Norway's HELHEIM and VULTURE INDUSTRIES, bands that between them feature current and former members of BLACK HOLE GENERATOR, SULPHUR, ENSLAVED, DEATHCON, SYRACH, MALICE IN WONDERLAND and TAAKE, will once again hit the road together, this time for a tour of Northern Europe. Joining them will be ATROX, for whom this will be the first European tour. Confirmed dates for the trek, dubbed the "Vikings, Villains and Vultures Tour," are as follows:

This will not be the first time that Viking metallers HELHEIM join forces with avant-garde metallers, and Dark Essence Records stable mates, VULTURE INDUSTRIES to tour. Commented HELHEIM frontman and bass player V'gandr, "We have all known each other for far too long, and the last couple of tours we did together was fun to do, to put it mildly. It helps to know who you are dealing with — there's nothing worse than touring with someone you don't get on with, and we can always be sure that there will be plenty of laughs and beer flowing on the way with the VULTURE INDUSTRIES guys."
HELHEIM recently caused a sensation in Norway when it launched its "Kaoskult" album in front of an audience of young children in a kindergarten.
SULPHUR are now close to finishing all the song material for the next album. At the moment they are preparing to record pre productions of all new songs. You can reportedly expect a pretty different album this time, including more synths and samples, much heavier, intense guitars and a more powerful production. Sulphr expects to hit the studios late this summer or early autum. The recording session will be done at Conclave Media studios with Bjørnar Nilsen as the producer, the same which the band recorded the Cursed Madness album in.
