Veil Of Maya... Where Exactly Is Matthew Pantelis??
August 1, 2010
It's a question that's been asked recently by fans and even website/magazine writers and contributors who have attended Summer Slaughter
and not seen Matthew
on stage with VoM
... so what happened and where is he??
Well, I can't really tell you what all went down or why Matthew
isn't currently out on the road with Veil Of Maya
because I don't know the details... And even if I did, I wouldn't post anything here without proper confirmation first. Trust me, if I posted everything I knew on here the minute I found out about it, you'd be all over this site like flies on shit... er, something to that effect.
Anyway, for those that are more inclined to find out what Matthew's
been up to since his mysteriously departure from Veil Of Maya
, head on over and visit http://www.myspace.com/thelifechicago/music
. Jam the track "No Water
" and get an idea of what Matthew's
new project The Life
which is currently comprised of himself and Joe Phillips
, sounds like. The band's profile is also one of Myspace's new beta layouts. I'm not sure if they're a good or bad thing yet, but while you're there you can see how that all works too.
Oh, and if haven't already clicked that link above and you're still reading this.. don't go in expecting to hear anything similar to Veil Of Maya
. I know most artists that leave bands and start new music projects typically end up sounding just like the band they left, and it kind of ends up making no sense at all. Such is not the case here, so let go of any 'expectations', give this a shot and see what you think!
So there you have it... Check out The Life's
new tune, check out the lyrics at this location
, and Get Into It!!
