Vulture Industries' sophomore set for release on vinyl for the first time

(Dark Essence Records)

Vulture Industries' sophomore full-length set for release on vinyl for the first time
 

To celebrate the 11th Anniversary of its original release, Dark Essence Records is set to make  "The Malefactor's Bloody Register", the sophomore full-length album from Norwegian Progressive Metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES, available in vinyl format for the first time ever.

The vinyl edition of "The Malefactor's Bloody Register" has had a complete makeover because, what was meant to be a simple re-mix, produced a master that sounded worse than the original.  The album has therefore been "re-mixed, un-mixed, re-mastered and un-mastered", in order to meet the exacting standards that VULTURE INDUSTRIES place on themselves.

Originally recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios by Bjørnar Erevik Nilsen, and mastered by Brian Gardner (ISIS, NIN, David Bowie), "The Malefactor's Bloody Register" includes guest appearances from  Herbrand Larsen (ex-ENSLAVED / ex-AUDREY HORNE) on Hammond organ, Øyvind Rødset (formerly of UGRESS) on saxophone, Audun Berg Selfjord (FUNIN) on cello and Kristin Hunter (ex-Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra) on viola. 

The cover art for "The Malefactor's Bloody Register" is designed by Maja Markegård and features Helge Jordal on the cover, making it the second time that the actor appears on a VULTURE INDUSTRIES release.  One of Norway's most respected character actors, Jordal's collaboration with VULTURE INDUSTRIES started when he heard "The Dystopia Journals" and agreed to work with the band.  This time he takes on the guise of the Hangman, brandishing a law book and clutching a noose, in an album that takes a satirical look at the theme of crime and punishment from the perspective of both the criminal and the hangman. 

Track listing for "The Malefactor's Bloody Register" is as follows:

Side A:
Crooks and sinners
Race for the gallows
The bolted door
Of branded blood

Side B:
I hung my heart on Harrow square
This cursed flesh
Hangman's hatch
Crowning the cycle

With a career spanning over a decade and with hundreds  of shows under their belts, VULTURE INDUSTRIES  are  well known both for the technical skill of their lineup, which comprises Øyvind Madsen and  Eivind Huse on Guitars, Tor Helge Gjengedal on Drums, Kyrre Teigen on Bass and Bjørnar E. Nilsen on Vocals,  and the eccentric and somewhat manic antics of frontman Nilsen, whose on-stage weirdness has garnered a multitude of fans for the band over the years. 

"The Malefactor's Bloody Register" will released on the 5th March 2021 and will be available in red in black coloured vinyl. It can now be pre-ordered from:
