Veil of Secrets

Veil of Secrets is a new band formed by Vibeke Stene and Asgeir Mickelson.

Their debut album Dead Poetry marks Stene’s return to the scene after leaving Tristania in 2007 and Mickelson’s first outlet as the main songwriter.

Vibeke Stene is known as the singer of Tristania, 1997-2007. With Veil of Secrets, Stene has composed the majority of lyrics and vocals.

Asgeir Mickelson is known for having played drums in Borknagar, Sarke, Ihsahn, Spiral Architect, Vintersorg, Testament, and others. With Veil of Secrets, Mickelson has written all music and recorded drums, guitars, and bass. In live situations, he will handle drums.

Growling vocals on the album were done by Erling Malm (Endolith, Articulus) who will also play guitar live. Violin was done by Sareeta (Ram-Zet, Trollfest, etc), who will also join on live shows. The live line-up will be completed with another guitarist and bassist. This constellation is “the band”, but the creative core is Stene & Mickelson who will also represent Veil of Secrets in photos and all promotion.

The fundament of Veil of Secrets is to make music from the heart – and the belief that honest music is the only way to really captivate and move the listener. It is pure doom metal, still with a niche of its own.

Vibeke Stene   Vocals
Asgeir Mickelson   Drums, Guitars, Bass
Erling Malm   Growling Vocals (Live)
Sareeta   Violin (Live)

VEIL OF SECRETS’ “DEAD POETRY” is set to be released through CRIME RECORDS on November 30th, 2020.

The CD will come as an 8-panel digipak. The first print of the LP will be gatefold, colored “galaxy effect” vinyl, exclusive signed photo, large poster, and strictly limited to only 300 copies. In addition, a digital download is included if the LP is bought at the Crime Records webshop. When this limited print is sold out, the LP will be available as a standard gatefold with black vinyl. “DEAD POETRY” is available on all major streaming services on the release date.

Members of the VoS newsletter are getting an early link and password to order the album on November 1st at 18:00 CET. Join the newsletter at www.veilofsecrets.com to get the early purchase info (if you don’t receive the confirmation mail, look in your spam folder).

The album is publicly available for pre-order at www.crimerecords.no November 2nd at 18:00 CET.

Crime Records:
– While the CD is ready to be shipped on the release date, we will have to wait about a month for the LP due to extended delivery times at the pressing plant. We understand this is unfortunate for those who want to buy both CD and LP at the same time. Still, since the only option to sync these releases was to delay until next year (only big artists release albums in December!), we decided to go on with the original release date and add the signed photo and poster as a bonus. If you buy the CD/LP bundle, you have the options to get the CD shipped first and LP later, or wait and get the whole order shipped as one to save the extra postage cost. You will get the digital release on November 30th.

“DEAD POETRY” contains 8 songs, 48 minutes.
1. “The Last Attempt” 5.24
2. “Sear The Fallen” 6.50
3. “Remorseful Heart” 5.27
4. “The Lie Of Her Prosperity” 6.19
5. “Fey” 6.32
6. “Bryd” 4.27
