Decapitated is a technical death metal band from Poland. They formed in 1996 in Krosno in southern Poland, when all the members were still attending music school.
They released their first demo Cemeterial Gardens in 1997 and their second demo, The Eye of Horus in 1998. After these releases, the band was considered as genuine contenders of the underground metal community, and eventually signed with Wicked World/Earache Records for the release of the debut album, Winds of Creation.
With Vitek (1984-2007) and Vogg (being aged 23) they are one of the youngest bands in the genre to have had success. Martin and Vogg conjointly hold gigs with the Polish experimental symphonic/technical black metal band Lux Occulta.
Decapitated released their first demo entitled Cemeterial Gardens in 1997 and released their debut album, called Winds of Creation, three years later. Nihility was the follow-up of Winds of Creation.
Their 2004 album, The Negation, along with their latest effort Organic Hallucinosis both have a fuller, more classical death metal tone. In summer 2005, the band's vocalist Sauron quit the band. According to Sauron, the reason was due to "health complications". Sauron's replacement was Covan, a previous member of Atrophia Red Sun. The group is currently signed to Earache Records.
Organic Hallucinosis was released on the 13th of February 2006. Martin rejoined Decapitated after the army wanted him for conscription in Poland and nearly faced going to court despite the rumours of problems concerning the label, which were proven to be untrue.

Technical death metal, progressive metal, deathcore (early).
5-piece Black metal band from Minot, North Dakota - initially gaining notoriety for claiming to be from Chongqing, China and marketing themselves that way. Ghost Bath writes and creates under the assumption that music is an extension of one's own soul, to the extend that the band members have opted to not reveal any details about themselves and remain both anonymous (routinely using the Chinese adjective 无名 to define themselves as one blurred entity, which translates into "nameless" or "obscure") and faceless; even scratching off their faces from their promotional pictures for good measure. The press somewhat dampened the desired effect by eventually revealing that the band's frontman was actually named Dennis Mikula.
