Decapitated's sophomore album finds the Polish death metal prodigies taking their blistering style to the next level of sickness, and they deliver one of the strongest metal albums since Morbid Angel's Covenant. The vocals sound less homo sapien and more like demonic hellspawn, which intertwines with the exquisite death metal opera being performed by the rest of the band. The drumming here is relentless, pounding its way into the skull with furious determination. Occasionally this hammering process of battering the listener's eardrums seems similar to Brazilian death metal masters Krisiun, which is quite a feat. Decapitated must be one of the best groups inhabiting the European countryside as far as guitar playing goes; they could hold their own with even the great Iron Maiden. Decapitated may still be young men, but their brand of uncompromising metal stands as a testament for the legacy of metal as a whole. Nihility is a remarkable album that displays some of the best death metal to be released in the early 21st century.

In a world injected with metal waste, this band is the needle in the haystack. If you're looking for good, fresh, imaginative metal on the extreme side, pick Decapitated. They really are exactly what every metal fan is praising them as; a breath of fresh air for the metal masses. Nihility continues the unbelievable path that Winds Of Creation paved. Every composition is unlike anything you'll hear from anyone else. These guys are crafty and talented from the word go. Classicaly trained, they've combined their young skills to a precision peak that is seldom matched. Look to Poland for some inspirational masterpieces from here on out.
