The stunning cover artwork of The Empire was created by acclaimed artist Joe Petagno who has also created artwork for PINK FLOYD, LED ZEPPELIN, MOTÖRHEAD, MARDUK, ILLDISPOSED and SODOM.
Mastermind Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek states:
"Here is the cover art for 'The Empire' created by Joe Petagno himself! The whole design includes many details connected to the main theme influencing me before and during the process of recording: war and the "cold crisis" around us today... There are also links to couple of famous movie series, which influence the generations and erupt with violence, hate and "imperial tendencies"... Is this just a fantasy or maybe a sign of the 21st century generation? You have to answer that yourself... and the future will show us, how real that feeling is? Enjoy »The Empire« and... join us on tour soon!"

Without doubt, »The Empire« falls under the category of VADER’s classic albums. The impressive monument that they have built with their 13th studio album will immediately find its place in metal history. And it will also prove that VADER don’t need to make their peace with the world; they never did, and they certainly don’t now – especially after writing more than 30 years’ worth of Death Metal history.
The globally conquering weapon was produced, mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski. »The Empire« was completed within the secret bunkers of Hertz Studios in Bialystok, Poland. The weapon is going to be unleashed upon the world on November 4th, 2016 by commanders in chief, Nuclear Blast.
