Northern California death metallers THE KENNEDY VEIL will release their second album, "Trinity Of Falsehood", on January 21, 2014 via Unique Leader Records. The eleven-track offering "with an aggressive and unrelenting attitude… brings back a familiarity of big choruses and bludgeoning drums, but places its focus on structure," according to a press release.
Says the band: "We all feel that this album is exactly how we intended it to be and carries a much greater weight and impact which will lead us to be a formidable band in the death metal community and we, as THE KENNEDY VEIL, stand firm in the belief that our disciples will enthusiastically devour this new evolution of our sound."

01. Ad Noctum
02. Eulogy Of The Divine
04. Trinity Of Falsehood
05. King Of Slaves

Comments vocalist Taylor Wientjes: "'Trinity Of Falsehood' is thematically focused around the concept of religion being deceitful and contradictory, inherently corrupt and filled with excess amounts of greed. In many instances, there's an almost complete disregard to the inconsistencies in their respective doctrines. 'Enslave.Defile.Erase', in particular, represents the perspective of how religious dogma is perpetuated through faith and lies, and how it can drive men to do both asinine and downright insane things in the name of their respective deities."
In 2009, the world bore witness to a whole new brand of brutality. THE KENNEDY VEIL unleashed upon the scene their own fanatical perspective of American death metal. A quartet composed of Casey Childers (ex-FORKTUNG), Gabe Seeber (ALTERBEAST, DECREPIT BIRTH, ex-WRETCHED DAWN), Cody Walker (ex-SKRIBBLE) and Shawn Peterson, THE KENNEDY VEIL recorded its first album, "The Sentence Of Their Conqueror", with engineer Josh Williams at Metal Works Studios, and released a compilation of eight visceral tracks which quickly grabbed the attention of the metal underground. With the release of this album, the band played shows relentlessly with legendary acts such as CEPHALIC CARNAGE, EXHUMED, CATTLE DECAPITATION, MACABRE, DECREPIT BIRTH, ORIGIN, DIVINE HERESY and ABYSMAL DAWN.
In 2012, THE KENNEDY VEIL went to work on writing the follow up to "The Sentence Of Their Conqueror" and prepared an onslaught of hostile yet dynamic tracks that would come together in the form of "Trinity Of Falsehood" – a doctrine that will enslave the ears of the lawless and govern the damned into a frenzy of panic.
