“Here is the cover art for “The Empire” created by Joe Petagno himself !!! The whole design includes many details connected to the main theme influencing me before and during the process of recording: war and the “cold crisis” around us today… There are also links to couple of famous movie series, which influence the generations and erupt with violence, hate and “imperial tendencies”… Is this just a fantasy or maybe a sign of the 21st century generation ? You have to answer that in Your own… and the future will show us , how real that feeling is? Enjoy “The Empire” and …. join us on tour soon”

•Angels of Steel

VADER has played on BANGALORE OA Festival last Saturday. It was very first band’s appearance in India and KILLER MADNESS indeed !!! There are few links connected to that event below:

Interview for Metal Wani recorded few hours before VADER show
VADER continues work in Hertz studios. All guitars for “The Empire” are almost done!
“I am so excited with the whole work! New VADER sounds so much more aggressive and intense. I just can’t wait to show the album for our Fans and play them on stage live! It is really hard to compare the new records to any particular VADER album created in the past. There are definitely some “classic” elements in the songs but as a whole “The Empire” sounds more variously, tho’ still very, very brutal. The new VADER deals a lot about war and violence so are the titles: “Tempest”, “Iron Reign”, “Angels of Steel” or “Genosidius”.”
This time Peter was using His classical RAN “InVader” guitars and also old model Gibson Flying V. The amps were Mesa / Boogie Dual Recto (build 1993) , Marshall Plexi (from 70’s) , Randall WARHEAD (whatta name!!!) and EVH 50W.
