Guitarist/vocalist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek of the Polish death metal veterans VADER has issued the following update:
"What's new in VADER? You know for sure about all the personal changes in line up. We just finished two-weeks tour in Baltic States and Scandinavia with GRAVE, ZONARIA and ZABBADIAH CROWS, which was 'baptism in fire' for new VADER, which is now:
Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek (guitar, vocals)
Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka (DECAPITATED) (guitar)
Pawel Jaroszewicz (SOUL SNATCHER) (drums)
"Since the first shows in Lithuania and Latvia the new members show, how passion and feeling are important to perform metal on stage! Personally, it was like pumping fresh blood into my veins... I was feeling like we were on VADER's first tour. With the same lineup we'll hit again in January with DEICIDE, SAMAEL and DEVIAN. To play with the friends form yet early '90s must be something unholy!!!! IT WILL BE SPECIALL!!!!
"We open new chapter in VADER's history in December: 'Necropolis'! In Hertz Studios, we're gonna record 4-5 song demo for the upcoming new full-length. This is nothing but checking out new sounds and different way of work in studio. It's not gonna be official, though we'll put a song on our site for you to listen to. The ultimate recordings are booked for March 2009 and 'Necropolis' will be produced by Tue Madsen (who previously worked with such bands as MOONSPELL, HATESPHERE, THE HAUNTED, GOREFEST, HEAVEN SHALL BURN and many more) in Anfarm Studio in Denmark. The title of the album — which is the very first VADER's song ever — is chosen not by chance. It will be connected with recordings like 'De Profundis' or 'Litany' with themes of forgotten worlds, mythos or ancient powers still living in humans subconsciousness. Just mentioned few titles: 'Devour', 'Dark Heart' or 'Forgotten' (all written by Harry Maat). Pawel Frelik — the Voice of Truth in the band — is also gonna put some lines on the album... We'd like to change 'Necropolis' designs as well making the 'overall view' in old style of metal. Of course, I'll keep informing you about the progress. As I promised....
"Remember: what won't kill you will make you stronger... VADER will strike again soon!!"
