That's exactly what brothers Cam (Vocals/Guitars) and Brett Byrd (Drums) set out to do with the band's formation and first full length effort 'Infinite Light//Desperate Shadows.' The band toured with notable acts Seether, Tremonti, Red, Starset and The Veer Union in support of the album.
"We get that comparing a band to the highly revered Tool is sacrilege to many, but these boys deserve to be at least in the conversation for their mature and dynamic sound creations." -Matt Simon, Ear to the Ground Music Blog
"With comparisons being made to Tool and Thrice, it's a lot to live up to. I see it as a nod to Veio's genuineness and quality control for the music they put out there. Every new Veio song I hear lives up to expectations." - Todd McCarty (GM Fearless / VP Sales at Sony/Century Media)
"Veio are that unique combination of progressive, metal and alternative that produces a memorable style that few bands are able to achieve." - Roie Avin (Prog Report)
