And there we go, here it is: the new song by Veil Of Maya, which also marks the band’s very first output since 2015’s Matriarch! The song starts out with a very Eclipse-ish style, while especially the gutturals sound very dark and heavy. But fans of Lucas Magyar’s clean vocals will also be satisfied as there is a lot of it.
Before we go into detail, why don’t you listen to the track for yourself?
…has heavy break sections, slightly proggy metalcore riffing and a very post-hardore, catchy attitude when it comes to the chorus. This all ends up in an interesting mix that isn’t too far away from the band’s aforementioned latest output. And yet the song has a very dark vibe, mainly due to a musical manipulation in the harmonics. This was a very common technique within the movement of impressionism, and you will find a lot of these in the music of Claude Debussy, for example. The ending break even reminds of TesseracT, being a slow-paced, djenty break before getting into a very Sumerian-ish Born Of Osiris-breakdown. Those synthesizers match the sound of Veil Of Maya, but also sound a little too ‘common’.
On a side note: “Overthrow” will be the fourth song off the new album False Idol. It is set to be released on October 10th, which isn’t even a month more of time to go!
