the heads and ears of many within the metal community. The "Day 69" music video, a featured track from "Organic Halucinosis", is available for viewing at Earache.com.
Guitarist & vocalist James Malone regretfully explains why ARSIS had to drop off the Revolver Magazine-sponsored Summer Slaughter Tour while supporting their latest release, United In Regret:
"Due to circumstances beyond our control, we've been forced to drop off the Summer Slaughter Tour. I do apologize to ALL the fans that missed seeing us. To make a long story short, everything was going great for us until we reached Sacramento, California. After that show, our van began to give us trouble - which surprised us since the van had just been in for repairs twice before the tour even started and we were sure the problem had been fixed. So we took the van in to the nearest dealership, were told the problem could be resolved in 3 days, and decided to wait in Sacramento until the van was fixed. It's now over 2 WEEKS LATER and the van STILL hasn't been repaired. Unfortunately, it's already too late for us to rent a vehicle. We've gone broke paying for hotels. Van rental fees + the cost of gas would have cost us a fortune to catch up to the tour. Please understand that we made the best decision we could with the information we were given. Unfortunately, it turns out we made the wrong decision."

DAATH has concocted a cocktail of metal’s most eclectic elements. The band will be releasing an exclusive remix of “Dead on the Dance Floor,” a track from their debut Roadrunner release, The Hinderers, via digital EP this summer. The track was remixed by Danny Lohner, ex-NIN and A Perfect Circle, and is due out in July. Daath guitarist and co-founder Eyal Levi states: “At some point in our lives each member of Daath has done their time with Nine Inch Nail’s music. They are a huge part of our musical upbringing and collaborating with one of their main minds is an honor that we are very excited about.” Describing their sound as “versatile,” Daath stray away from a traditional approach to death metal – weaving deep pockets of groove with electronic nuances, making a remix by Danny Lohner a natural progression for the band.
Having just completed a sold-out UK tour alongside metal juggernauts Unearth, Job For a Cowboy, and Despised Icon, Daath has returned to conquer North America.
Daath will hit the road on June 2nd and will tour through August 30th, showcasing their bombastic live show throughout North America. Their touring journey will begin as part of The Summer Slaughter Tour, featuring a bounty of respected extreme metal acts such as Necrophagist, Decapitated, Cephalic Carnage and Cattle Decapitation. Following Summer Slaughter they will play a string of select dates with Dying Fetus, Psyopus, and Covenance, until launching into this year’s Ozzfest. Daath will dominate the second stage with fellow underground acts such as Nile, 3 Inches of Blood and Chthonic and will be playing select Off-Fest dates with Nile. “This is a breakthrough time for extreme music,” Levi says, “Ozzfest has begun to pick up on the value of underground, truly extreme music. For us it’s not only a great honor, but also a huge opportunity to see how much we can help push the genre.”
Here's the complete list of Daath summer tour dates so far: More...

Nile's last album, Annihilation Of The Wicked was issued in May, 2005 through Relpase. Stay tuned for further updates on the band's next album.
In other live news, the band will tour Australia in May with support from DECAPITATED.
Polish death metallers DECAPITATED have commented on the recent cancellation of their European tour:
"We regret to inform that the Organic Hallucinosis European Tour ended as of March 7th due to extreme conditions that compromised the health and safety of all band and crew members. We are holding Rose Production responsible for making it impossible to continue, as they were not willing to repair the growing mechanical damages of the tour bus, nor were they able to provide a replacement vehicle. Also, the driver hired by Rose Production refused to travel further after the state of the bus had become clearly unsafe to drive. It was at that point that Decapitated and the other supporting bands had no other choice but to head home. We want to warn all the bands and labels - avoid Rose Productions! Not only did they fail to honor several important points in their contract with us, but even worse, they left us to rot in some of the poorest conditions we have ever seen on tour and would really like to prevent this from happening again to other people in the future. On the brighter side - to PHAZM, HATE, and our crew - we were glad to have you with us despite the unfortunate circumstances - the moments of laughter and complete mayhem will not be forgotten. To all the people who made it to the shows on the first half - thank you! Your support saved us once again. There were some really great turn outs at many of the venues and look forward to coming back soon. Any links to photos or footage would be greatly appreciated. Check back later for other Decapitated news and upcoming tour dates for summer and fall 2007."

May 23 - Adelaide, AUS @ Uni Bar
May 24 - Melbourne, AUS @ The Hifi Bar
May 25 - Sydney, AUS @ Manning Bar

NILE in May 2006 signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records. A new studio album is expected later in the year.
The show for Friday, Nov 17th, was slated for 8 pm and based on previous experience at the Palladium in Worcester, MA I figured I'd show up around 8.30. Alas, when I got in Hypocrisy were just starting their set, which meant I had missed Decapitated. The place was already quite full and the floor was almost jam- packed. When I first heard of this tour's lineup, I wasn't sure about the crossing point between the fans and how well they'd mix together but luckily the bands had a good number of devoted fans and one could easily mistake who the headliner is based on the crowd's cheering.

Fear Factory has mapped out dates for a late-year traveling thrash caravan, with fellow metalists Suffocation, Hypocrisy, and Decapitated along for the ride.
The band will kick things off Thursday (10/26) near Sacramento, CA, with 37 stops around the continent planned through mid-December for the outing, which the group has dubbed the Machines at War tour.
"I'm really excited about doing a heavy tour like this," the band's drummer, Raymond Herrera, said in a press release. "A brutal line-up full of metal pioneers has been a long time coming. I guarantee a lot of our fans will agree. Plus you'll be certain to hear some Fear Factory songs that have not been played live in quite some time."
"Transgression," the band's eighth studio effort, and second for Liquid Eight Records, was released in August 2005. "The Best of Fear Factory," hit stores this September.
Fear Factory has toured extensively the last two years supporting "Transgression" and 2004's "Archetype," and spent large parts of 2005 supporting Megadeth on its Gigantour, along with Dream Theater, Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore.
The band is currently collaborating with photographer Omer Cordell on a photo book documenting last year's tour and its Gigantour appearances.

You can now catch a glimpse of the final trailer for Earache Records’ forthcoming videogame online. ‘Earache Extreme Metal Racing’ is due to be released in the UK and Europe on November 3rd on PlayStation 2, PSP and PC and is set to take the videogaming world by storm.
The game features ten evil Earache racing teams battling it out on a torturous track that takes the wicked racers into the depths of hell and beyond. The teams you can drive around the 4 satanically-inspired levels include Mortiis, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Akercocke, Decapitated, Biomechanical, Municipal Waste, The Berzerker, Linea77 and Society 1.
For the first time this game introduces the world of video gaming to the genre of extreme metal head on, as fans will simultaneously be able to race their favourite artists whilst doing battle to over 3 hours of Earache’s most annihilating releases. The soundtrack to this brutal game not only features music and videos from the racing teams, but also includes tracks from classic Earache bands such as Napalm Death, At The Gates, Cathedral plus bonus unreleased material and videos.
SUFFOCATION have completed work on their new music video for the track 'Abomination Reborn' from it's brand new, self-titled album.
The video, the first from the record, was shot in Brooklyn, NY with director Frankie Nasso (MUDVAYNE, HATEBREED, MISERY INDEX) and producers Dale Resteghini and Melissa Manousos of Raging Nations Films. Still images from the video, which will make it's international debut in early October, can be viewed here.
Suffocation saw its North American release this past Tuesday, September 19th with an international release set for Monday, September 25th. An e-card previewing Suffocation, featuring the tracks 'Abomination Reborn' and 'Blind Torture Kill', can be viewed at this location.
Additionally, SUFFOCATION will undertake an extended fall tour of North America with FEAR FACTORY, HYPOCRISY, and DECAPITATED starting October 26th at The Pound in San Francisco.

This time around we are going to be direct support... which means that we are gonna have more time to play a longer set. Six Feet Under is going to be the headlining band plus Decapitated, Cattle Decapitation and Abysmal Dawn are on the bill too; a fuckin’ brutal tour. We hope to see all you death metal maniacs, without you we are nothing.”
