After announcing their forthcoming sophomore EP “Gallery Of Sin II” last month, heavy metallers VEIL OF THE SERPENT have now released their brand new single, the second track to be released ahead of the new EP, titled “Absolution“.
With “Absolution” the band delivers heavy metal to the purest. Atmospherically threatening, the progressive 7-minute track is cutting throats with belligerent guitar riffs, relentless drums and ice cold vocals filled with pure rage.
With the release of the crushing “A Circular Pattern“, the epic “Sanatorium 51” and their own version of Iced Earth‘s “Burning Times“, heavy metallers VEIL OF THE SERPENTkicked off the year with an absolute bang, slashing their way to highly critical acclaim and love from the fans. In keeping with their Halloween tradition, the band now announced the release of a brand new EP entitled “Gallery Of Sin II“, which will be hitting streaming services on October 27!
“Gallery Of Sin II” is the sequel to the murderous horror story, started with the “Gallery Of Sin” EP back in 2022. The band comments: “The first EP was about a detective hunting down a serial killer that makes paintings, using the blood of his victims, to exhibit them in the gallery of sin. In this next part of the story the gallery of sin was destroyed. The detective caught the killer and became a hero. A curious reporter steps into the spotlight and questions the case. Will the city’s new guardian angel save the city or will the reporter unveil a twisted conspiracy? You will find out soon!“
While still inducing the crashing sounds of heavy guitars and shattering drums, on their newest extended play the band is diving deeper into the gloomy side of metal, mixing galloping rythmes with dark guitar melodies that heightens the darkness that surrounds the horror movie style of the EP. Topped off by haunting vocals and epic songwriting, “Gallery Of Sin II” makes the ultimate soundtrack to spice up every heavy Halloween party!
