Veil of Ashes

Veil of Ashes was an alternative band from Oakland, California that was a favorite in the San Francisco club scene. Though Christians, they felt that they wouldn’t and shouldn’t be confined to the church circuit, making them one of the first Christian bands to play a constant string of secular clubs and to appear with some of the major secular artists of the day. They helped pave the road for many of the Christian bands that are in the secular arena now.
