Polish technical death metal band DECAPITATED will enter RG Studio in Gdansk, Poland on February 9 to begin recording its fifth studio album for a late 2010 release via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2006's "Organic Hallucinosis" will be produced by Wacek Kieltyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums will be recorded with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who will also handle mixing duties.
DECAPITATED’s as-yet-untitled new effort was named one of "The Top 25 Most Anticipated Albums of 2011" in Decibel magazine’s February 2011 issue, available now at newsstands.
DECAPITATED's current lineup:
* Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka - Guitar

DECAPITATED drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka died on November 2, 2007 in a Russian hospital from injuries sustained in a road collision. DECAPITATED singer Covan (real name: Adrian Kowanek) was also hurt in the accident, which involved the band's tour bus and a truck carrying wood in Gomel, on the Russia/Belarus border.
