Onto As I Lay Dying. I personally love this album, front to back. It is an amazing display of very melodic yet heavy, crunching guitars, the most astounding drum work I've heard to date, and a chugging bass that some people claim not to hear. Being a bassist, I can hear these things, and the baselines aren't too difficult, but they are still technical and dramatic. They add dimension, such as the intro to "Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier", in which the bass is the whole melody part, with some piano it sounds like, with a guitar "solo-esque" line playing in the middle ground.
As I Lay Dying is a band that can put together a fantastic song. The lyrics are heartfelt, yet powerful and damaging. They are written for a screamer, hence them being short, sweet, and simple. I really like how the vocalist can go from a howl/bark/scream to a soft very nice singing voice. However, his sung part as very distant, almost whispers in the night, and are few and far between. He sings only twice.
Ontop of the excellent vocalist, the guitars can change from a chugging crunchy riff, to an assult, to sludgy, to a melodic almost acoustic sound. They really know how to mix it up in this band. In most songs, the guitars take influence from many genres and throw it into a great end product.Read more ›
Back on track, "Frail Words Collapse" is an amazing CD from beginning to end. The only song I didn't care for was track 8. Seemed like a filler to me at first. I got used to it after awhile and now I actually enjoy listening to it. I would like to hear more breakdowns though. As with all bands, they may not appeal to you, but AILD is certainly worth checking out.
Other bands that are worth checking out: As Hope Dies, Shadows Fall, It Dies Today and Wings of Scarlet...
metal.As I Lay Dying seems to mix a little of all that they have
the speed and mosh abilitys of Dying Fetus,The sic growl/scream/
and clean singing seen in fellow record label mates Unearth and
Atreyu,They have the powerful breakdowns and chugging riffs and
some of the best double bass assault ever.Yep As I Lay Dying is
damn near the band of the year.Metal Blade records the legendary
metal record company that have Cannibal Corpse,Vader,The Crown,
Black Dahlia Murder,Unearth,Six Feet Under,and now As I Lay Dying
to create of the greatest metal collage of bands today.Enough
about Metal Blade,onto AS I LAY DYING,This band may have some
chriastian lyrics but who cares the music and structure of the
music is what matters.This band is absolutely relentless songs
like 94 Hours,Forever,Ellegy,etc are absolutely heavy and just
amazing.I've heard everyone on this sight and alot of metal mags
have raved about this band and now I know why.This band are maybe
the best band of their kind and I hope they stick to the metal
and don't turn emo or hrd-rock.With their success now I doubt they'll change much.So more great bands to check out,all the
Metal Blade records bands I listed also Bleeding Through,Atreyu,
Converge,Lamb Of God,Haste,Dying Fetus,Himsa,Eighteen Visions,
Poison The Well,and Killswitch Engage.

This album is one of the best metal/hardcore albums ever. From beginning to end it is awesome. I know a lot of "metalcore" bands sound the same, but this cd stands out. Read morePublished on July 16 2004
