Vader Premiere Lyric Video For Their Cover Of Judas Priest’s “Steeler”

Vader have premiered a lyric video for their cover of Judas Priest’s “Steeler.” This track appears on the band’s new EP “Thy Messenger,“ which was released today (May 31).

Vader Premiere New Song “Grand Deceiver”

Vader have premiered a new song titled “Grand Deceiver.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Thy Messenger,“ which will be released on May 31. The band commented:

“We are so excited to give you a new Vader song from our fresh record! ‘Grand Deceiver‘ is the opening track on Thy Messenger EP and perfect explanation of what you all may expect with the upcoming releases. Sharp as razor and brutal as Hell track is just an appetizer before the new Vader album to come. Chris of Nuclear Blast created this brilliant lyric-video clip, which you can watch while waiting for Thy Messenger. Sit comfortably, play it LOUD and…ENJOY!!!”

Vader Cover Judas Priest’s “Steeler” For New EP “Thy Messenger”

Vader have revealed that their new EP “Thy Messenger” will feature a cover of Judas Priest’s “Steeler.” That effort will be released on May 31 and it will also come with four of five songs the band recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland early this year. Furthermore, Vader’s new album, which is tentatively titled “…And Then There Was Only Pain,” will be tracked this spring. A fall release is expected.

The group commented:

“We decided to record this EP because we knew that the full length new album won’t be released before the end of 2019. We’re back on the road in June and we plan to have some new tunes ready for our fans throughout the summer – before that we’re due to start the recording process for the new Vader LP in April in England.

For the time being we’ve named the album: ‘…And Then There Was Only Pain‘ and it should be completed by the end of May – when ‘Thy Messenger‘ EP is due to be released worldwide. The EP includes three new tracks – mostly really vicious and aggressive tracks, even for Vader. ‘Emptiness‘ is more groovy in the main riff but really heavy at the end.

All of the songs are fast and short, but pretty intense. We’ve also added a new version of our classic title track from ‘Litany‘. It is 20 years since we recorded that album at the Red Studio. ‘Litany‘ – as a song – and many more from that album have never been performed live. This album is still one of the fan favourites in the Vader discography and we will resurrect this whole record as part of our touring this autumn.

Another bonus is the absolute classic cover of ‘Steeler‘ which has always been one of my all time favorite Priest songs.”

Vader Announce New EP “Thy Messenger”

Vader will be releasing a new EP titled “Thy Messenger” in late spring/early summer. The band commented:

“VADERMANIAX !!! As announced a while ago, we’d like to present you a new VADER release. New EP entitled THY MESSENGER contains four of the five recorded songs, whose titles will be presented soon. The material was made in about a week (January / February) at the Hertz Studio in Białystok under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers. Below we present the cover painted by Wes Benscoter – the same Artist who created a beautiful picture for the cover of “De Profundis” or other bands like Slayer, Kreator or Sinister. The material will be available at the turn of spring and summer this year. Exactly at the same time, a full VADER album will be created, the premiere of which is planned for the end of 2019. More details are coming soon on
