Andrew from Meth. is stoked to hype this band up in hopes of getting taken out on tour where he can expose himself to more 14 yr old girls

Solid, angry, and powerful intro. Really sets the tone. Verses gave me vibes from older Frontierer and as odd as it may sound Sectioned. The switch ups and tempo changes in the choruses are catchy and slick. The outro has a soft, contemplating tone to send us off with. That whisper "no one will save you..." brief silent pause "not even the skies themselves...AHHH!!!" Killer track. 5/5 personally.

^ Take it easy Billy, they know you like them

This rules. Nü-metal is BACK, baby -Chad Fjerstad

anonymous 5/8/2018 4:15:49 PM

^ nu already had its chance and crested with nu core already crested in 2016. this is try hard mallcore for wanabes meshed with some early to mid 00s norma jean rip off riffs. trash

anonymous 5/8/2018 4:22:36 PM

This band is wack and not hardcore. They should also change their name as there's already a band called Vein from Massachusetts. 'Ran across a show they playe in CT and it was less then ten people "dancing" - I laughed really hard esp. at the fat dude kicking up his leg to his hand.

fourthgradecocktease 5/8/2018 4:35:55 PM

^ people go nuts for them in cali but they're really nothing special, just more young bands playing the "revival" style

anonymous 5/8/2018 7:17:05 PM

Let's clear some shit up.......... Coal Chamber, Marilyn Manson, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Type O Negative, Prong, Powerman 5000, White Zombie and all the other stupid ass nu-metal bands of the 90s weren't cool back then and they aren't cool now. Period. I don't give a fck what any soft ass dipshit says on this website........ those bands were garbage.

anonymous 5/8/2018 7:24:04 PM

^^^^^ that being said, this numetal/mall-core/2000s metalcore thing is even worse than all of that. Vein just proved that all of these young, easily swayed, popularity chasing, c-ck gobblers will listen to anything they are sold. Closed Casket quickly became the "cool guy" label that actually fcking sucks dck. I've actually loved watching the unraveling of this entire music scene. It doesn't have any substance anymore and is made up of a bunch of sheep who will do whatever they are told.

anonymous 5/8/2018 10:53:59 PM

This band is wack and not hardcore. They should also change their name as there's already a band called Vein from Massachusetts. So this band should change their name because the local dog shit act is playing at Ralph's on Tuesday? You got to me fcking kidding me. The only thing wack here is you.

anonymous 5/9/2018 12:07:17 AM

Shane Michael XVX here. Can I get in on some of this fame real quick

anonymous 5/9/2018 5:22:23 AM

This bands music isn't terrible. The windbreaker hype/herd mentality definitely is but on a strictly musical tip, I can enjoy this. However, the cringe is very real whenever I hear anyone say these guys will be the next Dillinger Escape Plan. Not gonna happen. "_"

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:09:50 AM

Audio equivalent of eating horse muff. Nick and Tony you're gay. Fight me at band practice.

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:29:16 AM

token black kid on bass, ala turnstile

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:34:15 AM

sounds like Bird Of Ill Omen for kids who like Heavens Die

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:37:24 AM

another hype band no one will care about after the full length, onto the next thing: sadboy-soundcloud-core

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:38:49 AM

Norma Jean here, will all you dorks stop stealing our sh*t, thanks. We will be sending a cease and desist to code orange as well

anonymous 5/9/2018 6:44:42 AM

these dudes prob LOVED bring me the horizon 5 years ago. Something tells me they got hard into anything on BBB and lockin out in 2014, had bleach blond hair and wore Hawaiian shirts with little short chubby shorts, then got bit by the metalbore bug like everybody else 2 years ago now wana act tough LOL OK

anonymous 5/9/2018 8:59:01 AM

lots of unnecessary gore in this, we get it, you like old bleeding through videos

anonymous 5/9/2018 9:01:48 AM

best part is the breakbeat samples, more of that in hardcore please :)

anonymous 5/9/2018 2:32:48 PM


anonymous 5/9/2018 5:49:23 PM

Dang, this was actually pretty disappointing. After hearing so many people compare this band to early Converge I was not at all expecting to hear nu-metal. Well done for what it is, but apparently had my expectations set too high. -TJ Cinnamons

anonymous 5/10/2018 6:35:45 AM

merch swap f*ggots are stoked

anonymous 5/10/2018 8:58:34 AM

So this band should change their name because the local dog shit act is playing at Ralph's on Tuesday? You got to me fcking kidding me. The only thing wack here is you. ...says the dork who wouldn't dare say that to Keith Bennett's face (good friend of the band who posted your boys are using a taken name cuz they have no respect, is how I found out.) Look up Keith on Facebook and run your keyboard mouth to him in the real world - he plays for Panzerbastard.

anonymous 5/10/2018 11:48:20 AM

^ panzerbastard is for smelly poor people like you.

anonymous 5/10/2018 2:09:26 PM

literally who is Keith Bennett? literally who is Panzerbastard? I tried looking them up and got like, some pitiful social media pages with next to nil fans. I can't even find anything about Vein from MA. Seriously when does your fat fck 50something dad friends playing their favorite covers at Scooter's Dive on the weekends qualifies as "ownership" of a name.

anonymous 5/10/2018 5:10:29 PM

This sounds like a better American Me and is that a compliment or an insult you be the judge

anonymous 5/10/2018 5:46:50 PM

I see the punkass wackass bitch from MA is back. Who is Keith Bennett? You lost your Boston hardcore cred. I would LOVE for you to call Keith a fat fck 50 year old hahaha. You know who and where he is, stop fronting.

anonymous 5/10/2018 5:54:03 PM

Btw dickhead, Vein isn't a big band, they just play all over cuz they live at home with the 'rents - how the fck else can they or any other hardcore band play out all over? Vein is at least a homestate headliner when they headline AND sell out a show with three no-draw locals at Hardcore Stadium in Cambridge, MA which holds 200-250 tops. Until then you can STFU about them.

anonymous 5/10/2018 5:56:11 PM

Hi original poster about Ralphs here. The vein you're talking about started in 2013, the same year as the vein posted above. You don't have your facts straight. You're an idiot.

anonymous 5/10/2018 6:20:42 PM

Keith Bennet here, anyone have any cocaine?

anonymous 5/10/2018 8:26:58 PM

Keith Bennett here, I'm scared of black people. Our REAL vein has one demo out with zero presence anywhere but we like to pretend we sell out shows (its easy, I just like to take our plays and imagine that's our crowd). You're not real boston hxc unless you've heard of my local opener bands! 1488!

anonymous 5/12/2018 12:02:54 AM

Hi original poster about Ralphs here.>> Yeah you're a pssy from Massachusetts who not only won't say shit to Keith Bennett's face, got it, dickwad. Your boys' Vein did not start in '13 & if it did why'd it take them 'til 2016 to be nationally known? Oh wait cuz they were a metal band who realized hardcore was where to get the shows, fests, tours & record deals.

anonymous 5/12/2018 12:06:04 AM

Hi we're Vein. We formed in 2013 and called ourselves that after a band from our state already had that name. Thing is we put more work into the band yo so we get to claim the name yo. Cuz our shittalking keyboard warrior gay male groupie from Wherevadaf*kisett, MA who talks shit about a dude who'd total him into Total said so.

anonymous 5/12/2018 12:08:00 AM

Yo we're Vein. We were metalcore 2013-16 until we found out that hardcore is where it's at: shows, tours, fests, record deals, so now we're hardcore but we discovered Slipknot and present to you a song off our new album inspired by them. MAHC 4 Life yo. They wanna be Rage Against The Machine so much it hurts.

anonymous 5/12/2018 12:11:11 AM

Ay we're Vein. We called ourselves that cuz it's only four letters thus easy to spell, remember, and put on a flyer, but actually, we meant to call ourselves Vain but the old drummer's mom made a banner spelling it "Vein" so it stuck. We're contemplating saying we're from Boston but decided not to cuz we wanna take the lead of Converge who we bite off of along with RATM.

anonymous 5/12/2018 7:41:46 AM

THEY DONT SOUND AT ALL LIKE CONVERGE OR RATM ARE YOU ALL DEAF???????!??!! Sounds more like Coal Chamber Kidz tbh

anonymous 5/12/2018 12:00:44 PM

^you can't expect a butthurt sub brick IQ boy toy of Keith Bennetts spam posting in a fit of rage to know how to compare music. Keith's done too much blow so I doubt his gross synthoil arms could do anything besides explode into viscera if he takes his hand off the bass guitar. I'd wager that scrawny tranny from Of Mice and Men could kick Keith's bloated ass and the entirety of """Vein""" into a shallow grave if he wanted.

anonymous 5/14/2018 1:15:20 PM

Keith was only in some bar band called Wrecking Crew. What a bunch of 80s fruits.
