VADER Release first single from their forthcoming EP




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

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.
