Polish technical death metal outfit Decapitated have named their forthcoming LP. What, you ask? Carnival Is Forever will be the title of their fifth studio album, due later in the year via Nuclear Blast Records.
“Carnival — war, rape, lies, pathology, evil displayed through certain events and situations of the latest years in the world,” starts guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka. “Is Forever — I guess it doesn’t need explaining. Both in the text and the title, there is bitter irony. The author of the title and all lyrics is Jarek Szubrycht (Lex Occulta, author of ‘No Mercy,’ the world’s first biography of thrash metal legends Slayer).”
Huh? This dude Jarek wrote the lyrics to the new album? That’s kind of weird, no? What’s up with that?
The follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis, Carnival Is Forever was recorded at Radio Gdansk Studio in Poland with producer Wacek Kieltyka and engineer Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski.
