Notorious heavy metal collective VEIL OF THE SERPENT, heading from Germany and the USA, just released a brand new single entitled “The Scarred“. The lyrics for the song were inspired by the epidemic of homeless veterans in America.
According to government reports, there are at least 40,000 homeless veterans in the United States. Of those veterans, at least 50% have serious mental illness and 70% have substance abuse problems. The band wrote “The Scarred” to make aware of this problem and to support organizations that help those people.
Though punishing guitar riffing, the band surprises with progressive metal nuances and scathing growl vocals that sucks you right into the abyss. Download or stream the track here, and check out the official lyric video, accompanying VEIL OF THE SERPENT‘s new single, below.
About the band:
VEIL OF THE SERPENT is a multi-national heavy metal band that was founded in 2021 by guitarist Gene and his son Felix. The two mooted the idea of working together in 2020. One year later they found a very talented singer in JD Stafford who completed the band’s line-up. The goal of the band is to forge dark melodies, gripping rhythms and powerful vocals into one sound.
While writing and performing good music is one part, creating and adhering to a marketing and business strategy is an equally important element to a band’s success. From the beginning VEIL OF THE SERPENT attached great importance to these components. Visuals, management and the band’s marketing are handled by drummer Felix, while singer JD Stafford is working on the lyrical content and guitarist Gene is taking care of the band’s sound as main music writer and recording engineer. All of their tracks are self-produced.
