Dynamic, schizophrenic metal outfit VULTURE INDUSTRIES are releasing a video documentary about their collaboration with Romanian artist COSTIN CHIOREANU to create their special performance titled “The Babylon Spiral”. “The Babylon Spiral” will be performed in Oslo, Norway on April 2 as part of Inferno Festival. A trailer for the documentary can be viewed here:
The original artworks of COSTIN CHIOREANU, including designs for MAYHEM, VULTURE INDUSTRIES and GRAVE among others are available here.
In addition to the Inferno Festival show, the band have added two dates in Spain with progressive supergroup SOEN. A full list of dates is below.
VULTURE INDUSTRIES are touring in support of their critically acclaimed album, ‘The Tower’. Revolver Magazine described ‘The Tower’ as a “…tightly coiled, often ambitious exercise in weirdly cheery-sounding, prog-leaning metal. It’s book-ended by two exceptional tracks: the title track, a soaring and showy materialism takedown (“Each man is what he owns/Whether or not one truly exists is a question of having things”), and the Faith-No-More-goes-to-the-circus closer “Blood Don’t Eliogabalus”, and the album decorated a host of “Best of 2013” lists (Metalsucks writers, Heavy Blog is Heavy, Metal Descent, Blackmetal and Brews, Sputnik Music, and more).
