The official lyric video for the song "Prayer To The God Of War" from Polish death metal veterans VADER can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's ten-inch single, "Iron Times", which was released on August 12. It includes the following songs:
02. Prayer To The God Of War
01. Piesc I Stal
"Prayer To The God Of War" is also available digitally.
The cover artwork for "Iron Times" can be seen below. It was created by Joe Petagno, who previously worked with VADER on the "Go To Hell" EP.
VADER's Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek states: "There are two new tracks included [on 'Iron Times'] plus two bonus songs. All [are] available in beautiful folded ten-inch vinyl, for which Joe Petagno himself created the amazing cover."
VADER has pushed back the release date of its new studio album, "The Empire", to November 4 from the previously announced September 23 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2014's "Tibi Et Igni" was recorded at Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland with producers Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski.
In a 2014 interview with Radio Metal, Wiwczarek spoke about the fact that VADER has been in existence for more than thirty years. He said: "On one hand, I was a bit surprised at how fast time is flowing, because we've been an active band for so many years and I didn't feel that way. It feels like I just started a year ago or something. [Laughs] There was plenty of hard work but so many albums recorded, so many fans, so many countries visited, so I'm kind of proud that although we came from Poland and knew hard times, we still did it as if we couldn't be stopped, thanks to our passion. Actually, passion was a fuel for us to break through all these problems in the past. We just love what we do. We love music. We love metal. We did it for thirty years, and we still have fans who really want to see us and waiting for us every year. That's the best. That's the biggest success for us."
