a disc! I took it home to listen last night
and all I can say is wow. A musical tour de force!
Having recently produced a friend's CD I appreciate
the superlative engineering and production and writing."
George Maida (WCVE
88.9FM, Richmond VA)
We're proud to announce that The Veil's single Fever
Vision was played on WCVE-FM
88.9 in Richmond, Virginia next Saturday night, August
16th. DJ (or "on-air personality" as they like to be known
nowadays) George Maida contacted us after receiving the new
compilation album Oasis Alternative No.23. Oasis
(free plug here) is the company we chose to manufacture our album,
and I'd recommend them to anyone - their service is fast, friendly
and there's always someone there to answer the phone if you have
a question. And, we've been completely satisfied with the quality
of our cds as well as the package printing. George played our track
as well as 11 others on his show The Electric Croude, starting
at midnight. Hmm, why is it our music seems to be favored by DJs
(lord love 'em) whose shift start in the wee hours? Maybe we appeal
the way, I think I've figured out what Alternative Rock is after
listening to the 77 tracks on the Oasis compilation. Ok, follow
me here: There are no "Rock" stations anymore. You've
got your Classic Rock, which plays what I was listening to in high
school and college. You can't get airplay on those stations unless
you happen to be Aerosmith or The Scorpions or some other band that
is now considered Classic Rock. That leaves the Alternative Rock
stations, which apparently play everything else. Is it rock? Who
knows. But the tracks on the Alternative CD range from folk rock
to modern rock to progressive to metal.
Speaking of compilations and the new (it's still new, darnit!)
