So, SuperRadMike and I have decided to take a cue from BurnTheBlueSky and AdamDodd and do a co-op review of the new As I Lay Dying album, ‘The Powerless Rise’. Inside you’ll find TWO reviews where we each state our opinion about the band’s 5th studio release. Leave us some comments to let us know what you think.

San Diego-based group As I Lay Dying has put a huge sample of their new single ‘Beyond Our Suffering’ up on their MySpace page (click HERE to check it out). This single comes off of their upcoming 5th album, ‘The Powerless Rise’, due out May 11th.
Metal Blade Records has given As I Lay Dying’s fifth full length “The Powerless Rise” a May 11th release date. No word yet on tour dates in support of “The Powerless Rise” but I’m sure they will be announced super soon. I’m also super pleased to share the artwork which was done by Jacob Bannon of Converge, he’s also been responsible for all of their previous artwork since 2003′s “Frail Words Collapse”.
Phil Sgrosso, guitarist of As I lay Dying, has issued an update on behalf of himself and the rest of the band in regards to the new album, “The Powerless Rise”.
“We’ve been pretty busy the past few months. We´re about several last minute pickscrapes/thunderchugs away from finishing ALL tracking for The Powerless Rise. We´ve had Colin Richardson and his assistant Martyn “Ginge” Ford out in San Diego working on mixes every day for about a month so far.
It took a bit of time for us to get the guitar tone in the right place, but we’ve finally settled on something we all love and compliments the drums and bass quite nicely. Josh and Tim´s vocals are sounding great as well. Colin and Ginge are doing a killer job!” READ MORE
