Polish death metal maestros VADER have released the album artwork for their upcoming studio record!

Titled The Empire, the eleventh album from VADER is set for release in November and now the band has released the album artwork for the upcoming record.

The Empire was completed within the secret bunkers of Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland. You can view the album artwork for The Empire below:

Speaking about the artwork, frontman and guitarist Piotr Wiwczarek says, “here is the cover artwork for The Empire created by Joe Petagno himself!! The design as a whole includes many details connected to the main theme which influenced me before and during the process of recording: war and the ‘cold crisis’ around us today. There are also links to couple of famous movie series, which influence the generations and erupt with violence, hate and ‘imperial tendencies’… Is this just a fantasy or maybe a sign of the 21st century generation?  You have to answer that yourself… and the future will show us. Enjoy The Empire and join us on tour soon!”

VADER will embark on a European tour with HATE ETERNAL and THREAT SIGNAL in November. Tickets for the London show on November 14th are available here.
