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.
