Decapitated’s Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka commented:

“I still remember it like it was yesterday… 22 years ago, our first ever UK tour, straight after Winds of Creation was released. We’d been touring with Lock up and Corporation 187. That was the first time we played for fans in England, and they called us the “helicopter band” because we would windmill for the entire set. It was a really great time for us, and we received a warm welcome in every town.

That’s why I am grateful that Decapitated can come back to the UK/IRL, which are almost like our second homes when we talk about the metal scene. We can’t wait to smash some venues we haven’t played for years, like The Underworld in London, which is legendary, plus visiting completely new places like Bridgend, Milton Keynes and Hull, where we have never played before. Prepare for more songs from our old catalogue, Nihility and Winds of Creation. Prepare for death metal madness, and let’s celebrate it all together like we always did. See you soon friends!”

Signs Of The Swarm Premiere “Hymns Ov Invocation” Video

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new video for their song “Hymns Ov Invocation.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Absolvere.” David Simonich commented:

“With ‘Hymns Ov Invocatio‘ we wanted to deliver a strong, high energy video to captivate the intensity of the song. Demonstrating the heavier territories of ‘Absolvere‘, ‘Hymns Ov Invocation‘ brings the heat right out the gate! The track features mind bending riffs, brutal blast beats, and blood curdling vocals packaged together in just 4 minutes of face pummelling deathcore. We wanted to bring some melody to the opening track of ‘Absolvere‘, in the form of ear-catching guitar riffs and head-turning soundscapes. Special thanks to Mortus Viventi & Square Up Studios.”

Signs Of The Swarm Premiere “Death Whistle” Video

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new video for their new song “Death Whistle.” This track is from the band’s new album “Absolvere,” which will be released on September 24.

Vocalist David Simonich commented:

“‘Death Whistle‘ is a conceptual piece inspired by the ancient Aztec relic used in war. Entwining this idea to represent the end of our pain and sorrow that fuels the war within ourselves.

While composing ‘Death Whistle,’ we as a group had our own individual challenges and griefs to overcome. Sharing my experience publicly, I went through the hardship of losing my mother. To this day, I struggle with the constant battle within myself that there was something else I could have done to change what had happened. Full of regret, I dwell on my actions of the past where I believe that if I were around that my influence could have changed the outcome.

This song has a special place in my heart for it was the first time the band fully collaborated on the lyrics of a song. Pouring our souls, ‘Death Whistle‘ was born.”

Guitarist Jeff Russo added:

“I brought the ‘Death Whistle‘ concept to the table after stumbling across videos of them online and feeling inspired by their chilling nature. Coming full circle to tie this together with our personal struggles and the lyrical content of the song, I felt pouring our feelings of being overwhelmed and crushed by life’s obstacles and tragedies was fitting.

The end beckons to us, it instils fear in us, but we answer its call and we are swallowed by it. It’s a dark fantasy entailing the agonies of depression, loss, and letting go, but one I feel many can relate to at times.”
