Single Minded: As I Lay Dying "Cauterize"

As I Lay Dying is one of those bands I never thought I would like. Many years ago I wrote them off as just another screamo act. Things began to change when I saw them on one of the Sounds of the Underground tours. I had missed the first few opening acts and found these guys just about to take the stage. All I can say is wow! They were pretty impressive and I have been a fan ever since.

I have liked how their style has trended towards metal and away from metalcore and screamo. There are still some element to b found of their early style, but their trending sound is quite good. They are readying the release of their next album, Awaken, and have unleashed a new single upon the world. The new tune is called "Cauterize" and it is pretty good, plenty of crunchy guitars and melody, elements that have become their calling card.

Here is the lyric video:
