Headbanger’s Ball Will Get A Taste Of “The Sound Of Truth” From As I Lay Dying

Grammy nominees, AS I
LAY DYING’s brand new video for “/The Sound Of
Truth/,” the newest single off of their album, AN OCEAN BETWEEN
US, will be debuted on MTV2’s Headbanger’s Ball over the
next few weeks.

Directed by Brian Thompson, who helmed their futuristic clip for
“Nothing Left,” the video for “The Sound Of
Truth” was made at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA and is a
continuation of the story the first video initiated. Like it’s
predecessor, the story for this video was conceived by the band,
fine-tuned by Thompson, and displays the irony and hypocrisy that
takes place in a decaying futuristic society.

A clip of the video will see its initial debut on
www.headbangersblog.com[1] on January 11th along with a special
commentary from vocalist, Tim Lambesis. The video will air in full on
the site on January 17th. The on-air debut will be on MTV2’s
Headbanger’s Ball on January 19th.

“Onstage, As I Lay Dying’s music is all about impact:
double bass drums pummeling at tachycardia-like rhythms, “says
the NY TIMES. “(AILD) kept its songs eventful; each tempo
change, and there were plenty, had the visceral effect of a sudden
gear shift…the Nokia floor was in happy turmoil.” Fans
continue to experience this ‘happy turmoil’ as the band
continues on the road with August Burns Red, Evergreen Terrace and
Still Remains.

Caedmon’s Call Gets Major Exposure With Their Single “Ten Thousand Angels” Featured On The Hit Television Show “Grey’s Anatomy”

Caedmon’s Call’s lyrically compelling song about redemption,
“Ten Thousand Angels” will receive a rare and lengthy place on an upcoming episode of the ABC
hit drama series “Grey’s Anatomy” on January 10th. Featuring vocals by Derek Webb, the song
will play for five consecutive minutes during an emotionally charged final scene.
In order for the song to fit the length of the scene, an extra minute was even edited in, and with
lyrics including ‘so lift up your heart now, to this unfolding, all that has been broken will be restored,
here runs deep waters for all who are thirsty, love has come, love has come for you’, its use on one
of television’s biggest shows is especially uncommon.
“It’s an honor to be asked to help carry some of the emotional weight of a powerhouse show like
Grey’s,” says Webb. “ I think the spiritual significance of a song like “Ten Thousand Angels” will
have some really special chemistry with what is bound to be an important episode in the season.”
“Ten Thousand Angels” is a bonus track on the group’s current release, Overdressed, which was in
the top 5 (no. 5) of iTunes Editorial list of 2007 for overall “Best Christian Albums”. For three days
only, catch a sneak peek listen to “Ten Thousand Angels” at this link:

Throwdown “Holy Roller” Video Premiere

*THROWDOWN’s* new video for “Holy Roller” will make its debut on
Headbangers Ball (MTV2) this Saturday, December 1, so get ready!
Singer Dave Peters said “Andy did an exceptional job of reading in
between the lines of the lyrics and meaning of the song and
translating it into visuals centered around a really imaginative
storyline. “Holy Roller” in particular is a song that we don’t want
taken for face value, so it was very important to us that the images
for it were just as accurate as they were powerful. The song speaks
to the nature of hypocrites and their proclivity toward punishing the
rest of the world for their own skeletons and insecurities. It’s a
hostile song with a lot of energy. Andy’s shots and editing lended
itself real well to that.”

Meanwhile drummer Ben Dussault said “Even though snakes are pretty
cliche right now… they just look so brutal in the right video! PS.
no animals/insects/critters were harmed during this process, just
band dudes! Enjoy.”

Throwdown will head out on a HUGE US tour this winter, stay tuned for
