There are many, many artists in music today, from Pop to Metal that would not be who they are or where they are without YouTube. The possibilities are endless when the right song or video begins to make the rounds and ends up achieving ‘viral’ status that was typically never expected or intended. And while that type of infectious sharing is never the case with Extreme Metal, bands and artists consistently creating content can still manage to reach a much larger audience through YouTube’s massive (google enhanced) reach and suggestive sidebar links.
Knowing all of that, The Kennedy Veil‘s own Gabe Seeber has decided to get more involved in creating content for fans to watch and share around. The first of several upcoming Drum Playthroughs to be released, is ‘Mental Crucifixion,’ a track by melodic tech death band Vale of Pnath, from the 2011 album, Prodigal Empire. You can check out the playthrough video at this location or below:
Also be sure to subscribe and stay tuned to Gabe’s YouTube Channel to be the first to see all of the upcoming drum playthrough videos he has planned for 2015.
2014 was a banner year for Gabe, with The Kennedy Veil releasing their debut album, ‘Trinity of Falsehood‘ on January 21, 2014 via Unique Leader Records, and immediately hitting the road in support of the album alongside labelmates Lord of War and Arkaik. Gabe was also a member of Sacramento tech death outfit and Unique Leader labelmates, Alterbeast. Gabe re-recorded the drums for what would become that band’s UL debut album, ‘Immortal,’ which saw a release in March of 2014.
In late Spring of 2014, Gabe confirmed that he would once again be the touring drummer for Decrepit Birth for their Summer Slaughter Tour run, alongside death metal legends Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus and more. About a month after returning home from Summer Slaughter, Gabe hit the road with Alterbeast, alongside Chelsea Grin and headliners Suicide Silence and The Black Dahlia Murder for a month-long tour across North America, which included being a part of the VIP Kick Off Party for Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA. In late 2014, Gabe officially parted ways with Alterbeast in order to focus more on The Kennedy Veil.
