Here's something decent. Vultures United come from the pseudo-ashes of Orange County, CA's Grave for the Fireflies, stripping their former band down to their basic foundation: a little bit of hardcore intensity by way of Black Flag and the hearty punk aggression of the Nerve Agents.

This little three-song demo CD-R flies by in no time (six minutes, actually). The first two are standard but well-done examples of punk rock: "Membership Dues for the Hellfire Club" and its repetitive call-and-response chants, and "Jordan Needs a Life Raft Because His Ship Is Sinking" with its honest, but very simplified lyrical desperation. Closing things is a cover of the Murder City Devils' "Dance Hall Music" -- it ain't bad.

Vultures United is bogged down by a serious lack of dynamics, but its creators still manage to pump out some good, refreshing and angry jams.

"Jordan Needs Counseling Because He Has An Ulcer" should be the next song title.

Awful vox. No melody. Just sad, tormented anger. Angry Jordan needs some counseling.

The Johnny Vulture on Gwen's album was one of Andre 3000's pseudonyms.

Is the lead singer of this band a guy called Johnny Vulture? There was a Johnny Vulture on Gwen Stefani's first solo album. I ask becuase they are both from Orange county.

And yes, i think Gwen stefani and No Doubt rock the house.

It's not bad. They could turn in to something greater. However, the guy who got upset about VU lacking dynamics made me laugh my ass off. Yes it is only a 3 song demo but that doesn't mean they can't have differing elements between songs or even in the same song.

LOL @ the overreaction to the one criticism. It can be within those songs, guy -- which it is.
