VADER recently parted ways with drummer Dariusz "Daray" Brzozowski and guitarist Maurycy "Mauser" Stefanowicz. According to the Meinl Cymbalsweb site, Daray will join the Norwegian black metal group DIMMU BORGIR while Mauser will concentrate on his UNSUN project, which will release its debut album, "The End Of Life", on September 22 via Century Media Records. Their rumored replacements in VADER are former LOST SOUL drummer Adam Sierzega and either Jacek Hiro from SCEPTIC or Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka from DECAPITATED on guitar.
VADER will enter the studio in March 2009 to begin recording its new album for a September 2009 release. An EP will precede the full-length CD in May.
