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:
I actually like it
I’m going to stop Atheist for this, and I’m going to hate myself for it.
Dont bother then I guess
this guitar tone is pretty awful.
just noticed that
I’d say it’ll be better
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.
Well I dig it. I dunno
It’s like a more melodic Meshuggah I guess
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.
