2014-Tibi_Et_Igni

Sometimes I wonder if people heard the same records or saw the same films I saw. Sepultura’s The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be The Heart was a Metropolis referencing winning meld of the band’s nu tribal styles with their thrash roots, full of nasty drum attack, thrashing riffs and a feral performance from the politically fired up Derrick Green on songs like “Trauma Of War” and “The Vatican”. It even had Ross Robinson producing, but it wasn’t as praised as it should have been. Can you seriously go to Brazil’s finest’s Wikipedia page, look at their discography and not see as many good albums as the Max Cavalera led version? The band continues to do great and meaningful work even with a smaller fan base. But we’re here to talk about two records most metalheads won’t be divided over.

It is hard to fuck with Poland when it comes to death metal. Is that even an issue?

Behemoth‘s The Satanist is widely being praised by critics as their finest hour to date, while Nuclear Blast’s 2014 release of Vader‘s Tibi Et Igni is nothing less than a total victory, a shot of hellfire in the arm of death metal for fans worldwide to covet. Bombast and utter chaos executed with deadly accuracy by metal masters is an earmark of both records. Symphonic and tempo experimentation add shade and contrast to plunging depths, careening solos and sick fucking drum sounds/performances. But the reason they are heads and devil tails above the pack is not what you might think. Pride. It isn’t that these are the most evil, the “best” thing they’ve ever recorded or even that they are really clever records full of ambition.

Decapitated part ways with drummer, announce replacement

Posted by Metal Dude on Monday, September 3, 2012 at 7:37 PM (PST)

Decapitated have announced the departure of their drummer Kerim Lechner, who joined the band when they reunited in 2009, replacing the late Witold “Vitek” Kiełtyka. Lechner released the following statement in regards to his decision to leave the band:

Too many personal differences and other difficulties made me decide like this. I appreciate the good times we had together and what we could achieve in more than two and a half years. Even if our ways are dividing, I wish the band to keep going. However, it’s time for me to move on.

I don’t know what will be next, but I would like to stay in this business. I love to write and play music for you guys. This is my life and this is what I want to continue.”

Vader drummer Pawel Jaroszewicz has reportedly been tapped as Lechner’s replacement.

Poland’s death metal extremists Vader have recently entered the studio to record “Welcome to the Morbid Reich”, the band’s ninth full-length studio album. Their first studio update gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the drum session. Here’s what they had to say.

“Last week we ended the drums recording session for the newest album. Below are Pawel’s personal impressions:

” Just the day before yesterday we finished recording drums for the new Vader’s album – “Welcome to the Morbid Reich”. Our revisit in the Hertz Studio proceeded undisturbed and once again brothers Wieslawski proved to be professionals to the core. We started our session showing up in the studio on March 14th, at 9 p.m. after a few hours’ drive on our perfect Polish roads with a trailer full of gear – I really recommend it! J This day we only managed to do the load-in and hit the sack – as we were dead on our feet. The real session started the next day with setting up the drums, changing the skins, placing microphones and tuning the drums.

Check out the video and more thoughts from Pawel here.
