DECAPITATED Part Ways With Singer, Announce Replacement

Polish death metallers DECAPITATED have parted ways with vocalist Sauron. "His position in the band is going to be taken over by Covan, a previous member of ATROPHIA RED SUN," DECAPITATED write on their web site. "He is going to take part in the recording of the new album and the forthcoming gigs of the band."

Here's Sauron's statement regarding his decision to leave the group:

"After long consideration, I have decided to leave DECAPITATED. It was not an easy decision. However, I could reconcile the welfare of the band with my personal plans, and hence quitting appeared to be the best solution not hampering the evolution of DECAPITATED. In the face of the wide-scaled plans of the band I had to decide between being a member of DECAPITATED and my personal objectives. Moreover, another reason that contributed to my decision have been some health complications.

"In the first place I would like to thank my friends from the band for those nine years. I would also like to salute all the fans and people who supported us throughout all those years. I'm turning the mic over to an appropriate person, and what is more, I'm sure that this change will do good to the band.

"Respect and good luck, Covan! For my part, I'm going to keep track of DECAPITATED and support them in every possible way."
