Foscor release entire back catalogue digitally

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 6th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Dark metallers Foscor have released their entire back catalogue digitally, including the band’s first three albums: 2004’s Entrance to the Shadows’ Village,  2007’s The Smile of the Sad Ones and 2009’s Groans to the Guilty. Each album includes lyrics and information. For the first month, the albums will be available for free download from this location. The band’s back catalogue is also available for streaming on YouTube.

With over a decade in the music scene, Foscor recently announced that the band’s natural musical progression and development has led to a change in style away from the traditional 90’s Black Metal mixed with other classical and modern extreme styles, for which they became know.  Breaking free from the restrictions the genre places on bands has enabled Foscor to expand their sound to include shades of Doom and Dark Rock, majestic interludes and a healthy flirtation with Prog.  Frontman Fiar is quick to point out though that fans will still recognise the distinctive Foscor style, which the band have not rejected, but have made better, and which will be very much in evidence in the band’s newly completed  fourth full-length album Those Horrors Wither.

Currently in search of a label for Those Horrors Wither, Foscor have chosen a somewhat unusual direction with the guest appearances on the album.  Instead of the expected vocals or instrumental solos, the notable guests have written and performed connecting passages between the tracks.

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

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 27th November 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

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.

With the impending release of Hecate Enthroned’s latest masterpiece, Virulent Rapture, on the horizon, the legendary black metal coven have posted a track from the album to YouTube as a teaser, so fans can get an idea of what to expect from the new album. The song can be heard below.

The song, To Wield The Hand Of Perdition, is a completely new direction in the band’s career, focusing less on the symphonic melodies – though they do remain –  and more on a crushing assault that will render one’s ears bloody.
