Review: Occulta Veritas – Igneous EP (Italy, 2015)

Occulta Veritas is a solo instrumental metal project from Turin, Italy, directed by mastermind Daniele Vergine, better known as a member of math metal band Noise Trail Immersion.
“Igneous” was released January the 20th, 2015 and brings 5 intense metal songs mixed with electronic atmospheres, in which Daniele tries to blend all of his influences.
Both the intro “Feeling Free” and the outro “Gist Of My Days, Air That I Breathe” are clean tunes with touches of electronica, and they respectively open and close the album in a cyclic way.
For the rest of the EP, we can appreciate Daniele’s growling 8-string riffing which carries mathcore-ish elements and dissonance, accompanied by melodic progressions and clean breaks.
Songs have no canonical structure and they flow as a sort of “stream of consciousness”, so prepare for a not so easy listening.
My standout track would probably be “Ignis Fatus” for its overall variety in dynamics.
In my opinion, the songs sums up what Occulta Veritas is all about: clean interludes, heavy riffing, and electronic\ambient elements.
Take a look at the project and support Daniele’s work!

TSL co-founder, co-owner, editor, and in charge of everything-that-comes-with-that. Born 1992, I always had the vocation to learn everything I could later never accomplish to save my own life. I am indeed a failed guitarist, drummer and so much more! Er, I’d better write about music I like for the time being. Although my musical past has been firmly rooted in rock, punk and metal, I appreciate any kind of music as long as I find it artistically interesting. I have a split personality by which part of me likes anything musically forward-thinking, inventive or just of general “good taste”, and part of me likes being blasted by all-out intensity and dissonance.
