Formed: 1986
From: Olsztyn, Poland
Last Known Status: Active

Background

Formed in Poland in 1986, it was three years before the band's 'Necrolust' demo saw them attain the attention of the underground, and led to the band's now infamous 'Morbid Reich' cassette release via the Polish Carnage Records, a release which legend has it was one of the biggest selling Death Metal demos/cassettes ever. The band signed to Earache in 1992 and in July of that year Vader recorded their one and only Earache album 'The Ultimate Incantation' with producer Paul Johnson.

Subsequently the band toured Europe with Bolt Thrower and Grave, and also hit the US with Deicide and Suffocation, but then left Earache to puruse a career on many and varied labels, gaining a gretaer reputation with each release for a more intellectual lyrical stance as well as sound based heavily around drummer Doc's amazing blastbeat control. As the band continued churning out album after album, they moved towards their own unique style of death-thrash metal fusion with the landmark releases of 'Litany' and 'Revalations'.

Masachist Recording Debut Album

Guitarist Thrufel (AZARATH, YATTERING) has issued the following update regarding his MASACHIST project, also featuring Daray (drummer of VADER, VESANIA and NEOLITHIC):

"We are currently recording our debut album 'Death March Fury' at Progresja studio in Warsaw [Poland]. So far we have recorded the drum and guitar parts. As for the drums, I have to say that Daray totaly outdid himself this time. Absolute fury, violence and bone breaking! In his own words, he has never before recorded such insane drum lines, and I must add that this album will once again prove that he truly deserves to wear that black belt of extreme drumming!!! I have played with many amazing drummers, including Zombek (YATTERING), Inferno and recently Adam from LOST SOUL (awesome death metal band), but fuck! Right now Daray is simply the best! Non-believers will soon be proven wrong" More...

TESTAMENT recently recruited Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN, SYSTEMATIC) to play the drums on new CD. The group was previously rehearsing and writing new material with British drummer Nick Barker (CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR), but Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and international work visa issues have prevented Barker from continuing to be involved in the project.

Bostaph, who was a member of TESTAMENT for a brief period starting around February 2004, had previously played several live dates with the group in 1992 and appeared on the band's 1993 live EP, "Return to the Apocalyptic City". He also toured with TESTAMENT in 2006.

TESTAMENT's current lineup is rounded out by Chuck Billy on vocals, Eric Peterson on rhythm guitar, Alex Skolnick on lead guitar and Greg Christian on bass.

Vader Members Comment On Decapitated Drummer

Polish death metallers VADER have issued the following statement regarding the passing of DECAPITATED drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka, who died at the age of 23 in a Russian hospital from injuries sustained in a recent road collision:

"Known from such bands as DECAPITATED, DIES IRAE, PANZER X... 23-year old, extremely talented drummer, our brother in metal and dear friend passed away... This is another huge loss for the metal scene and the saddest news we have heard this year... we are all in shock...

"VADER members would like to express their deepest condolences to his family and frends. Vitek — R.I.P."

DECAPITATED singer Covan (real name: Adrian Kowanek) was also hurt in the accident, which involved the band's tour bus and a truck carrying wood in Gomel, on the Russia/Belarus border. The frontman reportedly also sustained a head injury in the collision, which is believed to have been the fault of the band's driver (although this has not yet been officially confirmed). Covan has since been moved to a hospital in Kraków, Poland. Doctors describe his condition as stable and he is showing signs of improvement every day.

"Good to see You all again!!!!

Vader needs a vacation as well...That's the reason , why there was no news for a couple of weeks on our site.

Here is some new informations collected in last month... If You already noticed, there is new DVD gonna be released soon. The show was recorded in the club Stodola in Warsaw. That's why the title came from (...And Blood Was Shed In Warsaw). The main part of the DVD are the songs from our last releases , BUT... there are some rarities on this material like 'Sword of the Witcher'! What the Hell is that? There's CD-Project RED who work on PC games and who asked us to compose a song , which is gonna be kinda "trailer-song" for their upcoming game. The title of the game is The Witcher and this is pretty fresh RTS in the fantastic , filled with brutality and Magic world of the Witcher (from the Sapkowski novels). More than awesome graphics are made by world famous Mr.Baginski (1st prize.... for Cathedral) and give the game revolutionary character indeed! We said "yes!" and recorded the song in May in Hertz Studio. 'The Sword Of the Witcher' is an absolutely differnet piece of music compared to previous Vader works but still Metal full of fire, beasts, warriors and... blood!!!

We were but affraid, that because of many instruments recorded there will be a problem to play this song alive. However, thanx to new technology we are able to do it and we plan to add this Witcher-song to the set list on the upcoming Blitzkrieg IV-2.

On July 10th in Bolkov Castle we have realised a video clip for 'Sword Of the Witcher' with cooperation with Intermedia. There are the same guys who were working on 'Hellelujah !!!' video clip recently...This new picture will be available on DVD as well. We didn't have too much time to work with this clip, but... it's always nice to see something so different than 'This is the War' or just mentioned 'Hellelujah!! '. Fire , Steel and Magic!!!!!!!!

What else? In few days we finalize recordings of the aniversary album entitled XXV. This one will include 25 Vader hits from early days re-recorded again. There will be some rarities on the limited special edition as well....

We're also practicing with new set for the Blitz' IV/2... You know the bands already so I can give You some information, that there'll be different set in the cities, we were played in last year and the new places on tour. We start with some shows in Russia in mid of September. And that's it for now! More news soon....... Metal United!!!!!!!!"

Vader has also uploaded 2 mp3 files with songs 'Helleluyah!!! (God Is Dead)' and 'Warlords' taken from the upcoming DVD. You can download the tracks here: http://www.vader.pl/mp-e.html.

The ...And Blood Was Shed in Warsaw DVD is scheduled for release on October 15th in Europe and on November 5th in the US (via MVD). Artwork (pictured) and layout was done by young and very talented Brazilian artist Marcelo HVC, known from great works for such bands as GORGOROTH, LORD BELIAL, NECROPHAGIA to name a few...
