Maid Myriad's debut full-length, With Haste On Its Breath, is an hour-long opus that is as beautiful as it is infectious, radiating with the band’s most exceptionally-crafted songwriting through their most expansive and explosive material to date.
Recorded in Akron, Ohio and Keyport, New Jersey, produced and engineered by guitarist Jeff Klemm at Free Truman Productions, and mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam, etc.), With Haste On Its Breath brings out a solid hour of dazzling musicianship and powerful, dynamic vocals from MAID MYRIAD. MetalSucks, issued, “…it’s massive, melodic, introspective, and tortured, like a wonderful dream that quickly metamorphasizes into the kind of nightmare that continues to rattle and haunt you even after you awaken, stuck to your psyche like gum to the bottom of a shoe…”. American Aftermath offers, “The band combines an array of influences, including progressive rock and 90’s post-hardcore/emo, into a dynamic and emotional display of alternative rock mastery… Jeff Klemm’s near angelic vocals are sure to be stuck in your head all day. In fact, we guarantee that.” The Cleveland Scene made MAID MYRIAD their Band Of The Week, stating, “…the songs stay true to ‘kaleidoscope rock,’ the term the band has used to describe its neo-progressive rock. Heavily textured songs such as ‘Camera Eye’ and ‘Dance by the Moonlight’ have elements of Mars Volta. But the group slows things down for the simmering ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘Waiting for December,’ showing it can capably change gears.”

Boasting a beautiful but potent style of post-progressive, alternative pop they like to refer to as kaleidoscope rock, MAID
MYRIAD blends dynamically versatile songs, angst-fueled progressive riffs, delicate pin drop moments, and intense start/stop dynamics....more
