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!!

Biography
HOME TOWN: Chicago, IL
MEMBERS:
Brandon Bulter - Vocals
Marc Okubo - Guitar
Matt Pantelis - Bass
Sam Applebaum - Drums

The midwest is a place that is overlooked by many... It is too bad because the midwest has given birth to some of the most progressive metal bands to come out in a long time. VEIL OF MAYA hails from the suburbs of Chicago and having played regionally and toured for 2 years in support of their debut full length "ALL THINGS SET ASIDE" on Corrosive, they have definitely made some waves...

VOM closed 2007 by supporting Vader and the Death By Decibels tour only to enter 2008 to prepare to release their highly anticipated Sumerian debut full length. Catch VEIL OF MAYA on the Sumerianos tour w/ BORN OF OSIRIS, AFTER THE BURIAL and SEA OF TREACHERY this January and also with A LIFE ONCE LOST and ARSIS this spring.

Their Sumerian debut "THE COMMON MANS COLLAPSE" will hit stores APRIL 1ST 2008!
