Vader Posts New Song "Grand Deceiver" Online

Polish extreme metal veterans Vader will be releasing a new EP titled Thy Messenger on May 31st this year. Today, the band has revealed the lyric video for new track and digital single 'Grand Deceiver'. Check it out below.

The band states: "We are so excited to give you new Vader song from our fresh record! 'Grand Deceiver' is the opening track on Thy Messenger EP and perfect explanation of what you all may expect with the upcoming releases. Sharp as razor and brutal as Hell track is just an appetizer before the new Vader album to come. Chris of Nuclear Blast created this brilliant lyric video, which you can watch while waiting for Thy Messenger. Sit comfortably, play it LOUD and…ENJOY!!!"

The release will contain four of the five songs that were recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wieslawski Brothers. The cover art was painted by Wes Benscoter, who previously worked with VADER on the De Profundis LP and has collaborated with such bands as Slayer, Kreator and Sinister. A new full Vader album will be recorded this year for a tentative autumn release.

"Thy Messenger" track listing:
1. Grand Deceiver
2. Litany
3. Emptiness
4. Despair
5. Steeler

The band commented: "We decided to record this EP because we knew that the full length new album won’t be released before the end of 2019. We’re back on the road in June and we plan to have some new tunes ready for our fans throughout the summer - before that we're due to start the recording process for the new VADER LP in April in England. For the time being we’ve named the album: "…And Then There Was Only Pain” and it should be completed by the end of May – when Thy Messenger EP is due to be released worldwide. The EP includes three new tracks - mostly really vicious and aggressive tracks, even for VADER. Emptiness' is more groovy in the main riff but really heavy at the end. All of the songs are fast and short, but pretty intense. We’ve also added a new version of our classic title track from Litany. It is 20 years since we recorded that album at the Red Studio. 'Litany' - as a song - and many more from that album have never been performed live. This album is still one of the fan favourites in the Vader discography and we will resurrect this whole record as part of our touring this autumn. Another bonus is the absolute classic cover of 'Steeler' which has always been one of my all time favorite Priest songs."
