Veil of Deception was formed in Vienna in January 2013 with the intention to prove to all naysayers that Austrian metal is alive and well. What started off by Gerd and Dejan as a couple of jam sessions in order to exchange a few guitar riffs and ideas has now become a perfectly well-oiled machine ready to take the scene by storm. Gerd and Dejan started seeing the tremendous potential in those water-tight riffs they started writing together and decided to take things to the next level. It didn’t take long before Erik joined them on bass. Erik was a seasoned bass player with an amazing musical background that added a certain je ne sais quoi to the equation. Things were looking good.
