why this band doesn't get more credit is beyond my perception. personally, i prefer them to both Shadows Fall and Killswitch Engage (both big Mas. metalcore bands). This Darkened Heart was hardly short of a modern metalcore masterpiece, and i can't wait for The Fall of Ideals....the preview songs, This Calling and The Weak Willed are SICK. their new drummer Shannon can pummel on the double bass like crazy, of course Oli and Mike are at the top of their game, they got a new bassist too, called Jeanne, and Phil's voice is sounding better than ever. awesome band.

any fans?

their myspace page (think their orginal site is being renovated)

download This Calling from there, and also u can hear another new song...The Weak Willed.

have fun....can't wait for the replies..hehe

Wow, the new songs are sick! Much more metal than their previous stuff. Phil's growling is awesome, the drums have improved, and the guitars are spectacular. They're great live as well, really spot-on stuff. My only concern is that their new album will take to the heavy verse-clean chorus formula of KsE, but I think they're much too talented to do that.

edit: I just listened to both songs and they had that... fuck. I won't be buying the album if that's all it sounds like. And their new drummer should really be in a death metal band, he's all over the kit, sounds a bit like a cross between Vinnie Paul and Tony Laureno.

@ me. Thanks for clearing that up.

I have to say, the dude with the guaged ears and fauxhawk in that picture looks quite retarderated.


Probably the new drummer.


Oh well.

Yeah, but it was meant to be an All That Remains Thread. Anyway post anything and everything you can about all that remains from here because the're a great band and hopefully this can still be a great thread.
#26
I personally think TFOI is going to be pretty sick, and heavier if The Weak Willed is any indication. I really like how Phil went with some death metal-esque growls on that song. I loved TDH, and I'll be getting this as soon as it comes out. I really want to see them live, as I hear they put on a good show. And BTW, I think ATR are far more musically talented/creative than Killswitch will ever be.
#27
yea....oli herbert is one of the brightest and most talented metalcore guitarists of today. and phil did a great job by quitting shadows fall....Art of Balance was good, but The War Within went rlly stale after a few listens. let's see how Fallout from the war goes. but yea....i'm also gonna be among the first to pick up a copy of The Fall of Ideals.

^ Yeah the clean vocals suck, but he's actually doing some DM-style growling and the drumming kinda offsets the annoyingness of the clean vocals.

This Calling. Clean vox completely killed it for me. I listened to the other song and it's a lot better.

look...clean vox are good if used in moderation. if they throw it into every other chors, then that would be rather disappointing. and anyway, Phil's clean vocals are far better than most of the other metalcore clean vocals crap crooning u get nowadays (*ahem*Bleeding Through*ahem*)...it's a much better stronger clean vocal.

The clean vocals dont really bother me I think its a good change of pace, I just hope they dont follow it as a forumlat as LedZepplin mentioned, the end of a heartache got old fast because of that same formula.

yup.

End of Heartache was too boring for many listens, unlike Alive or Just Breathing. The Fall of Ideals shouldn't be that at all. i have enough faith in ATR to believe that they'll go in the right direction.

Haven't really heard much from All That Remains. "Tattered On My Sleeve" really gets on my nerves, though.

That's probably the worst song they've ever written, haha. Listen to This Darkened Heart or And Death In My Arms.
