Guide Review - Vader - The Art Of War
After their last album received less than stellar reviews, Vader returns to form. There are only 4 real songs on the EP with two instrumental sections, but those songs are crushingly brutal with massive blast beats and roaring vocals. There is even a hint of melody amongst all the aggression.
The production on the album is also really good. It showcases all of Vader's intensity without sounding muddy. I hope they didn't use up all of their good stuff on this EP, because if the full-length continues down this path it will be incredibly good.
