San Diego's As I Lay Dying, formed in 2000 by vocalist Tim Lambesis and
drummer Jordan Mancino, debuted in a relatively conventional metalcore format
with Beneath the Encasing of Ashes (2001), followed by
Frail Words Collapse (2003).
A quantum leap forward took place with Shadows Are Security (2005), that
featured new guitarists Phil Sgrosso and Nick Hipa and yielded poppy bullets
like The Darkest Night.
An Ocean Between Us (2007), featuring new bassist Josh Gilbert,
became a best-seller. The band's speed-metal was still as unoriginal as it
gets, making them sound like the American version of At The Gates, but it was
certainly well executed.
Metalcore rarely sounded as obsolete as it sounded on
The Powerless Rise (2010), like an impeccable replica of an old clock
alarm in the age of smartphones.
Beyond Our Suffering and Anodyne Sea are the melodic peaks.
Decas (2011) is a terrible career retrospective.
