VADER Frontman Offers Update On DVD, Upcoming Anniversary Album

VADER frontman Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek has issued the following update:

"[As you may have] already noticed, there is new DVD [being] released soon. The show was recorded in the club Stodola in Warsaw [in February 2007]. That's [where] the title came from: '...And Blood Was Shed in Warsaw'. The main part of the DVD are the songs from our last releases, BUT... there are some rarities on this material like 'Sword of the Witcher'! What the hell is that? There's CD project RED who work on PC games and who asked us to compose a song, which is gonna be kinda 'trailer song' for their upcoming game. The title of the game is 'The Witcher' and this is pretty fresh RTS in the fantastic, filled with brutality and magic world of the Witcher (from the Sapkowski novels). More than awsome graphics are made by world famous Mr. Baginski (first prize... for 'Cathedral') and give the game revolutionary character indeed! We said 'Yes!' and recorded the song in May in Hertz Studio. 'The Sword of the Witcher' is absolutely different piece of music compared to previous VADER works but still metal —full of fire, beasts, warriors and... blood!!! We were but afraid that because of many instruments recorded there will be a problem to play this song live. However, thanks to new technology we are able to do it and we plan to add this Witcher song to the set list on the upcoming Blitzkrieg IV-2 [tour].

"On July 10 in Bolkov Castle we [shot] a video clip [for] 'Sword of the Witcher' with cooperation [of] Intermedia. There are the same guys who were working on 'Hellelujah!!!!' video clip recently... This new picture will be available on DVD as well. We didn't have too much time to work with this clip, but...it's always nice to see something so different than 'This is the War' or just mentioned 'Hellelujah!!!' Fire, steel and magic!!

"What else? In few days we finalize recordings of the aniversary album entitled 'XXV'. This one will include 25 VADER hits from early days re-recorded again. There will be some rarities on the limited special edition as well... We're also practicing with new set for the Blitz' IV/2...You know the bands already so I can give you some information, that there'll be different set in the cities where we played in last year and the new places on tour. We start with some shows in Russia in the middle of September."

VADER recently posted an MP3 audio file from their upcoming "…And Blood Was Shed In Warsaw" DVD. Check out the songs "Helleluyah!!! (God Is Dead)" and "Warlords" at this location.

VADER's third DVD, "…And Blood Was Shed In Warsaw" will be released in October via Metal Mind Productions. The DVD will feature footage from the band's February 12, 2007 concert at Stodola Club in Waraw, documenting the final stop of the group's tour in support of their latest album, "Impressions in Blood". The show was filmed with seven cameras and includes a guest appearance by Orion, a member of two other great Polish metal acts: VESANIA and BEHEMOTH.

The DVD is scheduled for release on October 15 in Europe and November 5 in USA (via MVD). It will also include: a fully animated menu, band bio, discography, interview with frontman Peter, the brand new video clip "Sword of the Witcher" (taken from the forthcoming RPG game "The Witcher"), desktop images, photo gallery, weblinks, and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. "And Blood Was Shed In Warsaw" DVD will be also available in a special DVD+CD limited swing case edition!
