The Kennedy Veil have returned, and more fiercely than ever. Their latest album, Imperium, hits the streets through Unique Leader on October 20 and their first offering, “Flesh of the Sun,” is pulverizing, fluid and—of course— technically impressive. Oh, and it features guest vocals from The Black Dahlia Murder‘s Trevor Strnad.
“The world of metal has become flooded with your quintessential ‘tech’ bands,” says drummer Gabe Seeber. “It seems to me that many metal bands of today put so much focus on cramming as many notes as possible into songs, and playing the most difficult riffs with less focus on song structures as a whole. Without taking anything away from the obvious creativity and talent of today’s generation of death metallers, we in The Kennedy Veil are aiming to harken back to a more primal and aggressive form of the genre.”
