Veil of Maya – Matriarch (2015)

This was the album that Veil of Maya needed to make. No offense to their previous works, which were great in their own regard, but this is a total revamp for the band. 

Thankfully the instrumental aspect of the band is still on top of their game. However, with Brandon Butler being replaced by Lukas Magyar, you’ll notice the change in vocalists right off the bat. Lukas is different, and likes to delve into cleans every now and then. This doesn’t hinder it by any means, as he is as effective as Brandon was. 

I know this disappointed some, but as for me, I personally think it’s their best since I copped All Things Set Aside way back in the day.
