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'.

Vader Posts New Tour Blog

Vader is currently on the "Sign of Hell" tour with Gorgoroth, and the band has now checked in with the following tour blog:

"If you read our previous reports from shows in England, you would probably know what to expect from Bristol. In fact, not much changed, except for the name of a club and its size. Again – great turnover, many Polish people coming to see us and the show itself went, as usually, according to the plan.

"No accidents, some minor technical problems which are unavoidable – like for example a fan jumping on stage and switching off Peter’s or Spider’s guitar effects what results in Vader giving an unplugged show ;-)

"This time instead of The Sickening we had a local support which I didn’t have a chance to see as I was writing tour reports. Valkyrja, typically, gave a smashing show. One can tell at once that they put a lot of passion in their performance and music is what counts most for them! Gorgoroth gave their show staying at their usual level as well.

"After the gig we got back to the nightliner to have a well-deserved beer and go straight to bed. The next day would be the last show on the English land – Plymouth. We need to be at our best!"

At midnight we got into a train to a city of Krzyz ('Cross' in English, sic!!!), then another change to a train to Kostrzyn on the border of Germany. We were picked up there by the Massive Music crew around 8 a.m. And it all felt like home… our second home for the upcoming 1,5 month. We got to Berlin around noon. It was a first show of the tour so there was really lot of work and preparations. We even managed to make a sound check for each band!

Vader Announces Show In Israel

Polish death metal act Vader will play a show in Tel Aviv this coming August 26th, 2011 at the Sublime Club. Vader will be supported by local death metal band Eternal Gray, (who's new album is coming in October through Season Of Mist), Spawn Of Evil, and Phantom Pain.

The event, titled the "Summer of 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.

Promoter Yishai Swearts of Raven Music commented on the show: "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's 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!"
