Metalcore act Veil Of Maya have released a new track, entitled 'Subject Zero', and have announced that they are re-signing with Sumerian Records. They also announced a 2014 full length album which may come as a surprise due to the bands prior intention to release an EP.

You can listen to the track, and read about re-signing with Sumerian, right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLMK7VpSM6A

Yeah I was pretty unhappy about the lack of riffs. Theres one pretty cool riff right before that part at 3:00 and then the groove at 3:00 is nice. Pretty sure it's just a track to garner attention and be accecible to all the djent kids. I'm sure the rest of the VOM will have plenty of riffs. Marc is to good to waste those away.

OwMySnauze do you mean for production? If so I believe he is supposed to. It's either him or Diego from Volumes. Diego did this one.

Such a frustrating band. They have the chops and the creativity to make something really great but waste it aping a lesser band. But I suppose you could say that about almost any Sumerian band.

I'm sure they're only doing this to be more accessible for a track. I mean by standards of technicality Punisher was a super simple track compared to other stuff they have put out and the rest of the album was still pretty technical so I'm sure that's what's going on here. Marc isn't the kind of guy that would sacrifice artistic integrity for an entire album.

This actually has a lot of riffs in it granted they are deeper toned riffs. It's definitely not all 0's though, and it's super groovy. I like it. It's probably just me though, I enjoy patterns especially patterns that change slightly through out the song which this has a lot of.

I agree one what you said except for the riffs. There are only like two actual riffs in the song and a few grooves that aren't 0's. But the bass tone is sick and I feel like its a more concept driven song than anything.

Wow, they sound so much like BOO, right down to the vocals, the corny orchestration, and the ice cream truck synths.

Damn, I was hoping what with BOO being crap now, these guys could take their place...

The Common Mans Collapse is still these guys best album and they should rerecord they're debut. As for this song, its sick, I hope the new album is longer then half an hour for once too.

It's like these bands are writing their songs specifically for a live setting. So that they don't have to concentrate as hard on what they're playing and are free to do something else (whatever that is) while on stage.

Eh yeah now that I have listened to it a couple more times the ending does have a lot of 0's. Up until like 3 minutes though I felt like there were some cool sounding riffs haha... I need to stop playing video games when I'm listening to new music Xp

Yay for homogeneity! Frail Man's Collapse was fantastic but this... this is just pitiful. They need to quit if their going to write the exact same formula for every song and not challenge their own creativity. Open chord, open chord, open chord, chug chug chug gets pretty damn dull after the first time.

1.5/5

I feel that Eclipse was such a strong step in the right direction for this band that there is no possible way that this new album will be able to compare to it. That being said, song isn't horrible, it just isn't all that good.

"Sounds like a less exciting version of Machine by Born of Osiris. Would be a shit ton of fun in a concert though."

Saw these guys on their headliner and they opened with this track. It was extremely slow moving and obviously wasn't hitting it off with the crowd. Afterwards Unbreakable came on and everyone instantly got kicked up and excited. Veil definitely knows their old fans don't like this sound at all.

This song is a bit too ∆ for my tastes. I mean I like symphony and those lullaby bells and everything, but that doesn't fucking mean you no longer need to play actual stuff on the guitar
