Decapitated celebrate the release of ‘Cancer Culture’ with searing single featuring Robb Flynn of Machine Head

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in Uncategorized on May 27, 2022

The instrumental intensity combined with Flynn’s scathing social commentary make “Iconoclast” an absolute ripper.

Marking the release of their eagerly-awaited eight full length studio album, Poland death metal powerhouse Decapitated have revealed the simple, performance-forward visual for one of the most pulverizing singles from the release in “Iconoclast”.

The fourth preview of the album Cancer Culture, the latest serving follows the release of the album’s title track, the pummeling death metal cadence of “Just A Cigarette” and the Tati Shumayluk of Jinjer-assisted “Hello Death” – reiterating how the genre veterans are still producing at their peak.

On “Iconoclast”, Decapitated recruit a pillar of the culture in Robb Flynn of Machine Head to punctuate the rollout for milestone record. The band’s architect in Vogg explain the importance in having such a legend on the track. “As you probably know, we have an exceptional guest on the track, the metal legend and friend of ours, the one and only Robb Flynn. His contribution became one of my favourite parts of this album. It’s a huge honour to have Robb in this project, and I hope you will dig the song. It’s a different song – not blasting madness as most of the songs on this record, but still powerful, fast, and crushing.

Vogg adds of the album release, “We’ve been waiting for this special moment for a very long time. It seems like ages – its been five years since our latest release ‘Anticult’, with sixteen months of working on the ‘Cancer Culture’ album, plus waiting almost a year to be able to share it with you finally. You can expect to hear varied tracks, outstanding production values, fantastic artwork, and of course, as always, something you won’t have heard before on a Decapitated album.

No less intense, “Iconoclast” flexes a more subdued show of force, still plenty heavy and loaded with the kind of confrontation well-suited for the vocal venom of one, Robb Flynn. “When Vogg asked me to sing on this Decapitated track, I was honoured to jam with pioneers and such insane musicians. When he sent the track I was blown away at this incredible melodic section in the middle. When he told me the song was called Iconoclast, I knew exactly what needed to be said. An Iconoclast is ‘a destroyer of images used in religious worship’. This song had to address the hateful, growing fascist Evangelical movement growing around the world. The cruel men who wish to hide their cruelty under a cloak of faith and zealotry.”
