Stream: Veil Of Light – Cold Skin

a2156146224_10

Finally, the latest album that Veil Of Light has put out there is up for grabs. “Cold Skin” not only takes you into another dimension with the music at hand, it also proves that the Zürich-born project can be done single-handedly. Of course, he’s had the help of Viktor Ottosson when it comes to mastering, and Edition GRIS when it comes to releasing. But when you think of it, it’s kind of impressing that Michael Ho (Veil Of Light) has managed to do something only a band should be able to do. Everything about it reminds you of the past, yet in a more callous form. Nothing is about nostalgia, but it is obvious that the influences are put apart and put together again – so he could have something to play with. The almost ethereal and shoegazing sound that he graces you with in “Treasure“, to the slower and more gripping dark rock anathema of “Cinereous” – pave way for a whole new way of doing it, without copying the way it’s been done before. Not to mention the hazing atmosphere that “Into The Night” gives off. It’s as if you’d pick up a demo from yesteryear’s crazily underrated gothic outfits, put into the 21st century, done without the cheesiness of it. I must say that I like demos, but I like this even more. There’s something about the chastised atmosphere that makes you want to swing your arms around, but not too much – so you don’t embarrass yourself. What am I really talking about? I don’t know by know, because I’m so enthralled by it. I must say that this is something you should consider buying. If you buy it, you’ll have to be quick, because it’s limited to 200 copies. When you buy it, you get a download-coupon to the other two tracks. You can buy it from Edition GRIS over here, and stream it down below.
