VADER: Video Interview Posted Online

German online magazine Whiskey-Soda.de conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek of Polish death metallers VADER prior to the band's September 24, 2009 concert in Berlin, Germany. Watch the 20-minute chat (in English) at this location.

As previously reported, VADER is seeking a U.S.-based session guitarist for the upcoming "Killfest 2010" tour with OVERKILL (headliner), GOD DETHRONED, WARBRINGER and EVILE. Interested parties can contact the group at [email protected]

Guitarist Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka, who has been touring and recording with VADER for the past year, recently reformed DECAPITATED and will be unavailable to take part in the trek.

For VADER's upcoming shows in Europe in January-February, Marek Pajak from the Polish band ESQARIAL will play second guitar.

VADER's new album, "Necropolis", sold around 1,130 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. 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.

"Necropolis" was recorded at Hertz studios in Bialystok, Poland with the Wieslawski Bros.. Tue Madsen, who previously worked with such bands as MOONSPELL, CATARACT, HEAVEN SHALL BURN and many more, mixed the CD at his Antfarm Studios in Denmark.

"Never Say My Name", the new video from VADER, was inspired by Patrick Graham's bestselling book "L'√Čvangile Selon Satan" (translation: "The Gospel According to Satan"). The clip tells an alternate story of the death of a messiah who curses humanity before his death on the cross and chooses life in Hell instead of Heaven. Perhaps because of its "controversial" title and content, this book is not available in the U.S. in English, but a French version can be ordered from Canada.
