Veil of Maya will be taking over Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Saint Paul on Tuesday, March 19th for a heavy show that should not be missed!
The Chicago based Veil of Maya have definitely taken the hard road to success grinding it out on the road through countless tours over the years, but now that backbreaking schedule is paying off tenfold. This quartet are one of the few very bands that can authentically mix elements of progressive metal, melodic death metal, thrash and hardcore brutality together effectively, all while keeping the listener constantly interested with baited breath wondering just what is coming next. This is exactly why they will have a career for years to come.
With their third full-length album, Eclipse, they continued to blend Meshuggah-esque riffs, shreddy solos and haunting melodies into a compelling package that garnered high acclaim from fans and media alike. With his overflowing riff bank in hand, the group have continued to churn out new material. The results are even more jagged and heterogenous with dizzying guitar savagery, jazz chords and fragmented leads congealing in a swarm of blast beats. Veil of Maya are firing on all cylinders and remain one of the top artists within the genre never adhering to any preconceived ideals further pushing the envelope with each new track they create.
Joining Veil of Maya will be Strawberry Girls. Strawberry Girls is a 3-piece progressive instrumental rock band from Salinas, CA. They formed in April 2011, shortly after guitarist, Zachary Garren, parted ways with his previous band Dance Gavin Dance. Garren then became acquainted with drummer Benjamin Rosett and bass guitarist Ian Jennings and subsequently began writing and recording music as Strawberry Girls. They’ve released 3 self-recorded albums through Tragic Hero Records. They’re currently writing and demoing material for a new album coming in 2019. Over the past few years, they’ve toured with bands such as The Contortionist, Chon, Polyphia, mewithoutYou, Dance Gavin Dance, Pianos Become The Teeth, Silent Planet, Night Verses, Sianvar, Movements, A Lot Like Birds, and more.
Also joining in on the fun will be Intervals and Crytpodira.
