A stellar evening of local mystical doom-folk and fuzzed-out psychedelic pop
Forest Veil (formerly known as Moniker) is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist/producer Monica Metzler, based in Portland, OR. Following the echoes of her elusive muse, Forest Veil makes mystical "doom-folk" that maps the emotional terrain of humanity and its place in the cosmos.
Melding a voice that sounds like smokey quartz with psychedelic guitar riffs, and enigmatic lyricism, Forest Veil’s sound evokes a haunting nostalgia for other worlds and connects her in a web of resonating strings to the troubadours of time. Though she writes and records on her own, Forest Veil plays live shows with a full band (drums, bass, guitar, and keys/synth).
