Speed and power are back as the driving factors in VADER’s fiendish yet proficient death metal!

Never one to rest or relax, VADER have done it all over the course of their 37-year history. From playing super-aggressive thrash under the watchful eye of Communist Poland to touring the globe and enjoying a near-maniacal fanbase, there’s no stopping the Piotr ‘Peter’ Wiwczarek-led outfit.

The band released a new single from the new album, as well as premiering the official video for ‘Into Oblivion‘. Check it out below;

Humanity never learns from its lessons,” says Wiwczarek. “I feel tensions continuing to rise around the world. People have forgotten about true pain, from a bigger picture standpoint. Generationally, the new generation doesn’t respect the old, and I’d challenge they don’t even respect themselves.

Our everyday lives are on TV, so there’s no soul left. Everything’s empty. I think technology is also sucking the humanity out of us. There are more lonely people now than ever before, and yet we’re supposed to be connected together by technology. It’s madness! That’s where the title Solitude in Madness came from, actually. Of course, I approach these topics in a very Vader way. I love telling stories and expressing myself through those stories.“

Pre-order the album on a variety of formats here.
