DECAPITATED's Attorney Responds To Kidnapping Charges: 'There Is Another Side To This'

An attorney for the Polish extreme metal band DECAPITATED has claimed their innocence in the alleged kidnapping a woman after their concert in Spokane on August 31.

Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Teresa Fuller told The Spokesman-Review that a woman reported the alleged kidnapping by the musicians to police just before 2 a.m. on September 1. The woman is believed to have attended DECAPITATED‘s concert with THY ART IS MURDER at The Pin concert venue in downtown Spokane as part of the two bands’ “Double Homicide” tour.

Defense attorney Steve Graham, who was hired by the band on Thursday after they became aware of the investigation, told The Spokesman-Review: “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 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,” he said.

The DECAPITATED bandmembers — identified as 27-year-old Michael M. Lysejko, 35-year-old Waclaw J. Kieltyka, 31-year-old Rafal T. Piotrowski and 30-year-old Hubert E. Wiecek — were arrested early Saturday following their concert at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California. They are in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting extradition to Spokane. Fuller said additional charges are possible.

DECAPITATED has been touring North America in support of its seventh album, “Anticult”, which was released on July 7 via Nuclear Blast.
