Vulture Industries Deeper ArtworkPR

Norway’s VULTURE INDUSTRIES are set to release a new single, titled “Deeper”, On Dark Essence Records.   A video for the single, by long-time Romanian artist and long-time collaborator Costin Choireanu, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/zSz3BIUrjT4


A
“Deeper” tells the story of man’s insatiable greed for more, as symbolised by the miners digging all the way to Hell.  Starting out with a haunting trumpet solo, the track mixes a Spaghetti Western vibe with the rhythmic and melodic drive of a large-scale rock opus. Musically “Deeper» nods in the direction of such diverse acts as Ennio Morricone, Type O Negative, The Beatles and Lee Hazlewood, but at the same time there is also a solid dose of rock and metal, in the signature style of VULTURE INDUSTRIES.

Vulture Industries PR

VULTURE INDUSTRIES frontman, Bjørnar E. Nilsen had this to say about the origins of the song:

It was one of those scorching summer days of 2018. The parched grass had turned the fields the colour of old paper, and the sun, at its zenith, was mercilessly searing our skin. Thirsty, hungry, and with tongues swelling, we had just missed the ferry crossing and could taste our hopes turn to ashes in our mouths. Trying to remain calm, but steadily feeling the building pressure of desperation, as a boiler ready to blow, we waited in line. Then suddenly the one year old in the back seat broke the silence chanting AHUM, AHUM, AHUM, AHUM! Overcome by what felt like divine inspiration but might very well have been sent from the depths of Hell, I started drumming on the dashboard. DUM, DADADUM, DADADUM, DADADUMDADUMDADUM.”

Printed on Limited Edition 7″ green vinyl to coincide with the Strange Rain tour with HELHEIM, MADDER MORTEM and CAELESTIA, which kicks off  on the 25th April, “Deeper” will be out on Digital platforms on the 23rd of April.  Strictly limited to 500 copies, the 7″ also features the a live performance of  “The Benevolent Pawn”  recorded at USF in Bergen.

Vulture Industries LogoPR

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!!

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)
7. Gentle Touch of a Killer (5:03)
8. Screaming Reflections (5:32)
9. Midnight Draws Near (5:20)

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”)

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)
7. Gentle Touch of a Killer (5:03)
8. Screaming Reflections (5:32)
9. Midnight Draws Near (5:20)

VULTURE INDUSTRIES are also set to embark on a series of live appearances and a European tour, which, according to the band  “Will  be our most ambitious tour to date and we are of course looking enthusiastically forward to visit all of our favourite places and people again. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to present material from our new album ‘Stranger Times’ in concert format. We will of course supplement this with favourites from our catalogue.

With their ninth full-length album “landwarijaR” earning huge plaudits for Norwegian Viking Metallers HELHEIM, the band have now released a second video from the album, this time for the track “Ymr”, which can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/ikkKoB56JVM


x
Like the preceding video for the track “Baklengs mot intet”, “Ymr” was directed by Guilherme Henriques, and this time the band  concentrates on live footage filmed at Inside Live & Rock Café bt Mathis Backe interspersed with film of some of the glorious scenery that surrounds HELHEIM’s home town of Bergen.

“Ymr” also has a theme running through it, one that is in contrast to that expressed in the “Baklengs mot intet”.  As HELHEIM’s V’gandr explains:

“With “Ymr” Helheim explores the terrain that might result from the  complete enlightenment of knowledge. The tree of life is the symbol of this path and you may wonder if this enlightenment is of a positive or of a negative energy. When the One with the one eye closes it, that is when we must open up ours and see what lies ahead.  “Ymr” is the primal scream, the essence of man and to grow from there you have to climb. Whereas “Baklengs mot intet” showed no hope in its cloak of negativity, “Ymr” might kindle a tiny spark – but that’s up to the eye of the beholder or should I say, the ears of the listener.”

Helheim YmrPR.png

With music by by H’grimnir and V’gandr,  lyrics by V’gandr and  artwork by H’grimnir, “landawarijaR”   was recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, and produced by Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED).  Artists  performing guest vocals on the album include William Hut, Morten Egeland (NARROWHEAD), Pehr Skjoldhammer (ALFAHANNE),  Bjornar E Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and Ottorpedo.

Tracklisting for “landawarijaR” is as follows:

1. Ymr
2. Baklengs mot intet
3. Rista blodørn
4. landawarijaR
5. Ouroboros
6. Synir af heidindomr
7. Enda-dagr

The video is by the renowned Romanian artist and designer Costin Chioreanu, with whom Nilsen has a long-standing working relationship not only in terms of album artwork, but also videos and live performance.

Commenting on the video Nilsen said: “I find the video to be a disturbing piece.  Costin Chioreanu has dived into the abyss of our collective consciousness and has emerged with images of our destruction.  The joint annihilation of all life.  Future generations sacrificed upon the altar of Moloch.  A massacre of innocents from beyond the womb in the hope that we will be blessed with earthly pleasures in return”.

Of all the tracks on “A Requiem for Terra”, “Moloch” happens to be Nilsen’s  favourite, and one which he recently described as acting as the centerpiece for the entire album.  It also features a guest appearance from TAAKE and ORKAN guitarist Gjermund Fredheim.

black-hole-generator-pr2

“A Requiem for Terra” is the long-awaited debut full-length  album from BLACK HOLE GENERATOR.  It follows on from the band’s first ever release, the “Black Karma” MCD, and was ten long years in the making due to Nilsens commitments not only to VULTURE INDUSTRIES, but also to his career  as one of Norway’s most successful producers, working with bands such as TAAKE and HELHEIM, as well as being one of the people behind the Dark Essence Records and Karisma Records labels.

It is an album that has delighted many guitar fans with guitarist Arve Isdal (ENSLAVED, AUDREY HORNE) being joined on the album by the previously-mentioned Gjermund Fredheim, who guests on three of the tracks, and  Dag Terje Andersen, who provides additional guitars.   Artwork for  “A Requiem for Terra” is also by Costin Chioreanu,  tracklisting is as follows:

  1. A Requiem for Terra
  2. Titan
  3. Moloch
  4. Beneath a Chemical Sky
  5. Emerging Pantheon
  6. Earth Eater
  7. Spiritual Blight

http://decibelmagazine.com/blog/2016/11/14/track-premiere-black-hole-generator-moloch

BLACK HOLE GENERATOR’s creator Bjornar E. Nilsen had this to say about the track “Moloch was one of the first tracks that was finalized for the album.  It is one of my personal favourites from “A Requiem for Terra” and it acts as the centerpiece for the album. It embodies the album’s bleak atmosphere which spans most of its dynamic range.  Starting off as a mesmerizing hymn to the deity Moloch, it is broken up by frantic, furious parts tearing everyone from  their mantric slumbers.  On this track I was lucky to get Gjermund from TAAKE and ORKAN on board on lead guitars, and his contribution really shines on this one!”

It’s been ten years since the appearance of BLACK HOLE GENERATOR’S debut release, the “Black Karma” MCD, and given Nilsen’s standing not only as VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ frontman, well known for his idiosyncratic vocals and eccentric stage performances, but also as one of Norway’s most successful producers, working with bands such as TAAKE and HELHEIM, as well as one of the people behind the Dark Essence Records and Karisma Records labels, the delay is hardly surprising.

“A Requiem for Terra”, will delight many guitar fans with guitarist Arve Isdal (ENSLAVED, AUDREY HORNE) being joined on the album by the previously-mentioned Gjermund Fredheim, who guests on three of the tracks, and  Dag Terje Andersen, who provides additional guitars.   Artwork for  “A Requiem for Terra” is by the Romanian artist and designer Costin Chioreanu, tracklisting is as follows:

  1. A Requiem for Terra
  2. Titan
  3. Moloch
  4. Beneath a Chemical Sky
  5. Emerging Pantheon
  6. Earth Eater
  7. Spiritual Blight
