VEILED commented: “For The Black Rite we wanted to take everything that we had done before, musically and visually, to the next level. Everything we create is rooted in the universe we’re crafting, this helps us when creating the songs from the ground up, trying to tell a story, musically first and then building upon it from there, lyrically and with visuals. When writing we always write visually, thinking what we would put over this song cinematically, even if there doesn’t end up being a music video to that track.
“We wanted a name that summed up the entire EP. The Black Rite is a ritual taken from the ancient book within our music videos, so it only felt fitting to name the EP this, as the Rite is what summons “Ж”, the being from our stories. The Black Rite is what brought us together as a collective.
“All our lyrics build upon the stories that we are telling, be that explaining a certain characters feelings or explaining their intentions, or expanding on the back story. We have so many different versions of certain lines and lyrics and sift through each to find which ones fit best and have the best flow, while still having meaning. Sometimes we will have a story and see which song best fits the concept to tell it with, sometimes we will let the music completely dictate what story we tell.
“As a whole, we are so proud of this EP as everything just came together so organically and smoothly. We feel it’s sonically and visually the best product we have produced together and is a perfect introduction to us!”
