Vulture - The Guillotine (Gold vinyl)
I’ve heard people make the claim that Vulture are like a cross between Mercyful Fate and Judas Priest, I can definitely see where they are coming from, especially when thinking about Priest songs like Painkiller and the vocal style of King Diamond. While I really appreciate how progressive and visionary a band like Vektor is, I’m also totally down for a throwback type album, which admittedly can be a hard thing to pull off. Vulture definitely have the chops and can write good songs, which is really what I’m looking for in thrash. The songs are really well organized and keep you interested all the way through. I especially love the mix of speed and thrash metal, Each song, chalk full of vicious riffs, blazes by, leaving you excited for the next one.
