Guest review by

How is it possible for a band to use so many artifices already worked by other bands, and yet sound so unique? Vulture Industries must be the most perfect example for an answer. Considering Metal as a sort of soup, this album would be filled with weird ingredients, generating a thick mixture of symphony, experimental, progressive, doom and black elements, but so properly distributed that the taste is not compromised. Leaving to us listeners solely the pleasant avant-garde sweet flavor.

Vulture Industries - Grim Apparitions

I think this quotation from the band's song speaks far more about this album than I any words I could ever put.
