VadimVon is an American-based project originally created by Ikon V in 2004 as an artistic and creative outlet for uncompromising, fierce, infernal American metal. The content of VadimVon is deeply rooted in doomsday prophecies of cosmic destruction, ancient demonology, and the dark powers which exist outside of this Universe, awaiting to invade this cosmic shell and bring forth the reign of the Ancient Primordial Khaos.
An EP titled "Abyssus Diabolorum" was recorded in late 2006 and released in May of 2007 as a limited-edition printing through Eradication Process, an underground label based in the UK.
Composing new material, creating official artwork for Morbid Angel, and gaining heavy airplay on radioshows such as the Australian Solarfall Radio, Evolgrinder's World Destroyers, and UK's Ragnarok Radio throughout the spring, summer, and fall of 2007, VadimVon had seized its existence as a one-man metal entity and formed itself into a performing lineup. Sado-Golem, Ikon V's partner in crime, joined in as a full-time member of the band.
While taking on an intensive rehearsal schedule with stand-in live musicians as well as an extensive pallette of digital madness, VadimVon was yet able to complete the production of an entire full-length album.
"RiseKhaosInfernal" is a ravenous, blistering, frightening, uncompromising slab of dark khaotic energy, reaching inhuman speeds of 320bpm, awaiting to deliver a crushing blow to the eyes and ears of the worldwide extreme metal community. The album was produced and engineered by Ikon V and Sado-Golem.
Album sales soon spanned this ball of dirt. Digital copies are being downloaded throughout the world as you are reading this, resulting in an impressive amount even after being out for only a short period of time. The momentum of VadimVon grows exponentially, like a black hole, devouring the ears of the listeners who, in turn, would become newly-converted fans.
In April of 2008, after an extensive visit to Tampa, Ikon V was selected as the finalist from the entire North and South American continent to fill the new guitarist spot in Morbid Angel. Due to last minute life circumstances, however, the spot was filled by a guitarist from a famous European metal band whose name cannot be revealed at this time. Ikon V, on the other hand, is the artist/designer behind the new line of Morbid Angel's merchandise, all of which will be available throughout Europe in the summer of 2008 during their Euro festival tour. And as the new Morbid Angel album drops, VadimVon is touring the US as supporting act for the metal giants.
