There are tour packages that literally scream "this is f****n` massive!!!" before said tour even kicks off! This is definitely such a case - a colossal line up that will beam lovers of extreme music to the seven heavens. German thrash metal giants KREATOR are leading the true "hordes of chaos" throughout Europe as headliners, and with them a real gourmet selection of bands will hit the road...
With the release of "Endless Pain", they established Germany as a thrash nation in 1985 almost single-handedly and continued throughout the following years to keep a whole subgenre fresh via their own "Violent Revolution"! In 2012, KREATOR released the classy and ultimately heavy "Phantom Antichrist" which brought the band superb chart entries and sold-out venues all over the planet. This triumphant march has recently been immortalized in shape of the live package "Dying Alive". Frontman and icon Mille Petrozza comments: "A lot of our European fans voiced their discontent over the fact that the band hardly does European club tours - apart from our festival shows. In 2013 we were mainly busy playing for our fans overseas. We want to change this now. In time for the reissues of "ENDLESS PAIN", "PLEASURE TO KILL" and "EXTREME AGGRESSION" in all kinds of formats - finally on vinyl again too - we`ll end the PHANTOM ANTICHRIST tour cycle in Europe with a massive string of shows. This will be your last chance to see KREATOR live in clubs for quite a while, because we`ll be busy working on a new album in 2015 and only play carefully selected shows. Right now we`re working on a new multimedia stage show and we`ll also have a bunch of surprises in the setlist. Our friends of ARCH ENEMY are part of the trek to present their new album "War Eternal", and so will VADER and our old companions SODOM. This tour will be KILLER!!!"
ARCH ENEMY have just injected some fresh blood into their ranks: growler extraordinaire Angela Gossow has been replaced by the equally powerful Alissa White-Gluz! Have no fear, dear fans - the band that brought us one melodic death metal anthem after the other with landmark releases such as "Rise Of The Tyrant" (2007) and "Khaos Legions" (2011) is stronger than ever. Just check out the brand new video for "War Eternal": a masterful combination of raw shredding and lush melody lines only ARCH ENEMY could pull off in such an elegant fashion! The full album - also entitled "War Eternal" - will be upon us June 2014. ARCH ENEMY's founder, guitarist/chief-songwriter Michael Amott comments: "Yes, what a great tour! We've wanted to tour with KREATOR for the last ten years and now it's finally happening! KREATOR was one of the bands that inspired me to play faster and harder when I grew up and I'm happy to call Mille Petrozza a friend for quite a few years now. This tour is a real metal onslaught, the kind of show you don't want to miss. We're excited as hell to be a part of it and looking forward to showing the fans the damage that the re-energized ARCH ENEMY is capable of in 2014!"
Teutonic thrash legends SODOM celebrated their 30th anniversary last year - amongst others on stage with KREATOR at the BEASTIVAL. At the same time they unleashed their fourteenth album "Epitome Of Torture": a love letter to the old school sound and at the same time a fresh shredding feast that proved the status of these pioneers once and for all! Party hard with classic cuts such as 'Ausgebombt' or 'Outbreak Of Evil' together with new skull-crushing anthems!
They are the ultimate legends of Polish death metal: VADER! Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek and his henchmen play brutal old school death metal like there was no tomorrow - and they have ever since 1983! On top of that, VADER are one of the hardest working bands around ( = always on tour) and will soon prove with "Tibi Et Igni" (release date: May 30) that they are truly part of the extreme metal elite.
This brilliant and brutal package will kick things of at Tilburg, Holland on December 4, and you should regularly visit www.rtn-touring.com and www.hardticket.eu for more info, news and tickets!

It was really worth waiting for this monumental work. More details...soon \m/

The beginning of "Back To The Black Tour 2013" is just tremendous! Despite snow and cold we had full capacity shows in Berlin, Jena and Groningen. Gigs in Essen, Hamburg and Kassel were sold out! It_s an awesome prelude to what_s ahead of us. Each night panzer division VADER takes no prisoners! The new program of entire "Black To The Blind" and "Sothis" albums has met an particularly warm reception. ABORTED raze everything to the ground with their brutal grind death metal and supporting bands brilliantly play the role of warm-ups. We have great fun on tour and the audiences give their best! Next shows ahead, we_ll give more news soon!
"First week of the European part of Back to the Black tour is behind us. During this time we visited clubs in Germany and the Netherlands. The shows emanate tremendous energy and the turnout surprised us all! Essen, Hamburg and Kassel were sold out! Each show is a true massacre! The atmosphere on tour is great and the time spent with our dear friends from ABORTED and BONDED BY BLOOD will stay long in our memories. We have next two weeks of total destruction ahead. We_ll play in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy and the last week is saved for the British Isles. I want to highlight that this tour is fully devoted to refreshing the entire albums of "Sothis" and "Black To The Blind"...but not only! In the mid-April we will set for the second part of Back to the Black tour. We_ll move towards Scandinavian countries, the Balkans and Spain.

Autumn is here...but winter is getting closer and closer. As you already know, we've been preparing many surprises for this period! After "Glosy z Otchlani (De Profundis 1995-2010)" , VADER will play another tour refreshing two very important albums in the band's career: "Sothis" and "Black to the Blind". We will play all material from these albums in a "raw" version, kept in the style of the 90s. Some of the songs have NEVER been played live, some of them appeared in a concert set only several times. The idea of "Back to the Black" tour is to reach the cities that weren't included in "Blitzkrieg VI" in March this year. We prepared a 70-minute set - like this you will get not only the abovementioned albums but also many other songs from different releases. There will be surprises as well! The set is competely different from the one performed during the March tour. Therefore I invite ALL of you, those present on Blitzkrieg as well!!! We prepared many unique gadgets available only on this tour. There will be vinyl versions of "Sothis" and "Black to the Blind" released in a very limited number by Night Of The Vinyl Dead Rec. It's the first release of this kind. The albums will be remastered and released with a comprehensive History Book reminding the old times, the band and people connected with it vs the year 2012. We prepared a tour book with VADER pictures promoting "Welcome to the Morbid Reich" as well. There will also be t-shirts, hoodies, re-editions of designs from the 90s and...something completely new: handmade Morbid Reich chest from...Tibet!!! And many more. We want these shows, organised for the Maniacs of old good times, to leave an unforgettable impression on all of you! The stars are shining with the bloody light and turn into the Darkness... The winter is coming!!! Await us \m/ - Peter & Vader

Vader - News on Blitzkrieg VI|
First of all we would like to wish you all happy New Metal Year 2012! We hope to meet you on our shows, both in Poland and around the world. We have some news about changes of a few venues. Due to some problems with local authorities we decided to change the venue in Cracov. We will play in Fabryka club and our special guest will be SCEPTIC. The show is organized by United Vision agency. Any information on this gig you will find on www.unitedvisions.pl and www.myspace.com/unitedvisionsgigs. Another change will be applied in Bialystok, we're moving to Hala Weglowa. We are still waiting for a new place in Bydgoszcz owing to problems of a local promoter with local authorities. The show won't take place in Astoria for sure. We will get confirmation soon. The whole tour is not endangered; we're just trying to be one step before still hostile local authorities in some cities. We are preparing some shows in smaller towns as well and we hope to have all set pretty soon. A series of such concerts will take place in the summer season.

3 Polish bands on tour with VADER!|
We are glad to present Polish bands that will accompany the Blitzkrieg VI tour. First one will be technical death metal band CALM HATCHERY promoting its newest album "Sacrilege of Humanity" (Selfmadegod Records). Another band to join us is battle-hardened THE SIXPOUNDER. Its vocalist took part in a recent edition of a popular TV talent show "The Voice of Poland" (TVP2). The band will promote its debut album "Going To Hell? Permission Granted". The third band supporting VADER during Blitzkrieg VI is a finalist of another TV show - "Must Be The Music" (Polsat) - ERIS IS MY HOMEGIRL. They are very young but judging by what we could see in TV - they have huge load of energy and vital powers. They are currently working on their debut album. The Polish lineup is completed by Belgian extreme death metal RESISTANCE promoting their upcoming but already well-reviewed album "To Judge and Enslave" (H.M.B. Productions). By the look of this lineup, we are taking a real explosive mixture on board. We hope that you like the bands. And we ourselves are looking forward to the first shows of Polish new blood. See you there! Stay VADERized!

Blitzkrieg VI in March 2012!|
We kick off with another edition of Blitzkrieg! This time we play in March. We will visit all major cities in our country and the smaller towns will be conquered in summer season. What's on tour? Most importantly, VADER will present new material in a new set prepared specially for the tour in Poland! Peter & co. promised many surprises. There will also be amazing scenography and well-supplied merch stand where you will find T-shirts, hoodies, CDs and gadgets prepared for this tour.
The sixth edition of Blitzkrieg will also be a chance to present young bands from Poland and one from the West. This time we gamble on the Polish youth and our dear friends from Belgium - RESISTANCE.

Feel invited for the Fest...Brothers and Sisters...

GORGOROTH and VADER won't play in Sofia (Bulgaria)!|
We are disappointed to inform that the show in Sofia won't take place! Once again, unfortunately, a local promoter Most Of Evil failed our expectations. He proved to be unprofessional and showed no respect whatsoever to us as organizer, bands and Fans in Sofia. Most Of Evil represented by Gani Kurshumov didn't fulfill the contract. Our crew and bands arrived to Sofia according to the plan, covering a distance of hundreds of kilometers from Cluj Napoca in Romania. Sorry to say, it occurred that there was no organizer on the spot, neither any person responsible for the show, nor any food prepared.
After few hours of waiting and phoning, the organizer turned up at the club stating that he had no money to pay for the concert, although the presale was 500 tickets, and that he could pay us next week! It's not the first time that Most Of Evil lowered the salary and asked for delayed payment. So far we had been agreeing on our contracts alterations hoping that similar situations won't happen in the future again. Nevertheless, this time we had to act differently. Most Of Evil still didn't account with us for the September show of SAMAEL / MELECHESH / KEEP OF KALESSIN. Today's few-hour delay, lack of catering and respect for us and the bands made us take a decision of not playing the concert. Thereby we expressed our utter disapproval and disappointment with such behaviour and the lack of professionalism of the promoter. For the time being we lost our trust in Most Of Evil.
We would like to express our deepest apologies to all Fans who showed up for the concert and we hope that you understand our decision. On our part, we promise to organize a similar show with GORGOROTH / VADER and VALKYRJA soon, with another promoter this time. We would like to invite all responsible people who would like to cooperate with us!

Vader - British land conquered!|
Vader Commando has already left the British land, leaving only the burning ashes of Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, London, Bristol and Plymouth. The evidence in the case is interrogation of the band's drummer - James, run in The Masque club (Liverpool). The results you can see here. There is also an eyewitness testimony of massacre in the Underworld club in London (see here) and video material from London and Liverpool. Currently, the troops are heading towards the Benelux.

Welcome VaderManiacs!!! |
Just a few days ago we returned from the exotic Far East. We had undisputed pleasure of playing a few gigs in Japan and - for the first time in the band's history - in Nepal!!! We've already been several times in Japan and since the memorable show in Tokyo, where we recorded "Live in Japan", we've always had a warm reception. However, what happened there this time went beyond our wildest dreams!!! We gave two shows: first within Extreme Dojo Tour festival and the second one was just our own concert. On both of them venues were filled to capacity with fans hungry for extreme metal! There have never been such shows in Tokyo before! \m/
From the Land of the Rising Sun we flew straight to the capital city of Nepal. Right at the airport we were welcomed by an impressive group of fans with Vader banners! We spent a few days in Kathmandu visiting - thanks to Andy and Bikrant - wonderful places full of Energy and Cult. The show we gave on a sports stadium in the capital got great reception from fans and local press. Over 4000 of watching us people welcomed us almost as kings! JAI NEPAL!!! Memories are still fresh in our minds... And now the time has come for a main course: first presentation of "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" on the good old continent. On Nov 1st in Berlin we kick off the 40-concert tour together woth GORGOROTH!!! See you there!

The Sign Of Hell Tour 2011 - The tour is coming closer!|
On November 1st, the Day o the Dead, we start a European tour o GORGOROTH and VADER! It will be one of the most brutal tours at the end of this year! Both bands will play together for the first time, it's going to be one Hell! GORGOROTH are well known for their extreme shows and VADER prepared real feast promoting their newest album "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" (Nuclear Blast) which got wonderful reception so far! The tour will host some guest bands as well, i.e. VALKYRJA (Metal Blade revelation) and ADIMIRON - a representative of Italian metal scene. Part of the tour will be joined by THE SICKENING from Norway, VERMIN from Holland, EUFOBIA from Bulgaria and a few other bands playing local gigs. Full schedule and information on bands available on our website.

VADER in Japan and Nepal!|
Our death metal commando is currently out on their concert tour in Japan and Nepal!
Today Japan starts its 10th Anniversary Series - Extreme The Dojo Vol.28 within which VADER will give 3 shows in Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo. They will be joined by WATAIN and WITCHERY. At the end of their stay VADER will play an additional gig in Tokyo without the aforementioned bands. The whole touring schedule in the tourdates section.
"Hail from Nagoya City! We arrived safe and sound. Japan, as always, made a huge impression on us. It seems that this country lives in its own pace but I've already got used to it. For now, we just checked into a hotel and tonight we're in for our first show! It's been some time since our last visit to Japan and the series of concerts within Extreme The Dojo is going to be promising as Hell! We will share a stage with WATAIN for the first time and I'll watch with pleasure guys from WITCHERY. Our crew is fine. Young soldiers: Halik, Marek and James can't wait for the show but also for hanging out in the city, sighsteeing and trying some local food! We all wait to blast off VADER's cannons!" (Peter/VADER)
After shows in Japan the band will make their way to Nepal! Yes, exactly, to Himalayas! It's their first visit in this corner of the world. The show itself is going to be interesting not only due to the height but also because it will be a first such show in this place since many years! VADER will play a gig on Silence Festival in Jawalakhel / Lalitpur in Nepal. The band will headline the festival which will also include concerts of local bands.
"Just mind-blowing! Never did I expect that we'll get a chance to present our dark music in such a place! I just can't believe it right now, I have to land there to see it's true! A promoter of the show invited us to stay for a couple of days to get accustomed to the immense height. We will do our best to adjust our bodies to Himalaya's altitude. Fortunately, we don't have to climb the highest peak to give the show (laugh)! We are to perform on a football pitch, I'm really curious what it will be like. All we're in for is a great unknown for us, including music equipment, local customs and the way we will feel. But we've already played in Syberia, we'll cope with Nepal! Stay VADERized! More about this excursion soon!" (Peter/VADER)

Vader - new album trailer online!|
On July 22th, at 1:00 a.m., the Polish death metal legend VADER uploaded their first trailer for the upcoming masterpiece "Welcome To The Morbid Reich". Band-Mastermind Peter is talking about the recording and the cover artwork of this new record.
The LP's trailer can be watched here.
The first feedback from press on "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" has also been simply great:
"Vader are the kind of band that simply can't put out a bad album" - Olivier 'Zoltar' Badin, Terrorizer (UK)
"How more morbid can a band be? Fast, aggressive, sick metal, from the depths of hell. The Polish deathsters once again take no prisoners" - Sakis Fragos, ROCK HARD Greece
"Impressive and devastating extreme metal with the unique voice of Peter over all... blasting!" - Ivan Gaudenzi, Metal Maniac Magazine Italy
"Welcome To The Morbid Reich" klingt so, wie ein VADER-Album klingen muss - aber doch wieder ein bisschen anders, als seine Vorgänger: Nicht experimentell, nicht grundlegend anders, einfach nur schnell, geil, fett - und nach VADER." - Stephan Möller, metal.de
You will be holding in your hands "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" on August 12th. It was recorded in Hertz Studio in Bialystok.
In the spring 2011 the band was left by the bass player Tomasz "Reyash" Rejek and the drummer Paweł "Paul" Jaroszewicz. Their places were took over by Hal (known from Dead Infection, Hermh, Abused Majesty) and a first foreigner in Vader's line-up - 21-year-old Englishman James Stewart (ex-Divine Chaos). However, the drums for the album were still recorded by Paul.
The coverart was made by Zbigniew Bielak.

Vader - before release!|
The works on the newest album are finished. We proudly present to you a cover artwork for Vader's masterpiece "Welcome To The Morbid Reich". Here are a few words from the cover's author, Zbigniew Bielak (artworks for Watain or Destroyer 666 to name just a few):
"To follow closely on Lars von Trier's spectacular nazi gaffe in Cannes, I'd say that the new Vader cover artwork gives a subtle hint of what would happen if the good old Cthulhu would be contracted to erect a pyramid for Thule... Well, who knows what they were really doing in subterranean galleries of Harz? One thing is certain - propelled by the spirit of most Ancient Ones, Vader indeed stand tall as death metal's Wunderwaffe, and I hope the cover fits well in their armory of morbid imagination!"
The album will be released in Europe on August 13th by Nuclear Blast Records. Street date for USA is expected to be September 13th.
Below you will find a complete tracklist of the album "Welcome To The Morbid Reich":
1. "Ultima Thule"
2. "Return To The Morbid Reich"
3. "The Black Eye"
4. "Come And See My Sacrifice"
5. "Only Hell Knows"
6. "I Am Who Feasts Upon Your Soul"
7. "Don't Rip The Beast's Heart Out"
8. "I Had A Dream..."

10. "Decapitated Saints"
11. "They Are Coming..."

Stated Promoter Yishai Swearts of Raven Music:
"When I first heard VADER's demo tape, many many years ago, I knew that the band will grow to be one the main forces in extreme metal, I follow the band since the beginning and with fantastic albums as "Litany" "Black To The Blind" "De Profundis" etc they became what I knew they will - A Top Death Metal act, without betraying the style, without lose faith, always stick to their guns.
It was VADER latest album "Necropolis" that finally moved me to invite the band again to Israel, to play for the many extreme metal fans who are looking forward to bang heads to the massive VADER artillery.
I am proud to invite and promote a band with agenda, with an honest belief, and well respected roots, I am sure both the Israeli fans, and VADER will have a night to remember !"

Vader: studio report #3|
The process of creation "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" has run smoothly so far and according to the plan. The report presents the next step in work on Vader's new album. Below you can read a few sentences from Pajak about his impressions on the work progress in the studio. The fourth part of the report next week! \m/
"A few days ago my first visit to Hertz Studio came to an end. The works went quite undisturbed. I recorded my three songs plus the solo parts. I also managed to record the solo parts for Peter's tracks and some guitar parts to the bonus songs. Currently we're working on the remaining tracks and get down to recording the bass parts. So far I'm quite pleased with the results of work. I really like the initial sounding of instruments and I know that it's only the beginning. Wieslawcy Bros are doing a marvellous job. They can also be very motivating and suggesting interesting solutions sometimes. We're about to finish the rest of the material soon. Then Peter will record his vocal parts and the beginning of May is the time for mixes and mastering. Houk!"

Vader: studio report #1 - the drum session|
Last week we ended the drums recording session for the newest album. Below are Pawel's personal impressions:
"Just the day before yesterday we finished recording drums for the new Vader's album - "Welcome to the Morbid Reich". Our revisit in the Hertz Studio proceeded undisturbed and once again brothers Wieslawski proved to be professionals to the core.
We started our session showing up in the studio on March 14th, at 9 p.m. after a few hours' drive on our perfect Polish roads with a trailer full of gear - I really recommend it! J This day we only managed to do the load-in and hit the sack - as we were dead on our feet. The real session started the next day with setting up the drums, changing the skins, placing microphones and tuning the drums.Then, together with Slawek and Wojtek, we were adjusting the sound looking for "this is it" in each element of the set. It lasted for the whole day and a half but it was definitely worth it. The sound of the drums just kicks asses! For the next few days the schedule of work was practically the same - breakfast, setting the recording plan for the day, preparing a pilot for the drums, recording, monitoring plus corrections if needed, recording, supper and going to bed J We also went for some sightseeing with Bartek Krysiuk from Hermh - who knows this guy, knows what followed.
For 7 days we recorded 9 new songs, 2 covers and a remake of veeeeeery old Vader's track. The results of our work will be available probably in August. For now, look forward to the studio reports and the pictures from the further recording of "WTTMR".
Quite recently I've also become the official endorser of Paiste's cymbals. These are definitely the best sounding cymbals on the marketand they were my wildest dream since I started to play the drums. I'm proud that now I can join thePaiste family. Of course you will hear them on the newest Vader album."
Video studio report #1 - the drum session is here

Changes and the new opening!|
New musicians, some changes and, hopefully, new great news - hence the new opening in the band. The beginning of the year was marked with Peter's decision about line-up reshuffle - he thanked Reyash for two-years' cooperation. The band and Reyash parted their ways because the latter recently failed on many fields. The main reason for this news is also his statement about reasons for leaving the band which are not true. Here's Peter's explanation on the situation:
"Hail to all Vadermaniax!!! I decided to write this - a little bit untimely - news to correct Reyash's official stance on leaving the band on Blabbermouth. I decided to thank Reyash for over two-year's cooperation in January 2011 and it was solely my decision. The decision was made on his recent behaviour only and definitely not due to his "personal reasons". Reyash is a great mate BUT this isn't enough to be the part of VADER.
What's funny is that my expectations are really not that high as it might seem from the personal changes in the band throughout the recent years. VADER is appreciated by YOU just because of us keeping the style, sincerity and quality REGARDLESS the so-called public opinion. Reyash knew that he was to play till the end of the season (promotion of "Necropolis") and his staying in the band depended exclusively on his work during the past two years. I can't understand his trying to give a good account of himself in this situation, the more so because it is insincere.
Nevertheless, me and all people contributing to the presence of VADER Commando wish Reyash success, all the best and satisfaction from his work! One should keep good memories only. We're also glad that after Reyash's official statement appeared, we were contacted by lots of bass players willing to join the band, most of them from abroad. However, the decision about who will replace Tomek was made a few weeks ago. We invited Hal (Hermh, Dead Infection, Abused Majesty). This line-up will be seen on stage since April."
Another change was made behind the drums. Due to family matters Pawel decided to leave the band. He is, however, recording the new album with us and will support VADER on the already settled gigs, festivals and tours in May, June and July. His natural successor became very talented 21-year-old English musician James Stewart playing in DIVINE CHAOS. Under this link (http://www.myspace.com/divinechaosband) you can watch him in action when recording the album for his band. James will join VADER in summer season, we don't know yet since which concert.
The choice was obvious, we know James from one of the VADER tours, his band supported us on several gigs. We gave him an assignment to do; he prepared some tracks, presented them on the video and became the new member of our crew! So simple, isn't it? He's a very young, talented and disciplined musician. He belongs to the new wave artists - ambitious, exquisite in their technique, keeping track of the technical novelties. At the same time he's a nice guy, drinking his tea with milk (brrrr!) and craving for success. I believe in this guy! (Mariusz Kmiołek - Massive Music Management)

This Monday we started new recordings in Hertz Studios in Bialystok. We spent the whole afternoon being setting up drum kit, testing new skins and cymbals.

We plan to record 9-10 fresh songs and 3 bonus pieces: redux of one old Vader classic (which is gonna be added to refreshed life set for Summer) and 2 cover songs (those will be kinda surprise for many for sure...).

Time for new album!|
The band is about to prepare for recording of their newest studio album "Welcome To The Morbid Reich". Recording will take place in Hertz Studio again (Bialystok - Polska) from March 15th to April 10th, 2011. Mix and mastering in May, 2011. As Peter announced, he plans to record 10-11 tracks plus 2 bonuses for special editions of the album. As usual, you will have a chance to track the process of recording the album in a special studio report on the band's website. The new album will be followed by a new photo session and a video clip. The band will make the decision on whom to work with at the end of March. "For a long time I've been thinking about new tracks and the album concept; more and more things start to be clear. For the most part I'd like Spider (Marek Pajak - guitars) to take part in the process of album creation. I also have in mind relating to the good old times with a new layout for the album.
I met with Zbyszek Bielak, a very talented artist, who will design the new layout, merchandise and scenic elements. Zbyszek has already worked with such bands as Watain, Absu, Behemoth... The new album will mainly focus on the Morbid Reich feeling combined with brutal riffs and tempo of the previous albums. We also have a surprise for our devoted fans, we're going to come back to our old logo." (Peter-VADER)
Draft titles of a few tracks: "Lords of Thorns", "I Am Who Feast Upon Your Souls", "Only Hell Knows", "Return to the Morbid Reich", "I Had A Dream". We will have a chance to listen to 1 or 2 tracks on VADER concerts and summer festivals, as Peter announced. This year's Blitzkrieg will start a bit later, probably in October and VADER will play a completely new set!
