As I Lay Dying is my favorite band. They have been ever since i first bought Frail Words Collapse, and probably will be for a long time to come, so when i heard that they were releasing a new album a paltry 1 year after The Powerless Rise, i got super excited. At the same time I was worried that it might not have the power or originality of their other albums due to the quick production time.

Here's where my review title comes in. READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE CD BEFORE YOU BUY IT! Otherwise you will be disappointed. This is not a CD full of new music, it is a celebration of the 10 year anniversary of As I Lay Dying.
There are 3 new songs, 4 covers of music that influenced the band, 1 rerecorded medley of Beneath the Encasing of Ashes songs, and 5 remixes of previous As I Lay Dying songs.
When i say remixes, i mean Dubstep/Techno remixes. That's where many negative reviews are going to get caught up.

This is a cd for the hardcore fans. If you are only mildly impressed by As I Lay Dying, buy the first three songs and their cover of Electric Eye, and be done with it.

For those of us that love everything As I Lay Dying does, run (do not walk) to the purchase button. You won't be sorry.

First off, this is not all original music here. There are some covers, some remixes, and 4 songs are actually original. The four songs alone are worth it to me, I was very impressed. Electric eye is awesome, and the remixes aren't to shabby (still like the originals better). If you are an overall fan of metal, and a fan period of AILD, you will absolutely love this cd. Congrats for ten years of making awesome music gentleman.

Decas, which means 10 years in latin, is an EP from As I Lay Dying to celebrate their 10 years as a band. Since their next cd isn't scheduled to come out until next year, they figured they would squeeze out a little something to hold over fans. It is not a full album, and not meant to be taken as such. Still, there are those that criticize this for having covers and remixes..They obviously did not look into the reasons behind this release. Here is a rundown of what I think of the EP.

1. 3 New, Original Songs
I fell in love with the 3 new songs almost instantly. These are all songs that are pretty well done, but just didn't fit on other albums. Paralyzed is relatively close to the "An Ocean Between Us" formula. From Shapeless to Breakable is a super heavy song, with an awesome chorus. This song gets rather close to an almost death metal feel. The next song, Moving Forward, goes in the complete opposite direction. It gives Josh (Does clean vocals) a chance to get the spotlight. The song is mainly clean vocals, which has never been done in an AILD song before. While it will obviously put off a few fans who only came for the "I want to punch a baby energy", it is a rather catchy song, and has an awesome solo.

2. 3 New Covers
The cover of War Ensemble by Slayer is intense, and debatably harder and smoother than the original.
The next cover, Hellion/Electric Eye is done rather well. As a long time Judas Priest fan, I expected to absolutely detest this cover. Josh does a great job with clean vocals. Tim's background screams in the song are pretty epic too. Guitar work is more solid than the original song. I think I actually like this cover as much as the original song...that's crazy
Coffee Mug by the Descendants, is the last cover on the album.

This is probably closer to a three and a half star review, but I probably would've been willing to round up anyways as you'll tell.

When I reviewed Disturbed's The Lost Children [Explicit] release I said that it was inappropriate to call that album fan service as it was targeted more towards people who hadn't gotten the B-sides from buying the singles and compilations as opposed to the fans that did. This is more of what I have in mind as fan service. Released to celebrate the band's tenth anniversary this is a compilation of new songs, covers, and remixes. The problem is that I'm not sure the remixes service many fans, but we'll get to that in a moment.

At the very least the covers and new material, the majority of the album, work really well. It's apparently become a trend this year to put Judas Priest covers out between Machine Head's The Sentinel, Disturbed's Living After Midnight (which admittedly was already released), and now a spectacular cover of Hellion/Electric Eye (with a really great video to boot, find that as well if you can) here. I'd argue that given the reduced price (under ten dollars most places) this is a must buy for these tracks alone.

But there are a few remixes here that I must advise you to avoid. The electronics in metal debate has been raging pretty much since the dawn of the genre and while I'm often for the idea (I'm even very much in favor of Korn's foray into dubstep that is attracting so much controversy) As I Lay Dying's music just doesn't lend itself to this kind of treatment. The songs don't work. They're at best a mildly entertaining distraction but that's generous at best.
