Classic and raging heavy metal from Italy. This is metal in its purest form. Their 2016 cult gem EP, for the first time on tape. Limited to 200 copies.
Metal Temple: Heavy Metal at its best, the way the instrumental intro links with the opening riff constructs the ambience necessary for one to be selflessly involved with this EP from beginning to end. Based in Lazio, Italy, after their 2015 Demo, VULTURES VENGEANCE released their first EP last year entitled where the time dwelt in. Founded by Matt Savage along with another two ex-members of NECROMANCER, VULTURES REVENGE display an amazing prowess for Power Metal and everything it stands for, hoping that they will envision many, many albums, and be around for many, many years, this EP is a heartfelt depiction of passion turned into music.
Iron Fist: These Italians, after a demo last year, present a mini-album of five tracks (including an intro) and what you get here is epic and dark traditional metal inspired by ’80s US power metal, Iron Maiden (of course) and the early years of Running Wild and Blind Guardian. Add to this a brave dose of obscurity, from the production to the way they want to approach their music, lyrics and the band’s image, and you have something that we could describe as “future cult”.
Brutalism: an obscure, and quite inventive sounding, trip down heavy metal lane. In many instances this covers the traditional heavy metal genre, however, they do use a few other elements to create a nice breath of fresh air into this genre of music.
MetalUtopia: a rocky debut album, but a knowledgeable metal head will be able to pull a few precious stones out of this diamond in the rough. Vultures Vengeance is one band that I’m going to keep my eye on,
