Thursday, October 31, 2013 5:12 AM PT

Chicago, IL metal outfit Veil of Maya has re-signed with Sumerian Records. To coincide with the announcement, the band has premiered their forthcoming single "Subject Zero":

Veil of Maya comments: "We are very happy to re-sign with Sumerian Records. We have built a long-lasting relationship with the people there, and believe that they are stronger then ever. We couldn't see our band going anywhere else after our history, so therefore Sumerian has been and will continue to be the label the band calls home.

"As a band, we feel like we have grown tremendously. We are all ready, focused and want to put out the hardest material possible. The new stuff that has been written is some of the best Veil yet. We are really excited to see everyone out on our next headlining tour. We feel this tour is a great mix of bands, most of which haven't been to America before, so let's make sure they feel welcomed here. We are stoked for everyone to hear the new track we just released and see what we have been preparing. Expect a new VOM full length album in 2014 via Sumerian Records. See you all soon."

Meanwhile, Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen states: "For years, Veil of Maya has been a flagship heavy band for Sumerian and continues to play a crucial role in our progressive metal movement. I am very grateful and excited to have such a talented, hardworking and sagacious group of dudes in the family for many more years to come."

The new single "Subject Zero" will be available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon MP3 November 11th.

Too bad their production always neuters their heaviness and the vocals are shit. Otherwise I might actually listen to this band every once in a while.

Band definitely has talent but for some reason I always get bored with their music (as with sumerian's other technical deathcore bands like BOO and the faceless). Still probably one of the stronger bands on this label and for this style of music. Ash made a good move re-signed them and dropping capture the crown.

imagine being on a record label in 2013

Record labels still exist? And bands still wanna be on them? Too lazy to put your music on iTunes yourself? Like being broke and in debt?

i'm not sure i heard one riff in that entire song

Love all their albums but its all studio magic. You can hardly tell what they're playing live. Sloppy shit show.

It just seems every 'chug' is noise suppressed to the ninth. It doesn't sound organic or even real. You could have just rung out an open chord and then chopped it with production. Meh.

No studio magic when it comes too the guitarist n drummer both super talented.. hell throw in the bassist despite the fact u can't ever hear him but definitely a talented bassist. Pleasg get someone who has some evil ass vocals this guys wierd ass inhales are starting too be a huge weakness didn't really mind it before but i was in high school back then n i was wierd af
