Polish metal’s Decapitated are preparing the release of their eighth studio album Cancer Culture. The record hits everywhere on May 27th via Nuclear Blast (pre-order here).
The title track has been unveiled to herald the coming album. Scroll down below the words to hear it.
Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kieltyka comments on the single:
“It wasn’t easy to pick the first single from Cancer Culture. Each song has this different vibe that we would like to show as soon as possible and be proud of. 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. “
“Finally, after so many months of waiting, we got 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 of the album was Tomasz Zed Zalewski (Anticult), David Castillo, responsible for mixing the album, and Ted Jensen for the final touch for mastering. For the cover, for the first time, we have worked with Fabio Timpanaro, an Italian artist whose art perfectly describes what we wanted to tell through visual art. Don’t misinterpret the title meaning of the album. It has a much broader context. You will be surprised at what we have delivered this time.”
Several guest performers will appear on the record, including members Jinjer on the song “Hello Death” and members of Machine Head on “Iconoloclast.” Decapitated guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka has been performing live with Machine Head over recent years.
