Do you think art forums have threads like, "Da Vinci Vs Michelangelo who is better?"

It's not a competition, it's music. You either like it or you don't.

Born of Osiris is a lot more straight forward... Veil of Maya has significantly more nuance and you can hear some really diverse influences in between the prerequisite chunky-chunky->noodle-noodle->chunky-chunk format.

Veil of Maya FTW.

Well based on Veil of Maya's Common Man's Collapse vs Born of Osiris' The New Reign, I'd say the guitars sound way more hi-fi on The Common Man's Collapse and the riffing is much more intricate and the material in general sounds way more technical. With that said, I think the compositions on The New Reign are more cohesive songs and more memorable to me then on the Common Man's Collapse. It feels like the Common Man's Collapse was rushed and they threw a lot of filler on the album. Also I really hate the vocals on Veil of Maya, not that I like Born Of Osiris' vocalist much either but to me at least Born of Osiris's vocalist is more passable (I kind of hate most metal screamo vocals anyway). Both bands kick a lot of ass, but I have to give the nod to Born of Osiris, and I can't wait to hear new material from both of them!

I've seen Born of Osiris live and they are ....ing tight, can't speak for Veil of Maya. I don't think I prefer either per se, I know they are similar, but when I asked Born of Osiris about Veil of Maya they said they had the utmost respect for them and what they were doing, and didn't want anyone to think of them in the same way because they are two seperate bands.

What happened to Jeff? Funny how he dropped off the radar now that the entire Western world disagrees with his right wing bullshit.

Yea I do agree this is a difficult decision, over all I would have to say Veil Of Maya simply for the reason that they write longer songs. I know that sounds stupid but both band are awesome and I love each of their debut cds, but one thing I am not a fan of is a metal cd under a half hour long. I know Born Of Osiris' longest song on their cd is like 3:30, I can't say how long Veil of Maya's cd is but I know it is a good amount longer than Born Of Osiris. Either way I am looking foward to new material from both bands!

I love both, but Veil Of Maya has better breakdowns and rhythms.

I do have a soft spot for Born Of Osiris' synths, though.

I vote for veil. They do have a lot of breakdowns, but I feel like they are more technical, and their songs flow much better. BOO has to many songs where the structure is "riff...pause...riff...pause...riff...pause...riff ...pause...etc."

veil. hands down. Seen them both live a few times (They are both local) and Ide have to say veil takes it.

Born of Osiris was alot better before they got signed to sumerian and changed their name from Rosecrance to Born of osiris. They used to have a few off little bits on their cds that they took off for the studio versions wich was a bummer. Ronnie is also not that great of a live vocalist wich is a bummer.

Veil has always been a favorite! Their guitarist is unreal clean live. He just hits every note spot on and since its only him playing he makes great use of loops to keep everyhting "big" They are truely a joy to watch live. haha

Veil Veil Veil!


And after the burial is boring IMO

is it bad that I think this is the only right answer posted in this thread? don't answer that.

after about 2 songs, BOO and VOM sound pretty much the same.

i've seen 'em both live, within the last month and a half.

good bands, nice guys, but pretty samey. not that i mind, i just cant listen to one then the other right after.

I find After The Burial to be hit and miss.

their really heavy tech groove bits = win.
their really gay harmonised riffs = fail.

Sorry if I'm bumping this, but I'm new and these are two of my favorite bands, so...

Veil is better. Their stuff flows better riff to riff, their guitars are much punchier and present, the vocalist is better and has more variety, and the breakdowns are better. The only thing BoO has that veil doesn't is the keyboard, but that's not always too great.

Sometimes Born go too far with their "offness". In my opinion, the best breakdowns find a good balance between denying the listeners what they anticipate, and giving the listenes what they anticipate. Too much of either one and it's either unsatisfying, or boring and predictable, respectively.

Both sounded good life. When veil got to the climax, so to speak, of Pillars, it was just...*shudder*...

Nonetheless, I think both bands are very good (not too sure about BoO's new song, check it out if you haven't) and are certainly different enough that I can enjoy both in close succession.
