  • first off thier are alot of people who call these guys rip off’s or poser’s or just a band that can’t play at all. They are very very wrong. Frail words collapse is one of the best metal albums out there. Yes it is a metal ablum not a F*CKING HARDCORE ALBUM. Every song has break downs which fit very nicely into the the out of control music. 94 hours is by far one of the best tracks on the cd it’s very fast paced with a few breakdowns and the drum work by Jordan mancino is incredible. Believe me this is not a bad album as other people review it to be. Their just death metal fans. And death metal f*cking blows by the way. But anyways.

    This cd is just one of the best. alot of songs stand out from each other thier is maybe at least one similar aspect to them but they drift far from one another. falling upon deaf ears has some nice guitar work on it and yes the riff is just killer.
    Forever has to be one of the best songs on the album. the lead singer has some of the best vocal’s you can hear. Very clear instead of your averge whinny ass screaming that sounds like the guy was kicked in the nuts. Trust me as i lay dying may seem like a emo band but thier not if you just understand thier backround then you will know thier not. Buy this cd it’s f*cking sweet. every song kicks ass.

  • Now come on you have to appreciate a band that will scream, and growl its guts out. As I lay dying is on the forefront of hardcore music and they are good at what they do. Tim is able to scream his way through the whole album and I believe he even has some clean vocals in a couple of songs so he can sing. Also this band is known for Jordan, their drummer who is able to use his double bass in a way that I have never heard. In the first song “94 hours” Jordan has a breakdown with the double bass and it is incredible how fast he is. People try to say he used triggers in the studio but I disagree because I saw them live and Jordan did that double bass part live so he is actually playing that fast. That my friends is incredible. I also appreciate that As I lay dying can be brutal and not use profanity or use sexual overtones. Their lyrics are nice and clean and they are still brutal. Tim is able to go from the lowest of growls to a high pitched scream which I love to hear. If you ever get a chance to see these guys live then do yourself a favor and do see them. They are incredible live. The other member of the rhythm section, the bass player is able to hold is own with Jordan and the two guitarists are pretty good, but Jordan steals the show. What is incredible is that these guys are still very young. They still have a lot of room to grow and get better with their instruments which is scary for other hardcore musicians. Watch out America As I lay dying is a force to not be reckoned with. Give them a listen. God bless.

  • If you’re hesitating on buying this album because the band’s members are Christians, you should be ashamed of yourself. Religion isn’t the main focus of this album, however I was very pleased to learn that each of the members were “believers.” Being a Christian myself, and a fan of what is described as “ungodly music”, can be quite difficult. This band proves that yes, Christians are capable of producing heavy music. I’m sick of hearing people say, “You can’t tell this band is Christian, by listening to their music.” What the hell is that supposed to mean? The fact that Christians can’t sing metal is such a stereotype that needs to be forgotten.

    Anyway, moving onward. “Frail Words Collapse” is an absolutely amazing album from an extremely talented band. On first listen, I was a little disappointed that there weren’t any guitar solos, however the guitars are nothing to complain about. They compliment the album rather nicely. The drum work on here would have to be the instrument that stands out the most. I was blown away by them on first listen.

    It’s kind of hard to fit this album into a certain genre. There are so many of them. I think the best way to describe this album would be by labeling it “deathcore.” Each of the tracks on here are a combination of what can be described as melodic death metal with a MAJOR hardcore twist. Clean vocals aren’t a main factor on this album. There is little singing, but lots of fierce growling to make your ears bleed. The few vocals that are heard, however are sung extremely well. It would have been nice to hear a little more of them.

    The only problem I had with this CD at first was the fact that
    I thought it was a little repetitive. Each of the tracks had similar guitar work. However, this is one of those albums that eventually grows on you, and you can’t stop listening to it. There are wonderful melodies behind each and every song if you just listen close enough. This album is way more than just fierce growling and heavy thrashing background. It’s extremely intense. And the lyrics are about more than some dude whining about losing his chick, as some people said. Did you guys even read the lyrics? They were extremely well written.

    Oh, and one more thing. Many people complain about this album being too “emotional…emocore…blah blah blah” Sure it’s emotional, but remeber people, music without emotions, is no music at all. = )

  • This is one brutal cd. Not many clean vocals through the CD, most of it is all screaming. 94 Hours has to be my favorite song, followed by Forever. But the songs do get repetitive after a while. Has some replay value, though the listener may get bored after a while. All in all this is a great band and in the boundaries of Christian music it’s one of the best.
