As I Lay Dying

As a wise band once pointed out, what happens on the road always comes home. Sure, you can read into the darker side ofthat sentiment,but if you're talking about the San Diego quintet As I Lay Dying, for whom the road literally has been homesince day one, the never-endingtrail of unfamiliar cities, stages and faces that comes with touring has only cut a path towardsomething brighter.

As a wise band once pointed out, what happens on the road always comes home. Sure, you can read into the darker side ofthat sentiment,but if you're talking about the San Diego quintet As I Lay Dying, for whom the road literally has been homesince day one, the never-endingtrail of unfamiliar cities, stages and faces that comes with touring has only cut a path towardsomething brighter.

Formed in early 2001 to realize the developing musical vision of ex-Society?s Finest guitarist Tim Lambesis, As I Lay Dyingfirst tookshape as a trio, with (now-former) guitarist Evan White and drummer Jordan Mancino rounding out the lineup. Onemonth into their lifespan,the group hit the studio to record their first album, Beneath The Encasing Of Ashes, released thatJune by Pluto Records.

So, touring as relentlessly as ever behind their latest effort, As I Lay Dying found themselves landing on the radar of severalprominentrecord labels, with Metal Blade ultimately sealing the deal in March of 2003?and the band?s Metal Blade debut, FrailWords Collapse,dropping on an unsuspecting public that July.Long story short: Produced by Lambesis, Frail Words Collapsecrystallized everything As I Lay Dying had been working toward into amassive knockout blow.

Enter 2005. Strengthened by the road, creatively on fire, and with their lineup both solidified and contributing equally to thesongwritingprocess, As I Lay Dying enter Big Fish Studios in Encinitas, California (the same place they?d recorded Collapse),at the beginning ofJanuary. With Lambesis at the production helm, along with help from bandmate Phil Sgrosso, andengineer/co-producer Steve Russell onceagain behind the boards, the quintet sequestered themselves until spring andemerged with their leanest, meanest and most focused effortyet, Shadows Are Security. « hide
