VADER

VADER
The band initially started off as just a heavy/speed metal band. Eventually, their form of "extreme" thrash metal became better known as their death metal sound. Many hail Vader as one of the first death metal bands from Poland, placing their country on the international death metal scene.

In the early years Piotr Wiwczarek used the nickname Behemoth.

Zbigniew "Vika" Wróblewski, after leaving Vader in the middle of the 1980s, opened a small business which has produced guitar pick ups (which Vader have used).

Though Daray had performed session drums on "The Beast", Krzysztof "Doc" Raczkowski officially left the band in 2005 after recovering from an ankle injury after "the whole band made the decision of his 'to be or not to be' last week" concerning life with his girlfriend and newborn son: "Doc pretty hard tried to 'fight' against his weaknesses, which were troubles for all of us. Finally he had not prevail over that battle... All in all he attempted. Vader today is not just a friendship anymore - it's our life with armies of man involved in music, releases and - first of all - fans waiting for shows or new albums... This is a high responsibility, not too many know about. If a person, even the most talented one, cannot stand it - has to leave... That was Doc's decision as well."

Long time guitarist Maurycy "Mauser" Stefanowicz played his last show with Vader on August 30th 2008 (this was also Darek "Daray" Brzozowski's final gig).

Vader also appears on:
- "Czarne Zastepy - Tribute to Kat" (1996) with the song "Wyrocznia"
- "Tyrants from the Abyss - Tribute to Morbid Angel" (2001) with the song "Immortal Rites"
- "Originators of the Northern Darkness - Tribute to Mayhem" (2003) with the song "Freezing Moon"
- "Seven Gates of Horror - Tribute to Possessed" (2004) with the song "Death Metal"

Vader have contributed the song "Sword of the Witcher" to the PC game "The Witcher", based on Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski's popular and successful short stories and novel. A TV series and movie have been produced in Poland, such is the popularity of these stories (info courtesy of Wikipedia and the official Witcher website).

Despite various bass players being credited on recordings, through the years, most bass parts on Vader's discography were recorded by Peter.
