Album release show at Santo’s Party House today in NYC

The Grammy-nominated Metal group AS I LAY DYING, who recently debuted their new single and video for “A Greater Foundation” to an overwhelming response by fans, have launched an exclusive full-album stream for AWAKENED on AOL Music. Fans can listen to the album now at www.music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/AWAKENED is available today in-stores and online!

AS I LAY DYING will be performing a special private CD release show in conjunction with Metal Blade Records 30th Anniversary that will take place on street date in New York at Santos Party House. Starting September 14, fans can pre-order AWAKENED at three New York-area independent record stores and receive a FREE laminate that gives you access into the private NYC release show! Stores participating includes: Looney Tunes (West Babylon, NY), Vintage Vinyl (Fords, NJ), and J&R (NYC).

AWAKENED–which marks the group’s sixth studio album– is garnering early critical acclaim. In his 4/5 star album review for Alternative Press magazine, writer Jason Schreurs hailed, “Screamer Tim Lambesis has never sounded better than on a metal anthem like ‘Overcome,’ his shattered scream completely ripping faces. …Awakened is the best As I Lay Dying album you can point to as metal both modernized and maximized.” (October 2012).

Elsewhere, in his 4/5 star album review for Artist Direct , Rick Florino singled out the preview track “Cauterized” as “An unshakable anthem, the song is the best kind of aural assault and battery from one of heavy metal’s most dynamic outfits. Morphing from a steamrolling six-string storm courtesy of Nick Hipa and Phil Sgrosso, the track shifts into a polyrhythmic crusher fueled by drummer Jordan Mancino and bassist Josh Gilbert’s immortal groove. Tim Lambesis seamlessly segues from a gruff growl into one of the group’s tightest and toughest clean choruses to date.” Florino adds, “‘Cauterize’ is a metallic remedy of the highest order. As I Lay Dying prove to be a genre leader by progressing while pummeling, and it’s evidence that Awakened is another level altogether. They’re set to wake up the genre with a landmark album.” (September 2012)

For AWAKENED, the San Diego-based band–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–holed up in the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and mixer Colin RichardsonAWAKENED marks the follow-up to the Decas EP (2011) which reached #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart. The group’s last LP, 2010’s immensely successful The Powerless Rise, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10. The Powerless Rise also reached #2 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Music Albums Chart.

CALIFORNIA METALFEST V – AS I LAY DYING Headlines On Saturday, March 19th, 2011! Bands Listed!

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal favorites, metal music, metal odyssey, metalcore, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

CALIFORNIA METALFEST V – This looks like an extremely cool Metalfest to me! Tim Lambesis (vocalist & founding member) of As I Lay Dying is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist that I applaud tremendously, in this vast world of Metal. I consider Tim to be a prodigious Metal talent. The Powerless Rise (Metal Blade) is the most recent album from As I Lay Dying and one that I listen to consistently. As I Lay Dying tears it apart, per usual, on this strong album of Metal.

It’s the Extreme side of As I Lay Dying that made me gravitate to them in the first place, mixing multiple styles of Metal together to form their own standout sound. Metalcore, Metal and Extreme… we can play the genre game all day long here, just know that As I Lay Dying is one substantial Metal band out there today. Man, I wish this California Metalfest V was just down the street from me! Two words for any Metalhead that is going to this show… you lucky.

I get the biggest Metal kick out of Tim’s side project world-known as Austrian Death Machine. The Thrashin’ Death grooves that Tim Lambesis has created with Austrian Death Machine are infectious to my Metal lovin’ ears. Plus, the parody of Arnold Schwarzenegger through the character (voice-over) of “Ahhhnold” is just (gulp) fun Metal stuff. I recommend any rabid Metal fan out there to get their ears into Austrian Death Machine (if you already haven’t).

The above CALIFORNIA METALFEST V poster pretty much says it all when it comes to any general Metal info!
