Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Veil were formed in Greece in 2003. We've recorded a demo, "Forest Oblivion”, in 2005 and most recently, "Blinkers Define the Spasm”, our first E.P. which was self- released on September 2009. Throughout the years, there were many line-up changes and now the band has the following form: George E (drums, vocals), Chris Sven (guitar, vocals), and George Sven (5-string bass).
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Well, our style is death metal and bands such as Dying Fetus, Bolt Thrower, Nile, At the Gates and the pioneers of the genre, Death have definitely an impact on our music.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Simply, because we kick ass. Seriously, if you like death metal or you're into bands such as the ones mentioned above, take a moment and listen to our stuff.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
The band has released a demo and an E.P. The demo, "Forest Oblivion”, was recorded in summer 2005, consists of five songs, accompanied by an intro and an outro, with a style of music that fuses black, doom, and death metal. The "Blinkers Define the Spasm” E.P. was home recorded in summer 2009, contains five death metal songs and was self- released on September 2009. We've received many reviews for both our releases from media around the world and they were actually really good and more and more people buy our E.P and come to our live shows, so I guess they like our music.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Of course! We perform live whenever we get the chance and we are always interested in booking a new live show.
What should labels/ zines/ promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are very serious and dedicated in what we're doing. We are always trying to improve our music skills, each one individually but as a band as well. We try for the best and we want to take the band one ster further.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Our main goal is to book as many live shows as possible. At the same time, we are constantly trying to improve our technique and increase our speed.
