‘Curse Of Existence’ Is A Musically, Lyrically Powerful New Offering From Miss May I

Courtesy: SharpTone Records

Early this month, veteran metalcore band Miss May I unveiled its latest album through SharpTone Records.  The band’s seventh album, Curse of Existence is an interesting new presentation from the band that is likely to find the majority of its appeal among the band’s most devoted audiences.  That is proven in part through its musical content, which will be discussed shortly.  The lyrical themes that accompany the album’s musical content will also appeal to that targeted audience.  It will be discussed a little later.  The record’s production puts the final touch to its presentation and will also be examined later.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of the album’s presentation.  Collectively, they make Curse of Existence a record that metalcore fans and Miss May I’s established audiences will agree is worth hearing at least once.

Curse of Existence, the latest album from Miss May I, is a presentation that will appeal largely to the most devoted metalcore masses and of the band’s established audiences.   That targeted appeal comes in part through the album’s featured musical content.  The content in question is the band’s familiar blend of metalcore and death metal influences is just as present here as in the band’s existing albums.  From one song to the next, audiences can clearly once again make comparisons to works from the likes of As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, and to a slightly lesser degree, the band’s label mates, Of Mice & Men.  The heavy, crunching down-tuned guitars that rip through each song with the sharpness of a chainsaw pair with the equally tight drums and low-end from the bass to make each song powerful in its own right.  Given, the overall musical content does not necessarily break any new ground for the band, but it is still such that it will appeal to said audiences what with its wall of sound effect from one song to the next.  The addition of front man Levi Benton’s powerhouse screams makes that even clearer.  To that end, the record’s musical arrangements are, again, a safe choice for the band this time out but still play well into the album’s overall presentation.

The musical arrangements featured throughout the course of Curse of Existence are collectively, just one part of what makes Curse of Existence worth hearing at least once.  The record’s overall lyrical body does its own share to make the album engaging.  That is because said content largely presents themes of facing and overcoming adversity in life.  That includes facing it internally and externally. 

As Benton stated in an interview about the album, “Curse of Existence is exactly what it reads, the curse we have in our existence. This doesn’t mean anything strictly negative, but it covers all existence that is the good and the bad, the highs and the lows; the sorrow and the joy. Everything that comes with life comes with a lesson and a price that is what we have put into this album.”

Those highs and lows are present throughout the album’s lyrical content.  The album’s single, ‘Unconquered’ is a prime example of this.  Benton sings/screams in this song of that personal/inner strength.  He states right from the song’s introductory lines, “If it’s us versus the world/Then I will remain/The last man standing/SO bring on the pain” before continuing in the song’s lead verse and chorus, “I walk alone through a crowd of eyes/I see a vision of red/terrified/It goes from bad to worse/If every blessing is a curse/Then how will I survive/The walls are closing in/What’s on the other side/It’s been so long/Since I’ve felt alive/Maybe I’m the only one who can save me/From the monster I’ve become lately/All these ghosts still chase me/And there’s nowhere left to run.”  This is that message of realization of one’s self, that realization that a person is at a certain breaking point and it is up to that person to change himself/herself.  Again, it centers on that inner strength to overcome that personal adversity.  The message continues in the chorus tied to the second verse, which states, “So heavy/The world around me/Can’t let it crush me…The only way out is through/And the sun that stops the flood is still inside you.”  He is saying that said inner strength is there and that people must remember they have that power to stop the bad.  It is a message that is certain to resonate with so many audiences.

‘A Smile That Does Not Exist,’ the album’s opener, is another song that is certain to resonate with audiences, what with what comes across as a message of overcoming one’s own mental health struggles.  This is inferred as Benton screams in the song’s lead verse and chorus, “The world has kept the chosen ones free/Safe from the storms that rain down on me/The coming winds of catastrophe/Face the beast or find no peace/Descend into madness/Shattering glass into fragments/Locked eyes watch me writhe across the floor/Pick up the pieces/Come back for more/In the mirror/A blank stare/No one’s there/No one cares/I pretend that we share/A smile that does not exist/My obsession with the darkness in my reflections/I always see the worst in me/Breathe in, Breathe out/Drown in self-doubt/It’s always in your head/But it’s only in your head.”  That final statement that “It’s only in your head” is so important.  It is a reminder that all of those negative thoughts that so many of us fight daily are just that.  They are in our head.  That self-doubt is there, but it can be overcome.  This reminder is so simple, but so important. Benton adds a statement in the song’s second verse of memories fading away, “devouring brighter days.”  Again, this is that emotional darkness that countless millions the world over feel every day.   The reminder that follows once again, that it is all in one’s head is sure to motivate so many listeners.  Once again, it shows the importance of the lyrical content featured in this album. 

‘Bleed Together’ is yet another example of that importance.  In the case of this song, it comes across as a commentary about someone coming to terms with a troubled childhood.  This is inferred most clearly in the song’s second verse, which states, “I only sang a silent lullaby/You let a part of me die/A broken God through a child’s eyes/I’ve walked these hells before/But now I’m re-writing history/Please let the apple fall far from the tree.”  That mention of the apple falling far from the tree is typically used to talk about connections between children and their parents, so to that end, this really does point toward some emotional conflict and disconnect between a child and parent.  Later in the song, he adds, “I will not stand in the shadow of your demons/No/Bury the past in the dirt/I refuse to relive the hurt/There’s only one thing in this short life/I won’t give to you, my dear/The key to all the pain I’ve locked inside.”  Again, this comes across as a discussion from someone facing a past that involved a troubled childhood relationship with a parent.  If in fact this is the case, then it is certain to resonate with audiences in its own right, too.  That is because there are so many people who had those stormy relationships with their parents.  It is another topic that is all too familiar in the rock realm, but one that is still just as relevant today as it has ever been.  To that end, it is yet another clear example of the importance of this album’s lyrical content.  When it and the other themes addressed here are considered alongside the rest of the album’s lyrical themes and with the album’s musical content, the whole creates a solid foundation for the album.

As much as the content featured in Curse of Existence does to make the album worth hearing, there is still one more item to address here.  That item is the album’s production.  The production is important because of its role in the album’s general effect.  Each song featured in this record is so intense, musically.  Thanks to the attention paid to each musician’s part in each song results in each work having so much impact.  No one part overpowers its counterparts at any point in the record.  The result is that the album’s general effect is positive in its own right, too.  Keeping that in mind, the production that went into this record does just as much to make the album worth hearing as the album’s content.  The whole makes Curse of Existence worth hearing at least once.

Curse of Existence, the latest album from veteran metalcore outfit Miss May I, is another work that the most devoted of the band’s audiences and the most devoted metalcore fans will find engaging and entertaining.  This is proven in part through the record’s musical content, which is fully familiar to those audiences.  The lyrical content that accompanies the record’s musical arrangements is important, too.  That is because of its accessibility.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation, creating a positive general effect that does its own share to keep audiences engaged.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the album’s presentation.  All things considered they make Curse of Existence anything but a cursed record.

Curse of Existence is available now through SharpTone Records.  More information on the album is available along with all of Miss May I’s latest news at:

A Fitting Revenge’s New Album Will Find Appeal Among A Wide Range Of Metal Audiences

Courtesy: TAG Publicity

Independent metal outfit A Fitting Revenge released its new album, Omnipresence July 1.  The 12-song record will appeal to a wide range of metal audiences.  That is due in part to the record’s featured musical arrangements, which will be discussed shortly.  The lyrical themes that accompany the musical arrangements play just as much into the record’s interest as that musical content.  They will be discussed a little later.  The record’s production rounds out its most important elements and will also be examined later.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of the record.  All things considered they make the album a work that metal fans will find worth hearing at least once.

Omnipresence, the new album from independent metal band A Fitting Revenge, is a unique addition to this year’s field of new hard rock and metal albums.  It is a presentation that a wide range of metal fans will find worth hearing at least once.  That is due in part through its featured musical arrangements.  The arrangements are of note because of the clearly diverse range of influences exhibited throughout its body.  The death metal style screaming vocals pair with the equally intense guitar riffs from one song to the next to immediately make for comparisons to works from the likes of Arch Enemy and Between The Buried and Me all in one.  The use of the ethereal keyboard line in the album’s opener, ‘The Performance’ makes that comparison even clearer.  At other points, that pairing is joined by the bass and drums to make for just as much comparison to works from the likes of As I Lay Dying and just as much to works from Whitechapel.  Simply put, there are clearly a lot of metal and extreme metal leanings throughout the album’s musical content, and that in itself is certain to appeal to a wide range of audiences, again.  From one song to the next, those influences blend together seamlessly to make for 12 arrangements that are certain to keep audiences engaged and entertained without fail.

The record’s overall musical content is just one of its notable items.  The lyrical themes that accompany the record’s musical arrangements makes for its own share of interest.  The theme featured in the album’s opener comes across as a sort of existential rumination that debates the concept of predetermination against secular views.  This is inferred right from the song’s outset, which states, “This self-deception/Stage is set by the divine/The characters flawed/So-called intelligent design/So will you go on/Seek the stage on which to shine/Star in the role never assigned/Unfurling now/Incoherent psycho scroll/Volume of old/Every story ever told/So will you go on/Pleading with the shifting light/Mythic realities collide/Aimless/Pointless.”  The song continues in similar fashion from here.  In the end, it closes with the statement, “Revealed/Your fate/The script is blank/Your conflict was for naught/This fiction ends the same/Your purpose dies with you/When you exit the stage.”  Yes, it certainly seems nihilistic, but it is certain to engage audiences and generate plenty of discussion.

On another note, ‘The Freeze’ is another example of the importance of the record’s lyrical content.  This song is less clear in its theme, which is not necessarily a bad thing.  The song states here, “Lightning bisecting the pillars of rain/A bullet that’s moving and standing just the same/Statuesque image of who we are/This visage frozen in time/Permanency is a lie/And the death of momentum begins our fall/From Mount Olympus/Ashes to ashes/A late reprieve/The eulogy slows to a crawl/Dust hangs in stasis/A moment in rhyme/Like a painting that captures the fall/Hope of mine/Fossilized in amber/Death of time/Stillness accelerator/This particle now a blur/Slowing to less than a stop/The ax blade hangs overhead/And now the present is truly the past.”  The band really leaves this one up to interpretation, though the mention of hope being fossilized in amber reveals what sounds like another nihilistic piece.  Though, odds are there is likely something more inspiring here.  That the song is sure to generate so much discussion from its fully poetic approach makes it so interesting and another example of the importance of the album’s lyrical content.

‘The Inquisition’ is another example of what makes the album’s lyrical themes important to its presentation.  In the case of this song, it comes across (at least to this critic) as being a social commentary about the state of the world.  The inference is made as the song states, “Grains of sand from an age yet to be/Signal infinity/Exploited paths/Manipulated roads/Talking chimp found a gun that it knows how to load/The only constant is change/And change is the meaning of pain/Tunnel vision/Black magic reversed/Grandfather in flames/There was never a curse/Selfish endeavors won’t last forever/Take what we may/On the last golden day/We escape the setting sun/Now watch your cities overrun.”  It continues in its second verse, “Sow the seeds in native skulls/Raise up new walls over the graves/That we’ve tended before/The victims born/After we die by the same hands/The only constant is change/And change is the meaning of pain.”  The mention later in the song that “Every choice will lead/Down the same path that we beat” furthers the seeming message in this song of how we are destroying ourselves through our actions even as things change.  Again, this is just this critic’s interpretation and hopefully is somewhere in the proverbial ballpark of what the theme is in the end.  Regardless, the seeming message and the deep fashion in which it is presented here once again shows how much the album’s lyrical content has to offer audiences.  When the overall lyrical content is considered along with the importance of the album’s musical arrangements, that overall content makes clear how much this record has to offer audiences.

As much as the overall content featured in this record has to offer audiences, it is just a part of what makes the record worth hearing.  The record’s production is just as much of note.  The production is important to address because of the successful way in which it brings out each element within each arrangement.  The powerhouse shredding of the guitars expertly compliments the equally cutting vocals from one song to the next.  The drums cut through just as tightly, again, thanks to the work of those behind the glass, adding even more explosive power to the whole of each arrangement.  Even the low-end from the bass makes for its own subtle touch in each composition.  Overall, the production that went into each of the album’s songs makes each song equally powerful.  To that end, the production that went into this album creates a strong general effect that is just as appealing as the record’s content.  All things considered, the production and content make Omnipresence a work that most metal fans will find worth hearing.

Omnipresence, the new album from independent metal collective A Fitting Revenge, is a unique addition to this year’s field of new hard rock and metal, and even independent albums.  That is due in part to its musical arrangements, which as noted here, lean heavily on a wide range of influences.  Those influences range from the likes of Arch Enemy and Whitechapel to As I Lay Dying and Between The Buried and Me.  That is a wide range of influences that are expertly balanced throughout each arrangement.  At the same time, the arrangements still maintain their own identity separate from the works of those bands and from one another even within the album.  The lyrical themes, which range from the seemingly existential to the social and beyond, add their own touch to the record’s presentation.  Together with the record’s musical arrangements, the whole makes the record’s overall content reason enough for audiences to give the record a chance.  The production that went into the album’s presentation rounds out the album’s most important elements.  It ensures the record’s general effect is just as engaging as the content.  Each item examined is important in its own way to the whole of the album’s presentation.  All things considered, they make Omnipresence an independent metal record that many hard rock and metal fans will find worth hearing at least once.

Omnipresence is available now. More information on A Fitting Revenge’s new album is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:

As Within, So Without’s New Album Is A Positive Addition To 2022’s Field Of New Hard Rock, Metal Albums

Courtesy: CowlgirlZen Entertainment

Independent metalcore band As Within, So Without released its new album, Salvation Wednesday.  The 11-song record is a presentation that will appeal equally to the band’s established audience base and to casual metalcore fans.  That is due in large part to its featured musical arrangements, which will be discussed shortly.  The roughly 26-minute record’s lyrical content works with its musical arrangements to make for even more interest and will be examined a little later.  The album’s production rounds out its most important elements and will also be examined later.  Each item noted here is important in its own way to the whole of Salvation’s presentation.  All things considered, they make Salvation a work that the noted audiences will find worth hearing at least once.

As Within, So Without’s new album, Salvation, is a record that the band’s established audiences and casual metalcore fans alike will find interesting.  That is due in large part to the record’s musical arrangements.  From beginning to end, the record presents a nonstop display of metalcore.  The heavy, crunching guitars, the dual approach of the screams and clean vocals, and the equally heavy, rich bass and drums makes each song so engaging and entertaining for the noted audiences.  The arrangements easily lend themselves to comparison to works from the likes of Ice Nine Kills, As I Lay Dying, and Killswitch Engage, just to name a few similar acts.  A casual listen through the record makes each arrangement sound the same.  However, audiences who actively listen to each work will catch the subtle changes that make each song different from one another.  Case in point is the album’s opener, ‘Ch. III: The Undefined.’  This song’s full one assault is a face melting work that even though it barely tops the two minute mark, absolutely pounds listeners’ ears.  That approach and sound makes it comparable to works from the likes of Unearth and Whitechapel.  By comparison, a song, such as ‘Frostbite,’ with its machine gun precise guitar riffs and equally tight drumming and screams make it so similar to works from Killswitch Engage.  The intensity exuded through the song is so much different from that of ‘Ch. III: The Undefined’ and the rest of the album’s entries.  ‘Salvation,’ which closes out the album, changes things up even more with its deep screams and heavy instrumentation.  The minor chords used in the guitar line and the punch from the drums and bass pair with the guitar and vocals to give that song a sound that is more comparable to KsE and to As I Lay Dying.  That is especially the case considering the contrast of the heavier verses and the more melodic choruses.  It is just one more way in which the album’s musical arrangements prove so important to the album’s presentation.  Again, the changes from one song to the next are subtle, but those who actively immerse themselves in the album will catch those subtleties and in turn agree that the record’s musical arrangements are so critical to the album.

It goes without saying that the musical content featured in Salvation is important to the album’s presentation.  Yes, the record’s musical content is largely metalcore in its approach, but the band presents influences from so many of its more well-known counterparts in the metalcore community from beginning to end, changing things from one song to the next and ensuring the songs maintain their own identity in the process.  They are just one part of what makes the record worth hearing, too.  The record’s lyrical content is just as important to its presentation as its musical arrangements.  The lyrical content in question follows an overarching theme so to speak.  According to comments from the band, the album is a concept record that follows a man who is on a personal and spiritual journey of healing.  Not having lyrics to reference, the content that can be deciphered leads listeners to hear that story, beginning with the story’s subject at a point of total anger over events of the past.  From broken relationships with a certain person or people early on to anger over an absent parent in ‘Like The Wind’ to the subject’s seeming eventual realization that there was no point in holding in so much anger, the story will connect with a wide range of audiences.  What’s more, the very fact that a metal act opted to take on a concept record to begin with is of its own note.  Generally, concept records are saved for the prog-metal community (E.g. bands, such as Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Between The Buried and Me).  So to have a pure metal band, such as this taking on a concept record is in itself unique in terms of lyrical content.  To that end, that and the story itself together make the album’s overall lyrical content even more reason for audiences to give this album a chance.  It is just one more item that audiences will appreciate about the album, too.  The record’s production rounds out its most important elements.

The production that went into Salvation is important to address because of its role in the album’s general effect.  Going back to the note of the intensity of each of the album’s arrangements, they are exactly that.  There is a lot going on in each arrangement between the instrumentations and the vocals.  Even in the case of the vocals themselves, the production that went into balancing the screams and clean vocals played its own role.  The end result of all of that work from one song to the next is that each arrangement is professionally balanced.  No one band member overpowers his band mates at any point.  The slightest nuances, such as keyboard lines even play their own important part and add their own layer of engagement and entertainment to the songs.  That is again, thanks to the time and effort put in to balancing those lines with everything else in each song.  All things considered, the production that went into Salvation gives the album a fully positive general effect.  Keeping that in mind along with the role of the album’s musical arrangements in general and with the role of the album’s lyrical content, and the whole makes the album overall a work that AWSW’s established audiences will find just as appealing as more casual metalcore fans.

Salvation is a positive new offering from As Within So Without.  That is due in large part to its featured musical arrangements.  The arrangements are important to the album’s presentation because they take audiences into so many sub realms (of sorts) of the metalcore community.  The changes from song to song are subtle, and listeners who actively take in the album will catch those subtle changes.  The lyrical themes that accompany the album’s musical arrangements are just as important to its presentation as the album’s musical content.  That is because of their accessibility and the very fact that they play into a bigger concept for the album.  That a metal band decided to take on a concept for a record is itself rare, making for even more reason for audiences to hear the album.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation.  It gives the album a strong general effect through the balance that it insures in the album’s instrumentation and vocals.  Each item examined is important in its own way to the whole of the album.  All things considered, they make Salvation a positive addition to this year’s field of new hard rock and metal albums and independent albums.

As Within, So Without Debuts New Album’s Title Track, Video; New Album Available Now

Courtesy: CowgirlZen Entertainment

Independent hard rock band As Within, So Without debuted its latest single and companion video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Salvation’ and its video Wednesday. The single is available to stream and download through Spotify and Apple Music. It is the title track to the band’s new album, which released Wednesday, too.

The premiere of ‘Salvation’ and its video comes more than a month after the band premiered the album’s then latest single,  ‘Like The Wind‘ and its companion video. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘My Revelation‘ and its companion video in October.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Salvation’ is a heavy, crunching work. The richness and heaviness in the combination of the instrumentation and vocals immediately likens the arrangement to works from the likes of Unearth, As I Lay Dying, and Killswitch Engage.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the premiere of the new single and video. The lyrics provided with the video hint at a theme of overcoming life’s adversity and obstacles.

The video that accompanies ‘Salvation’ features the band performing its new single in a semi-forested setting. Meanwhile, an anonymous figure stands in the ocean waves, letting them crash around his feet. The band’s song plays over the visualization as all of this happens.

As Within, So Without Takes On The Emotional Impact Of Broken Homes In New Single, Video

Courtesy: CowgirlZen Entertainment

Independent hard rock band As Within, So Without is offering audiences another preview of its new record.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Like The Wind‘ and its companion video Wednesday. song and its video are the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Salvation, which is scheduled for release Jan. 12. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘My Revelation‘ and its companion video last month.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Like The Wind’ is stylistically similar to that of ‘My Revelation’ in that both songs boast a distinct metalcore style arrangement. At the same time though, ‘Like The Wind’ presents more similarity to works from the likes of Ice Nine Kills and As I Lay Dying while ‘My Revelation’ bears more influence from the likes of Killswitch Engage.

The lyrical theme featured in ‘Like The Wind’ focuses on the emotional and mental impact of a child from a broken home.

The band addressed that theme and the song’s video treatment in a prepared statement.

“Our new single ‘Like The Wind’ explores the feelings and trauma of one of your parents or parent figures leaving you at a young age,” the statement reads. “The lyrical content is very personal to some of the members of our band and the message of this song is something we’re very proud of.

The statement adds, “As for the music video we felt that the set/location needed to get across the point of a broken home and we feel like we crushed all of our goals with this song and music video.”

Expanding on the comments of the video, the video features the band performing its single in the setting of a home with a variety of video and editing effects. Along with that footage, the video also features a couple fighting and one of the couple leaving, the child sitting alone as the incident happens.

As I Lay Dying Debuts ‘Roots Below’ Video; Announces ‘Shaped By Fire’ Re-Issue Coming; Reveals New Live Dates

Courtesy: Nuclear Blast Records

As I Lay Dying is scheduled to re-issue its latest album later this year.

In anticipation of the record’s re-issue — a precise release date is under consideration — the band premiered one of the songs that will feature in the record Friday. It came in the form of the song, ‘Roots Below.’ The band also premiered a visualizer for the single Friday.

The song’s musical arrangement is a heavy, intense mix of metalcore and thrash. It takes listeners back to the band’s infancy with its breakneck speed guitar work and machine gun fast drumming. Front man Tim Lambesis’ growls and clean vocals pair with the intense instrumentation to make the song fully immersive.

Guitarist Phil Sgrosso talked about the creation of the song’s musical arrangement in a prepared statement.

“‘Roots Below’ was a track I initially wrote for the Shaped By Fire album, but at the time we collectively felt it needed more time and attention to develop to its fullest potential,” said Sgrosso. “We were finally able to piece it all together along with some other material taken from the Shaped By Fire touring cycle, bundling it all into a deluxe version of the album.”

Added Sgrosso, “Apart from the studio versions of ‘Roots Below’ and ‘Destruction or Strength,’ there will be an assortment of live songs captured on tour from 2019 in Europe, several ballad/electronic re-interpretations, a studio version of an instrumental track we wrote exclusively for the live show, an instrumental version of the entire album, as well as some other transitional pieces from our set that we wanted to share as part of this release. This has been a very productive first step towards getting back into the creative zone and beginning to focus on new material for next year.”

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the song’s debut. The lyrics provided with the visualizer hint at a theme of overcoming personal adversity and the causes, both internal and extraneous.

While the release date for the deluxe re-issue of Shaped By Fire is under consideration, the re-issue’s track listing is known. It is noted below.

Below is the Shaped By Fire Deluxe Edition tracklist:

  1. Re-Separation (instrumental)
  2. Roots Below
  3. Destruction or Strength
  4. My Own Grave (re-interpretation)
  5. Redefined (re-interpretation)

As I Lay Dying Debuts ‘Torn Between’ Video; Announces New Live Dates

Courtesy: Nuclear Blast Records

As I Lay Dying debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Torn Between‘ Monday.  The video features the band performing its new single, and crosses that with a story about a man apparently being reunited with a love interest thanks to an experimental tool that he has developed.

The song’s musical arrangement is a more melodic work than some of its past works.  The news release distributed about the video does not offer an explanation for the song’s lyrical theme, but from the story featured in the video, it would seem that the theme has to do with someone dealing with an internal emotional struggle of sorts.

‘Torn Between’ is featured in AILD’s latest album Shaped By Fire (2019)  The also has also produced the singles ‘Shaped By Fire,’ ‘Blinded,’ ‘Redefined‘ and ‘My Own Grave.’  Additionally, the band debuted the B-side ‘Destruction or Strength‘ on March 27.

Sales of the B-side — and a new t-shirt that the band is selling — will go to benefit the San Diego, CA-based nonprofit, Feeding San Diego, which works to feed low-income families, senior citizens and everyone suffering from unemployment by providing food for those people.  The sales will also benefit AILD’s road crew, since the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has cancelled the band’s tour.

As I Lay Dying Debuts ”Blinded’ Video

Courtesy: Nuclear Blast Records

As I Lay Dying debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Blinded‘ Friday.  Directed by Frankie Nasso, the video features the band performing its new single before a packed crowd in what is meant to reflect the band in a live setting.

AILD Front man Tim Lambesis talked about the video’s creation in a recent interview.

“We had an incredible experience working with Frankie Nasso, who chose to direct the video for ‘Blinded’ based largely on his personal passion for the band,” he said.  “Additionally, there was incredible energy from fans who showed up for the shoot, which made it an unforgettable experience.”

The musical arrangement at the base of ‘Blinded’ presents elements of many of its past compositions while its lyrical content presents a seemingly introspective statement in which front man Tim Lambesis addresses his past actions and trying to move past what he has done.

‘Blinded’ is the fourth single (and video) to come from As I Lay Dying’s forthcoming seventh full-length studio recording Shaped By Fire. The album has also produced the singles (and videos for) ‘Redefined,’ ‘My Own Grave‘ and ‘Shaped By Fire.’  The album is scheduled for release Sept. 20 through Nuclear Blast Records.

The album’s full track listing is noted below.

Shaped By Fire Track Listing:

  1. Burn To Emerge

The band released a collective statement about signing to the label.

“We are honored to join forces with Nuclear Blast Records in releasing our new album Shaped By Fire,” the statement read.  “Their legacy and contribution to the heavy music scene in undeniably incredible and we are proud to call their label home.  We are thankful for their support and enthusiasm, and together we look forward to sharing the best AILD record yet!”

The band added, “We are tremendously grateful to have found positive resolve from the worst moments of our history.  The previous chapter of our journey was one of pervasive hurt and pain.  Subsequent years found us on varied paths — all of which led toward resolutions of growth, healing and reconciliation.  As I Lay Dying’s collective purpose is to share a message of hope for everyone through the empowering outlet of music, and we are humbled by the overwhelming support we have received from family, friends and fans so far.”

In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the video for the album’s title track/lead single Friday.  The video crosses footage of the band performing its new single with a man covered in burns crawling on the ground of the set as burning embers fly through the air above him.

The band talked about the video’s treatment and the song’s musical arrangement in a separate statement.

“While lyrically akin to the other Shaped By Fire single releases ‘My Own Grave‘ and ‘Redefined,’ we explored some different musical territory to incorporate within our established sound.  We’d like to thank our director Mathias Arnell, all of the crew and actors that contributed to making this video with us under the very hot conditions.”
