Boston based progmetal band WILDERUN got a lot of well deserved attention for their third album “Veil of Imagination”, an album as mesmerizing as its beautiful cover artwork by Adrian Cox.
Now the band has recorded an alternate version of the song “Hope & Shadow”, which was originally on their second album “Sleep at the Edge of the Earth”, and published it together with a quarantine session video:
WILDERUN comment: “We were super bummed when we were forced to postpone our recent tour, but we decided to keep ourselves busy in quarantine by starting a series of “Remote Rearrangements” of some of our previously released songs. “Hope & Shadow” is from our 2nd album, and is part of the larger “Ash Memory” suite. We decided to isolate this song, and give it a slightly different spin, and we’re very happy with the result!”
And the preorder for the re-release of “Veil of Imagination” on July 17th has started. Originally self-released in November 2019, it will be available via Century Media Records as CD Digipak and vinyl (with limited editions for Europe and North America). Check it out HERE
The band states: “After months of being out of stock, and amidst many inquiries, we are excited and relieved be issuing a rerelease of ‘Veil of Imagination’! It’s even more thrilling that it will be our very first album to be distributed by a record label, and we couldn’t be happier to partner with Century Media. In addition to finally getting this album out on vinyl, we’re also looking forward to releasing a special cover of Iron Maiden’s ‘Seventh Son of a Seventh Son’ as a bonus track on the CD re-release, so our fans can get something extra with this new issue.”
Digitally the album is already available on all platforms.
About the band:
Formed in 2012, Wilderun has previously released two albums, 2012’s Olden Tales & Deathly Trails and 2015’s Sleep at the Edge of the Earth. With this slightly different approach to creating music, Veil of Imagination transforms and expands upon their already indefinable style, resulting in an album that is at once beautiful and fierce.
Clean vocals transform into deathly growls as the band alternates between exquisitely-composed orchestrations and savage metal, all executed with technical prowess.
