As the Palaces Burn

Lamb Of God

Year: 2013

Runtime: 01:10:06

Originally released in May of 2003, Lamb of God's As The Palaces Burn is considered to by many to be one the most influential, modern day metal records of our time. The album is as uncompromising lyrically as it is musically. As The Palaces Burn takes an unflinching look at the events and attitudes that resulted from the 9/11 terrorist attacks on American soil. Songs like "Blood Junkie" are unequivocal in their condemnation of George W. Bush and his administration's jingoist stance. "Retribution or vengeance in matters not, as long as the pig stays on top of the ladder of bone his father has built," Randy Blythe howls for all to hear. It's courageous and blunt, a statement for the time, and one that the band felt compelled to make. "We all lived through that time and we had the vehicle to express those opinions," says drummer Chris Adler. "I think it would have been irresponsible to not speak our minds."
Josh Wilbur (who has worked with Lamb of God as both an engineer and producer since 2006) was careful to conserve the album's lightning-in-a-bottle energy. "A lot of people, including myself, love the original," Wilbur says. "The whole point was just to do a more 'hi-fi' version of an already great record and not to damage the killer vibe that Devin Townsend and the band had captured...Real musicians sweating it out in a studio in Virginia over a decade ago."

    Bring Me The Horizon

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 40 min

    Fronted by a tattooed clothing designer and influenced by death metal, grindcore, and emo, Bring Me the Horizon aren't the average deathcore band. The group was formed in 2004 from the ashes of several Sheffield-based outfits, with the 2003 Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean serving as the inspiration for the band's name. Singer Oliver Sykes, guitarists Lee Malia and Curtis Ward, bassist Matt Kean, and drummer Matt Nicholls initially established their own label, Thirty Days of Night, to release their debut EP, 2005's This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For. Upon signing to the higher-profile label Visible Noise (whose roster also included Bullet for My Valentine and Lostprophets), they reissued the EP to a wider audience. Bring Me the Horizon's full-length debut, Count Your Blessings, appeared in October 2006, with an American release following one year later courtesy of Epitaph Records.

    All That Remains

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 53 min

    It 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.

    Ensiferum was founded in 1995 by Markus Toivonen (guitar), Sauli Savolainen (bass) and Kimmo Miettinen (drums).

In 1997, the first demo was released, containing three songs.
    The highly stylized logo of Ensiferum has appeared on all of their releases.
    In 1998, Sauli and Kimmo left the band and were replaced by Jukka-Pekka Miettinen (Kimmo's little brother, then 14 years old) and Oliver Fokin. In January 1999, a second demo was recorded, which although it did not produce a recording deal, boosted the band's confidence. In November 1999 a third demo, "Hero in a Dream", was recorded, which was successful in obtaining a record deal with Spinefarm Records. The logo that appears on all the bands releases was designed for the third demo by Tuomas Tahvanainen, who also designed the logos for the earlier demos. In 2000, the band went into the studio to work on their first album, Ensiferum, which was released in August 2001. In the same year, Meiju Enho joined them as a keyboard-player.
