Sacramento, California’s modern death metal titans THE KENNEDY VEIL have parted ways with vocalist Cody Walker and are currently seeking a replacement. The band is preparing to enter the studio to begin recording its new album, with the touring cycle set to kick off in spring/summer 2013.
Commented the group: “We are a professional band, and anybody trying out must present themselves in a professional manner.
“We are looking for someone dedicated to what we are doing and who is willing and able to contribute to the band and help out with any and all expenses that may come out of pocket. This means you must have a job (or some sort of income) and transportation/drivers license and passport are also must. If you are not willing or unable to tour, then please don’t waste anyone’s time. Also, NO hard drug users/addicts and no criminal history. This is not negotiable. We don’t need anyone with travel restrictions or inability to give 110% every night.
“We need a solid frontman with a commanding stage presence and ability to interact well with a crowd.
“If you are dedicated and ready to move to the next level with THE KENNEDY VEIL and begin the touring cycles, submit covers of ‘Disciples Of Dead Aeons’ and ‘Genesis Lamentations’ to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
“Genesis Lamentations” and “Disciples Of Dead Aeons” are available for streaming below.
According to the band’s official bio, THE KENNEDY VEIL has successfully avoided the used, abused and predictable hat tricks that have plagued the extreme metal underground for the last several years. Taking influence from pioneers like DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL and SUFFOCATION coupled with the more refined aggression of bands like ORIGIN, PSYCROPTIC and DECAPITATED, the end result is exactly what THE KENNEDY VEIL intended. No throwbacks, no breakdowns, no wanking, no trends. Just their own brand of straight-forward crushing modern death metal.
THE KENNEDY VEIL‘s independently released full-length “The Sentence Of Their Conqueror”, gave you an idea of what THE KENNEDY VEIL is capable of, and the “Disciples Of Dead Aeons” single allows an even better glimpse into the group’s trend killing sonic evolution.
