Norwegian progressive extreme metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES entered the Conclave And Earshot Studios in Bergen early last week to begin work on their third full-length album for an early 2013 release via Season Of Mist. So far the drums have been recorded, and frontman Bjornar Nilsen, who is also producing the CD, commented that the band set out to aim for a much more organic and dynamic sound this time around, and that so far he is very pleased with the result. Once the LP has been recorded, mixing will be carried out at the Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden by Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with OPETH, PARADISE LOST, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, ENSLAVED and IHSAHN, amongst others.
Based in Bergen, and with two critically acclaimed releases already under its belt, VULTURE INDUSTRIES consists of Bjornar Nilsen (BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) on vocals, keys and programming, Øyvind Madsen (SULPHUR, ex-ENSLAVED) and Eivind Huse (SULPHUR) on guitar, Kyrre Teigen on bass and Tor Helge Gjengedal (ex-TAAKE) on drums. Nilsen, who is himself one of Norway’s leading producers, is known for his highly theatrical onstage performances that earn VULTURE INDUSTRIES a myriad of new fans wherever they play.
VULTURE INDUSTRIES next live appearance is scheduled for October 6 at the Phantoms Of Pilsen festival in the Czech Republic.
