AS I LAY DYING
AS I LAY DYING
Frail Words Collapse
(Metal Blade Records)
41:33min

Fans of SHADOWS FALL, GOD FORBID or SOILWORK watch out, because AS I LAY DYING might be an excellent addition to your collection. On "Frail Words Collapse" the Californian five-piece blends melodic Death Metal elements with the aggression and emotional intensity of modern Hardcore and creates twelve powerful tracks that undoubtedly can enter the competition with their aforementioned concurrence. Rousing grooves, driving melodies, a variable guitar work, original song ideas (just listen to my personal highlight 'Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier') and an unstoppable screaming, growling and singing vocalist - to sum it up: all essential elements of a good modern Metal record - are existent on "Frail Words Collapse" and united by an excellent production. To make a long story short, if you like contemporary soul-driven Metal sounds, get this CD and indulge in sheer delight. For more information and sound clips surf to www.asilaydying.com or www.metalblade.com.
