All four members of Decapitated were arrested early on Saturday, 9th September, in Santa Ana, California, on suspicion of kidnapping a woman after their August 31st concert in Spokane.

Police received a report from a woman shortly before 2.00am on September 1st about an alleged kidnapping by the band members, according to Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Teresa Fuller.

The band had performed with Thy Art Is Murder at The Pin concert venue as part of their 'Double Homicide' tour. The woman who made the report is believed to have attended the concert.

The band members - 27-year-old Michal M Lysejko, 35-year-old Waclaw J Kieltyka, 31-year-old Rafal T Piotrowski and 30-year-old Hubert E Wiecek - are all Polish nationals.

The four are in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting extradition to Spokane and Fuller said additional charges are possible. The case is still under investigation by the department's Special Victims Unit.

Defense Attorney Steve Graham of Spokane said he was hired by the band on Thursday after they became aware of the investigation. He said:

"There is another side to this. We have witnesses that can testify to the fact that the accuser came to visit band of her own free will and left on good terms."

Graham also said he told police that the band members had offered to surrender but never heard anything back.

"I made it clear that I could get the guys up here ASAP and they would cooperate."

Decapitated were touring North America in support of their seventh album, 'Anticult', which was released on July 7th via Nuclear Blast.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
