4.5 superbRobbit | May 5th 16

WITHIN THE VEIL is a sadly overlooked Metal album that combines elements of Thrash, Goth and Heavy Metal. It's a painful
journey through the wounded and tormented psyche of vocalist/lyricist Dawn Crosby, formerly of Detente. Her layered vocals are
perfectly woven to support the haunted ambiance of these songs. Dawn's delivery is raw and unvarnished, but she is completely
invested in these songs of betrayal, pain and loss.

One standout track is "Red To Grey", which she allegedly wrote about witnessing the murder of a prostitute. Other highlights
include "Love's Death" and "Drift", but the entire album is fairly strong and only gets better with repeated listens. The sheer
pain of the lyrical content led me to ponder what sort of tragic experiences led Dawn to write such an emotionally bare heavy
metal album. It's this very facet that makes WITHIN THE VEIL such an interesting anomaly alongside the often emotionally
shallow lyrics you'd encounter within this genre.
