Vein is a new three-piece doom metal band featuring two members of Procession and a member of In Solitude which was formed last year. Upon finding out who was in the band, I quickly snapped up a copy of their debut 7”, entitled “Crux Calvaria”.
The music is heavy and epic doom metal in the style of Candlemass, Reverend Bizarre, Solstice and, of course; Procession. Each of the two songs presented on this EP are well written examples of powerful and heavy traditional-minded doom metal, showcasing heavy, catchy and interesting guitar and bass riffs, interesting drum work and some of the most soulful and passionate vocals I’ve ever heard.
Vein is definitely a band to watch out for in the future, they have really impressed me with this 14 minutes 7” EP. Since “Crux Calvaria” is limited to 500 copies, I would suggest you lovers of doom metal get on this ASAP.
