Guest review by

The Art Of War…no doubt, this is the basic text of Vader on The Art Of War. Yes, this release completely floored me. I can't remember the last time these Poles were so impressive and focused, so I've to make this clear - this is one perfect masterpiece of high quality death metal.

I can easily remember how I discovered Vader: it was in 2000, when we were discussing (me and fellow metalheads) who we though to be the most underrated band, they mentioned this great Polish death metal band called Vader. They also advised me to get their albums, I bought many albums of this band who are supposedly so damned good. Well, after just one listen I realized what all the band was about, as this is some of the most impressive death I've ever heard! Since then I have acquired all of the band's other albums which were monstrous.
