Prepare for the northern blitzkrieg! Polish death metal commanders VADER are returning to Finland this May with brothers-in-arms DECAPITATED, for three nights of merciless onslaught.
The titanic force that is Vader will descend upon Finland for their first club gigs since 2008! Having started their career in 1983 – the same year as other death metal pioneers such as Death and Possessed – Vader has been a consistent and influential part of extreme metal history, churning out numerous classics and propagating their message of war with unwavering determination. Late 2016 saw the crushing release of their 13th full-length “The Empire,” placing them in optimal condition to conquer the Northern territories this May!
Despite being active since 1996 and touring profusely, the legendary Decapitated have somehow managed thus far to elude Finnish soil, but no longer! Straight outta Krosno, Decapitated already started blowing minds with their 2000 debut “Winds of Creation,” which boasted youthful speed and ferocity, and a keen and masterful technical proficiency. Since then, these shredders have taken tech death to a far more personal and innovative place, incorporating groove, inherent melodicism and tormented emotion.
Touring alongside Vader and Decapitated and completing the Polish triumvirate is Thy Disease from Krakow, offering an invigorating injection of industrial into their death metal dose.
The Finnish leg of the Crushing the North tour is presented by Helsinki-based Elektrik Products in association with Enslain Magazine
