Progressive metal band Wilderun pursues 2019 record Veil of imagination with Epigone, now available through Century Media Records. The LP includes the advanced singles “Passenger”, “Distraction I” and “Identifier”. “It’s definitely a ‘meta’ record for me,” guitarist and singer Evan Berry said in press materials. Bassist / composer Dan Muller added, “This record has a different kind of inner upheaval than Veil of imagination. Much of this album focused on the past and recalled the progression from childhood to adulthood, and had a brighter, more flowery texture. This one is darker and seems more introspective to me.
