Polish death metallers DECAPITATED are featured in an article in national entertainment "bible" Entertainment Weekly, hitting newsstands Friday, June 11. The article explores the controversy of the DECAPITATED name in the light of the recent decapitation of U.S. citizen Nick Berg at the hands of terrorists — a situation reminiscent of the controversy surrounding the band ANTHRAX during the anthrax scares of 2001.

"For an underground death metal band like DECAPITATED to be mentioned in the pages of Entertainment Weekly is quite a coup indeed," reads a posting on the group's web site. "Yet as brutal and technical a band as they may be, DECAPITATED are no strangers to mainstream publicity. Since the release of their Earache debut, 'Winds Of Creation', the band has been covered in a host of un-metal publications, including Billboard and Spin."
