Polish extreme metallers VADER have issued the following update:
"VADER are currently finishing works on their 25-anniversary album. Piotr 'Peter' Wiwczarek (guitars, vocals) did some last corrections here and there and now Wieslawscy brothers (Hertz Studio) are hard at work to transform it into whole thing. We have been waiting quite a long for some intros and other tracks made by Siegmar (VESANIA) but they are ready finally! Only mastering and layout design left to finish the product. The album will be released in the end of May via Regain Records."
Commented Peter: "I may inform you officially about the title of anniversary VADER album, which is 'XXV'... like 25 years of extreme metal!! I can also show to you the cover of the album made by Jacek Wisniewski. The overall style is old VADER, like as well. That's because, what's included... what can I discover at the moment? Total time of the album (or better: double album) in regular version is 96 minutes of total massacre!!!! There will be also special edition with additional 16 minutes, which gives total time 112 minutes (!!!). The other bonus is DVD (yes!!!! The third record!!) with several never-released-before old live shots recorded from VHS tapes!!! I wished to inform you today, just to prepare You for what's coming, which songs from VADER's first album, 'The Ultimate Incantation', were chosen: 'Chaos', 'Vicious Circle', 'Crucified Ones', 'Dark Age' and 'Reign-Carrion'. More details soon.... By the way!!! Don't forget about our upcoming tours: in South America, which is gonna be last part of 'Impressions In Blood' world tour. In April in Europe we start a special tour, where You can hear mostly old hits from beginning of VADER's career."
