Vulture Industries stream behind the scene documentary and confirm first US appearance

Turning Golem which is the theatrical product of the collaboration between Norwegian post-avant-garde metallers Vulture Industries and the Happy Gorilla Dance Company has proven to be a crowd pleaser, to the point where the band have been booked to play various venues and festivals this year and next. Interest in the show, which is part rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal which features Vulture Industries performing music from their latest release The Tower, and part theatre performance which features the Happy Gorilla Dance Company, has grown, and as a result journalist Andrea Chirulescu has produced a “behind the scenes” documentary which explores the ideas and concepts behind Turning Golem.

Featuring interviews with Vulture Industries frontman Bjornar E. Nilsen, who explains how the whole idea came about and how it developed, as well as with the other members of the band – guitarists Oyvind Madsen and Eyvind Huse, bassist Kyrre Teigen and drummer Tor Helge Gjengedal, who talk about the difference between performing as a band as opposed to being part of a performance ensemble, whilst members of the Happy Gorilla Dance Company explain their part in the project.  The documentary, which is in English, was filmed in Bergen when Turning Golem was recently performed at the Garage, and is currently streaming on the YouTube Channel of the Norwegian webzine Eternal Terror. The documentary can be viewed down below.

2013 has proven to be a busy year for Vulture Industries who released their third album The Tower via Season of Mist in September, this year. As well as collaborating with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company, the band also worked closely with Romanian multi-media artist Costin Chioreanu, whose video Lost Among Liars, a track from The Tower, recently featured at this year’s Kort and Kortkino Film Festival in Sandnes, Norway. The video can be viewed below:

Next year will also mark the first appearance of Vulture Industries in North America, with the band set to play at the prestigious Music, Film and Interactive Festival, South by Southwest, better known as the SXSW Festival, in Austin, Texas in March.  Other confirmed appearances by Vulture Industries in 2014 include The Headway Festival in Amstelveen, Netherlands, on the 11th January, Prog Power Europe, in Baarlo, Netherlands on the 4th October, and performances of Turning Golem at the Boule Noire in Paris, France, on the 21st February and at Metal Days in Tolmin, Slovenia, in July.
