Multi-cultural Metallers Decrypted will release their explosive new single, 'Equinox Of Eternal Embers', this Friday, 29th September 2017, and today the brand new video for the song is premiering here on MetalTalk.

Decrypted are a vastly dynamic group now residing in London with Martin Luczynski (guitar) and Rafal Siek (bass) originally hailing from Poland, alongside Ricardo Almeida (guitar/backing vocals) who is a Portuguese national while Vincent Labelle (drums) was born in France. Vocalist Steve Kerr is the only member of the band actually born in England.

Harnessing their unique beginnings and varied backgrounds, the quintet have poured their diversity into their music, creating a sound that is heavy, aggressive, technical, and unique.


The original concept of the band was dreamt up in Poland by guitarist Martin Luczynski who was compelled to move to London in pursuit of a better life.

  In 2013, an early incarnation of the band was formed initially in a small living room in the East End of London, with no more than a digital drum kit, a guitar and a glut of inspiration.

Jump forward to 2016, and Decrypted's line-up was finally complete with the recruitment of frontman Steve Kerr, who enabled the group to burst out of the rehearsal studio and onto London's live music scene.

The rising Metallers are rapidly creating an army of followers and this is only set to increase with 'Equinox Of Eternal Embers' and their forthcoming EP, 'Solitude Of Self Awareness'.

Decrypted are:
Steve Kerr - Vocals
Rafal Siek - Bass
Martin Luczynski - Guitar
Ricardo Almeida - Guitar/Backing Vocals
Vincent Labelle - Drums

monsters of rock

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.
