We finally have another big new release week with a little something for everyone.  Death metal, check.  Black metal, check.  Metal core, check.  There are a lot more checks below, so read on.


Wovenwar, the band which features most of As I Lay Dying amongst its ranks, has released video from the recording sessions for its debut album. First up, drum tracks…..and a great argument about Heaven and Hell not having a ride cymbal on it!


Metal Blade Records act Wovenwar have released the first bit of music since the announcement of their forming last week. The song, All Rise, sounds cleaner than As I Lay Dying, which doesn’t surprise as I’m sure the band want’s to distance themselves from their past as best they can.

I just received this press release from Metal Blade:

Metal Blade Records announce the signing of WOVENWAR featuring members of As I Lay Dying and Oh, Sleeper.

Recording complete and set for mastering in late April –first music from the new band coming soon!

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce that JORDAN MANCINO (drums), NICK HIPA (guitar), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass) of San Diego, California based metal act As I Lay Dying, have teamed up with vocalist SHANE BLAY (previously lead guitar/clean vocals in Oh, Sleeper) to create the new band WOVENWAR. Over approximately the last year, the band completed work on new material recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag) with mixing duties currently being handled by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium).

On Monday April 21, fans will get their first full listen of WOVENWAR’s debut single “All Rise”. While not the final mastered version, the song will be a proper representation of what’s to come when WOVENWAR’s self titled debut drops late summer 2014


Here is what the band now looks like:
