Decapitated replace vocalist

Decapitated vocalist Sauron has left the Polish death metal after nine years in the line-up. Here's is a statement from Sauron regarding his departure: "After long consideration I have decided to leave Decapitated. It was not an easy decision, however, I could reconcile the welfare of the band with my personal plans, and hence quitting appeared to be the best solution not hampering the evolution of Decapitated. In the face of the wide-scaled plans of the band I had to decide between being a member of Decapitated and my personal objectives. Moreover, another reason that contributed to my decision have been some health complications. In the first place I would like to thank my friends from the band for those nine years. I would also like to salute all the fans and people who supported us throughout all those years. I’m turning the mic over to an appropriate person, and what is more, I’m sure that this change will do good to the band. Respect and good luck, Covan! For my part, I’m going to keep track of Decapitated and support them in every possible way." Replacing Sauron is Covan, formerly of Atrophia Red Sun. He will appear on the band's next album and participate in their upcoming shows.
