VEX AND THE BURNING VEILS

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM VEX AND THE BURNING VEILS

In a whirlwind of roaring guitars and gritty vocals, VEX & THE BURNING VEILS thrust us into the tumultuous world of “Stuck on Ward 15.” Hailing from the streets of Derby, this hard-rock outfit brings a refreshing blend of ferocity and wit to the table.

Inspired by personal experiences and laced with biting social commentary, “Stuck on Ward 15” isn’t your typical rock anthem. No, it’s a rebellious battle cry against the shortcomings of our healthcare system. VEX’s vocals pierce with a raw intensity, echoing the frustrations of both patients and healthcare workers alike.

From the opening riff, it’s clear that VEX & THE BURNING VEILS aren’t here to mince words. The track bulldozes through the speakers, fueled by blistering guitar work and pounding drums. It’s a sonic assault that demands attention, refusing to shy away from the harsh realities it confronts.

But amidst the searing guitars and thunderous percussion lies a streak of dark humor. The medically themed lyrics serve as a sharp critique of the broken system, yet there’s a sardonic edge to their delivery that adds a layer of irony to the chaos. It’s as if VEX & THE BURNING VEILS are saying, “Yes, the situation is dire, but let’s not forget to laugh at the absurdity of it all.”

However, while “Stuck on Ward 15” undoubtedly packs a punch. At times, the relentless energy of the track threatens to overwhelm, leaving little room for nuance or subtlety. A touch more restraint could have elevated the song from a powerful outcry to a truly transcendent anthem.

Yet, despite its rough edges, there’s an undeniable authenticity to VEX & THE BURNING VEILS’ music. They wear their hearts on their sleeves, unafraid to tackle tough subjects head-on. “Stuck on Ward 15” is more than just a song; it’s a rallying cry for change, a reminder that even in the darkest of times, music has the power to ignite hope and inspire action.

So, as we spin “Stuck on Ward 15” for the umpteenth time, we can’t help but feel a surge of adrenaline. VEX & THE BURNING VEILS may be stuck on Ward 15, we WANT MORE!
