Christian metal outfit As I Lay Dying has entered the Billboard Music DVD charts at number 2 with their first DVD, "This Is Who We Are." The DVD is also finding success north of the border as it debuted at number 3 on the Canadian music DVD charts. Reports claim that the DVD has already gone platinum.

Speaking on the success of the DVD, frontman Tim Lambesis says: "I’m completely honored to have our DVD reach so many people in only its first week out. Needless to say, it’s a great achievement for our band, but it also goes to show that metal music has been opening new doors. Regardless of what mainstream media pushes, there are enough diehard fans out there to make something like this happen."

People are quick to label them as "Christian Metal", even though they refute the "Christian Metal" title and say that they are a bucnh of Christian guys playing metal music....anyways,...how many of us are "Christians'", and aren't really Christian at all..? That point being made, I think they made a great DVD, especially with their last effort being completely different from what they have done before and from what people expect from them.
