Decapitated have premiered a new video for their new song “Iconoclast.” The track, which features Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn, appears on the band’s newly released album “Cancer Culture.“
Guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka commented:
“‘Cancer Culture‘ is out today!!! We’ve been waiting for this special moment for a very long time. It seems like ages – its been five years since our latest release ‘Anticult‘, with sixteen months of working on the ‘Cancer Culture‘ album, plus waiting almost a year to be able to share it with you finally. You can expect to hear varied tracks, outstanding production values, fantastic artwork, and of course, as always, something you won’t have heard before on a Decapitated album.
To celebrate this day, we decided to release a video for ‘Iconoclast‘. To mark this occasion, we returned to the studio where it all started, where we recorded drums for the album, to once again feel an incredible energy and cool vibes, while making the video.
As you probably know, we have an exceptional guest on the track, the metal legend and friend of ours, the one and only Robb Flynn. His contribution became one of my favorite parts of this album. It’s a huge honor to have Robb in this project, and I hope you will dig the song. It’s a different song – not blasting madness as most of the songs on this record, but still powerful, fast, and crushing.
Decapitated are back, strong and alive! From pain to strength! Enjoy!”
“When Vogg asked me to sing on this Decapitated track, I was honored to jam with pioneers and such insane musicians. When he sent the track I was blown away at this incredible melodic section in the middle. When he told me the song was called ‘Iconoclast‘, I knew exactly what needed to be said. An Iconoclast is “a destroyer of images used in religious worship”. This song had to address the hateful, growing fascist Evangelical movement growing around the world. The cruel men who wish to hide their cruelty under a cloak of faith and zealotry.”
