VADER, released their crushing new album “The Empire” on November 4th 2016 via Nuclear Blast, and once again proved that their merciless riffs are made to unleash hell. Without doubt, “The Empire” falls under the category of VADER’s classic albums. The impressive monument that they have built with their 13th studio album immediately found its place in metal history and proves that VADER don’t need to make their peace with the world; they never did, and they certainly don’t now with “The Empire” – especially after writing more than 30 years’ worth of Death Metal history.
“The Empire” was recorded at Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland and produced by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesławski. The stunning cover artwork was created by Joe Petagno (Led Zeppelin, Motörhead, Sodom).
