The album was recorded in Studio 666 in Morąg under the watchful eye (and ear) of Michał Grabowski. The cover art was designed by BLACK TEAM MEDIA.

Below you can check out both the tracklist and the cover art.

More info and first sound trailer coming soon.

VADER – “THE ULTIMATE INCANTATION”
Opublikowano: June 03, 2016

Due to emergence of new circumstances, legal matters and documents that we did not have nor knew about when we set this album to be released, we are forced to cancel the planned reissue of “The Ultimate Incantation” record.

Nevertheless, we would like to inform you that we are planning to release in 2017 “The Ultimate Incantation of Evil” with the whole album recorded anew with the cover art that we already proposed for the cancelled release.

Just to avoid any misunderstandings and speculations we would like to assure you that when we signed for doing the reissue we were in possession of all the documents & contracts to make it done. Unfortunately few weeks after announcing the record we stumbled upon new documents that turned the tables around for us. We have tried all the legal solutions possible to make this release a go but we weren’t able to come to an agreement with the rights holder.

We would like to apologize for all the confusion and failing your trust to deliver the record in the announced form. All the returns for the purchase of pre-orders will be handled individually by our store clerks who will contact you by e-mail. Once again we apologize for all the inconvenience. It’s a hard lesson that we had to learn.
