American sludge/doom metal outfit Veilcaste premiere new single »Relapse In Reason« taken from their upcoming album »Precipice«
Indianapolis, Indiana based sludge/doom metal outfit Veilcaste premiere new single »Relapse In Reason« taken from their upcoming album, »Precipice«, which will be released on February 10th, 2023 via Wise Blood Records.
Vocalist Dustin Mendel comments: “»Relapse In Reason« is about the knowledge that charlatans try to wield to sucker you into converting or parting with your cash. Especially when the access to those tools are already inside you. I don’t need someone else telling me my future; it’s not that hard for me to figure out or control myself.”

Wise Blood Records presents »Precipice«, the new album from Indianapolis doom titans Veilcaste. The world-ending heaviness for fans of emotive sludge (Yob, Neurosis), crushing doom (Electric Wizard, Conan), and even death/gloom like Mother Of Graves and Tiamat. Recorded and mixed by Carl Byers at Clandestine Arts. Mastered by Collin Jordan, who has worked with Yob, Cough, Windhand, Pelican, and Apostle Of Solitude.
Originally formed as Conjurer in the winter of 2010, the band changed names to Veilcaste in early 2020. Veilcaste have been one of the heaviest bands in the American Midwest for over a decade.

After releasing Veilcaste’s split with Tusk in 2022, Wise Blood is proud to work with them on this exceptional record. The stunning cover art by SoloMacello is going to look amazing on Vinyl and Jewel Case CD. Veilcaste’s riffs are heavier than dying stars. Venture into the darkness and press play.
