Bjørnar E. Nilsen, the vocalist of Norwegian Dark Progressive Rockers VULTURE INDUSTRIES suffered a mishap during the band’s concert in Munich this week, when he fell off a stack of beer crates.

The singer, known for his penchant for standing on top of things that were not necessarily built for that particular task had this to say:  “Yeah, I was a bit sloppy with planning the moment.  I’d built a stack of crates from different brands, and needless to say they didn’t lock together properly, so when I tried to climb on top of them the whole thing gave way and the crates fell into the audience”.

A fan watching the spectacle commented: “It was all pretty undramatic really, but it did have a certain slapstick charm to it.  What alarmed me more than being buried under a pile of crates was the smell of that guy’s stage clothes.  With all that running around and sweating he really should get them washed more often.  He stinks!!

The band recently produced a promo video for the tour which can be seen  at
VULTURE INDUSTRIES’  fourth full-length album ‘Stranger Times’, which was released on Season of Mist in Digipack CD, Digital and various Vinyl formats on the 22 September,  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 the band 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 artwork by Costin Chioreanu, tracklisting on “Stranger Times” is as follows:

1. Tales of Woe (4:37)
2. As the World Burns (5:22)
3. Strangers (7:10)
4. The Beacon (5:35)
5. Something Vile (4:17)
6. My Body, My Blood (2:27)
