Ritual Veil, based in Portland, can't get enough. The trio must have thought: we take some new wave, postpunk and synth-pop as a base, apply a coat of sexy beats with a dark edge and to top it off, give it a twist of gothic flavour. Would that work? Yes, it would!
Wolf In The Night appeared on Other Voices Records. A 7-track album, which by first listening brings up the following question: is this an normal EP or a 'Best Of', filled with super-hits? Well, it is still the first, filled with stylized, full-bodied, finely finished songs. They sound very retro and yet contemporary at the same time. Artistically thought through, a voice with the necessary sincere melancholy, beautiful beats and synths that happily wander through the songs with glee.
Favorite Toy opens as a pure post-punk song, only to turn slowly synth-pop-like. Guitars are prominent and present everywhere but in a correct balance to the other instruments. Gray Filter sounds up-tempo and poppy, and oh so danceable. Title-song Wolf In The Night is cut from the same wood. Fans of Depeche Mode and bands like New Order will certainly find their taste in Time Again. Ritual Veil will evoke that wonderful eighties feeling in many lovers of gothic.
Perfect for parties in dark places, preferably cellars, where everyone so it seems, strides weightlessly across the dance floor. With this music, yes you can!
