The band’s Frontman Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek unleashes the first update:
“VADERMANIAX!!! Yesterday evening we have arrived to Brockford Railway Siding in UK, which will be our stop for 4 weeks – between April 8th and May 25th. Around 1,5 km from here there is Grindstone Studio, where Vader will record the next full length album. We’ll keep You all informed, what is going on and how is progress of recording- of course. More about studio, production and drumming session soon on http://www.vadernews.pl”
As recently announced, VADER will release the new EP “Thy Messenger” on May 31st via Nuclear Blast Records. “Thy Messenger” is now available for pre-order in CD Jewel Case and Colored Vinyl, at this location. Ships Worldwide.
The effort was recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers. The cover art was painted by Wes Benscoter, who previously worked with VADER on the De Profundis LP and has collaborated with such bands as SLAYER, KREATOR and SINISTER. A new full VADER album will be recorded later this year for a tentative autumn release.

Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek commented: “We decided to record the new EP because we knew that the full length new album won’t be released before the end of 2019. The EP includes three new tracks – mostly really vicious and aggressive tracks, even for VADER. ‘Emptiness’ is more groovy in the main riff but really heavy at the end. All the songs are fast and short, but pretty intense, I guess. We’ve also added a new version of our classic title track from ‘Litany’ . It is 20 years since we recorded that album at the Red Studio. ‘Litany’ – as a song – and many more from that album have never been performed live. This album is still one of the fan favorites in the VADER discography and in 2019 we will resurrect this whole record as part of our live shows this autumn. Another bonus is the absolute classic cover of ‘Steeler,’ which was always one of my all time favorite PRIEST songs.”
VADER, released their latest crushing album “The Empire” on November 4th 2016 via Nuclear Blast, and once again proved that their merciless riffs are made to unleash hell. “The Empire” was recorded at Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland and produced by Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawski. The stunning cover artwork was created by Joe Petagno (Led Zeppelin, Motörhead, Sodom).
