Witherfall Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of Helloween’s “A Tale That Wasn’t Right”

Witherfall have premiered a new video for their cover of Helloween’s “A Tale That Wasn’t Right.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Vintage,” which will be released on March 22. That effort will feature covers, acoustic tracks, and more.

The group commented:

“Right after the band landed in the ill-fated Panama City FL to begin recording A Prelude To Sorrow the idea of doing an 80s power ballad was drunkenly pondered by the band. On one of Steve Bolognese’ IPA benders he came up with Helloween’s ‘A Tale That Wasn’t Right’. Though the band recorded the song during the APS sessions, the video was shot during the band’s recent tour of Japan as support for Kamelot. With Japanese tour manager Mia Steinhausen guiding our way, we were amazed and honored to be so welcomed by the fans and label(s) in Japan that we decided to create a little visual tribute as a gift to everyone who helped us out. Seen in the beginning is even a cameo by none other than Masa-Ito! Domo-Arigato.”

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.”
