“The latest album by Polish death metal legends VADER is a tour de force of straight-up, balls to the wall, blasting death metal. It’s crushingly heavy, lightning fast, and the band’s performance is awe-inspiring." MOSHVILLE (UK) “If you buy VADER, you can’t go wrong.” DEAF FOREVER (GER), Frank Albrecht Today, Polish death metal legends, VADER, release their crushing new album »The Empire« and once again prove that their merciless riffs are made to unleash hell. Without doubt, »The Empire« falls under the category of VADER’s classic albums. The impressive monument that they have built with their 13th studio album will immediately find its place in metal history and will also prove that VADER don’t need to make their peace with the world; they never did, and they certainly don’t now – especially after writing more than 30 years’ worth of Death Metal history.
