Veritas release first full length album "Threads of Fatality"

September 14, 2020

 

The highly anticipated, first full length CD from Veritas is now available worldwide. Following the success of the 2019 Ep, Veritas has been hard at work putting together this collection of 14 classic sounding hard rock/metal songs. It features Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord, Spirits of Fire) on drums, will be sure to appeal to fans of early Queensryche, Dream Theater, and Fates Warning.

In 2012, Greg Wenk started looking for members and decided on Veritas, which means truth, when looking for ideas. Deciding it needed a logo to make it more recognizable, he found the awen symbol which means creativity. Already having about 20 song ideas, he found original drummer Adam Hartley after a few months of searching and auditions. They began working on songs and auditioning for the remaining members. After many months of auditions, they found Geno Alberico through an ad and realized they had a common vision and welcomed him into the band. The trio continued working on songs and searching for the perfect singer to compliment the music. After many months of searching, Geno mentioned he knew a great vocalist. The only catch was he lived several states away. After sending him a few tracks and hearing what he could do, they decided to move forward with Denny Anthony on vocals. Veritas began working on completing songs by sending tracks back and forth and began recording what would be an EP for the first release. Unfortunately, Adam decided to leave the band for personal reasons, and the search was on for another drummer. Denny suggested using Mark Zonder for the drums since he had worked with him on a previous project. Denny contacted him and he agreed to record the drums.

 As the EP neared completion in 2019, they began sending out samples to create interest in the band and get people familiar with the music. The songs were an instant hit and were played on several internet radio stations including Rock Rage Radio (USA) and Mercury radio (Greece). People started wanting more info about the band and where to get the Ep. The problem was it was still in the mixing/mastering phase and the band was struggling to catch up with demand. Forgotten Scroll set up a topic page to keep new fans of the band informed about the progress and availabillty of the EP. Once it was released it received many great reviews comparing it to the sound of early Queensryche, Fates Warning, and Dream Theater.

The band continued writing music and focused on completing their first full length cd. They also needed a better way to release their cd and make it more easily available worldwide. They began shopping the music around to various distribution companies with the ability to get their music in stores around the globe. After talks with several companies, they found a company with a common vision and the connections to make it happen. In March of 2020, Veritas signed a deal with Amplified for worldwide distribution of their first full length cd in physical and digital formats. The cd has 14 tracks and was mixed by Daryl Bolicek at Wild Horse Recording in Minnesota and mastered by Thomas Juth at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Sweden. The cd released on August 28th, 2020 worldwide and has already received great reviews from Germany, Sweden, USA, Poland.
