As I Lay Dying
As I Lay Dying have just announced that they will be releasing their next album, titled 'Awakened,' on Sept. 25. The Grammy-nominated act premiered the first song off the record, 'Cauterize' earlier today on SiriusXM's 'Liquid Metal' radio show, but don't worry, you will still be able to get your metalcore fix.
After an incredibly close match and thousands upon thousands of votes, As I Lay Dying emerged victorious in their bout against Children of Bodom. This brings As I Lay Dying to 3-0 in Death Match. One more win and their tune 'Paralyzed' will be the first ever song to be declared immortal in the Death Match Hall of Fame.
Last week's Death Match pitted three-time victors Lamb of God vs. challengers As I Lay Dying. The battle proved to be our most vicious yet, accumulating thousands upon thousands of votes from 130 countries. After both bands traded the lead various times throughout the week, As I Lay Dying emerged victorious with a razor-close win - denying Lamb of God the first spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
Destruction has taken the form of Lamb of God. With their third straight win in the Death Match, the American metal band defeated All Shall Perish to advance into their fourth and final bout. If Lamb of God claim one more victory, their single 'Ghost Walking' will be inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame.
The debut album from As I Lay Dying, 'Beneath the Encasing of Ashes,’ celebrates its 10-year anniversary next year. In an interview with the Arizona Central, guitarist Phil Sgrosso chatted about the album that started it all, his multiple roles in the band, their new compilation record and much more!
