Dekapitator – We Will Destroy…You Will Obey (1999)
Dekapitator blasted out of California in 1999 with a debut that was simply some good, friendly, violent fun!
Featuring members of Californian death metal masters Exhumed, this death/thrash opus was produced by the inimitable James Murphy (Obituary, Testament, Disincarnate, Death and more) and it reeked of old-school quality from start to finish.
The name of the game was riffs – peeled off at a ridiculous rate and channeling the genre-defining early work of Exodus and Possessed – and thrash fans ‘in the know’ revelled in an absolute masterclass of raw production, time-honoured thrash barks and shrieks and more hardcore thrashin’ than is medically encouraged.
Heads bled and necks were broken….one shot, one kill indeed!
