Among them? As I Lay Dying.

Revolver Magazine recently dubbed them “the future of American metal”.Of the band’s new album, vocalist Phil Labonte said, “People have a certain idea of what this band is. When they hear the new stuff, they will notice a new approach integrated with our original style. The riffs sound familiar, but with the new layers of song dynamics, it’s now a completely different anima (more…)
