There is some contention as to the beginnings of Vader, but the truth is that they began in the autumn of 1983 by 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 5000 persons.
Immolation will be touring in honour of their hugely successful new record, ‘Atonement’, which was released only a handful of days ago.
Immolation is a name long synonymous with the extreme music scene, delivering some of the most unique and creatively dark death metal the underground has ever witnessed. 2017 marks 29 years for Immolation – the band continue to push the boundaries and remain a vibrant force for the future of a genre that they helped define. Ever since their debut album ‘Dawn of Possession’ (Roadrunner) was released in in 1991, they have continued album after album to refine and hone their most identifiable style, creating some of the darkest and most adventurous death metal the scene has ever heard.
