Album Review

With the departure of their founding vocalist — the heartwarmingly named Sauron — the remaining members of Polish death metal veterans Decapitated have apparently decided to mark the installment of his successor, Covan, with a wholesale change of direction for their fourth studio album, Organic Hallucinosis. Launching off of their new frontman's more versatile skills in delivering various stages of deathly grunting, the band has stepped up the complexity of their songwriting to match, while establishing a non-traditional death metal aesthetic somewhere between the lopsided time signatures of Meshuggah and down-tuned power grooves of Pantera. And even though the exceedingly challenging results don't usually make for ideal moshpit conditions, intellectual onslaughts like "A Poem About an Old Prison Man," "Day 69" and "Flash-B(l)ack," do promise hours of gradual interpretation for those inclined towards thinking man's extreme metal. They also lack nothing in terms of intensity or brutality, only rarely exposing even the remotest traces of melody (see "Invisible Control") or turning down the volume for haunting, quieter passages ("Visual Delusion"). All of these new developments undoubtedly constrict the potential audience for a sound that's already likely to polarize longtime Decapitated fans, never mind try to seduce new ones; but one can't fault the band for trying, since it's not like they've managed to break out of the death metal underground with their previous works, anyway. And by limiting this album's running time to less than half an hour, it's almost as if Decapitated are intentionally giving their fans with a quick and relatively painless introduction to both their new membership and ambitions. Seems like a good strategy, if it works out in the long run.

Beat Death Metal Album

I will keep this short. I like a lot of different types of music from pop, jazz, Drum and bass and all the way up to Metal so this is not some narrow minded fanboy review. This is by far the best metal album you can own... Normally you will buy an album and there is at least one song that doesn't quite hit the spot... Not here, every track is pure metal bliss. The Guitar... The only words i can use to describe it is... Rich... Like really really brown chocolate! Just listen to the 1st and 2nd tracks and you will hear a sound that you can really sink your teeth into! I think some people might find this hard to appreciate but if you are any self respecting metal fan or just a musical enthusiast. You must own this album. The Drums are impossible poly rhythms, the vocals JUST right... Not 'cookiemonster' yet not a shrill scream. Everything fits and gels together to create one of the finest metal albums ever... It was sad to read the album text and see the talk about the future. As im sure you know. I wish everyone involved and affected all the best.

Underrated!

Decapitated are THE BEST death metal band out there. There may only be 7 tracks, but they are all gems, and for a fiver, you can't go wrong. If you're curious about this sort of music, then i beg of you, let Organic Hallucinosis be your gateway to the terrifying world of death metal!

A top Death Metal album (RIP Vitek)

It's a shame the Drummer has died recently (RIP Vitek), clearly you can hear his talent through his ultra fast arm and foot work. This is one of the top Death Metal albums of the 00's. Every song (even though there's only 7) you get a blast of ultra brutal beats and insane guitaring. If you are new to Death Metal, this is a place to start.

Formed in 1996, when the average age of members Sauron (vocals), Vogg (guitar), Martin (bass), and Vitek (drums) was just 14, Decapitated have quickly gained recognition as one of Poland's, and even Europe's, finest exponents of ultra-technical death metal. These talents they perfected over the course of demos Cemeterial Gardens (1997) and The Eye of Horus (1998) before signing with Earache's Wicked World imprint for the release of their 2000 debut, Winds of Creation, which in turn led to a successful...
