Article: As I Lay Dying Release New Single and give it away for free!
American Metalcore-outfit As I Lay Dying have had some recent coverage here on the Baboon and it’s safe to say that most of us are quite fond of this five-piece. Their previous release Decas was something of a weirdo with a mix of new tracks, covers of material by bands like Judas Priest and Dubstep remixes of old songs, with especially the latter being something people frowned at.
The name of the new album was revealed yesterday, and I was quite disappointed to hear that it will actually be called Awakened, which is a bit of an uninspired name in my opinion. However, with the new single released, fans of the pre-Decas AILD are able to breathe freely as what I’m hearing sounds like classic AILD material.
The song is called Cauterize and starts with an intense introduction, followed by the usual tight riffing and melodic chorusses. As I said earlier, this is just classic, even a bit boring I dare say. In any case it’s a cool song, and can be downloaded for free here.
