As I Lay Dying Vocalist Enters Plea
2013-05-10 by andcas | 295 Comments

As I Lay Dying frontman, Tim Lambesis, pleaded not guilty today to one felony count of
solicitation of murder from an undercover cop, as he was arraigned in the court. The
prosecution presented all the staggering evidence they have against the defendant, as he
looked on with a blank stare while shackled in a prison uniform behind glass.

It’s been revealed that Lambesis had emailed his wife back in August, informing he no longer
loved her, and how he didn’t believe in being a Christian anymore. A short time after he broke
the news, Meggan Lambesis discovered that her husband filed for divorce, and had a string of
sexual affairs with other women on tour.

Lambesis is accused of approaching members at the gym he attended, asking if any of them
knew of someone he could possibly contact to dispose of his wife. It didn’t take long for
authorities to be tipped off about his attempts to seek out a hitman, and they quickly sprang
into action by providing a decoy named “Red.”

On May 7th, Lambesis met with an undercover cop responsible for the arrest and told him
it was better for his children to have one healthy relationship than none. He was then
specifically asked during an audio recording if he wanted his wife dead, to whom he stated
without hesitation, “yes, that’s exactly what I want.”

When the basics of the deal were settled, Lambesis handed over an envelope that contained a
thousand dollars, along with many other incriminating information. He offered his wife’s
address, photos of what she looked like, security gate code instructions, and the details of how
to enter the home at just the right moment.

Lambesis also wanted to make sure that he had custody of the three kids they share when the
deed was carried out so he could form an alibi for his innocence. He is currently being held on
a three million dollar bail and will have his passport stripped while being forced to stay in San
Diego wearing a GPS monitor if payed.

start fresh. If the remaining members were to continue with a new vocalist, I think they should at
least change the band name.

What a story this has turned out to be. It's a shame too cause he was actually pretty talented and probably ruined a lot of opportunities for the rest of the band.

Defence lawyer Anthony Salerno told reporters that Lambesis did not intend to harm anybody and was apparently set up by the man at the gym.

"Law enforcement was being fed something by someone that I strongly believe was a snitch, was out to save his own skin and was trumping things up, exaggerating things," Salerno said.

Fish. let me insert parts of my original comment between yours. Maybe you will understand it better.

Out of respect? Band members are replaced all the time.

Lambesis was the founding member and integral part of the band. He's pretty much the face of As I
Lay Dying. Not to mention the band have been together for over a decade(or more). It must hurt to
lose a member that has embodied the band for so long.

When certain bands lose a member, that band can never be the same(Pantera, Sepultura). I'm not
saying that AILD are on this level, but to their hardcore fans they are. The remaining members
should keep that in mind when making a decision.

Change the band name? Why? Their sound probably wouldn't change, it'd be pointless.

I imagine the rest of the band want distance themselves from this event and
start fresh(has nothing to do with stylistic or sonic changes).

I'm happy with whatever they decide to do, but in my opinion this is the right decision.

$1000 isn't worth taking anyone's life, for one. If the cheap asshole would have paid a decent amount maybe it wouldn't have turned out this way. Also, he put these kids lives in way better circumstance than they were given in Ethiopia. I'm sure they'd turn out fine despite whatever christian misconceptions Mr. Lambesis has flowing through his head because his marriage wasn't working out. Goes to show he has no right to be a role-model in the first place since he hardly has a grasp on life himself, basically made himself a lie both to he and his fans. Fuck off, your band is boring and generically melodic and has only brought more shit to the once good metalcore table. Thanks for influencing a ton of shitty dime-a-dozen bands!

Where's proof of this?

in news stories, divorce papers, from personal friends and family of tim, his wife


none of those really constitute "proof" for what it's worth. His wife and sister could've told that
story to a reporter and a lawyer and that pretty much covers all of the bases.

but I mean yeah he's in a touring, semi-well known band so the assumption should start with he's

Sorry @NonApplicable, just still have a grudge for the style of metalcore that AILD popularized. So few bands try to explore anymore musically with the genre, they try to stick with a tried and true formula that was popularized by this band. They act like that's all there is. I don't really have a problem much with them personally, well other than they're always so goddamn melodic and their song formulas are boring, but in their time they did their craft quite well. It just sucks the more experimental and dissonant side of metalcore died off alot.

the news, Meggan Lambesis discovered that her husband filed for divorce, and had a string of
sexual affairs with other women on tour."

Even if he were found not guilty of this hitman shit, this would be enough reason not to like this dingleberry. He obviously got pumped using steroids, changed his appearance, started getting looks from hotter women, then gave up on his life.

Fuck Tim. I hope he meets a lot of boyfriends in the slammer. Good thing he's no longer a Christian.

The only people who don't like Bill Maher are the people who share the opinions of those he targets in his comedy

"roid rage" defense is gonna fall on it's face. Even in cases of extreme abuse most people will have surges and can be highly irritable, but actively seeking out someone over a period of time to murder your estranged wife is obviously something that is pre meditated. The guy needs psychological help and a hefty prison sentence.
