Dieth (Ex-Megadeth, Ex-Decapitated, Etc.) Sign With Napalm Records

Dieth, the project featuring David Ellefson (ex-Megadeth), Guilherme Miranda (ex-Entombed A.D.), and Michał Łysejko (ex-Decapitated), have signed a new deal with Napalm Records. The band’s debut album will be released through the label on 2023.

Dieth commented:

“We are stoked to announce that we’ve signed a multi-album international record deal with Napalm Records, who will release our debut album in 2023. Their approach to music and devotion to metal made Napalm the perfect, most suitable place for us and our music. Last but not least, we would like to thank each one of you that are giving us this massive support. More info and details about the album will follow soon. Stay tuned!”

Sebastian Münch, A&R at Napalm, added:

“The term ‘supergroup’ feels overused nowadays, but with the formation of Dieth, it correctly and justifiably describes the coming together of these three extremely talented musicians. The first single, ‘In The Hall Of The Hanging Serpents’, underlines that the debut album could become a death-thrash metal masterpiece. Napalm Records is pleased and proud to partner with Dieth, to establish the band and make the new album a success. Personally, as a lifelong Megadeth fan, this signing is a dream come true.”

Former Members Of Megadeth, Decapitated, & Entombed A.D. Launch New Death Metal Band Dieth

David Ellefson (ex-Megadeth), Guilherme Miranda (ex-Entombed A.D.), and Michal Lysejko (ex-Decapitated) have joined forces for a new death metal project called Dieth. A music video for the band’s first single, “In The Hall Of The Hanging Serpents,” can be found below:

Miranda commented:

“It has been so much happening lately (in life), feeling the need to express ourselves accordingly. Create something new, have a fresh start. Personally, it was a matter of life or death to come back playing music. To do something truly meaningful and finally cope with the anger and grief. Sometimes you have to die inside to be reborn. This is what Dieth represents, a new sonic driving force that leave the past behind.”

Ellefson continued:

“The three of us have all been recognized in our respective bands and careers but at some point, we had to close the door on those exploits to let something new begin and now we have found it in Dieth. In fact, the name itself is about dying to one’s past so that something new can spring forth to create the next chapter of life. And, that is a connection the three of us hold in common.”

Lysejko added:

“For me, Dieth is awakening from a creative lethargy, with the full feeling that the time has come. The lightness with which Dieth‘s music flows from us, combining our inspirations and experiences into a whole, is proof of this. The fact that the band was formed in the Tri-City I come from has a symbolic meaning for me.”

Decapitated Share Music Video For “Iconoclast” Featuring Machine Head’s Robb Flynn

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!”

Flynn added:

“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.”

Decapitated Premiere “Just A Cigarette” Music Video

Decapitated have premiered a new video for their new song “Just A Cigarette.” This track is from the band’s new album “Cancer Culture,“ which will be released on May 27. Guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka commented:

“‘Just A Cigarette’ is a powerful, epic, melodic death metal song about human life expectations and death. It was the first song I wrote for the ‘Cancer Culture,’ which shaped the whole album. To present the track even more and affect the listeners’ senses, we wanted to deliver it with a great piece of art. For this occasion, we teamed up with the Polish artist Marcin Białas, who let us use his fantastic gravure prints, which we used in our video as well.”

Decapitated Share Music Video For New Song “Hello Death” Featuring Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmayluk

Decapitated have premiered a new video for their new song “Hello Death.” This track features Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmayluk and it will appear on the band’s new album “Cancer Culture,” which will be released on May 27.

Decapitated’s Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka commented:

“Jinjer is one of the most interesting metal acts of the last few years. And Tatiana’s vocals in the song will surprise some people. It’s really unique and amazing.

With this song, we have achieved something remarkable. We have combined two different musical styles in ‘Hello Death’.

As you all know, we love to add something interesting to our music. With ‘Hello Death’ we managed to unite our style of technical death metal with Tatiana’s vocals, which adds an absolutely different epic dimension.

Tatiana has one of the most incredible voices in the metal scene, and it was a wholly different and exciting experience to work with her on this track. Her voice filled the song with other emotions, which completed the meaning behind the lyrics.

The song is about the fight between life and death, where we connected brutal, heavy riffs with feminine, lyrical vocals, which are powerful, influential, and straight to the point. This combination is a new thing in Decapitated’s music, and it shows that sometimes you need to leave your comfort zone and take a risk to achieve something totally epic.”

Decapitated Premiere “Cancer Culture” Music Video

Decapitated have premiered a new video for their latest single “Cancer Culture.“ This song is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on May 27.

Guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka commented:

“The video was filmed last December in Plock, Poland. This time we have teamed up with Mateusz Winkiel, the Director of Mania Studio, with who we have worked closely on the complete scenario. It was a good experience, and I hope our fans will appreciate the final effect of the work and an important message we tried to conclude in this picture.

It wasn’t easy to pick the first single from ‘Cancer Culture‘. Each song has this different vibe that we would like to show as soon as possible and be proud of. Since ‘Cancer Culture‘ is the first song from the album, we decided that this would be the perfect way to introduce you to new music. It is the album’s opening chapter, and you know, what you can expect.”
