As Hope Dies

Legions Bow To A Faceless God

Undecided 23

Released on August 12, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Orange County, California's AS HOPE DIES are true legends when it comes to their craft, taking listeners from one end of the human spectrum to another, while creating a sonically methodical weave work of brutal and harmonious rhythm patterns, crushing harmonies, and life ending prose, all with the resiliency of a condemned man going to the electric chair. In the past, AS HOPE DIES have shared the spotlight with such luminaries as CONVERGE, DROP DEAD, CRYPTOPSY, DIMMU BORGIR, and HATEBREED among others... proving themselves worthy of both their present and future successes within the confines of the hardcore, noise, and metal communities. AS HOPE DIES have thrived since the release of their debut EP Birth Place and Burial SiteToday, the band is as world-altering as an atomic bomb, their newest offering a 9 track towering trip through total devastation. More focused and mature than ever before, it is a sincere outpouring of total emotion. It begs for total attention from willing and focused ears, and unlike its contemporaries, its bludgeoning song writing and crushing hooks are mind-numbing. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, AS HOPE DIES debut Album for Undecided is a truly awe-inspiring work from a uniquely formidable band.

This is a good cd, I think there are a lot of bands like this around now. Kind of metal bands that are making a killing in the hardcore scene, so obviously there is a few bands that are starting to genericise the sound a bit

Thankfully As Hope Dies do not, I mean I think there are few parts where the cd gets a bit formulaic, but generally it has enough good songs and riffs to satisfy.

Would recommened it to fans of Bleeding Through or As I Lay Dying

Although if you don't have either of those bands cd's then get them first

After the long ass month and a half wait, It's HERE! I was extremely excited to get this album and to some extent I wasn't let down. Songs like "Legions Bow to a Faceless God" and "Led Astray" make this album, while "To Slumber" and "Painful Truth" break the album. The breakdowns, the drums, the vocals, everything is great, but I don't know if it compares to "Birthplace and Burial Site" but this is definitely going to spin in my CD Player a hundred times over. I suggest "Birthplace" then "Legions.."

Well, it's finally here. It's been delayed for a whole fucking month and a half but it's here. This album is insane. Extremely fast drumming and metal riffage accompanied by piercing screaming and the songs are relentless, their playing is continously fast throughout their song with lots of changes and breakdowns. The lyrics are great and deal a lot with their views on religion (Jesus fanatics beware). However, there a couple problems. This didn't impress me as much as their first EP...there aren't as many instrumental breaks, awesome solos, or harmonious parts with acoustics, violins, and pianos. Also, the album clocks in just over 30 minutes. This wouldn't bother me so much if 2 of the tracks weren't 1-2 minutes songs with slow ambience noise and low singing. Despite this, this is still a great fucking CD and I hope these guys stick around for a while to create more music. All in all, buy this shit.
