Hello mate and thank you very much for the interview!! We are a death metal band from GREECE formed 3 years ago by our guitarist George Natsoulis when he left his previous band Resurgency. We had some changes in our line up until the previous year but now we are in a complete and solid line up and ready to desecrate humanity with some deadly music.
2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the demo?
The sound of the demo is raw, aggressive and concrete as it should be in every death metal DEMO. We only wanted the right balance between the sounds of the instruments in the recording and it turned out to be solid and we were satisfied.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Great question !! I am always happy and glad to talk about our lyrical themes!! Well, we like blood, tons of blood, stories with bloodshed for example, an ancient tribe of cannibals were performing some rituals where they were kidnapping people and have them smothered on the altar and slowly peeling their skin off because with this way they summoned their gods, this story is in our track Ritual Excarnation. Of course we love stories of serial killers like our track Murder Castle which is talking about the insane murderer Herman Mudgett. Also we 1. love to transmit darkness and claustrophobic horror through our lyrics like the track Entangled In The Webs Of Fear and of course we love to talk about true but disgusting life stories like a mother who were suffering from paranoia and hallucinations and see saw her child as a monster and stabbed it to death and when she recovered and came in sober state she killed herself, this story is represented in our track Void Of Hallucinating Torment. That’s all about our subjects and lyrical themes.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Vultur'?
Vultur is the latin word for Vulture. Vultures are the birds - scavengers who stalking to eat you without mercy. Always better when you are dead because they love to feed from rotten corpses and dead flesh. So for us this is a pure ‘’death metal’’ fact, an ugly and monstrous flying scavenger descending to devour your dead skin !!! VULTUR !!!
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
I will disappoint you in this question because so far we didn’t have the chance to play live but we will extremely soon!
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Yes we are discussing to play in some local gigs and we will inform everyone through our page!
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
We had great response from everyone who listened the demo and generally we received very good comments in reviews and from death metal maniacs.
8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that the band members are a part of?
Basically all the Vultur members except George Natsoulis and Alex Kalfakis are playing with the death metal band Ectoplasma and Alex Kalfakis is playing with his other black metal band Akrotheism and also George Natsoulis with Giannis Grim are preparing a killer grind/death metal project which you will be informed soon!
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
For now we are trying to finish the final stage of mixing of our upcoming full album and soon to give some live shows!
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Oh fukk !! Difficult question!! As a band our common influences in the music we play are bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Death, Immolation, Demigod, Vader etc… And about nowadays listening I can tell you only my personal soundtracks, hmm let’s see… Blood Incantation, Cruciamentum, Timeghoul, Indesinence, Chthe’ilist, Sulphur Aeon and for sure Triumvir Foul got my attention very much! Great bands who totally have my ears smothered on their albums!
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Basically we are under a spell of some sort of curse to don’t have the luxury of killing time!! We all work a lot and play in other bands too and George Natsoulis is married with two great kids. So, not a lot of time for other interests, only music and work apparently.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
We would like to thank everyone who keeps supporting death metal when all common humans see us as repulsive monsters!! We will continue to spread death metal like a virus and we really hope to get infected very rapidly!! Hails !!
