Veins is an outstanding extreme metal band sounding somewhere along the lines of Kreator and occasionally like Ministry. The band thrashes away yet keeps a consistent heavy beat that shows musical prowess as well as the ability to flat out rock. These newcomers have released Innocence, their debut album and it’s far better than many band’s third or fourth album that have been in the business for years. My favorite track is Reflections which has a very Al Jourgensen-esque (Ministry) quality to it. The band shows it’s versatility with tracks like Dying, Innocence and Time Doesn’t Exist. The latter having a super heavy bass line that’s irresistible. Part I, Part II and Bullet In The Head are full on thrashers that show the bands power as well as their great sense of musical timing. I couldn’t be more impressed with a band’s debut album than I am with Innocence by Veins. The lyrical content is introspective and intelligent. The musicianship is first rate and perfectly executed. This is a band to watch and a band that I’m absolutely sure to hear more about in the coming year. I simply can’t stop listening to this one over and over again. Take it from me, this is one you don’t want to miss if you like heavy thrash.
