The Powerless Rise: Lambesis & co. return with an epic album, seeping with intensity.
The members of San Diego, California’s metal act AS I LAY DYING are the kind of musicians who refuse to be measured solely by their most recent accomplishments.
AS I LAY DYING are not afraid to push the limits of their sound and always keep things moving: Their music grabs listeners by the throat and doesn’t let go.
Building upon the foundation that AS I LAY DYING has laid over the past several years, growing from a small San Diego outfit slowly and deliberately into a top priority international act, the band has become Metal Blade Records’ biggest seller with an extremely devoted following.
AS I LAY DYING has the goods to take it all the way and stake their claim as the metal band “you need to know about” in 2010 and beyond.
Produced by KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed by legendary producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, TRIVIUM, etc.), their new album “The Powerless Rise” goes a step further in honing the band’s already potent sound.
“We wanted to make sure our songwriting progressed and I feel we’ve achieved our goal in creating an album with greater intensity than any we’ve crafted before it,” explains AILD frontman Tim Lambesis. “We added layers and complexity to the melodies and yet we were able to do so without softening our sound like so many of our peers. Lyrically, ‘The Powerless Rise’ includes some of the most straight-forward songs I've ever written. I can honestly say that I am more excited about ‘The Powerless Rise’ than any release before it – I can’t wait to unleash it on our fans.”
“The Powerless Rise” promises to continue the band’s position as leaders and innovators in METAL in all four corners of the Globe.
