WL2FU's Band Of The Week 12/26/07 - As I Lay Dying

Posted 12-26-2007 at 05:30 AM by

I know I'll prolly get a lot of negativity for choosing this band. But **** man, I haven't stopped listening to them for over a month now! I just discovered them a few months ago, and I gotta say this is quickly becoming one of my favorite all-time bands.

First off, let's not confuse their music with "emo" shit. AILD is not emo, My Chemical Romance is emo. AILD is just a really talented band with a hardcore sound. I'm not big on throat singing, and perhaps it's just because I've been listening to them every day for over a month now, but I think AILD combines the throat singing with the heavy thrash metal pretty good. Even though you can't understand what the **** he is saying 90% of the time. That's not why I listen to bands like this though.

The reason I like AILD so much is their music. They have so many awesome songs. Their drummer is ****in insane! He's just brutal on those things in every single song. The riffs are great and they transition well and they all play together so perfectly. They are a very talented set of musicians.

The wierd thing about them I just found out recently was they are considered Christian Rock. That's hard to believe but it's pretty cool at the same time. At least their not singing about death and shit.

Any AILD fans in here? Take a listen to their playlist and lemme know what you think about them, good or bad. Try to ignore the throat singing if you don't like it. The music is what's important. After listening to these guys Slipknot sounds like complete shit. I really don't even like Slipknot anymore after listening to bands like AILD and Killswitch Engage, and I'm embarrassed to say I used to love Slipknot Some people might say I should be embarrassed for being an AILD fan, but ****em, these guys are incredibly talented, no matter what anyone else says.

    I think I seen these guys live on the Taste Of Chaos tour, if they played on that tour then that was them, I cant remember I was drinking at that concert. I caught one of their picks too, and I must say, aside from the Deftones, they were the best band there. They looked the koolest and sounded the koolest. If I knew were my ticketsx stubs were at this moment, I'd check see if it was them for sure, I'm pretty sure though, but I've been drinking tonight. If it wasnt them, then disregard what I said.

    Yea they played at Taste Of Chaos. I heard that they are one of the best bands to go watch live. I've been told that their songs rule just as hard live as they do blasting through my car stereo. They're coming to Cincinnatti in late January and tickets are cheap and it's in a small bar where I saw Rob Zombie. It would be badass to go but I have no friends who like them enough.

    I never understand when ppl. say they don't listen to the lyrics, to me that is 60% of the album...you are really missing out if you don't listen to the lyrics, why have a singer if you're not going to listen to the lyrics? But I digress. As I Lay Dying is a crappy band if you want a good band for Christian Metal check out Demon Hunter they are better at playing and lyrics As for a band that has great musicianship-is that a word? Check out THA-The Human Abstract what they do on guitar alone blows AILD out of the water.

    Ah man, living in SD, I'm obviously around this kind of music a lot and I'm not a huge fan. However, I do like As I Lay Dying(somewhat). 94 Hours and Forever would be my favorite 2 songs
