It has been quite a while since Vader’s
debut “Ultimate Incantation,” 14 years I believe. “The
Art Of War” is the latest release for these metallers from Poland.
It might just be an MCD, but it packs a punch! The blast beats can be relentless
and the riffs shred…some heavy, some crunchy, all headbang worthy
death metal! I would say this is mostly a fast paced disc, with a few super
heavy chugging breakdowns. A great example of that is track three, “Lead
Us.” The second track “This Is War” is excellent too and
it has a video on the disc as well. “What Colour Is Your Blood?”
is also pretty good. Only about fourteen and a half minutes long for these
six tracks, and there is a minute and a half intro to start and a minute
long instrumental intermission in the middle. I guess my only complaint
is that I wish “The Art Of War” was a little longer because
I like what I hear!
