Decapitated The Negation

Decapitated The Negation
Barely a year after the band’s sophomore release Nihility and at the ripe age of 22, Poland’s Decapitated have returned with another groundbreaking and ingenious album. All ten songs are delivered with debilitating momentum and quirky time changes, humiliating most contemporary metal outfits. Slower grooves paired with bludgeoning drumming create a crisp but exceptionally intense sound that has developed into their own. Like most metal bands, they do dip into reverb overload but do so tactfully. Their songs have matured in terms of writing, integrating technicalities to accent a song, not to generate a procession of inadequate verses. As with their previous albums, nothing can stop them from blazing through the fret board and showing no remorse for the deceased melodies left lying in their dust. The curious riffs aren’t exhausted or subject to the frequency principal that applies to most records; it can survive focus for extended periods of time. Considering this band’s extraordinarily young age and accomplishments you can be sure that Decapitated will earn their place alongside metal’s legends, including fellow pioneering Poles, Vader.
