Decapitated are to headline this year’s Mammothfest 2018 which takes place across various venues in Brighton from Friday 5th October to Sunday 7th October 2018.


The Polish Death Metallers’ ‘Anticult’ UK tour was scheduled for last November but was cancelled after all four band members were held in America for nearly four months on rape charges that were proven false.


Decapitated are also confirmed to play Czech Deathfest in Červený Kostelec, Czech Republic on Thursday 14th June and this is currently the first date they will play since their Californian ordeal ended.

Mammothfest is their only other confirmed date so far but we’re expecting their schedule to fill rapidly now that justice has prevailed and they can resume their career.

The band were cleared in January and made a statement on their offical Facebook page this afternoon which you can, and should, read here.

MetalTalk have covered Decapitated’s ordeal since the story first broke last year and have supported the band every step of the way. Innocent until proven guilty is a fundamental part of our democracy and we applaud the band for speaking out against those who condemned them before they had gone to trial.

Here’s a recap of Decapitated’s last six months. Now it’s onwards to claim the success they deserve.
