Vader- The Darkest Age (1994)

Death metal began in the early 80’s at Lyman High School with Death. There are few bands that can be mentioned in the same breath as them, death metal is a hard sound to pull off and started out as a very small genre. At the same time Possessed and Death were forming in the US Vader was exploring a similar sound in Poland, emerging from behind the Iron Curtain playing serious death metal (not just a novelty band from a communist country).
The Darkest Age is a live album from a show Vader played in Krakow in 1993 and is an excellent representation of early death metal and a must have for any reputable collection, 90%.
