Biography

Oak Park, Chicago IL, United States (2004 – present)

Veil of Maya is an American band, formed in Oak Park, Illinois by members Marc Okubo and Sam Applebaum in 2004. The group is currently signed to sumerian records, have released four full-length studio albums, the latest being Eclipse, and are often considered to be a contributor in the “djent” scene. The name of the band is derived from the Cynic song of the same name. The band originally took use of multiple guitar players, but since 2007 Okubo has been the only guitarist the band employs.

Veil of Maya originally formed after band Insurrection broke-up, which led to members Marc Okubo (lead guitar) and Sam Applebaum (drums) to begin a new project. Okubo and Applebaum were joined by bassist Kris Hilger, guitarist Timothy Marshall and vocalist Adam Clemans; who all decided on naming the band Veil of Maya.

After recording a demo in 2005, the band inducted guitarist Scott Okarma into the group in 2006 while they played and booked shows in their local area. With Okarma’s inception, Veil of Maya at this point were a six piece that employed three guitarists, however, both Marshall and Okarma shortly thereafter left the band, and the members found Bryan Ruppell to replace them both.

With this five member line-up, the band recorded, self-produced and released their debut full-length album All Things Set Aside through Corrosive Recordings in 2006.

    Another case of bands with excellent instrumentals with an emo vocalist.

    These guys have been listening far too much to the progressive metalcore bands they inspired..... [3]

    These guys have been listening far too much to the progressive metalcore bands they inspired..... [2] I was afraid this might happen. The new song is indeed pretty awful.

    Nobody commenting on how the intro section is basically the intro from Wounds? And yes, that track is just missing the usual dose of awesome VoM-riffs. Every band in this genre plays these riffs.

    It's truly looking like now that the underground is the only part of this scene experimenting now (e.g. Entitites, Lorna Shore, The Room Colored Charlatan etc.) :(

    That new song is really cheap. I can't even count how many other deathcore bands did exactly the same shit and now Veil of Maya are in that downwards-spiral too. Great job.

    I've tried to appreciate the new song, but for a band that's had such a genuine sound in the past (compared to said new song), just disappointing. Doesn't sound like them. No wonder Brandon left.
