Biography

All That Remains have no choice but to be honest. Ever since their formation in 1998, they've stayed true to themselves with each successive record. There's no pretense. There's no posturing. There's no pandering. Their seventh full-length effort, A War You Cannot Win [Razor & Tie], is no exception. The Massachusetts quintet—Philip Labonte [vocals], Oli Herbert ...

Editorial Reviews

All That Remains will release its much-anticipated new studio album, "A War You Cannot Win" via Razor & Tie. The new album will be the band's seventh studio album to date and their follow up to "For We Are Many."

"A War You Cannot Win" sees ATR reunited with longtime producer Adam D (The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage). The record is the culmination of an intense writing period for the group that began shortly after 18 months of touring in support of their last album "For We Are Many."

2.0 out of 5 stars I wanted them to "Rise! Again!" November 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Two years have passed since For We Are Many graced metalhead Ipods everywhere. Most agreed the album was a step in the right direction away from 2008's "Overcome." For We Are Many possessed DNA and residues from acclaimed - Fall Of Ideals -- with interesting twists. A War You Cannot Win showcases technical riffs, anthemic chords, and great solos. However, all the sharp tunings cant revive it from repetition. A War You Cannot Win falters on ingenuity - you've heard this album before.

I praised FWAM in 2010; you can find my review of it in my profile. A War You Cannot Win doesn't push forward nor captivates. My main focus - Adam D. I don't discredit his ability to produce technical albums. In the past, he's produced groundbreaking records. But where ATR sees it as "tradition," or "comfortable," only impedes their growth. They needed to depart from Adam and get someone with fresh eyes and ears. Consider As I Lay Dying's decision to get a new producer (Stevenson) - "Awakened" -- kicks and stomps through mud and unsheathes a scathing assault on the senses. The album hoists AILD's sound to a new level while remaining close to their routes. With Adam, ATR knows the environment and the process. Even though Adam is meticulous and calculated; it doesn't pay off this time. An outsider could look in. The best critiques come from those beyond the common norm.

Phil sounds great - undoubtedly. He has a powerful voice and a brilliant range. But more so on this record, his lyrics seem to stem from the likes of an angry teenager. Some of these songs would sound better if the lyrics were completely different (You Can't Fill My Shadow). If you speak of relationships, make it feel "desperate." The best vocalists are ones whose vocals transcend lyrics - not the case here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arguably downhill since The Fall of Ideals November 14, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I loved The Fall of Ideals. It's probably one of my favorite albums of all time as it was one of those rare albums where every single track is good... I never skipped a thing. When Overcome released I was a little torn as it seemed they went a little softer to be more radio friendly, but there were still some very good tracks there. It just wasn't the perfect album that TFOI was.
After Overcome came For We Are Many, and even though it sounded like they were TRYING to be a little heavier it just wasn't working anymore. Nothing struck me as well thought out and not a single song was memorable. A War You Cannot Win sounds like a white flag being waved in the camp of ATR. They've given up... they're done. What a mindless waste of such talent.

3.0 out of 5 stars A War You Cannot Win November 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After listening to this album I feel like ATR is trying to please too many people. I really really wanted this album to be great, after Stand up came out I was very unimpressed It seemed to be lacking any true mark of ATR.

I did enjoy the Vocals to an extent, most of it unfortunately seemed like they were going threw the motions, or watering down the content for a wider audience. I found myself zoning out many times threw out the songs at points they all seemed like the same song to me. I wish that they would not have overlapped the singing and Phils voice in several of the songs, what a travesty.

I felt like the album was more of an extension of Overcome to try and reach a wider audience, there are still parts that give me goose bumps, but they are few and far between.

The instruments felt somehow weak and just not up to snuff for an ATR album. There are a few songs with excellent instruments in them, overall though I did not feel the passion that was in it in the first couple of albums.

Overall it felt watered down and very disappointing for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacks almost everything ATR November 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sometimes bands take positive feedback from the wrong sources. In this case, ATR has taken signals from their increased airplay on radio rock. To the music's detriment.

On AWYCW, Phil's presence is greatly increased and Oli's is greatly decreased. Much more singing, much less power metal, more political lyrics, far fewer standout melodies, more barking, but less heaviness.

ATR has had substandard tracks in all of their major releases. This is an entire album of them. Each track tries almost to be a power ballad in some way. I know that's been metalcore's weakness, but it is indulged to the extreme here. It's the clearest critique I can provide of AWYCW -- that and it's just plain boring.

Some bands care about success more than metal. They don't last long. ATR is on the path to neither.

1.0 out of 5 stars All That Remains have left the building November 23, 2012
By adam
Format:MP3 Music
I have been an avid fan of All That Remains since This Darkened Heart. I was somewhat disappointed with Overcome due to the fact their sound had gone to a more radio friendly way but thought it was simply a one album phase to get more recognition. For We Are Many somewhat brought back the old aggression but still lacked the one aspect of ATR we have all come to love and that is Phils' screams. I did not purchase this album but have listened to the sound clips and can already tell I made a great choice in not doing so. ATR have gone on to reach a softer audience and more power to them but old fans of their first 3 albums might as well move on to other bands. It is a terrible shame that so much talent has removed the very aspects of their music that got them to this stage.
