After seeing Vices To Veils preform last night for the third time, I would be crazy to not write up an article over a band that’s completely dominating the Indy music scene right now.
Anyone that has seen the band preform would agree that they bring an energy surged and emotion filled set to the table. The band’s overall stage presence is insane, from synchronized jumps, kicks, and spins to ominous intro tracks the band’s appearance is killer. If the show doesn’t catch you, they bring a whole new side to the metal core genre. Be it technical guitars, punchy bass, or insane vocals the band as a whole is incredibly solid.
Over the past year the band has really climbed their way to the top of the Indianapolis local music scene. One of the biggest local shows I’ve ever been to was put on by Vices To Veils. The shows are big, and then the crowdresponse is even bigger. Time after time I’ve seen energy filled crowds mashing, jumping, climbing on stage and overall loosing it for the Vices boys.
Last night’s show was no exemption to the band’s tradition and if anything it was the best I’ve seen them yet. Right from the beginning the crowd was drawn in and ready to go crazy. As lead singer Alec Harter rocked on his knees every hand in the crowd was raised pointing back in unison with the opening track. As soon as the track finished the band dove right into it putting on a killer show as they opened for Ohio natives, The Plot In You.
I don’t think there’s one bad thing I can say about Vices To Veils. Everything is just incredibly solid. Be on the lookout, because very soon these guys are gonna be something huge. They’ve already taken over the Indy scene, and I honestly can’t wait to see what’s in store for them. Along with being insane musicians, they’re some of the most humble people I’ve gotten the opportunity to meet and photograph and they definitely deserve to be where they are right now, and where they will be given enough time.
Standing out in the metalcore genre isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but Vices To Veils have easily accomplished it and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
