Tropes Related to Vader:

  • The Alcoholic: Why Krzysztof "Doc" Raczkowski was fired. By the end of his run in the band, he was an out-of-control alcoholic who was fast approaching rock bottom, and the band was fast losing their patience with him. The last straw came during the recording sessions for The Beast, when Doc (who was still in the band at the time) drunkenly fell down a flight of stairs during the sessions and fractured his hand, and the band had to hire Dariusz Brzozowski as a session member because they knew then and there that they could no longer have Doc in the band. It wound up killing him just a year later, as he died of heart failure at just thirty-four years old.

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: They have Covered "Raining Blood" by Slayer, Extreme Noise Terror's "Raping the Earth", The Exploited's "Troops of Tomorrow" and... Depeche Mode's "I Feel You."
  • Ascended Extra: Marek Pająk.
  • Call-Back: The album Welcome to the Morbid Reich, to the Morbid Reich demo.
  • Cool Old Guy: Peter is over 50, and he's still playing intense death metal.
  • Cover Album: The two Future of the Past albums.
  • Death Metal
  • Epic Rocking: "Revelation of Black Moses".
  • Genre-Busting: Death Metal and Thrash Metal molded into one.
  • Harsh Vocals: Subverted, surprisingly, as Piotr Wiwczarek instead opts for a very clear throaty bellow with a noticeable accent (which is rare in death metal). This style was later popularized by several other vocalists (Nergal, Adam Buszko, and Adrian Kowanek) and has become known as the "Polish Growler" style.

  • Heavy Mithril: They wrote and performed "Sword of the Witcher" for the compilation album The Witcher: Music Inspired By the Game.
  • "I Am" Song: "I Am Who Feasts Upon Your Soul".
  • I Am the Band: Peter.
  • Instrumentals: "Creation", "Red Dunes", "Between Day and Night", "Ultima Thule", "They Are Coming".
  • Live Album: The Darkest Age, Live in Japan.
  • Miniscule Rocking: "An Act of Darkness", "The Innermost Ambience", and "Forwards to Die!!!" are just a few examples.
  • Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Solid 10.
  • Motor Mouth: Peter's vocal delivery can get insanely fast at times, "Decapitated Saints" and "The Final Massacre" being the most prominent examples.
  • Rearrange the Song: The band frequently re-records old material and puts it on new releases. They did that to the entire The Ultimate Incantation album for its 25th anniversary under the name Dark Age.
  • Shout-Out: The name is one to Darth Vader. The Empire is also a pretty obvious nod to the same franchise.
  • Special Guest: Nergal delivers guest vocals on "Revelations", and he's just one of them in all of Vader history. It'd be far to difficult too list them all.
  • Thrash Metal
