Michal Lysejko has officially been accepted as the full-time drummer of Decapitated. The Death Metal outfit affirmed this decision after Michal’s successful stint on the band’s tour with Lamb of God. Obviously Decapitated’s original line up is no longer intact (R.I.P. Vitek) but it’s good to see them whole again.

Want some even better news? Decapitated have officially entered the studio (Hertz Studio in Poland) earlier this week to begin recording their sixth studio album! Currently, they’re planning for a Fall release through Nuclear Blast.

Original member and guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka had this to say…

“We would like to share news with you. All you know that we’ve been quite busy lately. We had some personal changes in the band and also we did I guess the best tours we had; with Meshuggah, Lamb Of God and Children Of Bodom. First of all we want to introduce you Decapitated new drummer Michal Lysejko. Some of you had a chance to meet him already during tour with Lamb Of God this January.

Also I want to say THANK YOU to the rest of the people who took a challenge and sent their video for an audition. Also since January this year we signed worldwide management contract with Continental Concerts & Management. That’s for sure big step and opportunity for us and big challenge. But I guess the most important news for most of you is that after almost nine years we back to Hertz Studio (albums: »Nihility«, »The Negation«, »Organic Hallucinosis«) to record new album which will be released autumn this year. We will inform you about details soon. Keep it touch!!”
