Don't miss the chance of seeing live this real avant-garde machine serving in the name of black metal!
The works on the newest album are finished. We proudly present to you a cover artwork for Vader's masterpiece "Welcome To The Morbid Reich". Here are a few words from the cover's author, Zbigniew Bielak (artworks for Watain or Destroyer 666 to name just a few):
"To follow closely on Lars von Trier's spectacular nazi gaffe in Cannes, I'd say that the new Vader cover artwork gives a subtle hint of what would happen if the good old Cthulhu would be contracted to erect a pyramid for Thule... Well, who knows what they were really doing in subterranean galleries of Harz? One thing is certain - propelled by the spirit of most Ancient Ones, Vader indeed stand tall as death metal's Wunderwaffe, and I hope the cover fits well in their armory of morbid imagination!"
The album will be released in Europe on August 13th by Nuclear Blast Records. Street date for USA is expected to be September 13th.
Below you will find a complete tracklist of the album "Welcome To The Morbid Reich":
1. "Ultima Thule"

Raven Music in Association with Massive Music Proudly Presents: VADER - LIVE IN ISRAEL - August 26th 2011.
Polish Death Metal Commando VADER will play a show in Tel Aviv in August 26th 2011 in Sublime Club.
VADER will be supported by local Death Metallers Eternal Gray (who's new album coming in October through Season Of Mist), Spawn Of Evil, and Phantom Pain.
The event, titled SUMMER DEATH IN ISRAEL is VADER's second coming to the holy land after a successful show in 2002, VADER will play tunes from all the band's albums and will of course headline the night.
Stated Promoter Yishai Swearts of Raven Music:
"When I first heard VADER's demo tape, many many years ago, I knew that the band will grow to be one the main forces in extreme metal, I follow the band since the beginning and with fantastic albums as "Litany" "Black To The Blind" "De Profundis" etc they became what I knew they will - A Top Death Metal act, without betraying the style, without lose faith, always stick to their guns.
It was VADER latest album "Necropolis" that finally moved me to invite the band again to Israel, to play for the many extreme metal fans who are looking forward to bang heads to the massive VADER artillery.
I am proud to invite and promote a band with agenda, with an honest belief, and well respected roots, I am sure both the Israeli fans, and VADER will have a night to remember !"

In around one weeks' time a report #5 will be ready. Wieslawski Brothers will show you around the world of mixing and the album production. Our label, Nuclear Blast, will get the whole material till the end of May. Since then we will start a countdown to the album's first release date... Also in May we will try to put on our site a pre-release demo version of one of the songs (available only on Vader and Nuclear Blast websites). During this time we will try to make you more familiar with the process of the album creation - through a series of short interviews with people involved in the album's production. So drop by here more often!!!
The process of creation "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" has run smoothly so far and according to the plan. The report presents the next step in work on Vader's new album. Below you can read a few sentences from Pajak about his impressions on the work progress in the studio. The fourth part of the report next week! \m/
"A few days ago my first visit to Hertz Studio came to an end. The works went quite undisturbed. I recorded my three songs plus the solo parts. I also managed to record the solo parts for Peter's tracks and some guitar parts to the bonus songs. Currently we're working on the remaining tracks and get down to recording the bass parts. So far I'm quite pleased with the results of work. I really like the initial sounding of instruments and I know that it's only the beginning. Wieslawcy Bros are doing a marvellous job. They can also be very motivating and suggesting interesting solutions sometimes. We're about to finish the rest of the material soon. Then Peter will record his vocal parts and the beginning of May is the time for mixes and mastering. Houk!"
Hi again!!!!! There is next video report available below. This time You'll know "Spider's" way of work in studio. You will follow recording progress next week... Welcome to the Morbid Reich!!!!
Last week we ended the drums recording session for the newest album. Below are Pawel's personal impressions:
"Just the day before yesterday we finished recording drums for the new Vader's album - "Welcome to the Morbid Reich". Our revisit in the Hertz Studio proceeded undisturbed and once again brothers Wieslawski proved to be professionals to the core.
We started our session showing up in the studio on March 14th, at 9 p.m. after a few hours' drive on our perfect Polish roads with a trailer full of gear - I really recommend it! J This day we only managed to do the load-in and hit the sack - as we were dead on our feet. The real session started the next day with setting up the drums, changing the skins, placing microphones and tuning the drums.Then, together with Slawek and Wojtek, we were adjusting the sound looking for "this is it" in each element of the set. It lasted for the whole day and a half but it was definitely worth it. The sound of the drums just kicks asses! For the next few days the schedule of work was practically the same - breakfast, setting the recording plan for the day, preparing a pilot for the drums, recording, monitoring plus corrections if needed, recording, supper and going to bed J We also went for some sightseeing with Bartek Krysiuk from Hermh - who knows this guy, knows what followed.
For 7 days we recorded 9 new songs, 2 covers and a remake of veeeeeery old Vader's track. The results of our work will be available probably in August. For now, look forward to the studio reports and the pictures from the further recording of "WTTMR".
Quite recently I've also become the official endorser of Paiste's cymbals. These are definitely the best sounding cymbals on the marketand they were my wildest dream since I started to play the drums. I'm proud that now I can join thePaiste family. Of course you will hear them on the newest Vader album."

New musicians, some changes and, hopefully, new great news - hence the new opening in the band. The beginning of the year was marked with Peter's decision about line-up reshuffle - he thanked Reyash for two-years' cooperation. The band and Reyash parted their ways because the latter recently failed on many fields. The main reason for this news is also his statement about reasons for leaving the band which are not true. Here's Peter's explanation on the situation:
"Hail to all Vadermaniax!!! I decided to write this - a little bit untimely - news to correct Reyash's official stance on leaving the band on Blabbermouth. I decided to thank Reyash for over two-year's cooperation in January 2011 and it was solely my decision. The decision was made on his recent behaviour only and definitely not due to his "personal reasons". Reyash is a great mate BUT this isn't enough to be the part of VADER.
What's funny is that my expectations are really not that high as it might seem from the personal changes in the band throughout the recent years. VADER is appreciated by YOU just because of us keeping the style, sincerity and quality REGARDLESS the so-called public opinion. Reyash knew that he was to play till the end of the season (promotion of "Necropolis") and his staying in the band depended exclusively on his work during the past two years. I can't understand his trying to give a good account of himself in this situation, the more so because it is insincere.
Nevertheless, me and all people contributing to the presence of VADER Commando wish Reyash success, all the best and satisfaction from his work! One should keep good memories only. We're also glad that after Reyash's official statement appeared, we were contacted by lots of bass players willing to join the band, most of them from abroad. However, the decision about who will replace Tomek was made a few weeks ago. We invited Hal (Hermh, Dead Infection, Abused Majesty). This line-up will be seen on stage since April."
Another change was made behind the drums. Due to family matters Pawel decided to leave the band. He is, however, recording the new album with us and will support VADER on the already settled gigs, festivals and tours in May, June and July. His natural successor became very talented 21-year-old English musician James Stewart playing in DIVINE CHAOS. Under this link (http://www.myspace.com/divinechaosband) you can watch him in action when recording the album for his band. James will join VADER in summer season, we don't know yet since which concert.
The choice was obvious, we know James from one of the VADER tours, his band supported us on several gigs. We gave him an assignment to do; he prepared some tracks, presented them on the video and became the new member of our crew! So simple, isn't it? He's a very young, talented and disciplined musician. He belongs to the new wave artists - ambitious, exquisite in their technique, keeping track of the technical novelties. At the same time he's a nice guy, drinking his tea with milk (brrrr!) and craving for success. I believe in this guy! (Mariusz Kmiołek - Massive Music Management)
Polish death metal masters are currently in the studio recording their new album. But this doesn't hinder them from preparing for summer gigs.
