As I Lay Dying - Shadows Are Security (CD)

When you hear a metalcore band like As I Lay Dying thrashing and screaming like they do, the last thing you'd expect them to actually be singing about is love and God! But that's exactly the topics covered by this five piece outfit on their latest album, which also happens to be one of the overall best I've heard this year.
The album is also noted as one of the bands most accessable as they've added more melody and a even a few singing bits to the speedy guitars and machinegun drums that are their trademark.
I highly recommend checking this one out, as this is a band that proves you don't have to be a badass, beer drinkin', devil-worshippin' metal head to make metal on this level that rocks. As noted in Revolver magazine, these guys are definately one of the up and coming bands you need to know.
CD Rating: ****

Must Hear Tracks:
- Confined
- The Darkest Nights
