VADER's new full length album entitled "Necropolis" will be released in Europe on August 21 through Nuclear Blast. The album will be available as a standard CD edition, digi pack (featuring two cover tracks and bonus DVD) edition and vinyl edition. The album artwork and the whole layout was made by Jacek Wisniewski (who also made cover arts for such albums as "Black To The Blind", "Litany", "Revelations" and many more).

"Necropolis" was recorded at Hertz Studio with Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski behind the helm. Then the album was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen at his Antfarm Studio (it's been band's first cooperation with a foreign producer since "The Ultimate Incantation").

Peter commented: "Tue Madsen did tremendous work! He modeled power on this album. It is not easy to make VADER sound heavy and clear. When I was listening to the master tape for a first time, I knew after the opening notes that 'Necropolis' is gonna be a BLAST indeed!!! Tue thinks the same, which makes me even more happy. No VADER album sounded so powerful without loss of all these details in the songs. I am impressed indeed!!! We will do video clips, of course! I'm not sure yet which songs are gonna be chosen. I have some 'evil stories' in my mind just waiting to be realized. Personally, I want to see a clip for 'Devilizer', which opens 'Necropolis'. The CD front cover was done by Jacek Wisniewski and explains what's inside the album... We summoned the Old Spirits again. The Unknown is awakened...again. 'Necropolis' is exactly like the picture seen on the front cover: solid, metal and evil, with many details, backgrounds and... hidden mysteries. There's also another thing that don't let me fall asleep since a few days. I mean very honest, positive, almost enthusiastic response from Nuclear Blast!"

Digi pack editions of the album will feature two cover songs: "Black Metal" of VENOM (with a guest appearance of Bart Krysiuk from HERMH), and "Fight Fire With Fire" of METALLICA (featuring Maciek Taff from ROOTWATER, BLACK RIVER). Also included is a bonus DVD featuring a part of a charity show for Covan (DECAPITATED) the band played on April 26 in Krakow. The show recorded by 5 cameras, dynamic editing and HD quality - all that made by Inbornmedia Company from Wroclaw.

I've been lukewarm on Vader for a while now, but hearing Tue Madsen is mixing will have me check them out. He's done awesome work with some of my favorite bands like The Haunted and Himsa.
