DECAPITATED Drummer Dead At 23

Source: Blabbermouth

Not so long ago, the band was in a tour bus accident. Their vocalist is said to be improving but their drummer has passed away yesterday. The drummer's name is Witold Kieltyka. He was only 23 years old, barely older than many members on METALSETLISTS. That's just too damn young.

Decapitated hails from Poland and has been together for about ten years, pretty amazing considering their age. I saw them perform once or twice at the Pound. They were one of those that impressed me enough to buy their Negation album.

Personally, I didn't know Witold, although I'm sure someone here probably did. It's just when I hear news like this, I think about the lot of you. Life is just too short sometimes.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.

I'm so glad I got to see them live before this tragic accident. Vitek was a great drummer, and really was special with the band. He'll be missed greatly.

I just wrote an article for the school paper about this. It sad not only because he was such a good drummer, but because he was so goddamn young. Truly depressing.

Damn. Was looking forward to catching them on tour with Amon Amarth. This is shitty news Rest in peace.

Second Polish death metal drummer to die recently, didn't the drummer from Vader die last year too or something?
