2017 release, the seventh album from the Polish metal band. The opening track on Anticult, has an ominous voice to it. The clean guitar motif feels dangerous, as if warning in a language unfamiliar that the world before us will soon not be the same. Certainly, trail-blazing masterpiece ôImpulseö is the harbinger of change. The ceaseless assault of riffs, drums, bass, and vocalsùexpertly delivered by guitarist Waclaw æVoggÆ Kieltyka, drummer Michal Lysejko, bassist Hubert Wiecek, and vocalist Rafal æRastaÆ Piotrowskiùis unlike anything before it. But ôImpulseö is more than the sum of its parts. Between VoggÆs monstrous volleys and RastaÆs brutal existentialist barks, thereÆs something else in the mix. Not just DecapitatedÆs penchant for building tension by continually winding up and layering upon themes either. ThatÆs a trademark harkening all the back to 2000Æs classically-inspired Winds of Creation full-length. On ôImpulseö (and definitely throughout the rest of Anticult), Decapitated weave in thrusts of brightness. Turns out, Anticult was designedùwith an almost devil may care attitudeùthat way from the start. While Blood Mantra mayÆve taken Decapitated all over the world, exposed hordes of new fans to the Poles, and opened a few new doors, the Krosno-based quartet are confident Anticult will raise their profile even more, allowing Decapitated to tour with just about anybody. ItÆs got the songs. Tracks like ôImpulseö, ôOne Eye Nationö, and ôNeverö are guaranteed to hook fans from any genre of metal.
