Anthony Morgan of Metal Forces recently conducted an interview with DECAPITATED guitarist Wac?aw “Vogg” Kie?tyka. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
On the style of new DECAPITATED album, “Anticult”:
Vogg: “We thought the album should be a very extreme metal album, but at the same time with lots of melodies — like a crossover album for DECAPITATED. We connected lots of different styles of metal into one piece, and also we thought about making this album not too long. That’s why it’s thirty-eight minutes, which in my opinion is enough time to deliver all of the interesting ideas we had in order to make this album interesting, and not too long. It’s kind of hard to write more than forty minutes of interesting stuff. That was the main goal, trying to make the songs a bit shorter. Yeah, that was the main thing that we thought about.”
On DECAPITATED‘s style changing through the years:
Vogg: “I just feel free to play. I listen to not only death metal. Twenty years ago, I was a death metal kid. I was listening to MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, and CANNIBAL CORPSE all the time, so my music was inspired by those kinds of bands. These days, I listen to all kinds of music. I tried to find my own language in the music, and for me, only playing technical stuff these days isn’t possible.
