Bermuda Debuts New Video “Gnashing Teeth” From Latest Album “Nepenthe”

Bermuda debuts a new video entitled “Gnashing Teeth”, taken from the bands latest album “Nepenthe”, which was released June 16th via Urban Yeti Records. Comments the band’s vocalist Corey Bennett of the video:

“The first step in the 7 stages of acceptance of death is denial. Refusing to believe or accept the inevitable is an underestimated emotion that can lead to great things. Anger is too often considered a negative emotion when in the face of things you can’t change it’s often times what helps you survive. And yes, I willingly got buried alive.”

Check out now “Gnashing Teeth” below.

All Four Members Of Decapitated Accused Of Gang Raping A Girl On Their Tour Bus

Recently released court documents reveal disturbing details in Decapitated’s recent arrest. As reported earlier past week all four members of the band, Michal Lysejko, 27; Waclaw Kieltyka, 35; Rafal Piotrowski, 31; and Hubert Wiecek, 30, were arrested on September 09th after the band’s show in Santa Ana, CA with a potential charge of first degree kidnapping.

The charges stemmed from an incident which took place following the band’s August 31st show at “The Pin” in Spokane, WA. As it turns out, all four band members have now not just been accused of holding a female against her will, but also gang raping her on band’s tour bus, while also sexually assaulting the victim’s friend.

Spokesman.com have provided the following summary of the court documents that were revealed:

“The women said they ended up speaking with members of Decapitated and were invited to have drinks in the tour bus parked outside the venue, according to court documents. One woman “described being excited to be on the bus, and then one of the band members began grabbing her breasts,” court documents say. “He was later identified as the drummer, Michal Lysejko.”

The same woman “was uncomfortable and said the band members began speaking to each other in Polish,” court documents say. “She described the ‘vibe’ in the bus changed, and one of the members began looking at them like they were prey.”

The woman said she looked at her friend “to signal they needed to get out of there.” She then used the bathroom and was followed by the lead singer, Piotrowski, according to court documents. The woman told police Piotrowski began kissing her as she finished using the bathroom, and she began resisting when he started undoing her belt, according to court documents. She said she wanted to leave the bus with her friend, but a band member indicated her friend had already left, saying, “You have to have fun. She left you.”

The woman “attempted to push Piotrowski away but he grabbed her arm and spun her around to where she was facing the sink and mirror in the bathroom,” court documents say. “She saw in the mirror and out of the corner of her eye each of the band members taking turns raping her.”

The friend, meanwhile, said she watched the band members rape the other woman, and Piotrowski asked her to perform oral sex on him. When the friend refused, court documents say, “she was pushed to the ground and received bruises to her knees and shins.”

Shortly after leaving the tour bus and driving away, at 12:43 p.m., the friend was pulled over on North Washington Street near West Boone Avenue on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to court documents.

In the back seat of a patrol car, the friend was allowed to use her cellphone to call the other woman, who reported the rape. A state trooper said he couldn’t help without a specific location and proceeded with his DUI investigation.

The alleged victim “described her body as feeling broken,” court documents say. “After an unknown amount of time,” she told police, “Waclaw (Kieltyka) helped her put her clothing on and carried her out of the bus with another male.”

She walked north from The Pin and called several family members before calling 911, according to court documents. An officer found her near North Post Street and West Buckeye Avenue, about 2 miles from the venue. The officer also stopped by The Pin and “checked the area for the tour bus, but the band had already left Spokane for their next venue.”

The woman was taken to Providence Holy Family Hospital for a sexual assault examination.

Detectives noted she had “significant bruising to her upper arms consistent with being restrained” and “small abrasions to her knuckles that were scabbed over.” During the rape, she said, she “was digging her fist into the wall to try and distract herself from what was happening.”

Court documents say detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office interviewed the band members on Thursday.

Lysejko, the drummer, “made no comment other than he did not know who the girls were” when shown a picture of them. “He said he would not talk without using a translator,” court documents say.

Kieltyka, the lead guitarist, told detectives he saw both Piotrowski and Wiecek engaged in a sex acts with the woman in the bathroom. He agreed to have a DNA swab collected as evidence.

Piotrowski “admitted there was a party on the bus and (the women) were present. He then requested an attorney and a translator refusing to make any further statements,” court documents say. He declined to give a DNA sample.

Wiecek, the bassist, admitted the women had been on the bus, but said he “sat on the couch and did not see what was going on,” court documents say. “He then said he needed a translator so he did not misspeak. He also said no one was forced to get on the bus. He then said he did not recall what happened.”

Wiecek also declined to give a DNA sample.

A fifth man, Wojciech Cichocki, told detectives he was asleep in the cab of the tour bus and never saw the woman who reported being raped. Cichocki said he “only briefly” saw the friend who was later pulled over. “He also made a reference to (her) Instagram account but would not elaborate on it,” court documents say.”

All four members remain in custody in a Los Angeles County jail awaiting extradition to Spokane, WA. The band’s attorney Steve Graham had previously stated: “There is another side to this. We have witnesses that can testify to the fact that the accuser came to visit band of her own free will and left on good terms.”

In light of the most recent accusations now being made public, he commented: “Decapitated plan to fully fight the allegations that are brought against them, and we are fully confident that the other side of this story will be heard.”

He declined to comment further.

Decapitated Arrested In California On Suspicion Of Kidnapping Fan

After releasing the “Anticult” album via Nuclear Blast Records, Polish metal band Decapitated recently hit the road in the U.S. to support the release alongside Thy Art Is Murder.

While the tour is ongoing, Decapitated won’t be appearing on any further dates of the trek, with all four members of the band arrested in California this morning.

The Spokesman Review reported the following:

All four members of the Polish death metal band Decapitated were arrested in Santa Ana, California, early Saturday on suspicion of kidnapping a woman after their concert in Spokane on Aug. 31.

A woman reported to police just before 2 a.m. on Sept. 1 the alleged kidnapping by the band members, said Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Teresa Fuller. The band had performed with Thy Art is Murder at The Pin concert venue downtown as part of their “Double Homicide” tour. Fuller said she believes the woman attended the heavy metal concert.

The band members were arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office after their Friday night concert in Santa Ana. They have been identified as 27-year-old Michael M. Lysejko, 35-year-old Waclaw J. Kieltyka, 31-year-old Rafal T. Piotrowski and 30-year-old Hubert E. Wiecek. All are Polish nationals.

The four are in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting extradition to Spokane. Fuller said additional charges are possible. The case is still under investigation by the department’s Special Victims Unit.

Defense attorney Steve Graham of Spokane said he was hired by the band on Thursday after they became aware of the investigation.

“There is another side to this,” he said. “We have witnesses that can testify to the fact that the accuser came to visit band of her own free will and left on good terms.”

He said he told police that the band members had offered to surrender but never heard anything back. “I made it clear that I could get the guys up here ASAP and they would cooperate,” he said.

Graham said he’s concerned that they will “languish” in the Los Angeles County Jail for weeks before being returned to Spokane, but said the four will not fight extradition and will return to Spokane willingly.

Live footage from the band’s Santa Ana show can be seen below. At this point no statement has arrived from the band or label, but it seems a good bet there won’t be any further U.S. appearances on the remaining dates. The band was also scheduled to tour Europe alongside King Parrot in October and November.

Devil’s Emissary Releasing New EP “Demiurge Asceticism”

Two years after the release of the band’s sophomore album, Devil’s Emissary returns with a new mini-album entitled “Demiurge Asceticism.” Pre-orders are now available and the EP will be released on the 9th of September, 2017 via Third Eye Temple.

To get a foretaste of the release, stream the track “Black Hole Meditation” below. The following press release was also issued:

“‘Demiurge Asceticism’ contains nearly 20 minutes of lunatic incantations, divided into three anthems praising the Harvester of Worlds – the great Swallower of Suns. A black metal of death, shrouded in the left hand path philosophy, is now carried on the banners of this ambitious Polish horde.

“The black metal formula, well-known from the two previous releases, has transfigurated into a death metal hybrid, but still honouring respect to the band’s roots. Low-tuned vibrations are raising the chants from the ancient tombs of this Emissary trio coming from the south of Poland. The Message of the slow-stepping Demiurge resounds with echoes of Australian, Greek and Canadian death metal roots.

“It is the manifest of heaven’s violent death – the will of those below as foretold in the Horizon Temple. Open to the pilgrims of fire. Become everything and nothing.”

Decapitated Releases “Earth Scar” Music Video

The Polish metal extremists from Decapitated are inching closer to the release of their seventh album “Anticult,” which arrives via Nuclear Blast on July 7th. The band has further stoked anticipation for the album by issuing the video for the new track “Earth Scar.”

“We’re really excited to release the second song from our upcoming new record – ‘Earth Scar!,'” said guitarist Vogg. “I have always drawn influence from all spectrums of metal and this song and? our new? record really reflect those influences. “Much like ‘Never,’ this song has been designed to crush on a stage and we can’t wait to add it to our set. Rasta wrote the lyrics with a lot of metaphorical content dealing with touring. The opposing lifestyles from the ‘normal,’ day-to-day of being at home vs. being on the road and seeing our ‘tribe’ interacting with the music and the almost restorative qualities of that. We hope you all enjoy it and we can’t wait to see you all very soon!”

The new video can be seen below, and if you missed it, the history of Decapitated was recently covered in our Sunday Old School column here.
