Veil of thorns was initiated in Boston by P. Emerson Williams in the late -80’s. They have been operating in the goth underground ever since, though their necrofuturist vision pulls in sounds from all over the sonic map.
Stark, angular post-punk songs give way to a cello as it descends into madness. Spare jazz-inflected tone poems lead back into sanguine deathrock dust storms.
For much of their first decade, Veil of Thorns performed live extensively. It was in the new millennium their recorded output really began to ramp up. The looming necrofuture was here, and the digital panopticon that was built around us mirrored the world the lyrics of Veil of Thorns depicted from the start. This vision continued to expand and dispersively focus in releases through Inner-X-Musick and PANICMACHINE in the late twenty-aughts and twenty-teens. The work of Veil of Thorns goes in cycles, the latest concluded with Eschaton & Celebration and the next cycle is set to begin.
