Dark Essence Records / Karisma / Soulfood
The progressive and experimental extreme metal band Vulture Industries, is ready with their 2nd album called "The Malefactor’s Bloody Register". Their debut, "The Dystopia Journals", got excellent reviews all over the European press, which resulted in several tours alongside bands like Dark Fortress, Taake, Helheim, Atrox, Panchrysia and more, as well as festival appearances at Inferno Festival and others. As a live band, they've got great reviews for their technical and tight performance, and they really stick out with the weird antics of vocalist Bjørnar Nilsen. The band has a unique and special sound, which is both very complex and at the same time catchy and to the point. With this 2nd album, they’ve really made their style their own.
“The Malfactor’s Bloody Register” was recorded at Conclave & Earshot Studios with Bjørnar Nilsen, and was mastered by Brian Gardner (Isis, NIN, David Bowie). The album also features a guest performance by Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved) on hammond organ, and performers on cello, viola and saxophone.
With a highly energetic live show, a very distinct sound and the manic performance of vocalist Bjørnar Nilsen, this is a band you won't miss out on.
