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 of that sentiment,but if you're talking about the San Diego quintet As I Lay Dying, for whom the road literally has been home since day one, the never-endingtrail of unfamiliar cities, stages and faces that comes with touring has only cut a path toward something brighter.

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

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

So, touring as relentlessly as ever behind their latest effort, As I Lay Dying found themselves landing on the radar of several prominentrecord labels, with Metal Blade ultimately sealing the deal in March of 2003?and the band?s Metal Blade debut, Frail Words Collapse,dropping on an unsuspecting public that July.Long story short: Produced by Lambesis, Frail Words Collapse crystallized 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 the songwritingprocess, 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, and engineer/co-producer Steve Russell onceagain behind the boards, the quintet sequestered themselves until spring and emerged with their leanest, meanest and most focused effortyet, Shadows Are Security. « hide
