Veiled – Black Celestial Orbs (2018)


Hailing from the USA, today we have Atmospheric Black Metal duo Veiled and their ravaging full-length debut release “Black Celestial Orbs”. Perfectly blending melancholic passages with the ravaging intensity of the USBM sound, the band unleashes nearly 40 minutes of masterful music that will instantly gain them recognition among the underground BM bands in the USA.

Opening with the intensity and violence of “Luminous”, we get a very Ash Borer-like layering of guitars and intricate drums that sets the bar quite high for this release. Coming off from the opening track’s high, “Portal” slows things down a bit before furiously pummeling the listener with crushing riffs and hellish vocals. The band’s music is a whirlwind experience of crushing passages and well-timed tempo changes that further contribute to the oppressive atmospheric experience created, as one can listen to in “Enshrouded”.

Featuring an intense and yet catchy approach to Black Metal, the band crafts very unique pieces that while being brutal they also have complex layers and tempo changes, allowing songs like “Black Celestial Orbs Part I”, to be quite effective. By sticking to some of the basics of the genre and enriching them with tons of atmosphere, the band sounds different than your average outfit and will certainly catchy your attention.

Closing with the mellow “Black Celestial Orbs Part II”, the band comes full circle with a very intense release. Overall, “Black Celestial Orbs” is one hell of a release that while feeling comfortable and familiar, deviates a bit from the norm to come out quite fresh and interesting. If you are looking for different and engaging atmospheric Black Metal release, look no further and pick up a copy of this one.
