by Markus Eck (07/03) Quite an ambitious powerpack...As I Lay Dying from the US. The overpressured and brawling full throttle sound ignites within seconds only to explode just after entering your ear. After two well-celebrated releases on a small independent US label "Frail words collapse" is the first step towards a broader audience. This audience should now open their ears since As I lay Dying are anything but dying. They are wide awake, alive and kicking. Emotional and vehement but strikingly precise and accentuated Melodic Death Metal with latent hardcore references - As I Lay Dying learned how to produce a neckbreaking and gripping spiral of excitement, violence, despair and madness draging you deeper and deeper into their world. The speed-intense pieces on this punctuated album profit from the immense stage experience As I Lay Dying have gathered throughout the years. Virtuous Gothenburg Melodies and neckbreaking rhythmrampages convert into an impressive and intense listening experience.
