Death metal legends Vader released the ‘absolute heaviest’ studio album of their career last year, according to frontman Peter W.
The album in question is ‘Tibi Et Igni’ which was released globally via Nuclear Blast Records to widespread critical acclaim.
“Once again, Poland’s death metal masters obliterate all-comers with another imperious display of shrewd songcraft and flagrant savagery.” – Metal Hammer (UK)
“Tibi Et Igni” is the hammer smashing the nails into the cross. A monstrosity!” – Jarne Brauns, Party.San Open-Air (GER)
“The epicness of ‘Necropolis’ and harshness of ‘Welcome To The Morbid Reich’ melt together in a wonderful manner! ‘Tibi Et Igni’ opens the complete VADER universe!” – Lords Of Metal (NL)
There is some contention as to the beginnings of Vader, but the truth is that they began in the autumn of 1983 by Piotr ‘Peter’ Wiwczarek (‘Bardast’ and later ‘Behemoth’ back then) playing the bass and the guitarist Zbyszek ‘Vika’ Wroblewski. Extreme metal was about to be born in Poland and Vader were among the pioneers of that genre in the newly emerging underground – and the only band from that era still reigning! The first crucial point in the band’s history was their participation in the first Polish heavy metal festival – Metalmania in 1986, where they played to an audience of around 5000 persons.
Vader recorded their first official material in 1989 in Olsztyn which became the 4-track demo ‘Necrolust’. This was their first studio release that reached beyond the Polish borders and earned them some excellent reviews across the globe. They released the demo ‘Morbid Reich’ in 1990 which eventually gained the status of being one of the bestselling metal demos in history. ‘Morbid Reich’ was also the first release to host Vader’s now infamous logo.
