American metalcore band Veil of Maya will be headlining Saarang Rock Show as part
of their very first Indian tour this year. Previous editions have seen crowds of over
6000 rocked by the likes of Opeth, Karnivool and Parikrama.
Veil of Maya was founded by Mark Okubo, Sam Applebaum and Kris Higler. Their
first four albums were Deathcore albums, with [id] peaking at #1 in the US Heats.
With the release of Matriarch, and several lineup changes, they diverged into
metalcore, with elements of djent and deathcore.
The band is known for their heavy and intricate guitar-laden sound. At their live
shows, elements of death metal with theatrical samples that transition between
each live song form the full-frontal assault of savage guitar work. Their progressive aggressive take on modern metal delivers low bass tones and mystifying song
Their newest singles Overthrow and Doublespeak, from their sixth album False Idol
are showing the new era of Veil of Maya, one of definite excitement.
