Trendkilling Southern Metal from Tennessee
Tym Walker-Vocals & Guitar / Chris Wright-Bass / Arlie Shultz III-Drums
The words of Tym Walker, founder, guitarist and vocalist of Rent Veil.
"In the winter of 2007 I was given a vision of what to do with the musical skills I had been blessed with. Taking my 12 year history in death metal and combining it with my southern roots, the vision became Rent Veil.
The past 7 years have seen Rent Veil perform with such acts as Demon Hunter, As I Lay Dying, Impending Doom and many others, The pleasure of playing numerous festivals including Cornerstone Fest, Anvil Music fest and more, were highlights of the seven year history that has included numerous line-up changes and a 3 year sabbatical. Rent Veil also has been through some hard times with record labels that seeing eye to eye with proved difficult.
After a near 3 year hiatus, it has been so great to hook up with two amazing musicians in Arlie Shultz III (drums) and Chris Wright (bass). Things around the Rent Veil camp are rolling again and the machine is running wide open!
Performing anywhere we possibly can and writing new material has been exciting and surreal in some ways as the vision is coming into full view. Our goal is to have our first full length record recorded by the end of 2014 and have it released in very early 2015, if not sooner! I am personally excited with all we have done and all we have ahead of us and the new CD promises to be all I ever thought it would be. The revival is happening and it will soon morph into a full blown revolution!"
