VADER - Welcome To The Morbid Reich

When someone things of the Polish Death Metal scene, one name comes in mind, and this is Vader. A band that exists for almost two decades, has seen various line up changes, but still continues to release works that are top notch, carefully prepared and wisely realized. This is also the case here, with their debut Nuclear Blast relase, and the devoted fan of their style of Death Metal, will accept it with a grin on his face. What is more enjoyable is that the band has created an album that is not only aggressive and brutal, but also groovy and catchy, with some nice melodies here and there, specially in the intros, and this enhances the feeling of each song. Another thing we liked is the plenty Thrash riffs and moments in the songs, that make this album even more catchy and fun to listen. Top class musicianship, excellent arrangements, and although there is not much variety in the song styles, the band manages to keep the listener interested until the end. The production is also very good, as clear and as powerful as it should be, without making the album sound too shinny. One might thing that there's no progression in their music, as time goes by, but Vader are having a very distinguished style in their music, which they only perfect with each release. So, if you are a fan of the band, or you like Death Metal in general, here's the best of what Poland has to offer. Enjoy.
