Live photos of Poland's newly resurrected modern technical death metallers DECAPITATED opening for HYPOCRISY in Poland at the Mega Club on January 26, 2010 have been posted on the band's MySpace page.
DECAPITATED's new lineup:
* Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka - Guitar
* Kerim "Krimh" Lechner (THORNS OF IVY, TONE INTIMACY) - Drums
* Rafal Piotrowski (KETHA, FORGOTTEN SOULS) - Vocals
* Filip "Heinrich" Halucha (VESENIA, ROOTWATER, UNSUN, MASACHIST) - Bass
DECAPITATED was invited by the local promoter in Katowice, Poland to play this one-off show after HATESPHERE were forced to cancel their participation on the HYPOCRISY tour.

Founding member Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka commented: "We were pleased to play once again with HYPOCRISY. We toured two times together in U.S. and there couldn't have been a better opportunity to play for the people with the new lineup. The fans welcomed us which was most important. That was a fucking amazing night for us and we are so happy about that."
DECAPITATED is currently on the road with Nuclear Blast labelmates KATAKLYSM in the U.K. and will tour Australia in early April. A North American tour is on the horizon for the summer of 2010.
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.
Metal Mind Productions released the first-ever DVD from DECAPITATED, entitled "Human's Dust", in June 2008.
