Veith Offenbächer is a well known and experienced German guitarist born in 1976. In 2006 he joined the German band Dawn of Destiny whom he released five albums with as well as guesting on their sixth album. Veith has also toured around Europe several times with Dawn of Destiny. Apart from the DoD recordings Veith has also contributed guitar to the fifth album of Consortium Project ”V – Species”. Early 2015, after a final tour, Veith left Dawn of Destiny and Germany and moved with his family to Sweden. Veith had been a fan of Destiny since the early nineties. A couple of years ago he met Stefan Björnshög which in turn last year led to a guest appearance on the Destiny album ”Climate Change”. So it was only natural that after his relocation to Sweden that he would eventually end up in Destiny, who already had plans to add an extra guitarist as compliment to Michael Åberg.
