Veil Of Maya have streamed their upcoming album Matriarch which is officially released tomorrow over at Billboard a day early.
What do you think of the new album? Some controversy has come about of the new front-man Lukas Magyar adding in some clean vocals. After listening to the album it is apparent that it is not the total clean vocal domination that people thought it would be.
“We had been wanting to incorporate singing into our music for a while. We were even planning on having guest vocalists to help us before Lukas entered the picture. We got very lucky finding a dude that could both sing and scream. Lukas went beyond our expectations, so we decided to take it as far as we could.”
“Musically, I wanted to write our most accessible release. My goal was to maintain our progressive metal fans while also attracting new people that come from other musical backgrounds. Lyrically, Lukas wrote about the obstacles we face while pursuing our goals and overcoming them. Collectively, we wanted to make an inspiring, fresh and unique sound while still giving the familiar Veil vibe.”
