Vader / 40 Years of the Apocalypse Anniversary Tours 2023

In the realm of Death Metal, few bands have left as profound a mark as the Polish Titans, Vader. With a career spanning over four decades, this uncompromising force has carved a path of unrelenting brutality, establishing themselves as legends within the Extreme Metal scene. Vader will bring their 40 Years of the Apocalypse – Anniversary Tours 2023 to Europe and South America later this year.

“VADERMANIAX!!! We ALL were waiting for this info,” the band said. “Vader starts the first shows of The World 40-anniversary Tour 2023/2024 on 20 September in the Czech Republic. Be ready for a very special setlist reminding the band’s way since the vicious Necrolust demo till the recent nuclear Solitude In Madness album. And more.

“On this tour organized by Massive Music, our old Friends from Vomitory will share the stages with us. ARE YOU READY FOR THE ULTIMATE RIDE TO HELL? STAY VADERIZED \m/ \m/”

From their inception in 1983, Vader’s unwavering dedication to their craft and their unapologetic pursuit of sonic chaos have made them a force to be reckoned with.

Vader’s Necrolust demo marked the dawning of a new era in the annals of Death Metal. With its unfiltered aggression and unrefined sound, the demo laid the groundwork for the band’s subsequent rise to prominence. While the demo may lack the refined precision of their later releases, it captured the raw essence of a band hungry to unleash their musical malevolence upon the world. It serves as a chilling reminder of Vader’s origins and their unrelenting pursuit of sonic darkness.
