LOWER THE VEIL ‘THE 1000TH MONKEY’ (RLT ENTERAINMENT/INDEPENDENT/USA IMPORT/TSM SLW PROMOTIONS)
LOWER THE VEIL is a New Jersey based band and ‘The 100th monkey’ is their 2nd CD so far. The included music is sorta Classic Rock orientated, with some Melodic Hardrock type of material as well, but also here and there (“All that’s real”) we can hear the SOUNDGARDEN/ALICE IN CHAINS type of lowtuned 1990s Altmetal. However, a song like the semi-ballad “The sawyer” is a very strong and quite melodic tune, with some well-thought lyrics. The band definitely shows they are a quality 3-piece band, but I do feel that the production could be better. It is clear that this LOWER THE VEIL is a very professional band and if they are able to secure a label deal or get some help from an established producer, who knows how good a future CD might turn out. In the meantime, check them out at: www.lowertheveil.com
