VULTURE INDUSTRIES - Behind The Scenes Video Documentary Online

  • Print

The recent collaboration between Norwegian avant-garde metallers Vulture Industries and the Happy Gorilla Dance Company which resulted in the theatrical performance “Turning Golem”, has proved to be a considerable crowd-pleaser, so much so, in fact, that the show has been booking into various venues and festivals both this year and next. Interest in the show, which is part rooted in the heavier segment of experimental/progressive metal which features Vulture Industries performing music from their latest release The Tower, and part theatre performance which features the Happy Gorilla Dance Company, has grown, and as a result journalist Andrea Chirulescu has produced a “behind the scenes” documentary which explores the ideas and concepts behind "Turning Golem".
It features interviews with Vulture Industries frontman Bjornar E. Nilsen, who explains how the whole idea came about and how it developed, as well as with the other members of the band – guitarists Oyvind Madsen and Eyvind Huse, bassist Kyrre Teigen and drummer Tor Helge Gjengedal, who talk about the difference between performing as a band as opposed to being part of a performance ensemble, whilst members of the Happy Gorilla Dance Company explain their part in the project. The documentary, which is in English, was filmed in Bergen when "Turning Golem" was recently performed at the Garage. Watch the video documentary below. Link
