A two-piece metalcore band from Western Australia was formed in 2019. The band consists of Bob McGonnell on vocals and Davin Tranter on guitar. Being first cousins with similar tastes, Bob and Davin have had lots of experience working together on numerous projects in the past. Throughout 2019 and the beginning of 2020, hours of work were invested into recording and producing their debut EP, ‘Heaven Hold Me’. The aim of the EP was for the band to experiment with the overall sound they had established. A wide range of emotions is shown throughout the record’s seven tracks. Songs such as ‘Just My Friends’ and ‘She Left with the Plane’ are packed with fierce guitar riffs and heavy, unclean vocals. On the other hand, songs like ‘A Verse for You’ are a lot softer, home to soaring hooks and emotional guitar leads.
In 2021, A Sight in Veracity dropped their first full-length album, ‘We Did Things Differently’. The name of this album is about refraining from conformity and breaking free from the restricted confines of what your society may expect of you. From track 1 to track 9 is an experience of ever-changing moods and expressions. The lyrical content is relatable to many. Regret, insecurities, loneliness. ‘We Did Things Differently’ touches upon all of these things.
Moving forward in 2022, A Sight in Veracity will be releasing a series of 3 singles, leading up to their future EP, ‘Eternity Past’. The band has established a much heavier sound for these 3 songs, a sound that the band plans to continue on with in the future. Their new material is heavily influenced by the many modern elements of today’s metal scene while aiming to maintain a distinct writing style. This is only the start of what A Sight in Veracity plans to be a very busy year.
A Sight in Veracity returns with their second single for 2022, which can be seen as the ‘terrible’ twin to their previous release, ‘The Details of Life.’ This extreme metal composition is part of the band’s upcoming EP, ‘Eternity Past.’
Of all days, the making of this song began on Christmas Day. A day one mightn’t expect. But it was that afternoon that the band was experimenting with a few MIDI synthesisers and came up with the very tune that this song begins with. A basic, yet compelling theme that drove the band through their writing for the rest of the track.
A Sight in Veracity hadn’t at this point incorporated much sci-fi theming into their music before. This was a key distinction that they wanted to make with this track. Musically, it experiments a lot with modulation, tremolo and ring shifter plugins. It was certainly outside the status quo for the band, as their music typically centres around large ambient leads that would usually have more of an established melody. The raw, cutthroat power of this song is what was intended to make it hit all the heavier.
