5.0 out of 5 stars Best songwriting I have ever heard in this genre October 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Most bands that get as heavy as VOM start to lose their creativity throughout albums but, VOM writes so that the listener does not become sidetracked while listening which makes them original in this genre. They are very talented musicians and were just on a tour with necrophagist!I would compare them to Necrophagist because of the low vocals, but VOM loves their off timing breakdowns that Necrophagist does not. Must have album!

5.0 out of 5 stars a big leap for modern deathcore April 7, 2008
By skeith
Format:Audio CD
Veil Of Maya's "The Common Man's Collapse" will not fail any true deathcore fan. It is very unique compared to other standard deathcore bands. With a great record label (Sumerian) and release, soon the whole world will be jamming this cd. This cd is nothing more or less than great musicianship, and these guys surely have a great future. Definitely worth the buy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic smooshing for the ages May 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Smoosh the melodicness of At the Gates or Black Dahlia Murder with the technical precison of Meshuggah and Beneath the Massacre and you get this. It is quite good, my buddy's band shared the stage with them recently and I sampled them on a whim finding them to be amazing. Most songs leave you windmilling lone after its over. Any "breakdowns" in this album are tight and techy enough to keep even a shred-type fan like myself interested. Each one isn't the pinnacle of the song like most bands who write breakdowns in. Amazing leads and drum work make all the more fun. highly recommended for Fans of The Faceless, Meshuggah, Black Dahlia Murder or Beneath The Massacre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Technical and Beautiful at the Same Time December 14, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Rarely does a deathcore or metal band in general combine extremely technical instrumental work with such creative guitar riffs. Okubo is an absolute genius and shines in this album. Awesomely unique guitar work, tight drumming and good vocals make this a solid album from Veil of Maya.

It's a bit dated at this point, but that only makes me appreciate it more. Great tracks, awesome (and clear) mixing, and insanely technical guitar and drums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic...in simplicity.
Great album, for actual metal fans. A nice distraction from the people who make you want to ram flaming toasters into their abdominal areas. 'Nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa, I just messed myself!
But seriously people. Veil of Maya will thump your eardrums into jelly. A big problem I have with some new metal bands is bad mixing. Not so here, I love this album. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Above and beyond the requested
As my title states, this band is doing more than making metal, they are doing a lot of hybrid styling.

Flat out is this metal? Yes. Is this album generic? Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars TIGHT musicianship!
Not exactly my taste in regards to the vocals (cookie monster vocals), but the musicianship in this band is phenominal. TIGHT, TIGHT relationship with all the instruments. Read more
