2000. Winds of Creation
is the debut album by band Decapitated. It was released in April . The album was produced by Piotr Wiwczarek (aka Peter), from Polish death metal band Vader.
Winds of Creation is notable for the ages of the musicians; despite the technical nature of the music, drummer Vitek (born January 1984) was 15, bassist Rygiel (born April 1983) was 16, guitarist Vogg (born December 1981) was 17, and vocalist Sauron (born June 1981) was 18 at the time of recording.
After listening to this album for the first time, I immediately started researching more about this band. I freaked out when I discovered that they were all teenagers, and especially at how Vitek was only 15 years of age, drumming something more insane than many metal albums to date. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. This album stands out from the crowd of albums created by adults, yet it’s created by teens. It’s really cool also to think that those guttural vocals are coming from a 17 year old. It’s just pure excellence.
This is an all around great release and perfect for any fan of technical death metal.
