More Details On Debut Album "On The Edge" Posted By Volture

Virginia traditional metal act Volture have revealed the track list and album artwork for the upcoming debut LP "On the Edge." The album is set for release on September 13th via High Roller Records.

Volture is the brainchild of bassist Ryan Waste (known for his work with Municipal Waste) and guitarist Nick Poulus (Ex-Cannabis Corpse). Both got together to form the band in Richmond, VA in November 2008. The song writing leaned towards traditional Euro/US Metal and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The two friends were joined by drummer Barry Cover and vocalist Brent Hubbard (who was later replaced by Jack Bauer). The band's debut mini album "Shocking Its Prey" was issued in early 2010. Quickly after its release Dave Boyd of Twisted Tower Dire fame joined as a second guitarist. The "Rulebreaker" 7" single (plus video clip) followed in 2011 (including a brilliant cover version of Gotham City's "Killer Angels" on the flipside of the vinyl).

Volture continued to tour the United States and Canada throughout 2010/2011. In 2012, the band appeared at the prestigious Keep It True festival. Shortly thereafter the band inked a deal with High Roller Records. The result is the full-length debut album entitled "On The Edge", containing nine highly energetic traditional heavy metal anthems - from "Ride The Nite" all the way through to "Rock You Hard".

Ryan Waste commented: "'On The Edge' is the total heavy metal package. In comparison to the mini-album and the single the themes are a little more involved and the song writing has gotten a bit more complex. Although we never want to stray too far away from our original direction, I think it's important to grow. We will always play traditional heavy metal and that will never change!."

The track list for "On the Edge" is:

1. On the Edge
2. Ride the Nite
3. Desert Pursuit
4. Brethren of the Coast
5. Hot Wired
6. Nightrance
7. Heat Seeker
8. Rock You Hard
9. Deep Dweller
