Product Description

BBC Review

Featuring Bullet for My Valentine guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck and Cancer Bats frontman Liam Cormier alongside Glamour of the Kill guitarist Mike Kingswood, former Rise to Remain bassist Joe Copcutt and Pitchshifter drummer Jason Bowld, AxeWound find themselves in the dubious super group category.

As members of two of the most exciting, energetic and polarising bands to have burst onto the metal scene in recent years, Tuck and Cormier’s debut collaboration has been both hotly anticipated and intensely scrutinised. Does it deliver more than just the sum of its parts, or is it simply a haphazard mash-up of sounds?

From the outset, the sheer intensity of Vultures sets it apart from any of the musicians’ so-called day jobs. Cancer Bats fans will get hooked in by Cormier’s visceral, throat-ripping roars, but BFMV followers – particularly those who’ve come on board since the band graduated into arenas – may find the all-out aural assault overwhelming.

In an effort to capture what Tuck calls the “don’t give a f***” attitude of Pantera and Slipknot – two of his main inspirations – the band worked fast, recording everything in under two weeks with nothing written or rehearsed beforehand. The results are darker and edgier than anything Tuck or Cormier have previously put their names to.

Staccato riffs and thudding rhythms thrash and crash in a breathless barrage of brutality. To the obvious Pantera and Slipknot influences add a smattering of post-modern Slayer and Roots-era Sepultura.

It’s not all fast and furious of course; Tuck and Cormier’s combined ear for melody is strong, and the likes of Exorchrist and the pseudo-epic Collide offer at least a little respite. Lyrically, it’s fairly predictable state-of-the-world and personal empowerment stuff, although Cormier clearly has the charisma to carry it off. Tuck shines through a seemingly endless series of frenetic guitar solos; a nod perhaps to the far-flung days when metal was virtually mainstream.

Vultures isn’t an album we’ll be talking about 20 years from now, but for thrills, spills and hair-raising heaviness, it gets the job done in style.

Format: Audio CD
A nice slice of metal from members of other established bands. A fun little album it is too, nice riffs give you the chance to do a lot of headbanging although it must be said that this is probably one of those bands who sound a bit average until you have a beer in hand, it isn't particularly clever but I don't think it is really supposed to be.

`Vultures' quick build and turn of speed kicks the album off in fine and violent style. There is also a nice serrated edge to everything which gives it all an added punch, which is always welcome. The short snappy `Victim of the System' highlights the benefit of a slightly scuzzy sound; it's just a bit of a shame that it is followed by the more smoothed over `Cold' which feels a bit like the song designed to pull in the latter day Bullet fans, same with `Collide'. In general most of the songs have a big enough groove to make them perfect head bang fodder.

It may sound a bit bizarre to call an album which contains songs about decapitation, stocking up on booze and drugs to survive the nuclear holocaust, and having sex with Satan 'rollicking good fun', but that's what Vultures is - really good fun, both in how it was made, and in how you feel while listening to it. Sure, it's not deep, it's not trying to tell you anything, or mean anything, but it's FUN.

Why is it fun? The guitars play a large part - Matt Tuck's stereotypical layered riffs fit the thick crunchy guitar sound used on Vultures quite well, and with plenty of breaks and buildups you'll be hearing an awful lot of them. The bass kinda gets lost however - you can only hear it a couple of times. But the drums, the drums! Where has Bowld been all this time? The guy whacks away like Tre Cool swallowed the Rev's soul and then got high on cocaine and somehow parthogenetically gave birth to him! Post Apocalyptic Party is a highlight in this regard.

Lyrically, it's not brilliant, but it's good enough - full of anger and hatred well expressed by Liam Cormier's shrieks and Matt Tuck's sibilant hisses. Only once does it achieve something that's truly beautiful on Collide, but that's enough.

In short, if you're thinking of buying this album, do. It's loud, it's brash, it's coarse, but like those action movies with Arnie from the 80s, it's a great time.

From the opening song you know you are in for something special. Great mix, Great riffs, Great musicianship and Great attitude throughout.
The songs themselves are suprisingly moving (the head that is) for an album that you may consider D.I.Y. (recorded in 2 weeks, no rehersals etc)
It sounds like this has been refined for months rather than days.
The dual vocals work really well,Liams vocal attack punctuated by death metal growls really impress.
You can certainly hear elements of Pantera on here and Matts Guitar tone is amazing
Overall a great album that will not disapoint
Just a shame that this not their day job as i would love to hear more from them, sooner rather than later

this "supergroup" are amazing all members contribute in my opinion more than they do in their other bands, i mean matt tuck has put alot more effort into axewound than bullets last " excretion " to put it bluntly, anyway excellent album with all the elements falling into place a mix of clean and screaming vocals, heavy and melodic guitar with a few amazing solos and the drums and bass fit in perfectly! in my opinion this is one of the best new bands ive heard and it helps that i saw them live before buying this, the live performance was outstanding!! anyone reading this that doesnt have this album buy it listen to it and i doubt you will regret it !! roll on the next axewound album!!
