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.

    Do they still plan on dropping the EP before the end of the year?

    yeah they have had chugging on every record and by the fifth it gets fucking old. The melody is cool in subject zero but everything else has been done before and for me it's quite frankly a yawn fest. but I'm biased as I only really listen to viking and black metal nowadays

    I like Subject Zero and anyone who is complaining clearly never really listened to VoM. They have a lot of chugging, groove oriented songs on EVERY record. There will for sure be some more technical songs on the record.

    Subject Zero has grown on me quite a bit, but I really wouldn't mind if these guys experimented a lot more because it's just nothing new for them (goes for this genre as a whole right now too I guess.) Just feels like nowadays that progressive deathcore has to be made a certain specific way to be 'progressive' even though it didn't used to be this way :P.
