Editorial Reviews

The Vancouver based band makes its triumphant return with the release of their self-produced sophomore album, Divide the Blackened Sky on 3/27/12. They pick up right where they left off; delivering a rock record that hits you in the face from the first song to the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not A Stormless Sky, But Overall Not Blackened May 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Veer Union are among the newer bands in the rock music realm. To date, they have only released one major-label album, Against the Grain, and an independent album, Time to Break the Spell. I bought this album, entitled Divide the Blackened Sky, after skimming through it on Spotify, and was liking what I heard. When I actually thoroughly listened to it, I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be, but still I liked this album nonetheless.

The band's sound isn't original, sure, but at least they execute this familiar sound better than bands like Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, and Daughtry, not saying that those bands are bad in any way. I'd say this band's sound is more along the lines of Adelitas Way and Cavo, which are both good radio-rock sounding bands that aren't too popular. Also, this album has no traces of profanity, which I have seen in Theory of a Deadman and Nickelback, and even something great like Shinedown.

Onto the actual album. Some of the standout tracks are the title track, Buried in the Ground, leadoff single Bitter End, and Silent Gun, even though all of them hark to that basic song structure. There are some flaws with this album. Even with its haunting verses and very well executed (even though unoriginal) chorus, Buried in the Ground ends very abruptly, clocking in at 2 minutes and 20 seconds, and with no final chorus to conclude the song. I wish the song was longer and more effective, but it's still my favorite song nonetheless. Other than being simple, the lyrics are not entirely of new topics. Also, the album is way too short, giving us only 10 tracks, which is not a complete amount of songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Good March 31, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I give these CDs a few good listens over a few days to make my final review. I need to appreciate the music. I'm a fan of this genre of melodic rock and metal. Some bamds I like are Sevendust, Shinedown, Daughtry, Rev Theory, etc. That said, this is a good album; a bit more aggressive than their 1st album. I liked their 1st better because of the song structure, however this still sounds good and has meaningful, painful lyrics with excellent guitar work. Not disappointed though the 1st album grabbed me quicker. All in all, nice job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, Brillant Sophmore Album March 29, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Back with their second album, the Veer Union has really outdone themselves here. This is a great album all around. Solid vocals and great guitars and emotion throughout. Best songs are Bitter End, I Will Remain, Inside Out Scars, and Divide the Blackened Sky (which is the perfect name for the album and probably the best song IMO).

Very underrated and great album! 5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid performance, poor mastering June 22, 2012
By Zefram
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The other reviews on the content and musicality of this album are accurate and I enjoyed the material.

The only fly in the ointment, which I notice is shared by a large number of the hard rock albums I have purchased over the last couple years, is the approach taken in an attempt to make the material as "loud" as possible. The result is most noticeable on the track "Silent Gun". During the choruses the audio "pumps and breaths" so severely it is truly distracting.

The band is talented and it sounds like the original recording was solid, but whoever mastered this album was clearly asleep at the wheel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band! April 23, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I had a chance to see these guys live recently and they really caught my attention. Great sounding and this new album is even edgier than their debut. Check out the song Bitter End. I really love both albums, but I thought I would write a short review on this one and give them props. If you have a chance, catch them at a live show. They won't dissapoint!

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet! April 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love TVU. There one of my favorite bands. There heavy hitting riffs, mixed with gorgeous harmonic vocals, and lead guitar overtones combine in just the perfect combination of awesomeness. I can't give this a five star rating however because of how short it is. 10 songs and barely over 30 minutes of new music, so you'll be hearing them over and over again in the car. Not a terrible thing, seeing as how great all the songs are...but still.

My favorite tracks are
1)Inside Our Scars
2)Silent Gun
3)Borderline

I was not to happy that it's a paper cd case. It would have been fine if the case was hard plastic.
