Starting as heavy metal group, Vader eventually went to thrash, speed, and then in the late 1980s became a death metal band. The band's name was inspired by Darth Vader from the Star Wars film series. Lyrical themes include stories by H. P. Lovecraft, World War II, horror, and anti-religious messages. According to Billboard magazine, by 2002 Vader sold approximately 500,000 releases around the world.
