Veil of Maya Bio:
For the past two years Chicago based band VEIL OF MAYA have been touring non stop booking their own tours and self producing their own material with the “Do It Yourself” attitude. It wasn't until this past year when the band caught the attention of Sumerian Records who attended a live show of the band after being handed their full length “All Things Set Aside.” Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen had this to say about the band. “VEIL OF MAYA's work ethic and dedication not only speaks for itself, but so does their level of musicianship and songwriting. Very few bands can authentically mix elements of progressive metal, melodic death metal, thrash and hardcore brutality all while keeping the listener constantly interested. VEIL OF MAYA does this and that's why they will have a career for years to come.”
VEIL OF MAYA recently participated in The Death By Decibels Tour that happened this past November / December with Vader, Malevolent Creation, Cattle Decapitation, Light This City and Abigail Williams and also the Sumerianos tour which featured an entire lineup of Sumerian bands which included Born of Osiris in January 2008. They will stay busy throughout the year to support their Sumerian debut “The Common Man's Collapse” that will arrive in stores April 1st 2008 and will participate on the Thrash and Burn Tour featuring Darkest Hour and many more one month after the release of the bands album's release.
VEIL OF MAYA have acquired quite the fan base from extensive touring and word of mouth advertising. Their myspace which already has 20,000 friends is already gaining momentum for the bands new material with plays exceeding 5,000 and a comment list that fills up daily with eagerly awaiting fans for the new record!
