August Burns Red Checks In From The Studio

August Burns Red is currently in the studio with Jason Suecof, recording the follow-up to 2009's "Constellations." The band has now checked in with Alt Press to discuss the recording process. An excerpt from the Alt Press article follows:

“We know sonically he’s going to give us the record that we want, and while he is a bit of a zany, crazy guy—like, all over the place, a little A.D.D.—we hit a stride with him in the last couple weeks of doing our last record,” Guitarist JB Brubaker says. “We became good friends with him and he figured us out; we figured him out. And it just made sense for us to do it with him again.”

The still-untitled album will have more than 10 songs that lyrically run the gamut. Drummer Matt Greiner wrote a song about how the band’s hometown of Manheim, Pennsylvania, came together after a recent car accident involving four high school students. Vocalist Jake Luhrs’ contributions, meanwhile, tend toward “things that have been frustrating him in his life—whether it be family things or spiritual things,” Brubaker says. “Some of the stuff he’s written, it comes off pretty angry.”

Putting August Burns Red’s new music into words isn’t quite as easy. On the one hand, Brubaker says that it’s “much more melodic” than 2007’s Messengers and it’s “definitely coming out heavier” than Constellations. Still, he observes that it’s also maintaining the latter album’s “dynamic elements… such as clean sections and guitar solos and stuff.”

The Unblackening Of Metal

From the very beginning, heavy metal has been about rebellion against established norms and restrictive social institutions. That theme has never prevented metal from being influenced by the greatest of mankind’s various systems of organized repression, however. Using a guitar and a microphone to express discontent over the actions of parents and governments inevitably led to bands expressing their disgust with the beliefs behind those actions. Whether musicians are singing about it, railing against it, or just simply partaking of it in their free time, religion has an undeniable role to play in nearly every sub-genre of heavy metal.

Plenty of bands have been built up around an anti-religious atmosphere, whether a simple general sentiment or a full-on fervor that drives the music. Despite metal being frequently identified with an anti-religious standpoint, the style has more than its fair share or religious spokesmen. Famous musicians such as Dave Mustaine of Megadeth have never been particularly quiet about their Christian faith, even if they don’t expressly promote it in any given song. Explicitly Christian metalcore acts are also rapidly gaining widespread attention, with groups like August Burns Red taking over Hot Topic and acts like I The Breather touring the U.S.

In general, it would seem the thrash metal world either doesn’t care about Mustaine’s religious affiliation or is willing to overlook it for the sake of the music. Thrash certainly has its share of anti-Christian songs, but it’s a genre that’s more concerned with social issues or an overall aggressive musical feel than anything dealing with supernatural belief systems.

As any fan of metal can easily attest, not all genres are built equal, and what appeals to one metal head is a serious turn off for another. Black metal is easily among the most infamous of all metal styles, having cut its teeth in the early ‘90s across a back drop of church burnings and sensational media stories of power struggles between Satanic leaders. Names like Emperor and Mayhem were starting to make waves and become recognized in the underground not only across Europe, but also in the U.S. and abroad. More...

Christmas Metal 2010 Roundup

Another Christmas is just around the corner, which means jolly fat men in red suits scaring the bejeesus out of crying children and uncomfortable dinners with family members who don't actually like each other.

August Burns Red Posts "Little Drummer Boy" Cover

American metalcore act August Burns Red has kept true to its yearly tradition with re-working classic Christmas songs. Having previously covered "Carol of the Bells" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," August Burns Red have now posted its latest Christmas carol rendition of "Little Drummer Boy." The new cover song can be streamed at this location. August Burns Red guitarist JB Brubaker commented on the cover by saying:

"With 'Little Drummer Boy' I wanted to do something really different from any previous AUGUST BURNS RED songs. The end result is pretty much our attempt at down-tuned post metal, which is something I've been a fan of for a long time now. The song was recorded in drop A, which is much lower than we usually play. Recording the track was a lot of fun as I was able to incorporate a bunch of new sounds and techniques ABR has never used before like slide guitar, ukulele, and acoustic guitar. The icing on the cake was having Magnus Lindberg mix the track. Lindberg has done all the CULT OF LUNA albums, and I'm a huge fan of theirs so I was so excited to have him mix the track."
