Veil Of Maya

Underneath a maelstrom of polyrhythmic guitars, sweeping vocals, and shuddering beats, Veil of Maya
encode a ponderous narrative at the core of their sixth full-length album, False Idol [Sumerian Records].
This time around, a captivating concept drives the quartet—Marc Okubo [guitar], Sam Applebaum
[drums], Danny Hauser [bass], and Lukas Magyar [vocals].

By channeling energy in one direction, force grows exponentially. Veil of Maya harness the individual
experiences and talents of four distinct musicians—Marc Okubo [guitar], Sam Applebaum [drums], Danny
Hauser [bass], and Lukas Magyar [vocals]—into airtight groove-laden metal accented by fits of
instrumental virtuosity and vocal catharsis. This approach has endeared them to a devout fan base with
critical acclaim and over 100 million total streams and counting (unprecedented for an outfit this
crushingly heavy). The Chicago band draw on the strength of their union on their seventh full-length
offering, [m]other [Sumerian Records].
