The longest living and most resilient tank of Poland’s death metal fleet has once again hoisted its flag, ready to overrun the world. The band recently fired their first warning shot with the ‘Iron Times’ EP, and now they’re building their own all-conquering empire with a new studio album.

The firepower of the polish legends has never ceased. Since 1983, founding member Piotr ‘Peter’ Wiwczarek and his crew have clad the world with brutal blasts, pumping rhythms and heavy iron riffs. ‘The Empire’ is no exception - a musical inferno made out of steel, burning with merciless intensity. Driven by aggression, Vader bring their typical dark tunes and morbid leads to the battlefield and once more underline their status as legends. Besides the record’s thrashier moments, the tank rolls at a steady pace always looking forward, straight to the front without compromises and without mercy.

Without doubt, ‘The Empire’ is one of Vader’s classics. Their 13th studio album will immediately find its place in metal history and will also prove that Vader don’t need to make their peace with the world, especially after writing more than 30 years’ worth of death metal history.

This globally conquering weapon was produced, mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski and completed within the secret bunkers of Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland.
