This year Vader celebrate their 30th anniversary. In came into being in 1983 in Olsztyn by the initiative of the guitarist Zbigniew “Viki” Wróblewski and Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek, who remained the band’s leader ever since. The group’s release was the first in the history of Polish music to be charted on the Japanese Oricon list; they are the sole group to, continuously, tour the US, Australia, Japan, South America and Europe since three decades. With time Vader have gained the status of music legend and are regarded today as precursors of death metal in Poland.
