Welcome to the Morbid Reich was recorded between March and April 2011 at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland, and was produced by the Wiesławscy Brothers, and features cover artwork by Zbigniew Bielak. The album is the final Vader release to feature drummer Paweł "Paul" Jaroszewicz, and the first to feature guitarist Marek "Spider" Pająk as band member. Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek described work on the album, saying:
In all, we spent about 4 weeks in the studio between March and June. We worked a bit differently as in previous sessions, because we made breaks between each part of recordings. I mean for the drums we took about 10 days, and then we made a week’s break, so we could think and work the guitar lines for the drums. And after the guitars we had a break to think about the vocal lines and all we had already done. And then a break before mixing, so we wanted to give a little bit of a rest for ears and mind, and to take the song recordings with the fresh ears.
