On other news, VULTURE INDUSTRIES just commenced a new live theater project with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company. The project, titled “Turning Golem”, is a unique take on theatrical performance combined with music from 'The Tower'. "Turning Golem" is being staged on three separate dates: August 17th at the Dark Bombastic Evening in Transylvania, Romania, October 25th at the Garage in Bergen, Norway on and October 26th at Phantoms of Pilsen Festival in the Czech Republic. “Turning Golem” features five tracks from 'The Tower' during the show. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
'The Tower' is slated for release on September 27th (October 1st in North America). The album was recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in Bergen, mixed by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, KATATONIA, DEVIN TOWNSEND, IHSAHN, ENSLAVED). Here are the cover art and track listing for 'The Tower':
Through their charismatic musicianship, VULTURE INDUSTRIES quickly earned the reputation of a formidable live act, characterised by the fusion of technical prowess with eccentric, manic performances by frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen. 'The Tower' is available for pre order on Season of Mist’s e-shop, and will be released on CD and LP. The limited first pressings of the 'The Tower' will include a limited bonus track.
“Vulture Industries come across as complete oddballs. They are the mad hatter’s tea party irregulars with an “Alice In Wonderland” surrealist brand of dark metal cabaret” -Terrorizer Magazine
