HAHAHAHAHAHA you're f***ing funny. As I Lay Dying does NOT use a drum machine... trust me i've played drums for quite sometime now... they don't use a drum machine. secondly... who cares if they're christian? your statement just goes to show how ignorant and arrogant you are. religion should have nothing to do with how you view someone or in this case a band... don't get me wrong... i'm not christian or religious at all for that matter... but you're just being f***ing dumb.

Yes, As I Lay Dying is a Christian hardcore band, just like Norma Jean and Sinai Beach are as well. Yes, they do talk about God in their songs (what do you think "Forever" was about?). However, I don't think that should decide the amount of talent these guys have. I love the s*** out of some A.I.L.D., and Shadows are Security is one of my most anticipated of the year!

Ya, I got a promo copy of the new album, it's tight, more guitar work this time. Jordan's drumming is fast as hell, and the new video is pretty good. You can watch it on Yahoo Launch.

This is taken from - http://www.recroommagazine.com/interviews/asilaydying.htm

Debbie: So I know that you guys are a Christian band, I was just curious if you’re all like born-again or if you were brought up that way?

Tim: Yeah, all of us are born-again Christians. We each have different stories of how and why we became, but we’re definitely all Christians and we’re not ashamed of it or anything.

As I Lay Dying is a religious based band..although they may not look or sound like it they are what they are and some of their songs are about chicks....because love's a big factor in everyone's lives..and alot of their songs are about why we're here and that only God matters..which shouldnt be a reason to hate them...i sure dont hate them..i believe in god...but yes they have the greatest beats and riffs ever and their songs are so badass and heartfelt (favorite band)..

As I Lay Dying is one of the greatest metal bands ever! And hell yeah their christian! I've seen them more times than I can count on my hands and feet and I've talked to them just as much. And Jordan Mancino is one of the f***ing best double bassist on the drums I have ever heard! 94 hours is a pure example! No drum machine! A.I.L.D. just plain out is one of the best meatl hardcore bands to exist right now.

first of all, they are a christian band, they were on pluto records, but its not a bad thing to be a christian band. What about the likes of Haste the Day, Norma Jean, Zao, Underoath, and Sinai Beach. All great hardcore bands. But with the concept of their lyrics most of their lyrics are somewhat religion based. However the majority of it is about love and meaning in life. ("94 Hours" , "Collision", "Distance is Darkness", "Confide", "Through Struggle") All of these are well composed thought out hardcore songs. Who cares if they are christian, their lyrics are meaningful and it doesnt matter cause they don't mention god anywhere in their lyrics. Yeah and the whole discussion about Jordan's drumming that guy is just one of the most talented musicians out there.

Someone mentioned underoath as being a hardcore band, id have to disagree. And yea religion shouldnt define a band. And these guys dont preach in their lyrics which is good, and being christian doesnt make to band better, its the talent these guys have which makes them a good band. Underoath being hardcore, thats fuc ki ng churchgoing hilarious.

if u dont think AILD is christian than u are completley wrong. if you look up the lyrics to "behind me lies another dying soldier":

I want to bring You all that is in my heart
I want to bring You my everything
But I've failed You so many times
How can I stand here before You
When I begin to steal what only belongs to You
I am able to bring You nothing that isn't already Yours
I am so ashamed of what I ever called my own
Take what I have, take these broken remains
What can I give You that You don't already deserve
You laid down Your life when I refused to give mine

If you notice everytime the word you or your is used in that song that it is capitalized. That means that is is a holy reference. And these guys do preach in their lyrics. Maybe not coming out and straightforward using the name God, Jesus, or Lord but all of the songs have uplifting messages in them that u could a biblical refernce somwhere in the bible about wat they sing about in there songs.

And by the way religion should define a band.
