Polish death metal legends VADER have issued their 2017 recap and thanks for their loyal fans, read below:
VADERMANIAX !!! 2017 is already behind us… It was really good year indeed. We played 83 shows on 4 continents! For biggest part of the year we focused on VADER last album „The Empire” – recorded and released by Nuclear Blast at the end of 2016. However, the last couple of months belonged to our debut album „The Ultimate Incantation” , which came out 25 years ago! On this occasion we played very special set including the whole album in several clubs of Poland and…we will continue that idea in 2018 as well. You were asking for that – and You will get it!
Well. We’d like to THANK YOU ALL for so successful 2017 !!! For our best crew and all those , who we had huge pleasure to work with. To our always busy manager and Massive Music, spending His life with Vader since almost 30 years. To our dedicated Friends in Nuclear Blast , where we always feel like a part of gigantic Metal Family. To all bands, which we were sharing stages in the whole crazy world with. To all supporters and believers. And finally to YOU, our die hard Fans, without whom VADER would never exist for as many decades \m/
THX for 2017…and WELCOME in 2018 !!!

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).
