Poland’s magnificent Vader spent the first part of 2013 laying waste to Europe in a tour called Back To the Black. Over the weekend, news surfaced that Vader will now be bringing Back To the Black to the U.S. For support, they will be backed by U.S. death metal veterans Vital Remains, California death/thrashers Sacrificial Slaughter, a Colorado death/black band named Execration, and a bunch of brutal death Floridians named Extremely Rotten.

I’m not familiar with all of these bands, but based on the ones I know, this should be a thoroughly maiming, blood-spattered experience. And of course, any chance to see Vader is a chance that should be seized.

Only an initial slate of 11 dates has surfaced so far, and more will be coming. Check out the first installment after the jump.

Sep. 6th – Santa Ana, CA @ Yost Theatre
Sep. 7th – Oakland, CA @ Oakland Metro
Sep. 9th – Seattle, WA @ El Corazon

  1. Tickets! Tickets! Where do I get tickets?!
    Conveniently, I’ve already got the entire week of the 9th off. Plus, even though it’s my girlfriend’s birthday, she is fine with me abandoning her for metal! Of course, now I’m gonna have to double my efforts to get her a really awesome gift…
    I’s okay though, ’cause VADER!!!
