Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , on June 29, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Veronica Freeman - The V - Now Or Never - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0629MONIHLS

Veronica “The V” Freeman‘s forthcoming debut studio album, NOW OR NEVER, has a new release date of July 24th, 2015, via Frontiers Music srl. In my Metal opinion, Veronica Freeman is a powerful vocalist within the Hard Rock and Metal Universe. Veronica can sing on both the melodic and potent side of the tracks.

As a vocalist for Arizona’s superb Metal band Benedictum, Veronica Freeman has earned the worldwide praise of both fans and press; now it’s time for fans both old and new to be blown away by the diverse and convincing vocals that she delivers on her debut solo album: The VNow Or Never. I’ve been blown away by The V!

Below, listen to and enjoy three new songs from The V, all featured on her new album Now Or Never. Excellent songs, they are. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

The V – Again (Official Audio)

The V – Line In The Sand (Official Audio)

The V – Starshine (Official Audio)
