Veil of Maya are one of those bands that I only came to like in the last few years. The band never interested me before their album Eclipse. That album is fucking phenomenal and I have been seriously looking forward the checking out some of the bands new material. The band has release a new track titled “Teleute” and it’s pretty badass. I can’t wait to check out the rest of Veil Of Maya‘s new record Matriarch. Check out “Teleute” down here. Continue reading
Just when I thought that no one would be writing a song about everyone’s favorite learn-at-your-own-pace college, Veil Of Maya have done it! Kidding, of course, but for reals, The Veil has lifted and the band is streaming their first new track with new vocalist Lukas Magyar. the track is very strong and I cannot wait to hear what else VoM have in store for us all. BOOM. Continue reading
All week Veil Of Maya have been teasing that they would release a new track at midnight on October 30th and, right on the dot, they did. The new track is called “Subject Zero” and it destroys. I have stated in the past that I was not a fan of Veil Of Maya before they released their last album Eclipse last year and, after hearing this track, I can say that the band still has my attention. Check out the track after the jump. The song will be available to download on November 11th. Continue reading
Veil of Maya have revealed the tour dates from their upcoming North American headlining run. Veil of Maya will be supported by the likes of Struc/tures, Vildhjarta, Northlane and Here Comes the Kraken throughout the tour. More dates are slated to be announced but here is how the trek is currently shaping up:
I got into Veil Of Maya with the release of their 2012 album Eclipse, which almost landed on my Best of 2012 List last year. It’s a phenomenal album that I still listen to consistently because I don’t tire of it. The band has unveiled a new music video for the songs “20/200″ and “Divide Paths.” The video is strange, but very cool. I really dig these songs and seeing them in a cinematic fashion just makes it better. Check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
Metallic hardcore group, Twitching Tongues, have just released a video for the song “Preacher Man” off of their latest EP of the same name. Shot entirely in black and white, the beautifully lighted video for “Preacher Man” is basically a well shot performance video with some cool effects and occasional allusions to the theme of the song. A song which according to an interview with John Hoffman/Caution of Weekend Nachos(in his zine Spilled Blood) is about how the mother of brother members Colin and Taylor left their father for a priest. Stream the awesome video below, pick up the EP from Closed Casket Activities here and be sure to catch Twitching Tongues on their upcoming and officially weirdest tour with Veil of Maya, The Acacia Strain, Upon A Burning Body and Volumes(dates below). Also, Keith At Chain. Continue reading

Set to shoot off sometime around Thanksgiving is this massive co-headlining tour between progressive metallers Veil of Maya and chug fest deathcore giants The Acacia Strain. While I can’t say that VoM or Acacia Strain are in my relevant interests, their latest and most recent albums were decent and enjoyable listens in my personal opinion. Support for the tour comes in directly from San Antonio deathcore act, Upon A Burning Body, LA djenters Volumes, and from out of fucking nowhere, LA metallic hardcore act, Twitching Tongues. And so this tour has something for everyone, something for the half way prog metal, half way deathcore crowd, something for the straight up deathcore crowd, something for those up and coming djenters, and something for the no-bullshit hardcore crowd. Check out the dates after the jump courtesy of Metal Injection. Continue reading
