All four members of Decapitated have been formally charged with rape.
They were arrested in Santa Ana, California, and held on suspicion of kidnapping and were later accused of gang-raping a woman following a show in Spokane, Washington, in August.
All four were held at a Los Angeles jail and were recently extradited to Spokane and charged with kidnapping in the first-degree, with the Spokesman-Review now reporting that Michal Lysejko, Waclaw Kietlyka, Rafal Piotrowski and Hubert Wiecek have now been formally charged with rape.
Piotrowski and Kieltyka have been charged with second-degree rape, while Lysejko and Wiecek face a third-degree charge.

The band issued a statement last month strongly denying the allegations, while their lawyer insisted that there was “another side to this.”
It’s alleged that the band raped a woman in the bathroom of their tour bus after a show at the city’s The Pin on August 31 this year.
Decapitated cancelled all of their 2017 touring plans due to the uncertainty of how long legal proceeding would take.
