Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka our brother and dearest friend succumbed to head injuries sustained after a bad van accident while on tour in Russia. He was 23.
One of the youngest and most promising drummers in the genre, together with Decapitated he has consistently released albums both crushing and invigorating in their musicianship.
Extremely talented he has been involved in other side projects: Dies Irae, Panzer X.
He will be missed and can not be replaced.
The metal scene will be much sorrier with his passing
Listen to these young Canadian bands
As any fan of the genre will tell you, there's Death Metal and then there's Real Death Metal. Plain ol' Death Metal is a scene populated by those content to follow established patterns, basing their sound on the blueprint of years gone by and expecting little more than the acknowledgement and respect of their peers.
Real Death Metal however is a more sparsely filled enviroment, inhabitated by those who have desire to take the sound and attitude that little bit further. Bands residing here use imagination, ability and undiluted belief to get where they are going. It is such a world that Polish four piece Decapitated choose to call home, and it is a world they are seeking to dominate with their distinctive brand of technically flawless Death Metal.
Decapitated are not what you might call your average band - formed in 1996 when the average age of the band was just 14 years old, based in Krosno, Southern Poland, all attending music school yet facing ridicule with the release of their 'Cemeteral Gardens' demo in June '97 due to their young age, they succeeded in wiping the smiles from the doubters faces with a sound that, whilst showing a debt to Death Metal heroes of the past, convinced many that the band were out of the ordinary.
