DECAPITATED drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka sadly passed away at the age of 23 on November 2, 2007 after succumbing to head injuries sustained in a bad van accident in Russia. The band have posted this message on their MySpace page:

"For the people who are sending messages and friend requests:

Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to each and every person due to the overwhelming response followed by the tragic events of last October. The friends and families of Covan (vocals) and Vitek will do their best in keeping you up to date with news on DECAPITATED and everything pertaining to the Vitek and Covan Charity Fund. The auction and tribute shirts have been temporarily delayed - but they are still in the works and should be up and running in the near future.

We are also waiting on a statement from Covan's family about his current condition. As far as we know, he is stable and on his way to a full recovery. We have high hopes for the future.

Thanks again to everyone for your amazing show of support. It really means the world to us. Please check back for updates."

I am glad to hear that Covan is all right. I heard rumors that they might play at the Summer Slaughter, and I hope those are true. It would be a shame if they never got to perform again.

Nice play on words there... I read the headline the first time and thought nothing of it. I saw it again just now and was thinking "how could someone recover from being decapitated?"
