Veio – New Music

Portland-based alt-metal band Veio members Brett(Drums) and Cam(Vocals, Guitar) began performing as Veio in college, with the addition of Trae (Lead Guitar) and Kris (Bass). Their second full length release, Infinite Light / Desperate Shadows, is due out in March 2017, which follows up on their 2010 EP, Victus Per Leo and their 2013 debut full length. Their single and music video “Structures” was released in January of 2017 and was recorded, mixed and produced by Stephan Hawkes at Interlace Audio in Portland, OR; the video was produced by Totally Serious Productions. The band states that “‘Structures’ unfolds the physical, spiritual and emotional battles we face as we move through our journey towards self-actualization. By resolving lifelong struggles, one is able to find a secure, permanent home, and make peace with the idea of reaching a spiritual end destination.”

“Structures” Lyrics

Soon to doubt and waiver
Under great demise
Longing for enduring structures
Plagued and compromised
Saving up on sorrows
Look to move in the night
Sing a song of precious promise
Know the coming fight

Now go
Search for home
Now go

Sons of Grave importance
Come and bear the will
An oath in blood and war on your hearts
A voyage far uphill
Don’t you march with your heads down
Follow flame, your hands
Paint a picture with sword in ruthless
Way of great command

And call it your name
Call it your name
Rest, you’ve turned away again

Now go
Search from home and lo
Now go
Your road unknown

Tonight’s the night you hope to rest and say its over
The fear in wandering due to great demands
Out in the arid air, rectified and chosen
Your wondering minds have led to golden strife —– but then you must
Solemn trials
Precarious ails
Doubtful weeping
Death in all that you wail

Asherah flames light the sky
Binding heat, this burning night
Shallow hearts make amends
See it through, this journey ends

Tonight’s the night you hope to rest and say its over
The fear in wandering due to great demands
Out in the arid air, rectified and chosen
Your wondering minds have led to golden strife —– but then you must

Cross this river
Paint the song
Cross this river
Follow flame and search for home

Cross over this river, paint this promised song
Binding heat, this burning night will
Ever guide you home
Call it your name
Call it your name
Rest from fighting now
