About The Band
in 2004 Chicago, Illinois from the ashes of disbanded death metal group Insurrection, certain members from that group weren't
quite done working with each other and pumping out their serious metal, joining together for a whole new project. The members
that carried over from Insurrection include Mark Okubo (guitar), Kris Higgler (bass), and Sam Applebaum (drums), with new
members Timothy Marshall and Adam Clemans joining their ranks as guitar and vocals respectively. They quickly got to work
recording a demo in 2005 and taking on a multitude of shows to grow their popularity and fans. With a minor lineup change,
the crew promptly went to work on creating their masterful debut album, "All Things Set Aside", released in 2006. It was through
their amazing and energetic live shows, tours, and interviews that they picked up enough steam to sign with Sumerian Records
in 2008, also releasing their sophomore effort "The Common Man's Collapse" that same year. After an intense touring regimen
to back the new album, Veil of Maya went to work on their third album [id], which when released in 2010 to rave reviews. They
have since released another album in 2012 and are hard at work on releasing their fifth album.
each member of Veil of Maya already well versed and honed in their craft of metal, it wouldn't be wrong to say that Veil of
Maya was a breakout band from the very start. But it could be said that the album that gained them the most attention chartwise
is likely to be their most recent releases of either "[id]" or "Eclipse" in 2010 and 2012 respectively. These albums both
made it onto a wide variety of album charts, with Eclipse making it all the way to the number 76 spot on the Billboard 200,
as well as getting into the top ten on two other charts. [id], however, made it onto five album charts, even making it to
the much sought after number one position on the Top Rock Albums chart.

known as progressive metal, but is classified as a distorted guitar sound that is palm-muted for effect. The style was pioneered
by famous metal band Meshuggah, but is currently being experimented with by a wide array of bands including Veil of Maya,
to great success.
