May 2022 Album of the Month: Decapitated – Cancer CultureMonday, 30th May 2022
Polish death-mongers Decapitated made some less-than-brutal choices on their previous two outings, 2014’s Blood Ritual and 2017’s Anticult. However, on their latest opus, Cancer Culture, Vogg and crew have reverted back to the stifling, unrelenting form that made them underground favorites. It’s also why it’s our May 2022 Album of the Month. Here’s a snipped of Matt Coe’s review:
…which brings us to Cancer Culture, their eighth studio album featuring the return of bassist Pawel Pasek after leaving in 2016, plus powerhouse drummer James Stewart (ex-Vader). Venomous attitude plus relentless musical angst fuels these ten tracks, explosive as a cosmic force while injecting proper restraint in small spaces to ignite the next firestorm of riffs, blast beats, and caustic paint-peeling roars. Those who have loved this band for a while and appreciate releases like Organic Hallucinosis and Anticult will revel in Cancer Culture – channeling a level of brutality and intensity rarely captured in the studio quite like this.
