Staff review by

In the absence of Arcturus (of the mid era to be more precise), The Dystopia Journals was a big boost on the avant-garde steps upon which their renowned co-country mates reflected their anxious mind. Three years later Bergen starts dancing incoherently once again, The Malefactor's Bloody Register, Vulture Industries' second full-length to date, is reality and it's here to confuse us all with its heretic nature.

  I guess it's okay after all... but the first half truly sucks.. =/ Specially that second track.

  I dissagree with most of you. The whole album is just great. DIfferent from the first one, but still very good. I like more darkier and some kind of Retro atmosphere.

Agree, but cannot rate so high.

Yeah, I see where you're coming from, man. I shouldn't have rated it so high. I was just very impressed by the unique sound of the awesome second half, I must have overlooked the shitty first half. Haha, I will knock it to an eight for now.
