August Burns Red
August Burns Red are a Christian metalcore band from Lancaster, in the middle of Pennsylvania, just up the road from where Amish folks still drive horse-drawn wagons. When they came together in 2002, some guys in the group were still in high school; their name, they've said, came from a newspaper headline about their original lead singer's ex-girlfriend lighting his Irish setter on fire. August Burns Red released their first demo EP in 2004; by 2007 they topped Billboard's Christian album chart, peaking at No. 81 on the overall Billboard 200, with their second full-length, Messengers. By that time, the band was already on its third lead singer, Jake Luhrs. Constellations, which also hit the Christian album chart pinnacle and was nominated for a Dove Award in the Best Rock Album category, followed in 2009, as did an EP of outtakes; a 7-inch vinyl cover of the Christmas carol "O Come, O Come Emmanuel"; and a remake of Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" for a compilation called Punk Meets Pop 2. The band has toured with like-minded artists such as As I Lay Dying, Enter Shikari, All That Remains and Underoath.

Foreign & Familiar
August Burns Red
Runtime: 2 hrThis documentary highlights over two years of August Burns Red's continuous touring throughout an entire record cycle. The title Rescue & Restore (Foreign & Familiar Edition) pays homage to the vast fan-base that August Burns Red has built over the years with multiple world-wide tours in North America, Europe, Asia, South America, & Australia. Rescue & Restore marks August Burns Red’s fifth proper album, fleshing out an impressive body of work that also includes a live full-length record Home, a collection of B-sides Lost Messengers: The Outtakes, and a 2012 holiday album, August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin' Hill, A Holiday Album, released over the band’s lauded decade-long career. Since launching out of Manheim, PA, the industrious outfit has successfully transitioned from shake-up-the-field upstarts to one of the biggest names worldwide in the genre. On stages across the U.S. to Dubai, Japan, Australia, and South America, from renowned festivals such as UK’s Download Festival to the Vans Warped Tour, which they joined again in 2013 as a main stage act, August Burns Red have spent years taking their music and message directly to fans, and in the process have grown into one of the leading forces in the modern metal scene, a fact bolstered by their 1.5 million Facebook fans and more than half-million albums sold.

Present, Future, And Past
We Came As Romans
Runtime: 60 minPresent, Future and Past was filmed as part of We Came As Romans' "Tracing Back Roots" tour at the House of Blues in Chicago and captures the energy and intensity of their live performances.
All That Remains
Runtime: 53 minIt may have taken a few years for Boston act All That Remains to make an impact on the metalcore scene, but with the release of their third full-length effort The Fall Of Ideals in 2006, All That Remains not only finally found the right balance of melody and aggression, but they also found a whole new audience, with the album easily outselling their previous efforts.
After a brief introduction and some pre-show footage of various fans screaming the bands name, All That Remains quite literally destroy with Become The Catalyst, The Air That I Breathe, Not Alone, It Dwells In Me, Six, This Calling, The Weak Willed and Indictment, all of which are lifted from The Fall Of Ideals.
The remaining four tracks This Darkened Heart, For Salvation, Tattered On My Sleeve and Focus Shall Not Fail are lifted from 2004s This Darkened Heart and seamlessly blend in with the groups more recent material without clashing too much.
All That Remains performance is near flawless, while the editing together of the multiple camera angles (Filmed by the renown High Roller Studios) retains the energy and excitement of the performance and the crowd participation perfectly. Audio wise, mixer Jason Suecof has managed to keep a raw edge to the bands sound, which gives All That Remains Live a very real live feel.
All up, All That Remains Live is a rock solid package that shows exactly why All That Remains are considered one of the better metalcore acts doing the circuit today. Highly recommended.
