Everyone's favorite Polish death/thrash pioneers Vader are back with their ninth full-length album. Vader has been one of the most consistently amazing bands going for the last twenty years or so. Vader has never put out a bad album and still absolutely crushes live. This album is no exception.
This is a surprisingly dynamic album from the band. In previous works, Vader has mostly stuck to the same formula, brutal, take-no-prisoners death/thrash. While the general description has not changed much, the band has incorporated blazing guitar solo work complementing the riffs virtually non-stop. This has added a much more complex and melodic layer to the typical crushing riffs.
Beyond that, if you are at all familiar with Vader, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect with this release. The vocals and general musical formula have not changed. Vader sounds a lot more energetic this time out, which is really saying something for this band. They sound rejuvenated. This album could have passed for something they released in their early years.
