Vader is currently working at Hertz Studio, Bialystok (Poland) on the band's 25th anniversary album. Peter Wiwczarek (guitars, vocals) checks in from the studio:
We have just finished all drum-tracks for the anniversary album... Daray drummed never so much hard in so short time before: 26 songs in almost a week !!! At the beginning we didn't plan to make "a regular" studio session for this record...There was to be 15 hits taken from Vader's discography and we supposed to be done in three weeks (two weeks in March and one week in September). We decided but to record 25 (!!!) songs (for XXV jubilee)- and this is a big difference indeed...Like I mentioned before, we put an attention on Vader's first releases,so: there are 6 songs from "The Ultimate Incantation"; 5 from "De Profundis" ; 4 from "Black To The Blind" ; 3 from "Litany" and one from "Revelation" and "The Beast"...The rest are mini albums and...surprises.

According to the official Children Of Bodom fan site Scythes Of Bodom, guitarist Alexi Laiho revealed that Sinergy's long awaited fourth album "Sins Of The Past" is still not complete. Some solos and vocals have yet to be recorded - work that could be finished in only a couple days - but it seems there is a risk that the previously recorded material has been lost. The material was reportedly nowhere to be found last week. No further details have been released, but the search continues, and Alexi seemed hopeful that it hasn't vanished permanently.
"Sins Of The Past" was originally due to be released in 2005. Recordings began in June 2004 at Finnvox Studios.
Sinergy features vocalist Kimberly Goss, COB's Alexi Laiho and guitarist Roope Latvala and Stratovarius/Kotipelto bassist Lauri Porra.
