One listen to Dissident Voices by Veil of Deception and it becomes very clear that metal is alive and well in Austria.  Thunderous, pounding rhythm section, great riffs and solos, soaring and powerful  vocals are found in abundance on this album, which blurs the line between the NWOBHM and power metal and adds bits from several other genres for good measure.

The band itself traces its roots back to 2013 in Vienna when guitarists Dejan Jorgovanovic and Gerd Metzl began jamming and exchanging riffs.  Not long after, Erik Fristad joined on bass and vocalist Daniel Gallar answered an ad and after a quick audition was now a member of the band.  After a brief search, Mike Günther was added on drums and the first iteration of the band was complete.  The band’s debut album, Deception Unveiled came not long after and exposed the world the band’s blend of modern metal, groove, thrash, and stoner metal.  Unfortunately, Erik left the band not long after recording and the band found current bassist Thomas Hava and the band pressed on playing shows and filming a couple of videos.  When it came time for the second album, guitarist Gerd decided to leave the band and Dejan took over all guitar parts for the album Tearing Up the Roots.  Concerts followed with the band even sharing the stage with the likes of Flotsam and Jetsam.  For Dissident Voices, the band returns as a four piece and released the album on Roxx Records imprint, No Life Til Metal records.

The only originals performed at this show were “Power Of The Sword,””Knights Of Steel,’ and ‘City Of Hell.’ Continue reading »
