Tag Archives: As I Lay Dying
More than a dozen new bands have been added to the Download 2012 line up, and if you had any doubts about going or not, one (or more) of these will probably help you make your mind up:
- Rise Against
- Steel Panther
- Black Label Society
- Kyuss Lives!
- Five Finger Death Punch
- As I Lay Dying
- Billy Talent
- Fear Factory
- and more!
Billy Talent?!? OMG I’M SO THERE!!!1!1 No, but seriously, that’s some nice lineup, joining the already awesome lineup of Metallica, Black Sabbath, and most importantly – The Prodigy, plus a shitload of more good to great bands.
Turns out that As I Lay Dying released their cheap cash-in EP this past week (or last week – what am I? Your teacher?), which consisted of covers no one wanted to hear, remixes no one wanted to hear, as well as a couple of new tracks, again, no one wanted to hear. I didn’t really realize, as, well, I’m too busy getting laid and working a job.
The funny thing? It managed to sell over 9,500 copies in its first week, which is a bit shit, but not that many less than Lulu.
You can listen to ‘Paralyzed’, taken from the new EP, above. I tried listening to it myself, but for some unknown reason it fucked up after 10 seconds, which I took as a sign I shouldn’t listen to it. Thanks God. Now if you can just sort it out for Katy Perry to be in my bed when I wake up, like I asked for in my prayer weeks ago, then all would be cool. Amen.

Metalcore act As I Lay Dying recently recorded and released a classic Judas Priest song. The song they covered was ‘Electric Eye’ and it will be appearing on As I Lay Dying‘s upcoming album, Decas, which looks to be full of remixes and cover songs.
If you’re interesting for the stream and for other information regarding the upcoming As I Lay Dying release, then check out Blabbermouth.
As for my opinion on the actual song, well… let’s just say I’d rather have a picture of Susan Boyle fully nude, tattooed on the inside of my eyelids for a day, than listen to As I lay Dying cover ‘Electric Eye one more time or anything else from their upcoming release. My god, that was awful.
And when I say “style”, I mean no style what so ever.
The hugely successful As I Lay Dying will soon be reaching their tenth anniversary on the scene, and to celebrate their accomplishments and give something back to the fans who have supported them, As I Lay Dying will be releasing a special album, titled Decas (I think that’s probably Latin for ten, but have no idea since I can’t read).
The album will contain three brand new tracks (cool enough), four cover songs (meh), and five remixes (yuck!). Decas will be out November 8 in North America, and will include covers of Judas Priest and Slayer. The full tracklisting can be found after the jump, along with a picture of a cat for no particular reason.*
Hi. So what I did was, I searched for ‘metal’ on YouTube and then sorted the results by view count. I got a lot of random results that had nothing to do with metal/rock music at all, which I’ve removed, and then I was left with the 10 most popular metal videos.
Well, technically it’s the top 10 most popular search results for the keyword ‘metal,’ but you get the point.
Is this an educated study of heavy metal popularity and a thorough analysis of viral videos within the very same genre? LULZ, get real, dumbass — this is Dose Of Metal. I just clicked a few buttons on that crappy video site and then made an article out of it.
Make the jump and witness the mediocrity.
Last week I reviewed a free sampler from Basick Records, and this week legendary Metal label Metal Blade are offering their own free sampler to UK residents (don’t worry rest of the world, you can probably get it too). Unlike the Basick Records sampler, I’m not reviewing it just yet, because A – I’m lazy, and B – I’ve only just found out about it.
You can download the FREE sampler by heading over to Amazon.
And if the price of nothing hasn’t quite convinced you, just check out the tracklist after the jump. It features artists such as As I Lay Dying, Amon Amarth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Primordial and many more.
Some of you regular readers may remember my Dose for Sunday article I posted a few weeks back, and today I’m doing something similar, but a little different. Imagine, if you will, it’s Sunday (doesn’t take much imagination, it IS Sunday), and your dear old Grandma is coming ’round for Sunday Roast. The only problem is, she’s a deeply religious woman that thinks all Metal music is the work of the devil and she wants to listen to some crappy Christian hymns that no one below the age of 50 can tolerate. It’s time for a compromise. Slap on some Christian Metal and she will love it*
Now don’t worry, I don’t have any agenda and I’m not trying to sell you any religious views. You also won’t find any P.O.D. crap in this article. This is just all about me recommending you some decent new music to check out, all whilst slapping on some lame gimmick to make it sound more interesting than it really is. So get your Sunday dosage after the jump.
*Disclaimer – may not actually be true. But don’t worry, if it’s not, just tell her it’s your f’ing house.
Another week and I’m back from another gig. This time, it was a bit of a scene fest (unfortunately), with four Metalcore (ish) bands on the bill, at Wulfrun Hall. As I Lay Dying were headlining, with support coming from Sylosis, Heaven Shall Burn, and Suicide Silence. I’m knackered, but you know I love you guys, so I’m going to give you a review of the gig.
Read more after the jump.
If you’re sick of all the horrid trance, drum n’ bass and pop shite music that is constantly being played on the television, then you might be interested in watching this live footage of As I Lay Dying performing for Fuse TV. It’s just a shame the sound isn’t fantastic and the singing is a little off key…
Regardless, check it out after the jump.
Truth is Scary recently conducted an interview with Christian Metalcore band, As I Lay Dying‘s bassist, Josh Gilbert. Josh discusses how the documentary “Zeitgeist” challenged his band’s Christian faith, questions if 9/11 was an “inside job,” and talks FEMA death camps. You can watch the interview after the jump.
Apparently after watching the film, the band questioned their own Christian beliefs, but after researching for themselves, found that Zeitgest was made up of “shoddy research”. I tried watching Zeitgeist once, but gave up the moment I realised it wasn’t German porn. The only thing it made me question, was my porn searching skillz.
