VULTURE INDUSTRIES Recording Sophomore Album

Norwegian avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES have entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to their 2007 debut full-length album, "The Dystopia Journals". The new CD is expected to contain seven tracks, and come in at somewhere between 40 and 45 minutes in length. As is usual with VULTURE INDUSTRIES, they will be using the Conclave and Earshot Studios, which is owned by the band's frontman Bjornar E. Nilsen, who, aside from his vocal duties with VULTURE INDUSTRIES and BLACK HOLE GENERATOR, is also a producer.

Commenting on the new album, Nilsen said, "It feels great to be working with the new material and the vibe in the studio has been really good so far. The songs are quite long this time, with the shortest one clocking in at five minutes. We're really excited about the new material and feel that we have stumbled on a sound that is distinctly our own."

VULTURE INDUSTRIES is based in Bergen and is part of the prolific local music scene. The band's line up is a veritable "who's who" of black and extreme metal musicians. Aside from Nilsen himself on vocals, synths and programming, bandmembers include guitarists √ėyvind Madsen (SULPHUR, ex-ENSLAVED, session guitar for DEATHCON) and Eivind Huse (SULPHUR, ex-SYRACH), Kyrre Teigen on bass and Tor Helge Gjengedal (MALICE IN WONDERLAND, ex-SULPHUR, ex-TAAKE) on drums. Assisting with the production are Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) and Arve Isdal (ENSLAVED, AUDREY HORNE).

So far, most of the drum tracks for the new album, which is scheduled for release on Dark Essence Records in April in Norway and May in Europe, have been recorded, and regular updates and photos from the studio sessions will be posted on the band's MySpace page.
