Decapitated Get Political

Polish metal extremists Decapitated released their seventh album, Anticult, last Friday via Nuclear Blast.

The 8 track slasher opens with the trail-blazing masterpiece ‘Impulse’ and doesn’t let up until the closing track, ‘Amen’. Thematically and lyrically, Anticult deals with the abstract idea of who and what we, as humans, are. Conceived and written by vocalist Rasta, it’s existentialism at its finest. The lyrics discuss, as Rasta says, “the hourglass of life”. As for the title, ‘Anticult’, it posits a world where everything has input in our lives. The forces of modern society have an impact on everything we perceive and do. The idea behind it is to rage against the so-called machine. To be an individual. And to stand up for yourself and define your own code. With this in mind,Vogg and Rasta discuss the political influences on the album in a new trailer, which can be viewed here

“You can find ‘cults’ everywhere and in everything we do”, explains Vogg“‘Anticult’, from one point of view, is a rage against all of these values. An impulse. It makes you think: ‘What kind of world do we live in? Who or what pulls the strings? And what is our role here?’ So think of the title as finding your own ‘cult’. In that regard, ‘Anticult’ is, from another point of view, about illumination. Or Noesis.”
