It seems that things are happening in the U.S. power/prog camp. Not only there are lots of bands alive and kicking, but there are also plenty of newcomers who keep the flame on. VERITAS is one of these bands, a relatively new gang of prog vagabonds who seek their way into this mysterious music jungle.

And here we have the band’s first demo, a wonderful effort of four songs with the great Mark Zonder (WARLORD, ARRYAN PATH) as a guest drummer (and yes, he makes the difference if you ask me). The band plays a more straightforward type of prog metal that actually reminded me of more late 80’s – early 90’s acts. This means that there is a balance between the edgy aggressive (not modern) riffing and the melodic lyricism that had always characterized progressive metal. Which means that influences of FATES WARNING (“No Exit” era), QUEENSRYCHE and very early DREAM THEATER are more than obvious, without dominating the whole album. Because should you listen more carefully you could spot some traces of early POVERTY’S NO CRIME or ARMORED SAINT or even METAL CHURCH and VICIOUS RUMORS. There is an ongoing U.S. metal sense throughout the songs and a sincere feeling that makes listening to a joyful experience

Of course, four songs are not enough for us to reach a verdict. Yet it is a very promising beginning and a sign that VERITAS is on the right track. I expect lot of things from them.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
