BAND Vulture - High Speed Metal
ALBUM DEALIN’ DEATH
LABEL Metal Blade Records
OUT May 21st, 2021
OUR RATING 90/100
Third album, the second on METAL BLADE, by VULTURE out one week ago.
The title is DEALIN’DEATH and it’s another confirm of the continuous growth of the German band.
Yes..old-school speed HM but also many other things, thanks to a better production that exalts the trademarks of their sound.
This new album, again powered by another amazing cover layout, is opened by an intro, DANGER IS IMMINENT, followed by MALICIOUS SOULS, a new classic for the band, enriched by gorgeous solo parts involving two axes of the band.
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS is another brilliant tune, speed hm with KING DIAMOND influences, while GORGON is definitely one of our favorite.
STAR-CROSSED CITY shows a great structure, reminding something from label mates SATAN, while the second part is opened by powerful FLEE THE PHANTOM.
They go on with BELOW THE MAUSOLEUM, which provides also classic HM/thrash elements, and the title track, a mighty song that you’ll appreciate.
Last two aces are relentless MULTITUDES OF TERROR and THE COURT OF CALIGULA, while Classic HM elements prevail.
NO DOUBT..ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR..A MUST-HAVE.
