"Polish tech death metal masters Decapitated are finally back with a vengeance! After the band had to suffer tragic losses during the past two years, the last remaining founding member Vogg managed to put together a whole new line-up that will represent Decapitated in 2010 as powerful and brutal as they were ever before. To open that new chapter, Decapitated will embark on a co-headlining UK tour with fellow label mates Kataklysm in February 2010!
Commented Vogg: "Hello, what's up UK! As you all know, 2 years after the tragedies we had to suffer, I decided to continue the band. There's no sense in stopping this amazing thing we built up so many years ago together with Witek, Sauron, Martin and Covan. We chose to do our first tour in the UK because we have only good memories from this place and we are sure that you guys will support us... we need you!
