In early September, Polish extreme metal veterans VADER will kick off a tour of their home country in support of their upcoming album "Necropolis". The Polish leg of the tour will consist of approximately 12-13 shows in some of the country's biggest cities. Every concert will be preceded by a fan meet-and-greet at the EMPik chain of stores. The trek will be a continuation of VADER's Blitzkrieg tour formula from the previous years. At the end of September, VADER will invade the rest of the European continent as part of a two-month tour with Swedish black metallers MARDUK.
VADER recently made another pre-production/demo version of a new song, "Impure", available for free download at this location. The track was recorded in December 2008 at Hertz studios in Bialystok, Poland and is expected to appear on the band's next studio album, "Necropolis", tentatively due in August/September.
VADER will return to Hertz this week to begin recording "Necropolis" with the Wieslawski Bros. Tue Madsen, who previously worked with such bands as MOONSPELL, CATARACT, HEAVEN SHALL BURN and many more, will mix the CD at his Antfarm Studios in Denmark.
"Necropolis" will mark the recording debut of VADER's new lineup:
Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek (guitar, vocals)
Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka (DECAPITATED) (guitar)
Pawel Jaroszewicz (SOUL SNATCHER) (drums)
Famous Polish artist Jacek Wisniewski (who created the art for previous VADER albums "Black To The Blind", "Revelations" and "The Beast") will take care of the album artwork and design.
Commented Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek: "The title of the album — which is the very first VADER song ever — is chosen not by chance. It will be connected with recordings like 'De Profundis' or 'Litany' with themes of forgotten worlds, mythos or ancient powers still living in humans subconsciousness."
A previously released "Necropolis" demo track, "Rise Of The Undead", is available for download at this location.
