[5] Veil - Dolor

Veil is a depressive ambient black metal band from the US. This two-man band gets its inspiration from Celtic heritage, superiority, and all of that nine yards. Lately I've really been thinking that DSBM is suffering from repetition. At first it was a trade mark and it worked well and everything. Repetition induces depression, and that's clearly a goal, but when music changes it adds an important dimension: the ability to contrast. While this music is still quite repetitive there is enough going on in it to make it interesting and the atmosphere and melody seem to be a cut above the rest. Some of the notes are incredibly faint yet well placed. Worth listening to the sample song if you like DSBM or are willing to give it a try. If you like that give the EP a try. The fourth track is a Burzum cover.
