Well known for their wide appeal and their entertainingly theatrical, and hugely accessible stage antics, VULTURE INDUSTRIES recently celebrated their 20 years of existence with a special anniversary show in Bergen, Norway. Knowing that only a relative handful of their fans would be able to witness the show first-hand, the band made sure that their many fans world-wide would not miss out on this very special occasion by recording the whole event.
Produced by Jarle Jovda Moe, who also made the “New Lords of Light” video, and featuring a multi camera and multi track production, the show included not only favourites from the band’s previous releases, but also tracks from the upcoming fifth full-length studio album “Ghosts from the Past”. It is, in other words the perfect opportunity for fans old and new to take stock of how far the band has come over the years and reminisce about the past.
The show, will be streamed in three separate segments, the first being today, the 26th May at 20:00 Central European Time, and can be watched on the Band’s YouTube channel, below. Parts 2 and 3 of the show will be shown at 20:00 on the 03 June and 10 June respectively.
“Ghosts from the Past” itself will be released on Dark Essence Records on the 16th June, and is easily VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ strongest album to date. It marks a new direction for the band, one that leans towards the harder side of rock, and draws upon a wide range of influences. However, the quintessential VULTURE INDUSTRIES sound that makes the band so distinctive is still there for all to hear.
Recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios “Ghosts from the Past” was produced by the band and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street. With album artwork by Kim Holm and artwork for the singles by Costin Chioreanu, track listing is as follows:
- New Lords of Light
- Saturn Devouring His Young
- This Hell is Mine
- Right Here in the Dark
- A Strangers Curse
- Tyrants Weep Alone
“Ghosts from the Past” will be released in CD, Digital and Vinyl formats and is now available to pre-order from the foillowing:

A video for the single “This Hell is Mine” by artist Kim Holm, which is especially interesting because it is a time-lapse insight into the work he put into creating the album artwork for “Ghosts from the Past”, can be seen at https://youtu.be/9uL2YfDshuY
