Dictated attracted attention from renowned metal musicians such as Henri Sattler (God Dethroned), Jason Keyser (Ex- Skinless, Origin) and Tom Whitty (Dyscarnate), who offered their talents for the creation of the second album ‘The Deceived’ (2014) which was recorded at the Soundlodge Studio, DE. Metal Blade Records was immediately impressed and offered to release the album under its banner.
After the release, the band joined the grind-fanatics of Lividity in 2016 on yet another European tour wreaking havoc with a brand-new show and line up. At the end of the year, the band was invited to head-line an extensive Asian tour. Seizing this opportunity, Dictated became the very first European death metalband ever to set foot on some of the cities in Nepal and India.
This experience led Dictated with new creative input and drove the band into the studio (Double Impact,NL) once more. New album out October 25th, 2019!
