Veni Domine - MEGAPOST
The music created by Veni Domine can be called "christian progressive doom metal". "Christian" because all lyrics are about christianity, God, and are based on the Bible. Also band members are practicing Catholics. "Progressive" because their music surely isn't easy to comprehend, songs are quite long and complicated. All musicians are technically great instrumentalists. And "doom" because Veni Domine's music is heavy, extremely slow (slower than Candlemass' for sure), and overwhelming. I would also say that the word "psychodelic" could be used to describe at least some songs of Veni Domine.
For those of you who still don’t know the band in the booklet the guys thank Leif Edling who is no more no less than mr. Candlemass himself. That tells a lot about the band’s main influence. As it was stated in Veni Domine can be considered the Christian version for Candlemass and Solitude Aeternus as well.
The band includes synthesizer and progressive elements on their brand of music. lives in. That being said, in regards to the music this is a difficult band to describe. There are, basically, no fast tracks or even mid tempo. Most tracks by this band are very slow and rather long.
