Vulture Kult: Cyanide Hand Grenades of Canadian Rock
If you think there's no edge left in modern rock, you haven't heard Vulture Kult. Conceived in the spring of 2008, Vulture Kult is a child of the cold Canadian prairie wind and snow from where they hail. Born from the discontent of pointless cliques so prevalent in the current music scene, VK forced themselves to take a different road and see where they would end up.
The result is pounding drums, guitar riffs that light up the dark night sky, and vocals that will rip a hole through your chest. Sometimes sleazy, but always raging, Vulture Kult will tell a story that you will understand and enjoy to the fullest.
At the end of the day, it's safe to say that the album is pretty fantastic! “Checking Out” is a track that isn't like any of the others. It's a lot more mellow and calm.“Movie of Me” is another really mellow track. The vocals are uniquely dreamlike. The rhythm adds an almost Kafkaesque backbeat to the song. It isn't like the other songs in the fact that it reminds me of a bunch of stoned, meditative hippies. The track almost puts you in a trance and pays homage to old school rock n' roll from the sixties and seventies.
“Welcome To The Land of The Dead” sounds a lot more like traditional rock to me. I really enjoyed it! It's a powerful track that you can dance to!
