August Burn Red are, on the surface anyway, another Christian metalcore band. That label just doesn’t seem to fit, however. They just have a quality to their music that stands out and can be clearly heard on this release. One might wonder how popular this band would be if not for a certain little So-Cal band known as As I Lay Dying. In short, this is a band worth checking out. They may not be the most original thing you’ve heard, but they make for a satisfying listen none-the-less.
AUGUST BURNS RED’s debut full-length ’Thrillseeker’ sold over 30,000 copies since its release on Solid State Records, and with the release of their 2nd full length, ’Messengers’ in June 2007, ABR is poised to become one of the biggest metalcore acts around. ’Looks Fragile After All’ represents ABR’s debut EP, and comes repackaged with brand new artwork, and a bonus DVD filled with live footage, interviews, photos, and more, from the bands formative period. This piece is a must-have for anyone seeking insight into one of today’s most exciting bands.
