Polish extreme metal veterans VADER will be releasing a new EP titled 'Thy Messenger' on May 31st this year. Today, the band has revealed the lyric video for new track and digital single 'Grand Deceiver'. Check it out here: youtu.be/2a2zpFGUm-M



The band states: "We are so excited to give you new Vader song from our fresh record! GRAND DECEIVER is the opening track on Thy Messenger EP and perfect explanation of what you all may expect with the upcoming releases. Sharp as razor and brutal as Hell track is just an appetizer before the new Vader album to come. Chris of Nuclear Blast created this brilliant lyric video, which you can watch while waiting for Thy Messenger. Sit comfortably, play it LOUD and…ENJOY!!!"

Pre-order the EP here: nblast.de/VaderThyMessenger





The release will contain four of the five songs that were recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers. The cover art was painted by Wes Benscoter, who previously worked with VADER on the De Profundis LP and has collaborated with such bands as Slayer, Kreator and Sinister. A new full VADER album will be recorded this year for a tentative autumn release.

Thy Messenger track listing:
01. Grand Deceiver
02. Litany
03. Emptiness
04. Despair
05. Steeler

The band commented: "We decided to record this EP because we knew that the full length new album won’t be released before the end of 2019. We’re back on the road in June and we plan to have some new tunes ready for our fans throughout the summer - before that we're due to start the recording process for the new VADER LP in April in England. For the time being we’ve named the album: "…And Then There Was Only Pain” and it should be completed by the end of May – when Thy Messenger EP is due to be released worldwide. The EP includes three new tracks - mostly really vicious and aggressive tracks, even for VADER. Emptiness' is more groovy in the main riff but really heavy at the end. All of the songs are fast and short, but pretty intense. We’ve also added a new version of our classic title track from Litany. It is 20 years since we recorded that album at the Red Studio. 'Litany' - as a song - and many more from that album have never been performed live. This album is still one of the fan favourites in the VADERdiscography and we will resurrect this whole record as part of our touring this autumn. Another bonus is the absolute classic cover of 'Steeler' which has always been one of my all time favorite PRIEST songs."

VADER have one UK show currently scheduled for 2019 as follows :
June 29th – Hop Fest, Black Prince, Northampton

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
