Chainsaw, one of the best bands on Polish melodic thrash metal scene, returns with a brand new album entitled “Evilution.” The new LP is a concept album due to the lyrical content, written by a native Scotsman, Alex Summers. It consists of ten rather dark and gruesome tales - Celtic legends telling stories of half-human and half-animal creatures, paranormal activities, supernatural powers and the evolution of evil and magic that took place in Scotland throughout the centuries. The first recording session took place in mid 2008 at Studio X in Olsztyn, Poland with the following guests: Tytus (vocals), best known from Acid Drinkers, and Mauser (guitar), an ex-member of Vader, currently involved in his project UnSun.
Chainsaw’s current line-up consists of Maciej “Maxx” Koczorowski (vocals), Jarek Gajczuk-Zawadzki (guitars), Arek “Rygiel” Rygielski (guitars), Sebastian Górski (drums), and Marek Jerchewicz (bass).
“Evilution” will be released by Metal Mind Productions on 23rd February in Europe and 7th April in USA (via MVD). More info will follow soon.
Mauser, guitarist for Unsun and formerly Vader, has posted the following blog explaining why he left Vader:
“I would like to confirm the news about my departure from Vader and I would also like to explain the reasons for my decision, so that I can clear out all misconceptions and misinterpretations about it.
"For the past six months I have been very busy with my new band - Unsun and I haven't been able to fulfil my duties in both of the bands at the same time. I knew this was coming and I knew I would end up in a situation where I would have to decide if I should leave Vader or not. The upcoming release of my new record with Unsun – The End OF Life as well as very intensive promotion of the album made me realize that the moment to leave has come.
"Therefore I decided to focus entirely on Unsun and nothing else. I have also felt the need to create something entirely new musically, something different than what I have done in the past. I would like to thank all Vader fans for the support you gave me during our shows, because these were really wonderful moments full of indescribable energy. I hope you can all understand my decision for choosing my own path because it is a virtue we all always strive for... No one can tell us what music to listen to, no one can keep us from playing the music that we love... This is what I will always fight for!"
According to the official Meinl Cymbals website, drummer Daray Brzozowski has left Polish death metal legends Vader and joined Norwegian black metallers Dimmu Borgir. This comes after recent rumours that Brzozowski and guitarist Mauser have left Vader, with Mauser concentrating on his project Unsun. Word has it that former Lost Soul drummer Adam Sierzega will be taking Brzozowski's place and both Jacek Hiro from Sceptic and Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka of Decapitated are rumoured to be joining as the new guitarist.
