While the term black/death often conjures up a rather straightforward mix of the two genres, Veilburner do so in a rather unorthodox and hard to quantify way that culls together elements from both regular and dissonant black metal, as well as standard death metal shot up with more technical death metal ideas, and intertwine all of that with a healthy dose of industrial, psychedelic, and prog influences. The result defies easy categorization, but easy straightforward listening has never been Veilburner's goal.
The debut single from The Obscene Rite will be released on Monday, August 29th, so stay tuned for more Veilburner news coming soon. Music from the bands two prior full-lengths can be played at their Bandcamp linked to below for anyone new to the band who are curious about what they sound like.
