yeah, a lot of people are hating on this, but i dig it. i never liked their old stuff, either.

there's a good whole 2 minutes without any chugging. they've progressed.

Would have liked it more if they went back into the riff after the clean section, THEN into the breakdown.

That was pretty good, can't wait to hear the rest. I think The Common Man's Collapse will still be my favorite though, but maybe that's just because I've heard that album like over 9000 times

Obviously none of you above have listened to Common Man's or [id] much. It's a bunch of rehashed riffs just changed slightly, hoping no one will notice.

Band has been going downhill since [id].

one of the youtube comments:

"For all you´╗┐ emo pussies fucks..
I hope your queer-ass, v-neck, skinny jeaned, bitch singing, half-assed, mediocre, and over-used
breakdowns fucking die. Get fucking skill, no body likes a bitch trying to act tough.
Oh yeah,
Veil of Maya is song and I can't wait for the new album."

this song is good until the out of place breakdown

Not bad, not that good either.. Never heard a song by them and i'm not about to do so after hearing this..

Especially since everyone complains about the low amount of breakdowns (WTF??), which makes me think their older songs are filled with them.

Digging: Dornenreich - Freiheit

Never liked this band at all cause the vocals always sucked immensely. This sounds pretty decent. I'll probably give the full album a listen.

Also, lol at that YouTube comment.

Not bad, but the thin production kills it. Sounds a lot like BoO, as others have said.

this is pretty damn solid. seemed a little choppy with the middle interlude part into the breakdown at the end though.

sounds like they couldn't come up with anything better or something like that

i feel like they did the breakdown at the end because they pretty much had to. every veil of maya song that's ever been written has been "chug chug chug" and while it's a huge step in the right direction at how lacking the chug part is in this song besides the end, they can't really just drop the whole sound that got them to where they are. either that or sumerian was like "what the fuck bro, no breakdown?"

either way, i think it's really solid and i'm looking forward to this album.

I like how they brought back the riffing, because [id] was basically like "hey look how many weird chords we can chug on!" This sounds a lot more like something from The Common Man's Collapse, and I love that album. Pretty excited for this new album now, I was almost sure that they were going to continue down the path of mediocrity.

The only song they ever made that was better than We Bow In its Aura was It's Not Safe to Swim Today.

Song had high points, but I wasn't impressed.

I guess since I'm a guitarist I can appreciate the riffage Marc Okubo can occasionally dish out.

"either that or sumerian was like "what the fuck bro, no breakdown?"
"

that's what it was i promise. sumerian is kind of notorious for that. my friend's band signed a contract to sumerian and they ended up having to get out of the contract to release the album they wanted to because ash told them it needed more breakdowns to be marketable.
