As I’m sure all of you have heard through the grapevine, Veil of Maya‘s new vocalist is reported to be one Lukas Magyar. Every website and their mother may be reporting on this at the moment, but we still have an obligation to bring our readers our thoughts and feelings on the matter! After the jump, you can check out some examples of Magyar’s silky smooth voice, as well as his not so silky smooth voice after the jump.
I know that the other sites are sharing the video of him performing an acoustic rendition of his band Arms of Empire‘s song ‘Clouds’, but this clip is a bit shorter and straight to the point. You can tell that he has an excellent voice right off the bat, sounding like Jonny Craig with his rasp and soul, which is a huge positive to me when it comes to a band and clean vocals. If they’re going to take the clean vocal route, then they chose the right guy to lead them down it.
If you want a taste of how his screaming sounds, as well as his cleans outside of a cellphone recording, check out his band’s full-length album Energy below.
Now, we wait for the official confirmation.
