VULTURE - Dealin’ Death LP
When it comes to contemporary thrash there are few bands that can stand toe-to-toe with Germany's Vulture. Establishing their status with 2016's Victim To The Blade EP and 2017's The Guillotine and cementing their reputation with 2019's Ghastly Waves And Battered Graves, they now return with the mighty Dealin' Death, one of the most ruthless records the genre has seen.
Drawing inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe's The Pit And The Pendulum on the title track and the Greek mythos of Medusa inspiring "Gorgon", "Multitudes Of Terror" is a "quick side-trip into the mind of a person suffering from paranoia", looking at horror from all different angles. With music and lyrics in place the band headed into the studio, this time the process handled by two separate collaborators, the album recorded at Monkey Moon Studios in Dortmund by Alexander Stöcker, the guitarist of Stallion, while the production was once more handled by Marco Brinkmann at Hellforge Studio.
