US Metal-core overlords return with a brand new studio album.
Already huge in their home country (150,000 copies sold), As I Lay Dying’s UK profile has been steadily growing in the UK since the release of their last album ‘Frail Words Collapse’ in June ’03. With ‘Shadows Are Security’ the band has delivered a set of supremely polished yet savage Metal-core anthems that are sure to see them achieve premier league status by the end of 2005. The first pressing comes with a bonus live DVD.
....'Relentless aggression, machine-gun drums, and raw throated hollering are countered by intricate guitar solos and a cocky 'foot-on-the-monitor' swagger. The sorrowful lament of 'Song 10' shows that they're just as good when they take the foot off the gas too....thoroughly recommended.’ - Mark Griffiths-Kerrang.
