Polish technological death metal virtuosos BEHEADED will release their eighth studio album, “Cancer culture”May 27 through Nuclear Explosion Records. The official music video for the LP’s lead single, the title track, can be seen below.

BEHEADED guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kiełtyka commented: “The video was shot last December in Płock, Poland. This time we teamed up with Mateusz Winkielthe director of Studio Mania, with whom we worked closely on the full script. It was a good experience, and I hope our fans enjoy the final effect of the work and an important message that we tried to wrap up in this image.”

Vogg previously said of the new track: “It was not easy to choose the first single from “Cancer culture”. Each song has this different vibe that we would like to show as soon as possible and that we would like to be proud of. Since “Cancer culture” is the first song on the album, we decided it would be the perfect way to introduce you to new music. It’s the first chapter of the album, and you know what to expect.”

He continued, “Finally, after so many months of waiting, we got it. The announcement of our brand new album “Cancer culture” and a new single is out!

“Expectations were high, and we also challenged ourselves with this album. But I think the hard work is paying off.

“We had the opportunity to bring together some incredible people who took care of the production and helped us to give the best of ourselves with this album.
Still, Jarek Szubrycht (“Carnival Is Eternal”) wrote for us amazing words about the disproportion between the dreams, ambitions and aspirations of humanity.

“The lead engineer for the album was Tomasz Zed Zalewski (“Anticult”),David Castilloresponsible for mixing the album, and Ted Jensen for the final mastering touch. For the cover, for the first time, we worked with Fabio Timpanaroan Italian artist whose art perfectly describes what we wanted to tell through visual art.

“Don’t misunderstand the meaning of the album’s title. It has a much larger context. You’ll be surprised at what we delivered this time.”
