AxeWound features guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck from Bullet For My Valentine and singer Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats, prime movers both in two of the most exciting bands to have emerged onto the metal scene in recent years.
The line-up is completed by drummer extraordinaire Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter), guitarist Mike Kingswood (Glamour Of The Kill) and ex-Rise To Remain bassist Joe Copcutt.
The Vultures album was recorded in Cardiff at the start of this year, regular Bullet For My Valentine collaborator Martin 'Ginge' Ford engineering the sessions. In the event, they recorded 11 songs in 11 frenetic days. "It was very intense, very demanding but that's how we wanted it to be," reasons Tuck. "No pre-writing, no rehearsing just booking a studio and going in and doing a song a day. We wanted to capture something that happened right there and then."
