Boring MTV band, these guy are so mediocre. There is nothing that makes this band stand out from most of the other bands you hear on here on headbangers ball. This is just another droned band that gives metal a bad name. Metalcore is a stupid bullshit genre and should be abolished. Seems anyone who can bang a guitar and drumset these days can make a CD. This band has such boring riffs, I swear they sound like any other screamo/metalcore band out there. The vocalist can't sing and just screams incoherently too.
As I lay dying blows along with any other metalcore band. Listen to some real metal like Shadows Fall, Mastodon, Trivium or Lamb of God.

Incredible band that toured with In Flames and Killswitch Engage. Their crazy double kicks and European-influenced guitars are insane.
I lost my voice during the As I Lay Dying concert.

Prior to this, a novel by William Faulkner chronically the Bundren family after the passing of Addie Bundren, as they try to bring her body back to her hometown and into the dirt she desired. The story is told piecemeal through short bits of alternating first-person narration. While it's no Sound and the Fury, its a bit more urban, since at some point they do arrive in a city...or town maybe.
Yo, Juanita got knocked up and tried for an abortion, but the clinic went all As I Lay Dying on her. (After Dewey-Dell's unfortunate experience)

Why's everybody keep tryin to tell this story? Wh' you foo's think this is, As I Lay Dying or somethin'?

I jus about ready-da pop a cap in someone's ass after that As-I-Lay-Dying road trip with my family.

A metalcore band that often gets a bad rap for having simple guitar riffs/solos. Many "metalheads" (Metallica fans) who wouldn't know a blast beat from a breakdown, take everything Lars Ulrich says as gospel, and actually bought St. Anger, (almost destroyed metal) fail to notice the masterful drum solos and excellent bass grooves.
"Dude, I went to the As I Lay Dying show and almost stomped to death in the pit. It fucking ROCKED!"

Book written by William Faulkner in a term of six weeks and unedited by himself. About the passing of a mother and the moving of her body within a white trash family. Boring and repetitive.
As I Lay Dying provided me with a good nap.
