Dynamic, progressive dark-rock visionaries VULTURE INDUSTRIES have announced a new live theater project with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company. The project, titled “Turning Golem” will combine a unique take on theatrical performances, with live music from VULTURE INDUSTRIES‘ forthcoming record, ‘The Tower‘. “Turning Golem” will be staged on three separate dates: August 17th at the Dark Bombastic Evening in Transylvania, Romania, October 25th at the Garage in Bergen, Norway on and October 26th at Phantoms of Pilsen Festival in the Czech Republic. VULTURE INDUSTRIES will debut five tracks from ‘The Tower‘ during the show. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
Regarding the performance, front-man Bjornar Nilsen said, “This project is a great opportunity for us to cultivate our theatrical side, and to cross breed the howling hounds of hell with the delirious dingoes of drama. Those familiar with the energy and singularity of a VULTURE INDUSTRIES live show and who wonder how much further we can take it, are about to find out.”
“Turning Golem” is a performance based on the premise of our need for meaning in life. A short movie about “Turning Golem” is also in the works.
VULTURE INDUSTRIES previously streamed the title track from The Tower‘. “The Tower” is streaming now via a lyric video here.
VULTURE INDUSTRIES‘ ‘The Tower‘ is slated for release on September 27th (October 1st in North America). ‘The Tower‘ was recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in Bergen. The new album was mixed by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, KATATONIA, DEVIN TOWNSEND, IHSAHN, ENSLAVED). The cover art and track listing for ‘The Tower‘ can be found below.

Through their charismatic musicianship, VULTURE INDUSTRIES quickly earned the reputation of a formidable live act, characterized by the fusion of technical prowess with eccentric, manic performances by front-man Bjørnar Erevik Nilsen. ‘The Tower’ is available for pre order here and the first pressing on CD and LP comes with a limited bonus track!
