There it is, the cover art for Vader’s next album (their 12th), Tibi Et Igni. My Latin is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure Tibit Et Igni means “we will hammer the back of your head so hard your eyeballs will be ejected at the speed of sound and then we’ll start on your spine”.
The cover is damned cool. It was created is by veteran artist Joe Petagno, and the album was recorded by the Wieslawski brothers at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland (we already mentioned them earlier today because they recorded Beneath’s new album). The album will be released on May 30 by Nuclear Blast. A two-song single will be released on April 18, both digitally and on 7″ vinyl.
Actually, I just checked, and my Latin is rustier than I thought. Tibit Et Igni apparently means “For You and Fire”. I think this is just another way of saying “we will burn you like dry kindling and scatter your ash to the four winds”. The track list is after the jump for those who are into that kind of thing (the bonus tracks look interesting). Here also is the band’s previously released quote about the new music:
“To all expecting new forms, artistic experiments or other pathetic garbage, we say: GO TO HELL!! We are devoted to metal and loyal to our fans.”
01. Go to Hell
02. Where Angels Weep
03. Armada On Fire
04. Triumph Of Death
06. Abandon All Hope
07. Worms Of Eden
08. The Eye Of The Abyss
09. Light Reaper
10. The End
11. Necropolis (re-recorded)
12. Des Satans Neue Kleider (DAS ICH cover)
Can anybody tell me what’s the deal with the disembodied eyeballs? Every other metal album these days seems to have at least one on the cover. Is there some sort of sinister significance I’m not aware of?
“Necropolis” re-recorded? I know they have an album called Necropolis, but there isn’t a title track on it. What album is this song from?
Good question, for which I have no answer. I did a song search on Metal Archives and found no such song by Vader. Maybe something they recorded previously but decided not to use?
artistic experiments = pathetic garbage…
Oh Vader, I love you, but please don’t turn into Manowar on me.
I’m sure the guys in Vader are stoked about the Opeth news from earlier today.
I admit that I added that quote to the post because I had the Opeth post still in my mind. 🙂
i’m so damn excited for this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and the awesomeness of a new Vader album.
