Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka - 1982-2007


Drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka of the Polish extreme metal band DECAPITATED passed away in a Russian hospital from injuries sustained in a recent road collision. He was 23 years old. Vitek and DECAPITATED singer Covan (real name: Adrian Kowanek) were hurt in an accident earlier in the week involving DECAPITATED's tour bus and a truck carrying wood in Gomel, on the Russia/Belarus border. Both musicians reportedly sustained serious head injuries in the collision, which is believed to have been the fault of the band's driver (although this has not yet been officially confirmed). According to the Polish Internet portal Onet.pl, Vitek underwent trepanation, a form of surgery in which a hole is drilled or scraped into the skull, and was due to be transported to a hospital in Krakow, Poland for further treatment. Covan's family released a statement yesterday (Thursday, November 1) that the vocalist's condition had improved. At the time, the vocalist was still said to be at a hospital in Novozybkov, Russia, where he and Vitek were taken following the accident. This is truly a great loss to the metal community, Decapitated were and still are one of the defining bands in the technical death metal genre and will always be regarded as one of the death metal greats. Your memory will always live on Vitek.


*EDIT* yeah... the subtitle thing should say "Decapitated Drummer" but I messed it up.

...this sucks, I had tickets to see them and Amon Amarth on the 19th.

Another musician who didn't live to see age 30, what a pity. One thing for sure he's up there jamming with Hendrix, Morrison, Moon, Joplin etc..
