To put it plainly, Vein’s debut full-length, Errorzone, hits like a ten ton hammer (Machine Head reference intended). The Closed Casket Activities band really have things set from day one, as their debut marries elements of modern hardcore, industrial, metalcore, nu-metal, and mathcore to create something that may just blow your mind.
Over the past couple years, a legion of bands have emerged that continue to redefine and reshape heavy music. Code Orange? Yeah, they were nominated for a Grammy. Sanction? Touring with The Black Dahlia Murder. You can add Vein to that list with their new single, “Virus://Vibrance”. The incendiary new track, which is off their debut full-length (errorzone, out in June via Closed Casket Activities), is like a cross between mid-period TDEP/Converge, and the more industrial influences of Slipknot/Fear Factory. In other words, fucking awesome. The riff-heavy new track borders on absolute insanity at times, and if this track is any indication, their incendiary live shows are about to get that much crazier.
Fans of metal and hardcore can now get excited knowing one of the heaviest tours of 2018 recently got announced. Headliners Harms Way will be supporting a new album, veterans Ringworm are joining up, and that’s not to mention the openers in Vein and Queensway, who everyone will be talking about after this tour is over.
Needless to say, 2018 just got a whole lot heavier. Hopefully this tour comes to your town.
