Norwegian Avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES have debuted the first twisted track taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Stranger Times’, which has been scheduled for release on the 22nd September on Season of Mist

The song “As the World Burns” is presented in the form of a lyric video, which was created by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu and  is currently being streamed exclusively by the official partners listed below.

‘Stranger Times’, which will be VULTURE INDUSTRIES’  fourth full-length album, continues and expands the band’s quest to push the limitations of genre and sound. Their nine new tracks are as easily as masterfully spanning a wide range from dark rock to progressive-experimental metal, while keeping their wild roaming within the boundaries of the band’s unique and bizarre sonic universe. Yet VULTURE INDUSTRIES manage to harness their bold mix into recognisable structures and meaningful songs throughout that do not shy away from catchiness and, quite importantly, do not fall into the trap of being weird just for the sake of experimentation.

With a lineup that comprises Bjørnar E. Nilsen on: vocals, percussion & keyboard, Øyvind Madsen on guitars,  Eivind Huse on guitars and vocals, Kyrre Teigen on bass and vocals and Tor Helge Gjengedal on drums, VULTURE INDUSTRIES had this to say about the newly debuted track:

“This song represents  the rockier side of our new album and is one of my personal favourites. ‘As the World Burns’ deals with the interdependence of extreme world views that need each other to justify their existence – a theme that is quite relevant in our strange and hazy present. Once more we have teamed up with our friend and sixth band member, the brilliant Mr. Costin Chioreanu for a video. Of course, Costin also created the album artwork. These are the first fruits of our continued co-operation and I sincerely promise that there are a lot of more strange harvests to come your way. Take a bite!”

As regards the album itself, frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen commented:

“Stranger Times” continues  along the path that we started to explore on ‘The Tower’, I proudly believe ‘Stranger Times’ to be standing out as a defining work for us. It bridges the gap between styles that we have touched upon in the past, while at the same  time expands our scope and includes a more solid dose of rock in the mix. To me, it represents our most ‘solid’ album to date and is clearly the best produced one. I am curious to see how our fans will react, but being the kind and intelligent persons that they are, we actually expect a lot of love… and maybe a bit of trash just to remind us that we are mere mortals.”

With artwork by Costin Chioreanu, “Stranger Times” was recorded and mixed by  was Bjørnar E. Nilsen & Edmond Karban at the Conclave & Earshot Studios, Bergen, Norway and mastered by Chris Sansom at  Propeller Mastering, Oslo, Norway.  Guests on the album include Herbrand Larsen  on keyboards (on “Strangers”) and Hans Marius Andersen on trumpet (on “Strangers” and “The Beacon”)

Having just returned from a European tour, Norwegian Avant-Gardists VULTURE INDUSTRIES have announced various festival appearances throughout the summer, as well as a series of dates in their home country, which are set to take place during September and November.   Joining VULTURE INDUSTRIES for the September shows will be DORDEDUH, whilst Dark Essence Records bands ALFAHANNE and SLEGEST will support on some of the dates.  Upcoming  VULTURE INDUSTRIES shows that have been so far confirmed this year as follows:

22 June:  Kilkim Zaibu XV Festival , Varnai, Lithuania
19 July: Dong Open Air, Neukirchen-Vluyn, Germany
21 July: Turning Golem with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company, Metal Days, Tolmin, Slovenia
11 Sept: Hulen, Bergen, Norway (with DORDEDUH)
12 Sept: John Dee, Oslo, Norway (with DORDEDUH and ALFAHANNE)
13 Sept:  Southern Discomfort, Kristiansand, Norway (with DORDEDUH)
04 Oct:  Norwegian Hellcamp, Schweinfurt, Germany
05 Oct:  Prog Power Europe, Baarlo, Netherlands
07 Nov:  Tribute, Sandnes, Norway
08 Nov:  Bestastua, Haugesund, Norway (with SLEGEST and INCULTER)

Formed 10 years ago and with three critically acclaimed full-length albums and a substantial experience in front of live audiences,  VULTURE INDUSTRIES  have gained a reputation as phenomenal crowd-pleasers thanks in part to their very obvious skills as musicians, and in part to the  antics of charismatic frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen.  Nilsen is himself one of Norway’s leading record producers and joint owner of the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, along with ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen and Arve Isdal.

Not content with just limiting themselves to just performing as a band, VULTURE INDUSTRIES have been collaborating extensively  with the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY to bring the “Turning Golem” project to life.  Part concert rooted in in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal and part theatre performance “Turning Golem” has been thrilling audiences throughout Europe for the past couple of years, and will be performed for the last time at this year’s Metal Days Festival.

With an eleven date tour coming up later this month that will take in countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary,  Greece and Slovenia, VULTURE INDUSTRIES, DORDEDUH and BLUTMOND are offering their fans the opportunity to order special personalised tickets for most of the shows, direct from the bands themselves, at no extra cost.   The tickets, which have been specially designed by the Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, will feature the name of the purchaser and the details of the event, and will be signed by all the members of VULTURE INDUSTRIES, DORDEDUH and BLUTMOND.

“We know that many fans keep their tickets to add to their memorabilia collections, so all three bands thought it would be a nice idea to make the tickets a bit more personal and a bit more special,” commented VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ frontman Bjornar E. Nilsen.  ” VULTURE INDUSTRIES and BLUTMOND have been tasked with the sale of the special tickets through our own webshops, and anyone wanting a personalised ticket can order direct from us.  Purchasers  will be sent an email confirmation which they need to bring with them to the venue and use to claim their tickets, which will be waiting for them at the door.  We obviously have a limited number to sell, so if one band sells out, you can order from the other if they have any left”.

Normal tickets will also be available from the usual local retailers, but the personalised tickets can be bought only from the following:

With a career spanning 10 years and with over 100 shows under their belts, the live performances of Norwegian avant-gardists VULTURE INDUSTRIES  are  well known both for their technical skill and the eccentric and somewhat manic antics of frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen, whose on-stage weirdness has garnered a multitude of fans for the band over the years.  VULTURE INDUSTRIES released their third full-length album, “The Tower” on Season of Mist at the end of last year and have collaborated extensively the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY  in the “Turning Golem” project which is part concert rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal and part theatre performance.  The band’s  video for “Lost Among Liars”, made together with CHOIREANU, recently featured at this year’s Kort and Kortkino Film Festival, Sandnes, Norway.  More information about VULTURE INDUSTRIES can be found at http://www.vulture-industries.net/

After 15 years of musical dedication and innovation in NEGURA BUNGET, the founding members and principal song writers Hupogrammos and Sol Faur founded DORDEDUH in 2009. Following the path started with NEGURA BUNGET, DORDEDUH is taking the musical experience further by creating a fusion between a visionary approach of black metal, unusual traditional soundscapes and experimental progressive music. The musical vision is completed by a strong conceptual background that can be revealed by the band’s name itself that combines the word ‘Dor’, which means a yearning for something or a deeply felt the lack of something, together with the term for spirit ‘Duh’. More information about DORDEDUH can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Dordeduh

Since its formation in 2004 BLUTMOND has never been a band that has been happy to limit itself to a formulaic nod in the direction of a particular genre.  Starting out as a Black Metal band and releasing their first full length album “Endzeit” in 2006, BLUTMOND quickly developed a reputation for their insane and provocative live shows, which, whilst raising their profile throughout Europe, also led them to realise that the time had come to create something that was more emotional and honest.   With Code666/Aural Music picking up their sophomore full-length album, “Thirteen Urban Ways 4 Groovy Bohemian Days” appeared in 2010, followed at the end of 2012 by “The Revolution is Dead!”, once again on Code666. These two albums demonstrated that BLUTMOND was obviously forging ahead down a more avant-garde path, but one that definitely has a distinctive edge to it.  More information about BLUTMOND can be found at https://www.facebook.com/blutmond.official

The recent collaboration between Norwegian Avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES and the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY which resulted in the theatrical performance “Turning Golem”, has proved to be a considerable crowd-pleaser, so much so, in fact, that the show has been booking into various venues and festivals both this year and next.  Interest in the show, which is part rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal which features VULTURE INDUSTRIES performing music from their latest release “The Tower”, and part theatre performance which features the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY, has grown, and as a result journalist Andrea Chirulescu has produced a “behind the scenes” documentary which explores the he ideas and concepts behind “Turning Golem”.

Featuring interviews with VULTURE INDUSTRIES frontman Bjornar E. Nilsen, who explains how the whole idea came about and how it developed, as well as with the other members of the band – guitarists Oyvind Madsen and Eyvind Huse, bassist Kyrre Teigen and drummer Tor Helge Gjengedal, who talk about the difference between performing as a band as opposed to being part of a performance ensemble, whilst members of the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY explain their part in the project.  The documentary, which is in English, was filmed in Bergen when “Turning Golem” was recently performed at the Garage, and is currently streaming on the YouTube Channel of the Norwegian webzine Eternal Terror.  It can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/VTSeoKbqBBE

 

2013 has been a busy year for VULTURE INDUSTRIES who released their third full-length album, “The Tower”, their third full-length album on Season of Mist in September.   As well as collaborating with the HAPPY GORILLA DANCE COMPANY, the band also worked closely with Romanian multi-media artist COSTIN CHIOREANU, whose video “Lost Among Liars”, a track from “The Tower”, recently featured at this year’s Kort and Kortkino Film Festival, Sandnes, Norway.  The video can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/Q2mYnayKNd8

 

Next year will also mark the first appearance of VULTURE INDUSTRIES in North America, with the band set to play at the prestigious Music, Film and Interactive Festival, South by Southwest, better known as the SXSW Festival, in Austin, Texas in March.  Other confirmed appearances by VULTURE INDUSTRIES in 2014 include The Headway Festival in Amstelveen, Netherlands, on the 11th January, Prog Power Europe, in Baarlo, Netherlands on the 4th October, and performances of “Turning Golem” at the Boule Noire in Paris, France, on the 21st February and at Metal Days in Tolmin, Slovenia, in July.

“Lost Among Liars”, the video for a track from “The Tower, the new album from Norwegian Avant-garde Metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES, will be featured at this year’s Kort and Kortkino Film Festival, which specialises in short films and which will take place from the 14th to the 17th November in Sandnes, Norway.  The theme of the Festival for this year is “Sound”, and “Lost Among Liars” will be included in the programme on Thursday the 14th, along with a video from fellow Norwegian’s KVELERTAK.  More information about the Kort and Kortkino Film Festival can be found at http://www.kortkino.no/kinokino/public/openIndex?ARTICLE_ID=5050

Romanian multi-media artist COSTIN CHIOREANU is the man behind the video, which is an animated surreal visual critique of today’s society that takes us on a journey through a surreal cityscape populated by people and machines, each with their own different duties and functions. From the vagrant loser, to the dutiful cog in the wheel of industry, to the facade of family life, to the mask salesman, all of them leading us through a story of oppression, elevation of control, and freedom.  Educated at the Bucharest National University of Arts, CHIOREANU has made his mark as a stage artist, musician, animator and movie maker, who, despite his relatively young age, has created the cover art for musicians such as ULVER, ISHAHN, ARCTURUS, AURA NOIR and DARKTHRONE, as well as VULTURE INDUSTRIES themselves.  He is the official artist for the Roadburn Festival 2014, and has been the driving force behind book and album launches.  More information about COSTIN CHIOREANU can be found at http://twilight13media.com/

VULTURE INDUSTRIES recently joined forces with The THE HAPPY GORILLA DANCE company to perform ”Turning Golem”  a show that is part concert rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal and part theatre performance.  The only remaining chance to see “Turning Golem” outside of Norway this year will be on the 26th October at the Phantoms of Pilsen Festival in the Czech Republic.  Those living in Norway however, will not only be able to witness “Turning Golem” at the Garage in Bergen on the 25th October, but also an exhibition of some of COSTIN CHIOREANU’s artwork for “The Tower”.  A promo video for the event can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/vaB1s9YjR6E

 

VULTURE INDUSTRIES will upload five of the pieces of artwork that will be shown at the exhibition onto their Facebook page, one each day leading up to the event.  They can be seen at http://www.facebook.com/vultureindustries

The “Lost Among Liars” video from the VULTURE INDUSTRIES album “The Tower” can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/Q2mYnayKNd8

Each of them tells a story of oppression, restitution, control and freedom.   The video can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/4pw6EmsehGM


Currently in the middle of a European tour alongside fellow Norwegian’s LEPROUS, VULTURE INDUSTRIES have recently been expanding the visual aspect of their stage shows by performing alongside the HAPPY  GORILLA DANCE COMPANY  in “TURNING GOLEM” a project that is part concert rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal and part theatre performance.  Two more shows of TURNING GOLEM are schedule this year – 25 October at the Garage in Bergen, Norway and the 26 October and at the Phantoms Of Pilsen in Pilsen, Czech Republic.
