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.

Bio: MODERN BLASTING US DEATH METAL!!!
The utter brutality of UNMERCIFUL was founded in 2001 in a cramped, 8 foot by 8 foot room of a shoe box house in the boonies of Topeka, KS. James King (frustrated guitarist) and Clint Appelhanz (fresh out of recording engineering school) took a journey to a music store to invest in some gear for recording. The gruesome twosome anointed themselves with the name "Anal Maggot". With indispensable recording access and relentless determination, the two began to evolve into an inexorable force. Recognizing the need for a full band (and a name change), Clint and James began auditioning various musicians and changed the name to UNMERCIFUL, but could not find a stable lineup. Thus, the band temporarily disbanded in 2002 when Clint re-joined ORIGIN (after the departure of Jeremy Turner). Meanwhile, James had found a lineup with Jamie and Nate Serrano and Brian "Big B" Owensby. After Origin was finished touring, Clint re-joined the "new" UNMERCIFUL and recorded the demo "Weed Out the Weak". Yet again, the lineup disbanded and were replaced by Jeremy Turner (who, since the departure with Origin, had been with CANNIBAL CORPSE as a touring guitarist), and SICK up-and-comer Tony Reust on vocals. UNMERCIFUL is in the midst of recording a full length album of inevitable destruction, set out to lay waste to all. UNMERCIFUL is also looking for a permanent bassist with inexplicable skill and professional manner. Serious inquiries only. Look for a special appearance by at least one person on this recording, tentatively titled "Unspeakable Acts"!
