VULTURE INDUSTRIES AND SULPHUR ANNOUNCE “THE TOWER FALLS” TOUR DATES

Avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES and fellow Norwegian Experimental Black/Death Metallers SULPHUR have banded together to perform a series of dates later this month. Going by the name of “The Tower Falls Tour”, a reference to VULTURE INDUSTRIES last album “The Tower”, the tour will kick off with both bands appearing at the Phantoms of Pilsen Festival in the Czech Republic, before moving on to Germany, Hungary and Romania for six further shows. Routing as follows:

21 Oct: Phantoms Of Pilsen, Pilsen (CZ)
22 Oct: Festung, Bitterfeld (DE)
27 Oct: Supersonic, Budapest (HUN)
28 Oct: Casa de Cultura Studentilor, Craiove (RO)
29 Oct: Club Fabrica, Bucharest (RO)
30 Oct: Rock ‘N’ Iasi, Iasi (RO)
31 Oct: Daos Club, Timisoara, (RO)

With over a decade’s worth of live appearances, superb technical skills, and one of the most eccentric frontmen around in the shape of Bjørnar E. Nilsen, VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ highly theatrical on-stage performances never fail to earn the band scores of new followers wherever they play. Add to that three critically acclaimed albums and a series of collaborations in the fields of performance art and video, and you get a band that is always exciting and always has a surprise or two in store for their audience.

Formed in 2000 with current and former members of bands such as GORGOROTH, ENSLAVED, AETERNUS and VULTURE INDUSTRIES, SULHPUR’s demo “A Relic For The Damned” demonstrated the direction the band would be taking, which lies between Death and Black Metal with a progressive twist, but the band lay dormant for a few years, until they returned with a second demo and an altered lineup and eventually signed to Osmose Productions for the release of their debut studio album “Cursed Madness” in 2007.

By 2009 SULPHUR had found their home with Dark Essence Records, and released their critically acclaimed sophomore album “Thorns in Existence”. Now, with a lineup that includes Thomas Skinlo Høyven on Vocals, Øyvind Madsen on guitars, keys and programming, Vegard Hovland on bass, Erik Hæggernes on drums and guitarist Martin Lynn Ytrøy who replaces VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ Eivind Huse, SULPHUR is back with a brand new album that features guest appearances from producer and VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ frontman Bjornar Erevik Nilsen as well as Eivind Huse.
SULPHUR’s next live appearance will be on the 19th February at Blastfest in Bergen, Norway.
