The Kennedy Veil Premiere New Song “Godslaughter”

The Kennedy Veil have premiered a new song titled “Godslaughter” via Metal Sucks. This song is from their new album “Imperium,” which will be released on October 20

The band commented:

“The opening lyric of ‘Godslaughter‘ simply states, ‘reclaim death.’ To us, it is a statement of remaining true to what the genre was built from, while still bringing our own ideas of modern death metal into the fold. From blast beats to slow, heavy parts, ‘Godslaughter‘ has something that we think all fans of the genre can sink their teeth into.”

The Kennedy Veil Premiere New Song “Flesh Of The Sun” Feat. The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad

The Kennedy Veil have premiered a new song titled “Flesh Of The Sun” feat. The Black Dahlia Murder‘s Trevor Strnad. This song is from their new album “Imperium,” which will be released on October 20

Gabe Seeber commented:

“The world of metal has become flooded with your quintessential ‘tech’ bands,. It seems to me that many metal bands of today put so much focus on cramming as many notes as possible into songs, and playing the most difficult riffs with less focus on song structures as a whole. Without taking anything away from the obvious creativity and talent of today’s generation of death metallers, we in The Kennedy Veil are aiming to harken back to a more primal and aggressive form of the genre.”
