Not that long ago Ancient Thrones released their concept album, ‘The Veil‘, which as they say is a “descent into the afterlife telling the story of grief that people can relate to through dark and progressive blackened death.” The band delivers and impactful and powerful album that is versatile, dark, and gritty. ‘The Veil‘ is certainly a true masterpiece. Masterfully crafted guitar riffs, basslines that hit like a ton of bricks, and raucously roaring vocals transport you into their world. As a result, the music washes over you like a heavy storm while the soundscape consumes you. Honestly, ‘The Veil‘ is one of the most impressive albums that came out last year! Here’s what Ancient Thrones had to say about ‘The Veil‘
“The record is a concept record so it’s meant to be listened to in its entirety to get the full experience of the story. Even the songs were written and laid out in a way that they seamlessly transition into each other. Almost as if it was just one long piece of music broken up into separate parts as tracks. We want people to headbang and mosh, but we also want to bring people on a journey through this world of purgatory and grief and understand each phase of grief the record represents through the 10 tracks.”
