New song "Homo Sum," good song, namely the bridge.

Album preview: pretty technical and brutal. Not all that different, but still worth holding optimism about.

Polish technical death metal band DECAPITATED have selected Carnival Is Forever as a title of their fifth studio album and Nuclear Blast debut.

A few words from the guitarist & founding member Vogg on the album title:

"Carnival: war, rape, lies, pathology, evil displayed through certain events and situations of the latest years in the world. Is Forever - I guess it doesn't need explaining. Both the text and the title are bitterly ironic. The author of the title and all lyrics is Jarek Szubrycht (Lux Occulta, author of world’s first biography of thrash metal legends Slayer (“No mercy”)).

Carnival Is Forever is the follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis and was produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums & mixing duties were handled by Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED). The band will be self-releasing the new album in their native Poland.

DECAPITATED's line-up includes: Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka on guitar, Kerim "Krimh" Lechner (Thorns Of Ivy, Tone Intimacy) on drums, Rafał Piotrowski (Ketha, Forgotten Souls) on lead vocals, and Filip "Heinrich" Hałucha (Vesania, Rootwater, Unsun, Masachist) on bass.

At 1 time, not long after I discovered liking this band, I assumed their would be no more, when learning of the death of their drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka in a car crash.
