The Veer Union recently released their sophomore album, Divide The Blackened Sky, via Rocket Science Ventures. Being a fan since their 2009 radio-friendly rock debut Against The Grain, I went into this album with preconceived notions. Almost immediately after I hit play Crispin Earl’s voice startled me – he has a combative presence on the opening track “Borderline” and I like it!
Vancouver hard rockers The Veer Union recently released their new single “Bitter End”, from their sophomore record Divide The Blackened Sky out now via Rocket Science Ventures. This song is chock full of catchy melodies and choruses, and from the very start the guitar plays a hypnotic line (very Linkin Park “Hybrid Theory” sounding). Said guitar is quickly followed by in-your-face drums which remain for the rest of the song. Vocalist Crispin Earl’s voice sounds claustrophobic and somewhat anxious during the first verse then opens up for the chorus. Once that happens, it is balls-to-the-wall rock n’ roll at its finest.
