VADER Bassist Quits

Bassist Tomasz "Reyash" Rejek has left Polish death metal veterans VADER. He has released the following statement on the matter:

"Ave! After over two years of cooperation, I've decided to quit VADER due to personal reasons. I'd like to thank my bandmates for hundreds of gigs played together, I wish you all the best. At the same time I'd like to inform that I shall continue my music adventure along with my bands CHRIST AGONY, SUPREME LORD and WITCHMASTER. See you in Hell."

Reyash can be heard on VADER's most recent studio album, "Necropolis", which came out in 2009 and sold around 1,130 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 19 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

VADER will spend four weeks at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland starting on March 15 recording its new album, "Welcome To The Morbid Reich". The band will lay down a total of 12 or 13 songs for the CD, which will be mixed and mastered in May for a tentative late 2011 release. Working songtitles set to appear on the effort include "Lords of Thorns", "I Am Who Feast Upon Your Souls", "Only Hell Knows", "Return to the Morbid Reich" and "I Had A Dream".
VADER recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of its classic second album, "De Profundis", by performing the LP in its entirety. Piotr stated, "[The fans'] response for this idea was more than great so we decided to repeat this in the future with other VADER titles, too."
