Polish death metallers VADER have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Some of the band's equipment, including a bass guitar [photo#1, photo#2] belonging to Novy was stolen during VADER's recent visit in Istanbul, Turkey. The guitar represents not only a financial loss to the band, but mainly a hurtful, personal loss to Novy. If anyone has information regarding the stolen bass please, send an e-mail to [email protected] A very special reward is being offered!"
As previously reported, VADER will team up with SOLITUDE AETURNUS and ONSLAUGHT for a mini-festival on February 12, 2007 at the Stodola Club in Warsaw, Poland. All three bands' sets will be filmed for separate DVD releases, tentatively due next year. A fourth, as-yet-undisclosed group will also appear on the bill.
VADER will join forces with BRUTAL TRUTH for three "Extreme The Dojo Tour Vol. 17" Japanese dates in early March.
VADER will enter Hertz Studio in Poland in March 2007 to re-record 25 of the best songs from their entire discography for a 25th anniversary release, to be issued in 2008. The set will also include a DVD containing tons of bonus features, such as archival recordings, live shows, video clips and other special material. Jaroslaw Szubrycht, a well-known Polish journalist who recently finished a book about SLAYER, will write a VADER biography.
VADER's "Impressions in Blood" album entered the Polish national chart at position No. 8. The band's video for the song "Helleluyah (God Is Dead)" has been posted online at YouTube.com. The clip was shot with director Andrzej Wyrozebski, who is said to be one of the leading movie producers in Poland. Janusz Król (known from the Polish fantasy movie "Wiedzmin") was responsible for all special effects and the whole set design. Slawomir Panasewicz (who has worked on over 140 video clips!) was a cameraman.
"Impressions in Blood" was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland and features artwork by Greek artist Seth (ROTTING CHRIST, PARADISE LOST). A full-length MP3 of the song "Warlords" can be downloaded at this location.
