VULTURE – Dealin ‘Death album details revealed; Streaming “Malicious Souls” Music Video


On May 21, Vulture will release their new album, Dealin ‘Death, via Metal Blade Records. For a first look at the record, a video of the new single, “Malicious Souls” (filmed and edited by Adrian Guzce), can be viewed below.

When it comes to contemporary thrash, there are few bands that can compete with German Vulture. Establishing their status with the EP Victim To The Blade in 2016 and The Guillotine in 2017, then cementing their reputation with Ghastly Waves And Battered Graves in 2019, they now return with the mighty Dealin ‘Death, one of the most ruthless records ever. the genre has ever seen.

“Take all of our key elements – fierce riffs, midtone changes, aggressive vocals, huge toms, shifting dynamics, horror synths and classical twin guitar harmonies and put them in a mold, then you have ‘Dealin’ Death. ‘”, says guitarist Stéphane Castevet. “The result sounds a bit ‘EP-ish’ to my ears, but it contains new approaches that we’ve never included in our sound until now, like backing vocals with harmonies.”

When it was time for the band to head to the studio, the recording process was handled by two separate collaborators: the album recorded at Monkey Moon Studios in Dortmund by Stallion guitarist Alexander Stöcker, while the production was again managed by Marco Brinkmann at Hellforge Studio.

“This cooperation has turned out to be great!” enthused singer Leo Steeler. “Alex’s way of recording and the whole atmosphere in the studio was quite motivating and inspiring for all of us. Marco, on the other hand, knows exactly what we should sound like and has already become literally the sixth member of the group.”

Working twelve hours a day for ten straight days was quite exhausting, their daily “get up, follow, sleep” schedule, but the effort paid off. “I think ‘Dealin’ Death ‘is the best we’ve ever sounded. The mix itself is absolutely perfect to my ears,” Castevet says. “It’s a lot more direct and less reverberating than its predecessor. It was very important for us this time to take advice from Marco and make all the key elements audible to the listener. The voice is piercing, the basses are present, providing warmth throughout the mix, and the guitars sound the best we’ve ever had, and so do the drums. It’s very natural and dynamic, but gets straight to the point. . “

And now that it’s all over, the band can’t wait to get him out. “We look forward to hearing feedback on this, hope people admire it as much as we do! Once the pandemic is over, we are also looking forward to playing shows and even touring again.”
