Veldes is a one man band from Slovenia that plays a Atmospheric Black Metal sound. Recently Veldes released a four track EP, called Skyward, and contacted Lachryma Christi for a review.
Lachryma Christi couldn't be more pleased with this request since the sound is great. Really good to hear this band for the first time, even though they had released an album last year already.
Skyward is beautiful. Some of you will probably think that "beautiful" is not a suitable word when it comes to Black Metal, but honestly it suits very well here.
First track is a piano song, really beautiful, leaving goose bumps everywhere. Really melodic and deep.
All tracks are special, following the same line, with some doom parts as well. Melodic, melancholic, introspective, full of good vibes and feelings and also some sadness at parts.
Tilen Šimon is a very good musician and Lachryma Christi can only congratulate him for this amazing work, and hope every and each of you has the chance of getting Skyward, since it is one of the best releases that ever passed through Lachryma Christi. Rok Rupnik also did a great job as guest vocals.
The artwork cover is equally great as you can see below.
