With Haste On Its Breath was 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.). The album’s hour-long lifespan has media outlets like Ohio.com adding the band to their best of 2014 lists, and has major webzines like MetalSucks issuing, “its 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…” The Akron Beacon Journal hailed, “MAID MYRIAD, which calls its music ‘kaleidoscope rock’ thankfully digs deeper and further back into the ’90s recalling the intricate, herky-jerky dynamics and start-stop riffs of bands such as Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive-In and heavier contemporary proggy bands such as Tool and The Mars Volta, minus the 10-minute songs.” American Aftermath boasts, “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.”
