As I Lay Dying have been on the scene for more than a decade now, and they are back with their sixth studio album 'Awakened. In the fickle, ever-changing world of trends and short attention spans, it can be difficult to build a lasting fan base, especially in the metalcore genre. However, AILD has managed to develop a sound that is consistent and recognizable. All the ingredients from past AILD albums are on 'Awakened' - a mix of harsh and melodic vocals, catchy hooks, palm-muted guitars and monster breakdowns. Awakened’ is not breaking new ground when it comes to metalcore music, but if you want an expertly executed, well-written album, As I Lay Dying deliver the goods. Filed Under: As I Lay Dying.
No, As I Lay Dying know exactly where their strengths lie, as they thoroughly demonstrate on’ Awakened’. The album certainly puts its best foot forward by lining two of the band’s best tracks to date, ‘Cauterize’ and ‘A Greater Foundation’, front and center, conserving more progressive pieces for later on the record. Furthermore, ‘Awakened’ displays something generally lacking on previous records; the band creates their most defined breakdowns so far, especially on the former of previously mentioned tracks and later on ‘Overcome’

As I Lay Dying are one of the few metalcore bands who still have new releases to look forward to. While the first two releases from this group may have been somewhat mixed, the quality and sheer heaviness that the band aimed for on the following releases, An Ocean Between Us and The Powerless Rise, is almost undeniable. That’s why it’s difficult to reconcile with an album like Awakened, a disc that feels more like the band decided to go back to the first two albums and pick from their less original material and then rewrite it with the lessons learned on their latter works. Cauterize is one of the stronger songs on Awakened; it is one heck of an opener. However, it’s probably in the mid- to high-tier amongst the mass of As I Lay Dying work, which doesn’t bode fantastically.
