CRITIC REVIEWS

Metal Injection

Errorzone is a rare kind of debut. It’s hardcore down to its marrow, but it’s got so much more to offer at every bone snapping turn.

Exclaim!

Errorzone is an unequivocal body of scorn with a ferocious sound, opaque imagery and despondent lyricism that Vein will be recalled for amongst their contemporaries in years to come.

PopMatters

You're too overwhelmed by the energy and passion of the delivery to care where exactly they have appropriated riffs and sounds from. Vein's feverish spirit on record is, without question, their unique selling point.

Pitchfork
Yesterday’s Active Rock playlist gets ransacked and reconfigured on the debut full-length from a Boston hardcore quintet whose influences range from Converge to Korn.

The Needle Drop
Vein's debut album offers a diverting blend of metalcore and alternative metal styles as well as its share of growing pains.

My mom told me this was angry Satan music. At least she's not sleeping on Metalcore.

Noisy and brutal album. Strong influences from late 90s Hardcore punk such as maybe disembodied or converge with a strong mathcore twist on it. Also has a scent of experimental/alternative metal on it. Great album excited to see what they put out next

This is definitely a contender for the best metalcore album I've heard this decade, and a standout for heavy music this year overall. It's got the relentless brutality of the best original metalcore acts with a dynamic, almost cyberpunk edge. It doesn't overstay its welcome, either. Code Orange had better be brewing up a potent followup to Forever, because it looks like Vein has just snatched their crown as the most interesting new metalcore band working.
