Home » VEIN + HIGHER POWER
Age restriction 14+
Vein, then, are very, very normal. Hailing from the Merrimack Valley area outside of Boston, and with members who are all under the age of 25, the quintet spins out heavy music that's strange and spastic, technical and abstract, part New England hardcore heroes Converge, part multinational jazz-fusion group Mahavishnu Orchestra.
But for all their cacophony and chaos, Vein also have a healthy respect for the craft of songwriting and an even healthier love of groove; the band's two demos — 2013's self-titled release and 2015's Terrors Realm — and a 2017 split with .Gif From God showcase subtle hooks and heavy mosh parts that slyly nod to groups like Deftones and Korn, who were gateway metal bands for Vein's young vocalist-to-be.
