Vulture from North-Rhine Westphalia have stirred up some decent attention
among Speed- and Thrash fans with their debut EP "Victim To The Blade",
and they are now presenting us with their stunning debut "The Guillotine".
Vulture's take on playing metal can best be described as a sped up Judas
Priest record sprinkled with Bay-Area Thrash and Canadian Speed,
steeped in the atmosphere of early Mercyful Fate/ King Diamond.
Vulture started recording "The Guillotine" in early 2016. The band went to
Hellforge Studio to work with their good old friend and comrade in arms
Marco Brinkmann. Recording the album was hell of a ride, due to the high
pressure everyone felt, but in spite of that, Marco did an amazing job. The
mix is absolutely marvellous and sets a new standard for the genre. Every
riff is like a razor cut, every shriek pierces our eardrums, and every hit of
the snare makes your heart beat faster.
The mastering was done by Patrick W. Engel of Temple Of Disharmony and
suits the mix in the best imaginable way. The artwork for the album was
once again done by the fabulous Velio Josto, an Italian artist, whose razorsharp
realistic kind of style literally cuts the album sleeve in half with a
flashing guillotine blade.
