The sixth full-length album by the legendary Polish Death Metal band.
It is the first full-length album by Vader not to feature Doc (R.I.P.) on drums. Getting down to business, Vader is back with another full-length after teasing the Metal world with 2003’s "Blood" EP. As reliable as a Japanese automobile, we are treated with Vader’s umpteenth release of quality, no-frills Death Metal, performed in the fine Polish tradition.
Old School, mid to fast-paced simplistic Death Metal, highlighted by top-notch drumwork (Daray on this album, filling in for Doc) and the excellent, hoarse-throated vocals of Peter. Their guitarwork is not overly technical, but never fails to get heads bobbing. But regardless, the end result is the quality of the notes played, not the quantity.
This is an easy album to enjoy even if you aren’t typically a rabid Death Metaller. The non-gutteral vocals help to that end. Relentless double-bass drumming is the foundation for the cold riffage within. Vader also tries their hand at playing clean guitar passages. Slayer riffs, adept and appropriate solos, Peter’s bark…what more do you need? Ultimately, Vader will provided you with yet another satisfying album. The "Beast" satisfies because this is the kind of Death Metal that absolutely rocks in concert, as well as pretty much anywhere else. This is a Vader album, you know what to expect after all these years, act accordingly!
