VADER have just finished the recordings to their newest album "Revelations". During the session the band got help from LUX OCCULTA’s Ureck, who contributed the intro and several keyboard backdrops. During the 200-hour session the band laid to tape 14 tracks and a cover of MORBID ANGEL’s ‘Immortal Rites’. The tracklisting reads like this: ‘Son Of Fire’, ‘As The Fallen Raise’, ‘Lukewarm Race’, ‘Nomad’, ‘The Code’, ‘Revelation Of Black Moses’, ‘Torch Of War’, ‘Grand Traveller’, ‘Epitaph’, ‘Wolftribe’, ‘Whisper’, ‘When Darkness Calls’, ‘Devotion’ and ‘Angel Of Death’. The album was recorded at Red Studio, where "Litany" and "Reign Forever World" were created as well. The entire graphic side of the project – the cover artwork for all formats, posters, ads – was handled, as usual, by Jacek Wisniewski. "Revelations" will have several release dates. The earliest has been reserved for Japan, where fans will b able to listen to the album released by Avalon / Marquee Inc. on May 22nd. Five days later, on May 27th, Metal Mind will release the album in Poland. June 2nd will mark the world-wide release for Europe and the USA. To make each of these editions unique, the band decided to supplement each edition with a bonus track. The basic Polish, European and American versions of "Revelations" will feature 9 tracks: ‘Epitaph’, ‘Torch Of War’, ‘Nomad’, ‘Grand Traveller’, ‘The Code’, ‘Wolftribe’, ‘Devotion’, ‘Whisper’ and ‘Revelation Of Black Moses’. The Japanese version will have two bonuses: ‘Angel Of Death’ and ‘As The Fallen Rise’. Metal Blade are also planning to release a digi-pack edition with the ‘Lukewarm Race’ bonus while Metal Mind will supplement theirs with ‘Son Of Fire’. Metal Mind are also set to release the limited box containing the CD, a T-shirt, a sticker or a badge, and a poster. It is also possible that the American edition will feature, as extra bonus material, the "Reign Forever World" material, which has not been released in the States yet.
