Staff review by

Maybe The first well recognized death metal band from Europe, Vader released in the year 1990 their demo "Morbid Reich" a master piece in this genre and is still considered one of the best demo tapes in death metal history, ten years after that success they released a great album called "Litany" so lets take a closer look at this one.

  Excellent album, very brutal

Rating: 10 This is IMO the best Vader album. I love it more than De Profundis. Xeper is an amazing track.

Rating: 9 I'm not a fan of Death Metal in general, but I am falling in love with Vader.

  Couldn't grasp it at first (vocals were weird as hell to me), but it's really growing on me.

Rating: 9 It's an awesome killer album, but definitely too short. That's why I gave it "only" 9.

  A completely enjoyable blast of energy the whole way through.

This is not really a big complaint but I think the vocals are a little bit low in the mix and so is the snare drum, the bass drum is slightly too loud, I know this might be intentional but I think Black to the Blind had better production. I can't find any flaws in the music itself however.

I'm not a fan of Death Metal in general, but I am falling in love with Vader.

They are probably the most accessible band in the sub-genre, along with Morbid Angel. Does not mean they are any worse for it though.

Rating: 6 The most important element in Death Metal - The Bass ! is still not versatile enough.

  Lol ^

  Holy shit, this is fucking beast.

Rating: 10 Lol this was my first death metal album, excluding revelations and blood (bought these three on amazon at the same time). I give this a 10, even though I don't listen to it that much anymore. This album is just pure epicness (and better than De Profundis to be honest)
NocturnalStalker - 03.09.2016 at 19:32  
Rating: 9 Definitely of the best Vader records as well as my favourite along with The Beast and Impressions In Blood. Great death metal with thrash-y edge.
Favourite tracks: Wings, Xeper, Litany, Cold Demons, North, The World Made Flesh.
