»Vultures« is an EP of the swedish stoner band Dozer. Recorded in 2004-2005 at Rockhouse Studios in Borlänge, these six tracks were used as pre-production demos for what would later become the fourth Dozer album, 2005’s »Through The Eyes Of Heathens«.

The album is now released for the first time on vinyl and digipak with a very special unreleased bonus track, a cover of the Sunride song »Vinegar Fly«. Vultures is a real heavy-stoner explosion, something that only Dozer can provide.

The amazing artwork is made by Lowrider leader Peder Bergstrand.

Tracklist:
01. The Blood Is Cold
02. The Impostor
03. Last Prediction
04. Vultures
05. Head Ghosts
06. To The Fallen
07. Vinegar Fly (Sunride cover) (bonus track)

As with hundreds of other young Swedish bands, Dozer was the obvious answer to the boredom of a small town youth in a land where the sun seldom visits. After forming in 1995, Dozer emerged in 1998 with their debut 7″ which was awarded “Single of the week” in Kerrang! magazine. Dozer quickly progressed beyond their early influences and created a style of their own incorporating modern elements into their classic heavy rock sound. A sound that always has been intensely heavy but yet also strongly song and melody driven by the distinctive vocals of singer Fredrik Nordin. Dozer has carefully culivated a following like none other and a reputation second to none due mostly assuredly to their constant touring and explosive live shows.

Dozer scattered releases on labels like Meteor City, Man’s Ruin, and their own Molten Universe before finding a home at Small Stone. With albums like »Madre De Dios« and »Through The Eyes Of Heathens« these simple Swede’s have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of stoner rock, often placed upon the same pedestal as the fathers of the movement – Kyuss and Monster Magnet. With the release of their 5th full-length album »Beyond Colossal«, these sons of Sweden seemed poised to teach the Underground a lesson or two about what Rock and Roll is all about. Recorded between Studios 301 in Stockholm and Rockhuset Studios in their hometown of Borlänge, »Beyond Colossal« oozes with both the bleakness and beauty of the landscape. One can almost feel the sub-arctic winter cold that forces Tommi Holappa’s fingers to moves with superhuman speed alternating between beer chugging riffs and lightning solo’s.

After a hiatus the band came back again with some live shows over the last years. Meanwhile they got a deal with the cult label Heavy Psych Sounds which re-released the band’s first three albums »In The Tail Of A Comet«, »Madre De Dios« and »Call It Conspiracy«. The releases have seen the light in March 2020 in a bunch of amazing coloured vinyl versions and digipaks.

Dozer is:
Fredrik Nordin – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Tommi Holappa – Lead Guitar
Johan Rockner – Bass
Olle Mårthans – Drums
