Source: Decapitated Name New Bassist
Poland’s death metal stalwarts Decapitated’s short search for a new bassist has reportedly come to an end. According to sources, the band has landed none other than Seattle, Washington’s own Anthony Ray. Ray, as most of you know had a pretty impressive musical career from the mid 80′s to the mid 90′s. In fact, he even teamed up with Metal Church for an interesting spin on Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” early in his career. As a big of a legend in the bass community, he really took off creatively and his entourage was even spotted for an extended time on Broadway. Ray brings a new creative touch to Decapitated’s style of technical death metal. Although he reportedly has admitted to have not owned any of the band’s albums since “Nihility”, the mutual respect between he and the band make this a perfect fit. Time will tell how the fans warm up to this, but given his practice ethic I bet they will be happy as it goes on. Ray has been practicing on Gorguts, Atheist, and Obscura basslines according to a publicist, so he surely has the chops.
We’ll have more on this story after they are put on the glass…
