Currently on tour supporting The Devil Wears Prada, progressive metal band Veil Of Maya have released their 6th album, False Idol, which can be streamed below. It’s VOM’s longest album yet, clocking in at 45 minutes and 13 songs, and boasts some of their most technically impressive material yet – especially exciting tracks like “Livestream”.
What are your thoughts on the album? Sound off below.
Our photojournalist Savannah Rowley recently attended the Orlando date of the No Sun, No Moon Tour featuring The Devil Wears Prada, Veil of Maya, Silent Planet, and Thousand Below. The tour is about halfway through, you can get tickets for upcoming dates here.
Thousand Below opened up the show. Originating from San Diego, CA this is only the band’s second tour. Playing songs such as “Never Here” and “Tradition” off of their recently released album The Love You Let Too Close. The band warmed up the crowd for the acts to follow.
6 albums into their career, progressive metalcore band Veil Of Maya have proven themselves to be a solid, occasionally spectacular outfit. 2015’s Matriarch was the band’s most successful venture yet, hitting the #58 position on the Billboard Top 200, as well as the arrival of new vocalist Lukas Magyar. The album was a bit polarizing due to the use of singing for the first time on any VOM album, but by all accounts that album cycle was a success.
The band’s 6th full-length album, False Idol, drops October 20th – and now the band has premiered a new song off the album, “Overthrow”. You can check out the track below.
Vans Warped Tour is one of those legendary festivals that always hosts some of the best bands in the rock/metal/hardcore scene. Warped 2016 was no exception by the slightest! It was filled with good times, friends, bands, mosh pits, stage dives, high fives, fun in the sun & great memories among other things. I had the opportunity to cover both the Pomona, CA & Phoenix, AZ dates of the tour.
Below is a recap video of both days along with photo galleries of the bands: Volumes, Every Time I Die, The Color Morale, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Vanna, Waka Flocka, Motionless In White, Gideon, Oceans Ate Alaska, Veil of Maya, In Hearts Wake & Cruel Hand.
