DECAPITATED ”Carnival Is Forever”
Nuclear Blast Records – 2011 – Poland
Polish technical death metalers are back with a new line-up and an excellent release. Decapitated has had unfortunate events occur, Vogg did deicde to continue the band-and I for one am glad he did-“Carnival is Forever” is has many depths to it. Giving the metal masses eight superb tunez, really terrific drumming by Krimh on “Carnival is Forever”. I really like the title track, “Carnival is Forever” 8.49 mins., it is an intense track, looming and eerie, “The Knife” kicks off the release and it killz, “Homo Sum” very powerful & “404”. The crunch style of guitars is excellent almost thrashy-nice riffing throughout-mixed with that devilish bass and kick ass drums nothing, but great death metal here. The vox by Rafal Piotrowski to me sound like they are better suited for hard-core-though his vox do mix well into the New Decapitated -chek it out don’t dismiss it- the musical arrangements are by themselves a great talent.
