Poland’s DECAPITATED have announced their new lineup. Joining founding guitarist/songwriter/vocalist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka, are Rafal Piotrowski (vocals), Filip “Henrich” Halucha (bass), and Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (drums).
Vogg commented: “I am really happy to announce this short message for all DECAPITATED fans: As you all know, two years after the tragedies we had to suffer, I decided to continue the band. There’s no sense in stopping this amazing thing we built up so many years ago together with Witek [Witold Kieltyka, drummer, R.I.P.], Sauron [Wojciech Wisowicz, the band’s first lead singer], Martin [Marcin Rygiel, the band’s first bassist] and Covan [Adrian Kowanek, second vocalist, still recovering from injuries]. We chose to do our first tour in the U.K. because we have only good memories from this place and we are sure that you guys will support us… We need you!! I am very pleased to announce the new killer line-up of DECAPITATED: Kerim ‘Krimh’ Lechner on drums – he’s a new blood, very talented and used to playing in bands like THORNS OF IVY and TONE INTIMACY; amazing Rafal Piotrowski comes from bands like KETHA and FORGOTTEN SOULS and will take over vocal duties; masterous Filip ‘Heinrich’ Halucha from VESENIA, ROOTWATER, UNSUN and MASACHIST will be destroying the bass! See you all soon! We honestly can’t wait!”
The band will be touring Europe the first half of 2010. A North American tour is on the horizon for the Summer of 2010.
