“The album as a whole has a lot of peaks and valleys through light and darkness, and ‘The Tyranny of Imagination’ is probably the deepest valley,” explains vocalist/guitarist/pianist Evan Berry. “Whereas our previous single ‘Far from Where Dreams Unfurl’ explored brighter, melodic territories, we wanted this song to focus more on guitar work, atmosphere, and the darker textures of the orchestra. Lyrically, this song is a sort of submission to the power and oppression of an overactive mind. Up until this point on the album, the ‘main character’ has been battling his own inability to live in the real world, attempting to find ways to perceive reality as it truly is. This is a song of defeat, and of going inward to the point of no return.”
Veil of Imagination is a stunningly epic, emotional and whimsical odyssey through landscapes of earth and mind. With elements of progressive metal, folk and orchestral music providing a dynamic backdrop, Veil of Imagination takes listeners through vivid, emotional landscapes, while the lyrics weave tales that are simultaneously fantastical and personal.
Formed in 2012, the Boston-based band has previously released two albums, 2012’s Olden Tales & Deathly Trails and 2015’s Sleep at the Edge of the Earth. With this slightly different approach to creating music, Veil of Imagination transforms and expands upon WILDERUN‘s already indefinable style, resulting in an album that is at once beautiful and fierce. Clean vocals transform into deathly growls as the band alternates between exquisitely-composed orchestrations and savage metal, all executed with technical prowess.
Veil of Imagination is set for release on November 1. Pre-orders are available now at: https://wilderun.bandcamp.com/
