VADER – Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek

December 31st, 2008


 Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek of VADER

Interview and live pics by Arto Lehtinen and Luxi Lahtinen

Transcription by David Groves (thanks mate!)

Vader, the legendary death metal force from Poland, have made quite a career for themselves with many successful albums and tours. Vader has also underwent some radical line-up changes over the years. Despite these line-up changes, the band’s mastermind Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek has managed to remain loyal to the original roots of Vader, navigating the band successfully from the stormy waters to calmer and flavorable harbors since the mid 80’s.

We met Peter about 2 hours before the showtime and had this great opportunity to make a long and in-depth interview with Peter regarding the recent comp. album XXV, talk about these line-up changes of the band – amongst many other things as well. The interview was conducted on October 21st 2008 when Vader were terrorizering the Finnish territories together with Grave and Zonaria.

Party San Metal Open Air – Bad Berka Germany

September 1st, 2007

Party San Metal Open Air
09-11-08 2007 Bad Berka Germany

Article and pics by Arto Lehtinen

After big and massive festivals it is more than a welcome choice to pick up the map and travel to other festivals to check out what they have to offer. As all of our readers are supposed to know, Germany is one hell of a paradise for metal maniacs to spend every weekend in metal festivals somewhere in the country. For example Party San located in the middle of the heart of Germany is another good example of what a smaller festival can offer. Party San is such an interesting event as none of bands from the flourishing power metal genre were booked since all the bands on the bill were nothing but extreme ones. Especially, the return of the Dutch death metal legends Asphyx with Martin Van Drunen on the mic was a damn tempting reason to go to Party San.

Unfortunately the gods of weather weren’t thrilled about the blasphemic nihilistic death/black bands. The whole weekend was utterly wet and rainy and of course the camping field became a real battlefield with several muddy and wet tents. However these minor weather conditions didn’t prevent 10000 extreme metal maniacs from enjoying the utter blasting brutality.

In this article I am not going to that deeply analyze each band at the festival. Instead the article’s purpose is to give an impression of this extreme metal festival in case some of our readers want an idea of the feel and taste of a brutal offering a week after Wacken.

Tuska Open Air 2007 – Helsinki, Finland

August 13th, 2007

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival

The 29th of June ? The 1st of July 2007

The Central Park of Kaisaniemi

Helsinki Finland

Review and pics by Luxi Lahtinen and Arto Lehtinen

(additional comments by Mika Hankaniemi)

Once again the prestigious Tuska open air metal festival is here. Thousands of metalheads have travelled from all around Finland and other countries to the central park of Kaisaniemi in order to celebrate the real metal inferno in the middle of Helsinki. This year the Tuska metal festival celebrates its tenth anniversary and of course the offering of the line-up of bands is as colorful as in the previous events.

Getting the mighty Norwegian black metal legends like Emperor and Immortal have been the most awaited ones amongst the audience for sure. However although these so-called big black metal legends definitely attract more of the extreme metal fans, the festival is not limited to one certain metal category. Everyone has something to feel and see and taste during these three days. Above all, power metal had a strong line up - for example Blind Guardian and Stratovarius, being the most known names in Tuska?s bill in 2007.

The festival has become a real guaranteed pure metal festival and has had massive popularity amongst all kinds of metalheads of all ages. The majority of the tickets were already sold out quickly in the advance sales a long time ago. However there were some leftovers if someone was willing to buy, and taste a feeling of metal after all. was again at Tuska to give an exact review and article on bands. Therefore sit down and enjoy your reading.

Vader, NightRage, BloodThorn – Helsinki, Finland November 2006

January 8th, 2007

BloodThorn & Nightrage
The 24th of November 2006
NightLife Rock, Helsinki, Finland

The coverage of obscure underground death metal gigs continues in Previous reviews have covered gigs of both Grave and Dismember when these bands played in obscure places in front of small, but enthusiastic audiences on their small tour thru Finland.

Vader had toured in Finland a couple of years ago gaining a solid and strong reputation as being a tight and merciless live act on stage. The band had guaranteed to deliver a lesson in the purest death metal mayhem for several extreme metal maniacs on their last tour. Therefore Vader’s return to the soil of Finland was definitely welcomed.
