Veer/The Measure Of Waste/Neverheard Distro/2012 CD Review


  Veer  are  a  band  from  Hungary  that  plays  a  very  grim,  raw  and  primitive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "The  Measure  Of  Waste"  which  was  released  by  Neverheard  Distro.

  Drums range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  drumming  with  only  a  small  amount  of  fast  playing  or  blast  beats,  while  the  bass  playing h as  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  bring  back  the  sound  of  the  early  2000's  and  there a re  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on t his  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim   sounding  black  metal  screams  with  some  angry  shouts  being  utilized  at  times  as  well  as  some  spoken  word  parts  being  used  on  the  outro,  while  the  lyrics  cover  hateful  and  violent  themes  with  most  of  the  songs  being  in  English  but  one  that  is  in  Hungarian,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  while  you  can  still  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Veer  are  a  very  great sounding  hateful,  grim,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "We've  Lost  In  Light"  "All  The  Things  Will  End"  "Praise  Be  To  The  Roach"  and  "The  Spring  Is  The  Last".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
