Polish technical death metal veterans DECAPITATED have announced a new album! Look for Cancer Culture to be released on May 27th via Nuclear Blast Records. Along with the announcement, the band has dropped the first single for the album’s title track, “Cancer Culture” which you can sample below, along with more details about the band and their new album.
From The Press Release
Upon the release of 2017’s Anticult, Metal Hammer declared DECAPITATED “a serious successor to the likes of Pantera and Lamb Of God – a band who can draw new legions into the metal world as its new champions.”
Today, the band is happy to announce their diverse follow-up, 2022’s Cancer Culture for May 27th – an album that delivers on that promise.
Instantly recognizable devastation and deceptively sinister hooks abound. Freshly minted DECAPITATED anthems, like the title track Cancer Culture, shimmer with sonically sharp production and unrelenting bombast.
Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kieltyka on the first single:
“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. “

Mastermind Vogg continues:
“Finally, after so many months of waiting, we got it. The announcement of our brand new album Cancer Culture and a new single is on!
The expectations were high, and we also gave ourselves a massive challenge with this album. But I think hard work pays off.
We had an opportunity to gather amazing people who took care of the production and helped us deliver the best we could with this album.
Again, Jarek Szubrycht (Carnival is Forever) has written amazing lyrics for us about the disproportion between the dreams, ambitions, and aspirations of humanity. The leading engineer of the album was Tomasz Zed Zalewski (Anticult), David Castillo, responsible for mixing the album, and Ted Jensen for the final touch for mastering. For the cover, for the first time, we have worked with Fabio Timpanaro, an Italian artist whose art perfectly describes what we wanted to tell through visual art.
Don’t misinterpret the title meaning of the album. It has a much broader context. You will be surprised at what we have delivered this time.”
Cancer Culture comes in many beautiful formats that make every fan’s heart beat faster!
