The Kennedy Veil is a death metal outfit from Sacramento, California who have released their latest full-length, Trinity of Falsehood, and it does not disappoint. With the addition of vocalist Taylor Wientjes, their sound is rejuvenated and has an extreme sound that must be heard to appreciate. Gabe Seeber does a phenomenal job with blast beats that you will feel in your chest and double peddling that really ramps up the BPM. The guitars, played by KC Childers, are especially crunchy and really soar in the title track of the album. Rounding out the lineup is bassist Shawn Peterson, who has his moments where he stands out but the mixing in the album almost makes him get lost in the flurry of guitar tracks.
Not all the time, but I’d like to hear Shawn more and really show his bass chops more. You can hear the influences from such heavy hitters such as Suffocation, Morbid Angel and Decapitation which The Kennedy Veil uses to bring brutally heavy tones and lyrics filled with a light being shed on the inconsistencies and greedy nature of religion. Overall, lyrically, thematically and musically, The Kennedy Veil have released an amazing follow up album and have really stepped up their game since The Sentence of Their Conqueror back in 2011. Trinity of Falsehood is a must have album for 2014 to add to the death metal collection. Go out and get yourself a slice of Sacramento brutality…..Robb Napalm/Capital Chaos TV
