AS I LAY DYING- New Album “AWAKENING”

As I Lay Dying - Awakened
Estes dias olhamos para trás, o Metalcore é como outro movimento na música extrema que foi o corte de cabelo. Mas foi  por isso que o gênero explodiu, e sim pelo  Killswitch Engage na Decibel Magazine do ano em 2005. Mas isso metalcore início tinha um ponto, ou seja, que era um gênero do heavy metal que abrange todos os aspectos do que veio antes e destilando-lo em algo agradável. Havia os vocais de energia enorme de metal, os suecos, as quebras acentuadas e o  confronto da cena hardcore (que já estava se tornando bastante metalizada como o Hatebreed e Earth Crisis nunca soou como Black Flag). Não foi “metalcore”, então, era “a onda nova de Heavy Metal americana”, um conceito que fez muitos metaleiros desiludidos sentir um pouco mais esperançoso sobre o futuro.

These days we look back at the metalcore of the early Oughts as another pfff-worthy movement in extreme music that was ultimately about someone’s stupid fucking haircut. But that’s not why the genre blew up, why Killswitch Engage was Decibel Magazine’s Band Of The Year in 2005. But that early metalcore had a point, namely that it was a genre of heavy metal encompassing every aspect of what had come before and distilling it into something enjoyable. There were the huge power metal vocals, the Swedish melo-death gallops and wheedlies, the stark and confrontational breakdowns of the hardcore scene (which was already becoming pretty metalicized—Hatebreed and Earth Crisis never sounded like Black Flag). It wasn’t “metalcore” then; it was “The New Wave of American Heavy Metal,” a concept that made many disillusioned stateside metalheads feel a little more hopeful about the future.
On their sixth full-length album Awakening, As I Lay Dying channel the early years of the new millennium expertly. With full vigor and capability, the San Diego quintet race and plod their way through all of the guitar acrobatics, layered vocals, and concentrated drum accents anyone could ever ask for. Opener “Cauterize” wastes no time with niceties, diving straight into frontman Tim Lambesis’ guttural shrieks and guitarists Phil Sgrosso and Nick Hipa’s thick meaty chugging riffs, setting the temperature of the album to come. Often, the songs blur together, with one too many lyrics about overcoming inner trauma or endless drum fills that all seem to mimic each other. Some tracks do manage to set themselves apart from the rest — “Resilience” has a certain bombastic presence to it, the brisk pace of “No Lungs to Breathe” proves refreshing to the ear, and the strung-out atmosphere of “Washed Away” followed by the kick of “My Only Home” is worthy of a windmilling arm or two. Overall, the band creates eleven tracks of music that sounds just like the As I Lay Dying you’ve known since their formation
