Whilst I was searching for After The Burial songs on YouTube, I happened to stumble across a band called Veil Of Maya - the link was made between the two bands because they are both signed to Sumerian Records. So I thought I'd give this album a shot - and I wasn't disappointed. These guys have the same start/stop riffage as bands such as After The Burial and Meshuggah, and they also have the technical prowess to boot. All four guys in the band really know how to play their instruments, with tempos and song structures changing so fast you don't even have the time to utter the word 'METAL!' The only downside is that this album is only 10 tracks long and fairly short, but there's so much going on in every single song it's usually more than enough to keep you interested. Again, only a minor niggle, but sometimes the songs can run into one another so flawlessly that it seems like there's no more than a couple of tracks on the whole album. This could be seen as a lack of originality and may bore some listeners, but I guess it's just a case of 'If you're good at something, do it well.' And these guys certainly do it extremely well! If you're a fan of After The Burial, then these guys will be right up your street!
