The Morbid Reich-demo from Polish veterans Vader were sent to me from one of my Polish friends during the tape trading era. And mind you, I had the original demo with the color cover – a feature rather unusual back in the days. This is probably THE death metal legacy from Poland; a brutality and sher non-x attitude never to be seen later. I played the tape literary to pieces and I have never heard anything like it in the past 24 years. To illustrate the importance of this demo; the drum sound on this demo were used as a guideline by Euronymous when recording the De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas album. Enjoy peeps!

“I knew the existance of VADER previously to the MORBID REICH demo, but was not the point for me to write about those since i simply don’t remember. BUT when i got the MORBID REICH in hands, what was my immense surprise to listen such a great demo ! The sound in generally was so rude and so underground, but also reflect perfectly what i could expect from this demo tape. Just right after the intro, i’ve got straight punch in my head with this thrashy guitar riffs, drumming like if you were at the rehearsal room with the band, and a cavernous vocals. All was done to please me and back then, i was on my own selling demos, lp’s, ep’s at concerts and can clearly say i sold a fucking huge quantity of this demo tape! A classic to enjoy with the re-issue!”

“Vader-Morbid Reich demo 1990.Thrash-punk from the devils own graveyard. Raw genetic pulse in a vibrant cold charm of Hellish riffings. A Naked grim sound smooithly dressed up with a chanting vocal performance that makes it appear honest and holds that little extra you need to feel the magic of metal.
– Aldrahn (Dodheimsgard / Thorns / The deathtrip).
