Album Review

In the mid-'90s, bands like Nile, Cryptopsy, and Krisiun were stepping up to resuscitate the slumping death metal genre. Decapitated are part of the next generation of bands — they were born around the time Morbid Angel and Death were recording their first demo tapes and in their early teens by the mid-'90s. For them, death metal has always been around, and they seem to live and breathe it.

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...
