VEIL OF MAYA ARE DOWN WITH RUDYARD KIPLING
I can’t understand what the hell Veil of Maya vocalist Brandon Butler is saying in the band’s new song, “Mowgli” – it sounds like he’s saying something closing a gate to a casket – so I’m not sure what the track’s thematic connection is to the hero of The Jungle Book. But I am sure that this is Sumeriancore at its finest: brutal, technical, distilled chaos. Check it out here.
The track comes off of VOM’s latest, [id], which comes out April 6 on (doy-hickey) Sumerian, in a variety of appealing cover colors (above). To entice you further, the band has also released a delightful album promo, which you can check out after the jump.
Thanks to Tim Shanks for the tip!
