Decibel Magazine premieres mind-bending track of the US black/death band VEILBURNER

Veilburner seem to have a cult following which is only increasing with every subsequent release. Their music remains in a niche of its own and fascinates everyone who chances upon it. ‘Dissonance in Bloom’ is the latest track premiered by Decibel Magazine which can be found HERE. Excerpt –

Lurkers in the Capsule of Skull, is a dizzying, off-kilter piece of black/death metal that attempts to portray a man’s descent into insanity… through a combination of weird psychedelia and uncomfortable dissonance, Veilburner match the music to the album’s theme. Musically, Veilburner are similar to acts like Ulcerate, Imperial Triumphant and Blut Aus Nord, using a death metal base to build off of.”

Veilburner are back with a new album full of twisted, brain-warping, consciousness-altering death/black metal. Many thought they’d achieved their pinnacle with their previous full length ‘A Sire to the Ghouls of Lunacy’ but this one, while continuing where it left off, expands upon the theme of that one in ways never imagined. This is more of the same unhinged, dissonant and downright terrifying music delivered with even more conviction and extremity. Their creative genius is inexhaustible as the band once again elaborates on the concept of the man suffering from a mental condition being haunted by the ghoul-ish entities that feature on the artwork and fighting to prove their existence. Indeed, the multi-faceted music sounds as though it’s written by someone with multiple personality disorder because it’s fantastically whimsical, following no perceivable trajectories, and just leaves you shocked and spellbound by it all. It’s the next level in extreme metal music, blurring boundaries of death and black metal and everything in between, and elevating it to heights hitherto unscaled.
