VADER: New Touring Lineup Announced

September 17, 2008

Polish death metal veterans VADER have announced their new touring lineup. It is as follows:

Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek (guitar, vocals)
Reyash (bass)
Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka (guitar)
Pawel Jaroszewicz (drums)

Commented the band: "Last Sunday at Progresja Club, Warsaw, we had drummers audition. Earlier, actually just after the anniversary gig we had some talks with a few guitarists about possibilities of joining the band. And now we are ready to announce our new touring line up. The new drummer is 22-year-old Pawel Jaroszewicz from Lublin, who previously played in not-so-well-known act SOUL SNATCHER. He also did some session drumming for HELL-BORN and CRIONICS (watch him playing with SOUL SNATCHER below). We must admit the level for this audition was much higher than a few years ago, when we were looking for Doc's successor. We received many submissions from all over the world. However, we decided to focus on Polish drummers (due to lack of time, we have to prepare at least one-hour set for the upcoming shows, so we need a very good communication). Finally, we chose three drummers and checked their skills in such songs as 'Dark Age', 'Silent Empire', 'Carnal' or 'Sothis'. Pawel 'Paul' Jaroszewicz won the competition and he will appear with the band on the upcoming tours. Guitar player, the one who will replace Mauser is Waclaw Kieltyka, known more as Vogg from DECAPITATED! You know this guy and what he achieved with his band very well. Having him in VADER it's definitely a good thing. Try to imagine VADER on live with Vogg on second guitar, it's definitely going to be an unstoppable war machine! Both Paul and Vogg will play with VADER as session musicians. We still haven't decided who would join VADER as permament members. There are a variety of options available, both on drummer and guitarist vacancy. There's no hurry, we want to prepare everything very carefully. Time shall tell..."

VADER's Scandinavian tour with GRAVE, ZONARIA and GILLA BRUJA will kick off on October 17 in Vilnius and will runs through November 1 in Aarhus. The "Winterfest 2009" tour with DEICIDE, SAMAEL, ZONARIA, DEVIAN and ARTISIAN starts on January 9 and wraps on January 22. In the meantime, the pre-production for VADER's next album is scheduled for December at Poland's Hertz Studio. The recording session is planned for February/March, while the mixing and mastering will take place in April/May. "We are going to entrust the production of this album to an extremely experienced and well-known producer," the band said. "We need a guy who would be able to give VADER a new splendor. After 25 years, the machine should be well-lubricated and polished hehe... Of course, good producers cost a lot of money and VADER is still an underground act, but we have some ideas... We're also looking for some new graphic designers, photographers and so on. The new album will be entitled 'Necropolis'. Hoping to get better support from our record label than we've received so far."
