Northwest Kicks Ass: Veio – “Ghost”

Veio

“Ghost”

Infinite Light / Desperate Shadows

Veio is that unusual blend of prog rock, metal, and hard rock that is hard to actually pull off.  Veio pulls if off.  The band comes from that musical garden called Portland, OR, where music of all varieties grows wild. And Veio is one of the winners.  The band is comprised of Cameron Byrd (Vocals/Guitar), Brett Byrd (Drums), Trae Davis (Guitar), Kris Lewis (Bass).  This band kicks ass, and does so in all the right places.  I love the way “Ghost” builds and explodes and calms down again.  The beginning is almost Rush like with touches of Queensryche, all thrown together in an original package that blows me away.  Pay a listen, and if you live in the Northwest and West (lucky bastards), see them live.  Guys, come to Pittsburgh.
