Polish death metal masters Vader will unleash their 16th studio album, ‘Solitude in Madness,’ on May 1st via Nuclear Blast. The band have just posted the artwork for the LP, which was created by the legendary Wes Benscoter (Autopsy, Cattle Decapitation). Check it out below.
Here’s a statement from leadman Peter Wiwczarek:
Humanity never learns from its lessons. I feel tensions continuing to rise around the world. People have forgotten about true pain, from a bigger picture standpoint. Generationally, the new generation doesn’t respect the old, and I’d challenge they don’t even respect themselves. Our everyday lives are on TV, so there’s no soul left. Everything’s empty. I think technology is also sucking the human out of us. There are more lonely people now than ever before, and yet we’re supposed to be connected together by technology. It’s madness! That’s where the title, Solitude in Madness, came from, actually. Of course, I approach these topics in a very Vader way. I love telling stories and expressing myself through those stories.
