DECAPITATED – Drummer Quits Band

Polish extreme metal band DECAPITATED has announced the departure of drummer Michal Lysejko, who originally joined the group in 2014. Vader drummer James Stewart will fill in until a permanent replacement can be found.

Decapitated had this to say:

“We would like to thank him for his friendship, his huge support, and his hard work as the drummer for Decapitated. We wish him well on his new path. All the best, brother! We will take some time before we find and announce our new drummer. Until then, our friend James Stewart (Vader) will join us as a session drummer. Luckily, he found some free time between Vader shows and is able to play some selected live shows. You will all experience his talents soon.”

DECAPITATED as a teenage Death Metal act averaged an age of just 17 by the time of their debut album but incredibly drummer Vitek was a mere twelve years old upon their formation in 1996. Both guitarist Vogg and bassist Martin also held down membership of Black Metal act LUX OCCULTA . In 1997 the trio of vocalist Sauron, guitarist Vogg and Vitek added the 13 year old bassist Martin. DECAPITATED, hailing from Krosno, debuted with the demos Cemeteral Gardens in 1997 and 1998 “The Eye Of Horus”. Further exposure was garnered by the inclusion of tracks on the 2000 Relapse Records ‘Polish Assault’ compilation alongside YATTERING , LOST SOUL and DAMNABLE .
