Tennessee southern metal trio Rent Veil announced the addition of former Death Row, Pentagram & Place of Skulls bassist ‘Lee Abney’ to the fold! All three members are excited about this even and can’t wait to hit the stage together for the first time on July 26th. Read the band’s statement below:
Rent Veil, a band that describes it’s sound as “southern praise metal”, is a heavy three piece band from Tennessee. Pulling influences from such acts such as Zakk Wylde‘s Black Label Society, Megadeth, and Pantera, Rent Veil forges their own identity of heavy music with faith-based lyrics based on true life experiences.
“Rent Veil has been through the turmoil of member changes and life’s disruptions to evolve into their strongest line-up.Tym Walker and I go back a long way” says Place of Skulls founder Victor Griffin. “With a heart for God and the passion in his songwriting, I’m glad to see their powerful southern style metal & balladry be given new life. “Another Promise” is my personal favorite…one of those songs I occasionally hear and wish I’d written. With endurance comes maturity, and Rent Veil has certainly endured. Typically, that’s a mark of only the best bands!”
The band’s debut EP Praise Honour & Glory, originally set for a 2011 release under Raging Storm Records, was shelved when the band went on hiatus shortly before the release. The six song EP was recorded at Knoxville’s Sound Lair, and released last March via Eternal Warrior Records.
