Veil of Maya have been shredding the hardcore and metal music scene since 2014, and 2017 is no exception. The Chicago, IL based band continues to dominate with their progressive metal sound, and it shows in their new album, False Idol out on October 20.
False Idol consists of 13 tracks and was released via Sumerian Records. While many would classify the album as being heavy metal, it still has a tuneful, hardcore vibe.
The combination of “traditional” singing and the angst of the heavy metal shout in ‘False Idol’ will have fans of different music genres entertained. As someone who has yet to dabble far into the metal scene, I’m finding favorites off the album such as 'Manichee' and if you’re looking for a good mix of heavy metal and rock, that’s the song for you.
Veil of Maya have also released music videos for ‘Overthrow’ and ‘Doublespeak,’ which can be tide you over until the full album is released tomorrow, 10/20/17.
If you’re a fan of Born of Osiris, Chelsea Grin, White Chapel, and others in the scene, then you’ll love Veil of Maya and ‘False Idol’ no doubt will quickly make your ‘most played’ list on iTunes/Spotify.
The classic punk, metal vibe of Veil of Maya is evident in False Idol and the live shows are not ones you’ll want to miss. The energetic and emotional aspects of every song will have plenty of angry finger pointing, stage diving, and jumping around. Who doesn’t love that?
In fact, Veil of Maya will be heading out on tour soon, beginning October 20 in Dallas, TX and wrapping up in Chicago, IL on November 4.
