SOME BITTERSWEET NEWS FOR DECAPITATED FANS
So apparently Decapitated have signed with Nuclear Blast Records. Since Nuclear Blast is one of the foremost metal labels in the world, this is technically good news; of course, as the press release that announced the signing notes, “The joy over these awesome news are of course overshadowed by the tragic death of Decapitated drummer Witold ‘Vitek’ Kieltyka.”
Still, the fact that everyone decided to move forward with this announcement presumably means that the band intends to soldier on without Vitek, and, more importantly, that lead singer Covan is expected to make a full recovery from his own injuries.
So the next logicial step, once Covan is one hundred percent, is to find a new drummer. To whomever that man or woman turns out to be, I’d just like to say: be careful, friend. You’ve got some mighty huge shoes to fill.
