Hardline Media could not be more thrilled to relaunch both international Metal music in Australia and Hardline Touring with Polish legends' VADER and THY DISEASE! Playing a selection of songs from throughout their massive career, VADER will hit BRISBANE, SYDNEY and MELBOURNE stages with THY DISEASE in MAY 2023. After a very quiet couple of years, this is the way to get heavy back Down Under...

Polish Death Metal legends VADER have already released their 16th studio album, 'SOLITUDE IN MADNESS', in 2020, with Covid-starved fans keen to see it in action, live. Never one to rest or relax, VADER have done it all during the course of their 37-year history. From plying super-aggressive, Thrash under the watchful eye of Communist Poland... signing a worldwide deal with popular UK indie label Earache Records... to touring the globe (after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991, of course) and enjoying a near-maniacal fanbase, there’s no stopping the Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek-led outfit. Proof of that lies in the exceptionally great 'Solitude in Madness', where speed and power are back as the driving factors in VADER’s fiendish yet proficient Death Metal style. Further evidence can be found in the differences that separate previous pounder 'The Empire' from 'Solitude in Madness'.

With the band dynamic stable -Marek “Spider” Pająk (guitars), Tomasz “Hal” Halicki (bass), and James Stewart (drums) whom have been in Vader for almost a decade - the songwriting sessions were similar to 'Tibi et Igni' (2014), 'The Empire' (2016), and the tour-only 'Dark Age' (2017). They were easy and smooth. Although things weren’t always like this in the VADER camp, the current lineup has afforded Wiwczarek a platform on which to focus VADER’s most important trait: the music.
