DECAPITATED have announced a new album!
Titled Cancer Culture, the upcoming album from the Polish technical death metal band is the follow-up to 2017’s Anticult and is scheduled to be released in May this year, via Nuclear Blast Records.
Speaking about the upcoming album, guitarist Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kieltyka says, “finally, after so many months of waiting, we reached it. The announcement of our brand new album Cancer Culture and a new single is on! The expectations were high, and we also gave ourselves a massive challenge with this album. But I think hard work pays off. We had an opportunity to gather amazing people who took care of the production and helped us deliver the best we could with this album. Again, Jarek Szubrycht (Carnival Is Forever) has written amazing lyrics for us about the disproportion between the dreams, ambitions, and aspirations of humanity. The leading engineer on the album was Tomasz Zed Zalewski (Anticult), David Castillo, responsible for mixing the album, and Ten Jensen for the final touch for mastering. For the cover, for the first time, we worked with Fabio Timpanaro, an Italian artist whose art perfectly describes what we wanted to tell through visual art. Don’t misinterpret the meaning of the album title. It has a much broader context. You will be surprised at what we have delivered this time.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released the first song from the upcoming album; the title track Cancer Culture. Speaking about the new song, Vogg adds, “it wasn’t easy to pick the first single from Cancer Culture. Each song has a different vibe that we want to show as soon as possible and are proud of them all. Since Cancer Culture is the first song from the album, we decided that this would be the perfect way to introduce you to new music. It is the album’s opening chapter, and you know what you can expect.”
