#19 - VADER – Necropolis (Nuclear Blast)

Necropolis (2009)

Polish death metal stalwarts released their new full length album, Necropolis, first on August 21st in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records and in the US and Canada on September 22nd as an 11-track jewel case and as a limited edition digi-pak with two bonus tracks plus a bonus DVD. Recorded at Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland with the Wieslawski Bros., Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC, ABORTED) mixed the album at Antfarm Studios in Denmark. Cover artwork is by Jacek Wisniewski.

This past fall, Vader unveiled the 'Never Say My Name' video which was inspired by Patrick Graham's bestselling book L'Évangile Selon Satan (translation: The Gospel According To Satan).

According to the band: "The clip tells an alternate story of the death of a messiah who curses humanity before his death on the cross and chooses life in Hell instead of Heaven. Perhaps because of its 'controversial' title and content, this book is not available in the US in English, but a French version can be ordered from Canada. The clip was produced by Polish Inbornmedia company, who did our two previous video clips 'Helleluyah' and 'The Witcher'. The result is amazing!"
