I've heard that Darkthrone was influenced by Vader's demos, which date back to around 1986. This came as a huge surprise to me, especially considering that they consider them an influence on their post-Soulside Journey, black metal output. I've always thought of Vader as a late-comer Death Metal band who released a couple decent albums then became mediocre. I figured they must have formed in the early 90's at the earliest, but apparently they have demos from the 80's. Has anyone heard these, and if so, what do they sound like?
