Decapitated - Carnival is Forever

Information about the new Decapitated album has been posted.

Quote:
DECAPITATED have released the album artwork to their fifth studio album and Nuclear Blast debut, Carnival Is Forever. The album will be released in Poland and North America on July 12th and rest of the Europe 15.07.2011.

Guitarist & founding member Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka shares a few words about the cover art’s intent and photography by Lukasz Jaszak:

"Very intriguing and quite strange for a metal album but surely staying in memory. A vital thing is that it's a photo. We did not want any computer graphics this time or anything artificial or plastic. The same regards the production of the album. We had actually been thinking about getting a painting for the cover but unfortunately we couldn't do it. Maybe next time.”

About the album title, Vogg has previously stated:

"Carnival: war, rape, lies, pathology, evil displayed through certain events and situations of the latest years in the world. Is Forever - I guess it doesn't need explaining. Both the text and the title are bitterly ironic."

Carnival Is Forever is the follow-up to 2006’s Organic Hallucinosis and was produced by Wacek Kiełtyka and sound engineered by Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski. Drums & mixing duties were handled by Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN, DEFLESHED). The author of the album’s lyrics is Jarek Szubrycht, music journalist, author of No Mercy, the world’s first biography of thrash metal legends SLAYER.

The band will be self-releasing the new album in their native Poland.

I'm a little confused, not because the art is necessarily bad, but that it doesnt fit Decapitated's style. That should be a goth or doom album cover, or even something Opeth would do. There's not enough... blood on it for Decapitated.

This. Although I don't know whether to be worried or not.

Who will disappoint more? Morbid Angel or Decapitated? That's the main question of 2011.

This argument is irrelevant. Hate Eternal will have the best death metal record of 2011.

After my first listen, agreed. Although we do have quite a bit left of 2011 so we'll see.

Decapitated. Apparently their live shows w/ the new lineup aren;t that good. Probably wont equate to a good studio album either.

I have faith that Decapitated can churn out a killer album. But if they don't, I'll be pretty disappointed.

We can only hope. They really need to make a strong release or what's left of their fan base will dissipate.
