On March 10, Polish tech death masters DECAPITATED entered Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland to begin recording their sixth album. The as-yet-untitled CD is set for a release in September via Nuclear Blast.

DECAPITATED‘s forthcoming effort will mark the recording debut of the band’s new drummer, Michal Lysejko, who joined the group in time for their tour with LAMB OF GOD in January.

Commented DECAPITATED guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka: “We would like to share few news with you.

“All you know that we’ve been quite busy lately. We had some personal changes in the band and also we did I guess the best tours we had; with MESHUGGAH, LAMB OF GOD and CHILDREN OF BODOM.

“First of all, we want to introduce you DECAPITATED new drummer Michal Lysejko. Some of you had a chance to meet him already during tour with LAMB OF GOD this January.

“Also I want to say THANK YOU to the rest of the people who took a challenge and sent their video for an audition.

“Also, since January this year, we signed worldwide management contract with Continental Concerts & Management. That’s for sure big step and opportunity for us and big challenge.

“But I guess the most important news for most of you is that after almost nine years we back to Hertz Studio (albums: ‘Nihility’, ‘The Negation’, ‘Organic Hallucinosis’) to record new album which will be released autumn this year. We will inform you about details soon.”

DECAPITATED‘s last album, “Carnival Is Forever”, sold around 2,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 11 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

“Carnival Is Forever” was released in North America on July 12, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD’s cover art was created by Lukasz Jaszak. The follow-up to 2006’s “Organic Hallucinosis” was recorded at Radio Gdansk Studio in Poland with producer Wacek Kieltyka and engineer Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski. Drums were tracked with Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED), who also handled mixing duties.

The official lyric video for “Haunter Of The Dark,” a new song from Belgian melodic black metallers Saille, can now be seen below. The track comes from the band’s second album “Ritu,” which will be released on January 18th, 2013 via Code666 Records.

The follow-up to 2011′s “Irreversible Decay” was produced and mixed by Reinier Schenk (Gorath, Fleshmould) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, Dimmu Borgir, Keep Of Kalessin). Cover art comes courtesy of Polish digital landscape artist Michal Karcz. Our recent interview with the band about the upcoming album can also be read here.

Commented Saille frontman Dennie Grondelaers: “Haunter of the Dark is based on two Lovecraft-stories. The first one, ‘The Haunter of the Dark’, covers the larger part of the lyrics. The second, ‘The Case of Charles Dexter Ward’, is the story from which the unpronounceable intro and intermezzo originate. It’s about a man who, while exploring a long abandoned church, unknowingly summons an avatar of a malign god named Nyarlathotep. The following days describe his futile attempts to escape the horrible faith he called upon himself.”
