Today, Metalsucks hosted the premiere of a new Veil of Maya song, “Namaste”. It’s unmastered, but it still sounds good. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the final version of the song we heard them play live with the LOST inspired breakdown:

I’m thinking I really like the new song, but Mitch doesn’t (to put it lightly). Here’s an excerpt from our conversation:

Jimmy says:
I actually like it
Mitch says:
I’m going to stop Atheist for this, and I’m going to hate myself for it.
Jimmy says:
Dont bother then I guess
Mitch says:
this guitar tone is pretty awful.
Jimmy says:
It’s unmastered
Mitch says:
oh
just noticed that
Jimmy says:
I’d say it’ll be better
Mitch says:
it’ll still sound shit on the album anyway, just with a bunch dumb effects THREE POUNDS OF REVERB, NOISE GATING ETC ETC
and this is still just bad deathcore.
Jimmy says:
Well I dig it. I dunno
It’s like a more melodic Meshuggah I guess
Mitch says:
if all Meshuggah played was breakdowns instead of weird accented riffs, maybe.

Mitch and I disagree on various subjects. This is nothing new at all though. Comments on various articles I post should tell you this, if you read the site enough.

Anyhow, I like it. I’m into Sumeriancore anyway. If you didn’t like Veil of Maya before, this won’t change your mind. If you loved them before, you should (in theory) love “Namaste”.

VoM’s new album (id) (or is it [id]?) is out April 6th on, you guessed it, Sumerian Records.
