Don't know about you, but to me, everything (including the cover and the album title) help form an intial impression of an album. Of course, the music's always top priority, but a great cover/album title puts you in the right mood to appreciate it more, in my opinion.


I guess I may be a little too much into digital. I couldn't care less about the cover and especially the album title if the music on the album is good. Sure, a good cover and a nice album title is always appreciated but it is just a plus, something that can be overlooked for me. I can understand that someone might have a first bad impression if the title and/or the cover is ugly as shit but I just don't understand how it changes anything about the music itself. I am not necessarily talking about you but I have seen people overlook an album simply because the cover and/or title weren't to their liking and I find that particularly ludicrous. You listened to the album so you do not fall into this category .

Rating: 7 Interesting how Vitek gets writing credits for most of the songs

Not Decapitated's best, but at least The Knife is a top 10 Decapitated song, for me

Oh dude, you've been missing out on one of the best death metal bands EVAARRR!! D:
Check out all of their stuff asap, starting from the latest two albums. They're the most accessible of the lot.
YEAH!!! >:[

  Mech lies, start with Winds of Creation. One of the best death metal albums ever, although Organic is high up there.

Winds of Creation = THE death album. Having said that, I recommended the latest two only because those are much easier to get into. >:[

I only listened 2 songs, and I closed my Itunes.


Different tastes, but for me this album sucks!!!

Rating: 9 Long, long-time metal fan and had never knowingly listened to Decapitated. I saw it on top of the chart and decided to check it out. Blew my fucking head off! I'm IN. Fantastic guitar work, especially. I'm now a HUGE Decapitated fan. They make Vader sound like Motley Crue.

Decapitated and Hail of Bullets are my two new most-listened bands, along with the new Sepultura album.

Rating: 9 Pure brutally, loved it through the high, the low, the fast and the slow.

Haven't heard anything since The Negation that really caught my interest, I guess I enjoy their new vocalist and find Victor as fresh as ever on the guitar. Feel similarly about Dissection's 'Reinkaos' & this album but feel I must also trek lightly.
Stabby - 05.08.2011 at 23:18  
Rating: 8 Love it. This is the first album I have heard from them and it is great. So crunchy and brutal with great flow, now I know why they're popular.
buyrecords - 09.08.2011 at 11:44  
  This album totally slays. In the initial listens i felt that the track "Silence" was of no use, but after multiple listens i understood the need for that track. After the complete aural assault, silence is what is required, to get back to your senses.
Troy Killjoy - 12.08.2011 at 23:53  
  Huh. Not the worst thing I've ever heard, but it's definitely the worst they've done. Some good songs here and there with a lot of filler tracks and filler moments in the good songs...I mean it's still a pretty decent tech-death album and once you come to terms with the vocalist it gets easier to listen to, but I really wanted this album to do more damage than it did.
Misfit74 - 14.08.2011 at 07:48  
Rating: 9 Upon further review: fantastic. Can't wait to see them in Portland this fall. I love the unpredictability and complexity of the riffs and arrangements. Brilliant guitar work for what they do. Certainly, Decapitated is now one of my new favorites.

Rating: 9 Killer album!!!
AtrumHiberna - 22.09.2011 at 02:06  
  It needs a few listens to dig it. I didn't like it at first, but I gave it a chance.
I find it very normal and logic that this album sounds a little different than their other ones. A band MUST progress, otherwise it will end up boring and repetitive. Some must learn to understand and accept this.

you only listened to 2 songs and felt justified in rating the entire album?

  Listened to this one a few times and it's pretty good. Especially The Knife and Homo Sum, those two tracks are killer. Good stuff.

That is fine? 2 songs is all you need to justify an album. Bands don't just change style after the first 2 songs. Clearly the music style doesn't work for him. The vocals for example, they sure don't work for me. After i heard the first song i knew i was going to not really get into this album. This album is barely death metal lol.

I can usually tell what I'm going to think after listening to one or two songs from an album, but for the most part I listen to it in full at least once before passing any kind of official judgment.

The exception here would be Lulu. I listened to... in total, probably about 6 minutes. And even that was enough to scar me for life.

Hahaha Lulu scarred me for life too. The lyrics are so weird.
This youtube video sums Lulu up for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRP_dwEUQwI

In my point above i still listen to the album usually as a whole. My point was that i can draw conclusions after 2 songs about key aspects of the band (whether or not i like the vocals, production, direction, etc). Listening to the album through means you can try to develop a liking for it.

As in the case with this album. I have given it two complete listens, and i find it to be mediocre. Decapitated has never had strong vocals, and they have declined in quality over time to the point now where it affects the overall music for me. Not to mention this album is not heavy enough either.

Because the album was probably half written already before the accident?
musicalkaratekid - 11.07.2012 at 15:40  
Rating: 7 The album that introduced me to the band. The fact that it seems to be the band's weakest record makes me think it wasn't a very good place to start, but I was curious. This is really good technical death metal, but you can't help but feel if one song really does sound different from any other or not. That said, the title track is absolutely stellar.
Góral - 04.02.2013 at 01:32  
  A few days ago I saw them live. This is a must see, they are really fuckin great. "Homo Sum" live kills.
szakiel - 15.02.2013 at 11:03  
Rating: 10 Very fresh album, I love that new style!
Pazdzioch - 15.02.2013 at 15:21  
  This album has grown on me with time. If anyone complains about vocals, this is further proof that not every polish dm should sound like Behemłoth and Vader.
