The element of horror has long been synonymous with Vulture and once more takes center stage on Dealin' Death. From the intro track to the lyrics and the layout they indulged in everything they love about classic horror stories, movies and art. "It's a niche we feel most comfortable in and inspired by. Working out every little detail is always fascinating, making it feel as authentic as possible while combining it all under the Vulture banner and giving it a new spin," says bassist Andreas Axetinctör. Drawing inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe's The Pit And The Pendulum on the title track and the Greek mythos of Medusa inspiring "Gorgon", "Multitudes Of Terror" is a "quick side-trip into the mind of a person suffering from paranoia", looking at horror from all different angles. With music and lyrics in place the band headed into the studio, this time the process handled by two separate collaborators, the album recorded at Monkey Moon Studios in Dortmund by Alexander Stöcker, the guitarist of Stallion, while the production was once more handled by Marco Brinkmann at Hellforge Studio. "This cooperation turned out great!" enthuses vocalist Leo Steeler. "Alex's way of recording and the whole studio atmosphere was pretty motivating and inspiring for all of us. Marco on the other hand knows exactly how we should sound and already became literally the sixth member of the band." Working twelve-hour days for ten days straight was pretty grueling, their daily schedule "get up, track, sleep", but the effort paid off. "I think Dealin' Death is the best we've ever sounded. The mix itself is absolutely flawless to my ears," says Castevet. "It's way more direct and less reverb-soaked than its predecessor. It was very important for us this time, to take advice from Marco and make all key elements audible for the listener. The vocals sound piercing, the bass is present, delivering warmth throughout the whole mix, and the guitars have the best sound we've ever had, and the same goes for drums. It's very natural and dynamic, but straight to the point." And now with everything done the band are eager to get it out there. "We can't wait to get feedback for it, hopefully people will admire it as much as we do! Once this whole pandemic thing is over we also can't wait to play shows and even tour again. We've got many festivals booked for the summer and we really hope they all happen."
