they should do something heavier, ditch the cleans, dunno, this is too predictable. Then again, most hardcore AILD fans probably want this exact sound.

I think they uploaded the wrong file, I'm pretty sure this song is already on a previous album.


Joke attempt aside, it's a normal As I Lay Dying song.
I agree that ditching the clean, for the single at least, would have been a good idea.

Ok the song isn’t terrible, but here’s my hot take:

Phil needs to leave too.

He’s the one churning out the same riffs and solos. New guys sound great and tbh…so does Tim. The opening and most of the song sounds like a B-side from Oceans, but that riff at 0:43 is sick as fuck and I’d bet dollars to dog nuts that was Ken’s contribution.

new song is ok, but last album cycle the lead single was far and away the best song on the album so I'm not really getting excited. The solos were nice, but honestly, some of the riffs and solos on The Powerless Rise completely shit on this

Not especially fond of how tryhard this is, it's not like they're reinventing anything, even for their own standards. New vocalist is fine, but nothing will replace Josh. Blinded remains the best thing they've put out, but I'll keep an eye out for what's next

Just went back and listened to Blinded from this album due to homey up above saying it’s the band’s best song. While I disagree with that statement the song is an absolute heater. Miss Josh’s cleans already.

The replacements for the band check out, yet the whole song feels off. Maybe it's what happens after the opening riff, maybe it's the chorus, but it doesn't feel like As I Lay Dying anymore. The song isn't bad or anything, but it lacks that distinct aura that the band somehow managed to capture in every release (even if it all does kind of sound similar)

To me it’s mostly the cleans. Foreign voice for AILD.

No he was divorced or separated when the incident went down. The motive for killing had to do with child custody stuff. He didn’t go into those details but Tim was on Jasta podcast twice recently and they did discuss stuff related to all that a good bit. I recommend watching the first part. The 2nd part is with Tim and Ken Susi.

2024 and people still talking about wrong kind of metalcore. It's thrashy melodic metalcore. It bores me to shit but I totally understand someone might like it. Nothing wrong with this particular song. Also there is revival of melodic metalcore going on lately. Some young promising bands are picking up the genre (Balmora?). Calling it wrong type of metalcore is fucking stupid.

The "nothing amounts to anything, nothing is important" philosophy is an illusion. It always end up the same: you have to admit that things matter(ed) to you.
Also, it rests upon the idea that we are in control of the importance we give to things, that which is also an illusion.

Is this about ego death? My friend always says similar stuff but I never quite grasp it.

Re: the plot to kill his wife, getting custody of his kids makes more sense than trying to get some strange but no clue what he thought would've happened after the fact even if he was succesful. He's a self employed touring artist, is that the best situation for his kids?

They've needed to change their sound for ten years. Can't believe Tim got out of jail and was like -- yup, im reformed, gonna produce the same exact shit. especially now that he's making money again, like bro, make a change. you got your cash grab, make something soulful at all.
