Polish technical death metal band DECAPITATED have announced the following as the track listing to their sixth studio album Blood Mantra, due out in North America this fall, via Nuclear Blast:
01. Exiled In Flesh
02. The Blasphemous Psalm To The Dummy God Creation
04. Blood Mantra
08. Red Sun
“Extreme and groove – I think that’s the best way to describe our new album,” guitarist / songwriter / founding member Wacek “Vogg” Kiełtyka has stated. “Blood Mantra is the most heavy and mature album we’ve ever made in our career . . . [T]he riffs are sooo deep and powerful.”
Once again featuring artwork by Lukasz Jaszak, Blood Mantra was recorded under the direction of Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland Studio, where DECAPITATED recorded 2002’s Nihility, 2004’s The Negation, and 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis. This new studio album also features the debut of new drummer Michal Lysejko.
DECAPITATED has toured throughout North America with MESHUGGAH, LAMB OF GOD, and DECREPIT BIRTH & FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE in support of 2011’s Billboard-charting release Carnival Is Forever. The band will play the festival circuit throughout Europe this summer.
