All That Remains

Massachusetts' All That Remains balance surgically precise riffs with soaring vocal choruses that aren't afraid to flirt with emo at its poppiest. Shadows Fall vocalist Phil Labonte and guitarist Oli Herbert -- an innovative shredder fond of unusual modes, like the Hungarian minor scale -- formed the band in 1998, and by 2002 they had signed to Metal Blade. After a few lineup changes, including the addition of guitarist Mike Martin, 2004's This Darkened Heart proved the band's breakout album, with the production of Killswitch Engage's Adam Dutkiewicz putting just the right degree polish on their fusion of Swedish black metal stylings and American emo yearning. In 2006 they followed up with The Fall of Ideals and hit the road with the Ozzfest before strutting their stuff on 2007's incendiary All that Remains Live. For all the hardcore swagger on display on stage, 2008's Overcome encountered a backlash from fans none too enamored of the band's radio-ready choruses.

    All That Remains

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 53 min

    It may have taken a few years for Boston act All That Remains to make an impact on the metalcore scene, but with the release of their third full-length effort The Fall Of Ideals in 2006, All That Remains not only finally found the right balance of melody and aggression, but they also found a whole new audience, with the album easily outselling their previous efforts.

    After a brief introduction and some pre-show footage of various fans screaming the bands name, All That Remains quite literally destroy with Become The Catalyst, The Air That I Breathe, Not Alone, It Dwells In Me, Six, This Calling, The Weak Willed and Indictment, all of which are lifted from The Fall Of Ideals.

    The remaining four tracks This Darkened Heart, For Salvation, Tattered On My Sleeve and Focus Shall Not Fail are lifted from 2004s This Darkened Heart and seamlessly blend in with the groups more recent material without clashing too much.

    All That Remains performance is near flawless, while the editing together of the multiple camera angles (Filmed by the renown High Roller Studios) retains the energy and excitement of the performance and the crowd participation perfectly. Audio wise, mixer Jason Suecof has managed to keep a raw edge to the bands sound, which gives All That Remains Live a very real live feel.


    All up, All That Remains Live is a rock solid package that shows exactly why All That Remains are considered one of the better metalcore acts doing the circuit today. Highly recommended.
