The Veil, which both starred and was hosted by Boris Karloff, was to have served as a predecessor for such anthology/horror classics as The Twilight Zone and One Step Beyond. Yet financial difficulties kept the episodes from ever being aired on network TV. Each episode was based on actual accounts of some form of psychic phenomenon.

The Veils are a London-based indie/alternative band fronted by lead singer and songwriter Finn Andrews. Head of Rough Trade Records Geoff Travis has referred to Finn as “a young but maturing real artist in the vein of Nick Cave and David Bowie”.

Andrews left the UK early 2005 and embarked on a solo tour of America and Japan, eventually returning home to New Zealand where he found a new direction for the band. He spent the summer there rehearsing with high-school friends Liam Gerrard (keyboards) and Sophia Burn (bass) in Liam's bedroom, soon amassing an album's worth of material. When the trio returned to London they were joined by Dan Raishbrook (guitar) and Henning Dietz (drums), who completed the new line-up. They began recording sessions with producer Nick Launay in Los Angeles in early 2006. The resulting album 'Nux Vomica' had a darker, far heavier and more complex sound, augmented by string arrangements by ex Lounge Lizard Jane Scarpantoni, but also a newly found, highly animalistic energy. Lead singer Finn Andrews shows “rougher” and more experimental vocals on many of the songs such as 'Not Yet' and 'Jesus for the Jugular'. Two singles were released from the album: “Advice for Young Mothers to Be” (4 September 2006) and “One Night on Earth” (15 April 2007). Nux Vomica featured on 16 English and American critics' best of the year lists in 2006.
