No rest for the wicked! Yesterday, Polish death metal tank VADER finished a tour across their home country with MARDUK – and today the band alongside frontman Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek has already announced their next touring campaign. VADER will be co-headlining twenty-four European dates with Swedish death metallers ENTOMBED A.D. Both bands will be hitting our UK shores for four dates on this run, one of which includes an appearance at Damnation Festival in Leeds. Support acts for the trek will be added soon. All dates can be found below.

There is some contention as to the beginnings of VADER, but the truth is that they began in the autumn of 1983 with Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek (BARDAST and later BEHEMOTH back then) playing the bass and the guitarist Zbyszek “Vika” Wroblewski. Extreme metal was about to be born in Poland and VADER were among the pioneers of that genre in the newly emerging underground – and the only band from that era still reigning! The first crucial point in the band’s history was their participation in the first Polish heavy metal festival – Metalmania in 1986, where they played to an audience of around 5,000 persons.
