Volture - “On the Edge”
Metal-heads of Richmond and beyond, Volture has returned to the scene with a new singer and upcoming album. They leaked a track from the full length album, coming out on High Roller Records in September.
Brent Hubbard decided to stop touring and left the band amicably, so the band found a replacement in Jack Bauer. No, I’m not talking about Kiefer Sutherland’s character in 24, which is also coming back. Although I will admit I had hoped the band had somehow summoned the fictitious character and were fighting terrorists while performing some badass metal riffs with Kiefer’s falsetto ablaze.
This track is of the caliber we have come to expect from the heavy hitters, and we almost can’t tell that Brent even left. Not only does Jack kick ass, but he’s pretty dreamy, too. That’s right, metal dudes can be dreamy. We hate to bring up another television show to describe this guy, but this is even cooler than Sons of Anarchy.
EDIT: Volture will be @ Strange Matter on 7/5 with Cauldron, Devil’s Hand, and Salvacion.
