Formed: 1986

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'.

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).

Incantation Discusses South American Tour Issues

Incantation's John McEntee releases a strong statement about Cathedral Rock Productions in regards to the Sourth American tour issues:

“There were many problems working with Cathedral Rock Productions. I would like to let everyone in the metal community know that he is a real con-artist and after talking to many bands and promoters that have worked with him we all agree the conclusion is he is a all around a rip-off that does not care about the bands, fans or anything else except how much money he can scam from everyone.”

John continues, “Even with the major problems and financial loss that Cathedral Rock Productions had plagued on us, we still made the best of the tour and have worked with many great people. We also want to thank all the Incantation supporters that have came out to the shows along with everyone that have helped us make the best of our problems with Cathedral Rock Productions."

INCANTATION would like all metal fans to read John's whole statement, as well as a detailed account from Tour Manager Roberto Lizarraga, on their website.

Vader Frontman Checks In From The Road

The following message has been posted on Vader's official website...

"The next part of Summer Festivals we started this time in VADERs HQ - Mariusz house in Ciechocinek. For short weekend trips we usually use buses or vans to travel. This time we took our "heaviest artillery": our own nightliner!!! There's anything abort, that we need on tour - TV games, DVD, CD players also the most necessary tool... coffee express!!! The whole team: Jack, Waldi, January, Michael, Toni and our driver Kristoph were alredy waiting for us. We then loaded our gear, took some sleep and... drive to Germany. The first show was Queens of Metal Fest in Schweinfurt. Swiss REQUIEM and Austrian (or better now: european...) BELPHEGOR joined us as well. So the team is collected. We already know this place also the response was tremendous! We were afraid a bit of showers reigning around but... in vain. After two hours long attempt of taking our bus out from deep mud we continued to Calais. We have spent the whole day being traveling to Glasgow. The show in the capitol of Scotland like the other, which we were playing in between the festivals, were booked to avoid of returning to Poland for just 2-3 days before the next weekend. All in all our concerts in Soundhouse and terrible tight "Purple Turtle" in London were enough good to satisfy us and a couple of hundred Metal Heads. Next one was Holland and awesome club W2, were we raised Hell with our friends from Belphegor and then France and very special National Music Meeting in Thionnille ... Several stages in the whole city center, a bit party like atmosphere and many happy people around. And again showers and... great show and response!!! There were so many visitors amongst the crowd, who never saw Vader before... Now They all know and wait for more.

Graspop was next. I never ever saw so professional prepared festival before. Indeed! Everything, that Fans or bands need was there. Quality first!!! So high level demands real good performance ... so we did! It was for sure one of Vader's best concert ever. 6.000 crazy Maniax welcomed us fantastic !!! There were many guys from Poland as well... Awsome!!!After the show me and my band mates spend some monies for new "dark clothing". And our second driver Radek joined the team that night too...

Hellfest Festival in France - where we played next day - is also one of the most famous extreme music meeting place in Europe today. Two feed deep mud and even some bad feeling after Korn cancelled their show a day before couldn't destroy still great atmosphere of the festival . We did the best that evening giving as much anger from the stage as we could. So did all Maniax... Slaughter!!!

Next three shows in Germany were enough interesting just because they happened... There's not many bands playing shows in festival season indeed. Trier, Essen ,Kiel (Kill !!!...) - three club shows with still awesome atmosphere. What should we add? We're heading to Sweden tonight. There are 4 shows in Scandinavia and Baltic Lands before us now. Until next time !!!! Support Metal !!!

After the aforementioned gigs VADER appeared on show in Alingsas, enormous Peace And Love festival in Borlange, Tuska Festival in Helsinki and Hard Rock Laager Festival in Tallin. On July 7 the band will play a show on prestigious Warldrock Festival in Holland. Stay tuned for more news from the front line.

"Black metal [band] BELPHEGOR will share the stage with VADER during dates scheduled in June, instead of previously announced DRAGONLORD. Eric Peterson [TESTAMENT/DRAGONLORD guitarist] and Co. won't appear on the tour due to some personal issues. Here's [DRAGONLORD's] statement [regarding the matter]: 'Due to our drummer Jon Allen, who cannot make this run because of personal reasons we are without drums...we all in DRAGONLORD feel bad as we were really looking forward to doing this run with VADER, and appreciate the opportunity given! Sorry again to all the promoters who squeezed us in! Also sorry to the fans who've been waiting for to come over there...we'll do our best to get over there soon!' More...

Vader Kick Off Summer Touring Season

VADER have issued the following update:

With two shows in Holland (May 5th - Wageningen, May 6th - Dordrecht) Vader kicked off their summer touring season. The band is going to play 30 gigs, appearing on some prestigious festivals like Rock Hard Festival, Hellraiser Festival, Graspop MM Festival, Hellfest, Tuska Open Air Festival, Waldrock Festival, Kaltenbach Open Air, Wacken Open Air, Party San and Brutal Assault. The tour schedule can be found here.

Guitarist/vocalist Peter states, "We spent last weekend in Holland, playing two rather atypical shows there. The first one in Wageningen during Holland's celebrations of sovereignty (in May 1945). Great parade of the allied forces, among them a few veterans of the 1st Polish Panzer Division fighting in Belenux, about 100,000 people, 18 stages, one great party and ... Vader- the only extreme metal band in the town! We kicked off our show just before midnight, in front of thousands of metalheads hungry for carnage. What a great experience! More...

Vader Enter Studio For 25th Anniversary Album

VADER entered Hertz Studio in Poland on March 15 to re-record 25 of the best songs from their entire discography for a 25th anniversary release, to be issued in 2008. The set will also include a DVD containing tons of bonus features, such as archival recordings, live shows, video clips and other special material.

Commented frontman Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek: "Me and Daray [drums] arrived to the Hertz Studio on 15th March to start recordings of an album, which is very special indeed. This is gonna be 25 songs taken from VADER's early records. We [are focusing] mostly on 'The Ultimate Incantation', 'De Profundis', 'Black to the Blind' [and] 'Litany' [albums], [and] also [the] mini albums released in between.

"2008 [marks 25 years since] VADER took its name and started to exist as a band...

"With such unusual material we'd like to enjoy the anniversary and close up the early days of VADER to the newest generation of our die-hard fans. For the first time, the songs from such differently produced records will be available on one album. All the songs we will [record] from scratch, so they'll sound more fresh [but will] more or less [be] re-arranged. Of course, we're gonna put some never-before-released very old stuff but... this is 'top secret' at the moment. Interesting might be also guests from world's metal scene, who will appear on the album on various songs. They are our friends and brothers-in-arms, who already made a lot for metal. What can I add is that we plan to do special edition of the album, including video shots from very early days or photo album with never released old picturies specially chosen for this anniversary release.

"Lotsa work, lotsa memories... but first of all — a lot of total massacre from over two decades of creation of unholy metal madness!!!!"

VADER's "Impressions in Blood" album entered the Polish national chart at position No. 8. The band's video for the song "Helleluyah (God Is Dead)" has been posted online at YouTube.com. The clip was shot with director Andrzej Wyrozebski, who is said to be one of the leading movie producers in Poland. Janusz Król (known from the Polish fantasy movie "Wiedzmin") was responsible for all special effects and the whole set design. Slawomir Panasewicz (who has worked on over 140 video clips!) was a cameraman.

"Impressions in Blood" was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland and features artwork by Greek artist Seth (ROTTING CHRIST, PARADISE LOST).
