Vader – The Art of War

vader_052206_artofwarThis six song MCD follows Vader’s most recent North American tour and is meant to sate the appetite of Vader fans until the release of their next full-length album planned for a fall of 2006 release. The yet to be recorded full-length album is also set to be released on Candlelight records. In addition to the six songs present on this EP, a bonus video for the track “this is the war” has also been included. “The Art of War” is yet another rock solid release for Vader showcasing not only their penchant for over the top speed and technical proficiency, but also their knack for being able to compose slower paced/thrashier feeling material as well. For an example of this, check out the track “What Color is your Blood” with its lethal slayeresque riffing toward the end. Vader have been at or near the pinnacle of extreme metal for well over a decade now by continuing to churn out top-notch music with a style that they can truly call their own. This is quite an accomplishment in the often-similar sounding genre of death metal. Vader’s debut recording for Candlelight records “The Art of War” does nothing but continue this tradition while helping to cement their future legacy. – Lance Rogers
