The band states: "We are so happy to give you all VADER’s new EP Thy Messenger. We recorded those five songs in January , when we supposed to record full length album. However, we changed some plans and dates , which delated LP till December 2019. Since we already had several songs ready, we decided to travel toHertz Studio again and record as independent release. We added re-make of a title track from album 'Litany' , which was recorded 20 years ago. This one became one of favorites among our fans and we plan to perform the whole album as part of live-set in Autumn this year. The other song is our version of 'Steeler' from legendary JUDAS PRIEST British Steel record and is our huge respect for their heritage in metal scene. In the meantime we’re working on the new album in Grindstone Studio in UK with Scott Atkins as producer and there is only some vocals and leads left to finish whole recordings. We will visit quite many festivals and our own shows in Summer and Autumn and we will bring songs from „Thy Messenger” on stage too. See ya soon and… STAY VADERIZED \m/".
Thy Messengerwas 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 later this year for a tentative autumn release.
