As I Lay Dying show strength

2020-03-27 by MrToothbrush | 29 Comments
As I Lay Dying have released a new single titled Destruction or Strength to aid with the Covid-19 pandemic. The song is an unreleased song from the Shaped By Fire recording sessions.

Their statement and the song can be found below:

"These are concerning and unprecedented times. Amidst the uncertainty of how long the COVID-19 pandemic will last, or how severe its impact will be, there are countless people desperately struggling to weather the storm.

In an effort to make a positive contribution to our communities and the people closest to us, we are releasing an unreleased song from our Shaped By Fire album sessions called "Destruction or Strength". It will be available on all streaming platforms and digital retailers, including Bandcamp as a “pay what you want” download. We will also be selling a t-shirt featuring the single artwork."

The proceeds from the sale of both the single and the t-shirt will be donated to the band's road crew and local charities.

It's a decent track. Pretty generic but I like it better than some songs on the album.

Was expecting a weightlifting video. I'm a touch disappointed.

This worth interuppting a relisten of Psychonaught for

Edit: No it was not worth it. Also what the fuck is the production here. Tims vocals are weirdly quiet, not quite buried in the mix but not at the fore front either

Too bad he put spent more effort attempting to kill his wife than the vocals for this song.

Even before learning the background as to why this song was released, it immediately sounds like a B-Side type of song. Not bad at all per say, quite enjoyable, but for As I Lay Dying to release a song that sounds even SAFER than any song on "Shaped By Fire" is saying something. But, the idea behind why they released this makes sense.

"Attempted murder. Now honestly what is that? Can you win a Nobel Prize for attempted chemistry?" - Sideshow Bob

think about how his ex-wife's kids wouldn't have a mother anymore if he wasn't such a fuck up and then ask yourself if he truly can be forgiven

also how hilariously cynical is this:
"In June 2014, Lambesis came out as an atheist, claiming that he, along with other members of the band, just kept pretending to be Christian just to sell records"

then as soon as he and his band need their career back, they're Christian again. what a joke lmao

I wonder if I would've liked AILD 10 years ago if this is what I heard first instead of Oceans of whatever. Sadly yeah probably...
