Since the band's birth in 1990, a lot of members has joined
and departed from the band. The first line-up collapsed in '92, right
after receiving a deal from Warmaster
rec., and only Northgrove and Ravenloft continued.
The following 3 years was filled with both name and line-up changes,
before VULTURE LORD was enthroned in '95. The two infernal souls teamed up
with Trondr Nefas from Urgehal, and the malignant trio recorded the
Exorcism of the Holy Ghost tape in '97, and was shortly after signed by
Head Not Found.
VULTURE LORD were set to record their debut in '99, but because of HNF's
economical situation, things were once again fucked up. At that time, the
band had already recorded the Desire for the Dead tape for personal use,
and this was then spread to a handful of labels. Although, VULTURE LORD
received offers from several well-known labels, they decided to sign with
the small, newstarted Norwegian label, Flesh For Beast.
Due to Vulture Lord's several line-up changes, the album was postponed for
years, but the time finally came in the winter of 2001, as VULTURE LORD
entered the studio on the 26th of November to record their Profane Prayer
(Originally entitled "Emancipate the Dogs of War") full-length. Apart from
Northgrove and Nefas, Vulture Lord were joined by drummer Uruz and
guitarist Diabolus (aka Ravenloft). In June 2003, Endechrist entered the
band as a bassist, and the line-up was fulfilled. Due to various delays,
the album wasn't released until September 2003.
A year later, Sept. '04, the band recorded 4 tracks, and in January 2005,
the band was signed for a 7" and album release on Agonia, and the
Blasphemy 7" EP (originally entitled "Summon the Warhorde") was released
in March '06.
Tracks for the Desecration Rite album (originally entitled "Stillborn
Messiah") were written, but never recordedů.until 2019.
After laying dormant for years, Vulture Lord will finally return with a
vengeance! Hungrier and more hateful than ever before, featuring a brand
new line-up of ancient souls, uniting the dark pits of Norway, USA and
Mexico into the blackest chasm.
Hail! Malphas! Hail Enzifer! Hail Hella! Hail Blackthorn!
Hail War! Hail Death! Hail the Underground!
"We were the Serpent in
the garden of Eden....
We were the spear penetrating Nazarene flesh....
We are the flames eating Jehovah's temples....
We are the bullets in Christian skulls....
Vultures from beyond the grave....
Lords of blasphemy!"
