DECAPITATED Spheres of Madness
After two years of inactivity due to tragic circumstances, DECAPITATED founding member Wacek "Vogg" Kieltyka issued a statement declaring the band is back and will begin touring in 2010:
"It's time to come back! After a two-year break, Decapitated is coming back with new members. The official new line-up for Decapitated will be announced at the end of December.
"As you all know, the decision to continue the band was really, really hard for me, but everything I do now is to keep Decapitated alive. [Vocalist] Covan's situation has not improved much and he is still in bed and unable to function on his own. He still fights to recover as we speak and we are all still 100% behind him and hope for the best. It has been the hardest thing for me to move on without [brother and drummer] Vitek by my side, but he would have wanted me to continue with the band.
"Finally, I have found some great musicians who can continue the work of Vitek and Covan. At the beginning of April, Decapitated will start to play our first reunion shows. We will visit the biggest cities in Australia and play some of the biggest summer festivals in Europe. Don't worry, we won't forget about the U.K.! After this, the band will concentrate on the making of a new album! I would like to thank all the people who have supported us all this time."
It's odd that he doesn't acknowledge already announced drummer Kerim "Krimh" Lechner. Is he no longer in the band? I guess we will find out in December. The band is expected to do a US tour after their run of European festivals. Here is a video of new drummer, Krimh, that the dudes over at target="_blank">MetalSucks found:
