Polish death metal band Decapitated is continuing work at Radio Gdansk Studio in Poland recording the band's Nuclear Blast debut and follow-up to 2006’s "Organic Hallucinosis." Guitarist & founding member Wacek Kieltyka checks in once again from the studio:

"The first week of recording is over. We've done the drums and prepared them to be mixed by Daniel [Bergstrand]. Since yesterday, we've been looking for the right guitar sound and we've already come up with a few ideas. We've got heaps of different speakers, heads, effects and we're trying to pick the gear with the sound most suitable to the new riffs. It's very probable that I'll use again a transistor head in conjunction with a tube head - the combination that had always worked out well for Decap. Also, I'm recording in a large room to take advantage of its ambiance and to let the sound flow freely.”

Drummer Kerim "Krimh" Lechner offers another update on drums:

“Hello guys! My work is done. I finished recording all drums in 3 days. I didn’t expect that it would be that fast, but I am happy about that. So now we have more time for guitars, bass, and vocals. These last days we’ve spent listening to all the drum tracks and choosing the best parts. Each song takes us about 3-4 hours and you have to spend a few days to listen through all the songs. Now we will send all the drum tracks to Daniel Bergstrand who will do a first mix of the drums so we can start recording guitars. The drum kit with all the microphones on it looked great but now we had to move it for the guitar amps. Yesterday we tried out the first 4 heads and some of them sounded really good. We will see in the next days which ones we will choose!”

Decapitated’s fifth studio album is being produced by Wacek Kieltyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums have been recorded with Daniel Bergstrand, who is also handling mixing duties.

Deathbringer, it's about time to change that avatar and show the current line-up.
About the record: i'm pretty sure it's gonna be awesome. Wacek had soo many great riffs to choose for this one. I just have to remind you gus that Decap was planning to hit the studio some months after the bus crash. So the majority of the stuff was prepaired then, more than two years ago. And i'm sure that he had lots of ideas during this time till the present.
