Vader announce new EP ”Thy Messenger”

Polish extreme metal veterans Vader announce that they will release a new EP titled “Thy Messenger” on May 31st this year. The effort will contain four of the five songs that were recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers. The cover art was painted by Wes Benscoter, who previously worked with Vader on the “De Profundis” LP. A new full Vader album will be recorded later this year for a tentative autumn release.

The band comments: “The EP includes three new tracks – mostly really vicious and aggressive tracks, even for Vader. “Emptiness” is more groovy in the main riff but really heavy at the end. All the songs are fast and short, but pretty intense, I guess. We’ve also added a new version of our classic title track from “Litany”. It is 20 years since we recorded that album at the Red Studio. “Litany” – as a song – and many more from that album have never been performed live. This album is still one of the fan favourites in the Vader discography and in 2019 we will resurrect this whole record as part of our live shows this autumn. Another bonus is the absolute classic cover of “Steeler”, which was always one of my all time favorite Priest songs.”

Vader’s latest studio album, “The Empire”, was released in November 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming releases.
