August Burns Red's upcoming release Rescue & Restore is one of my most anticipated albums coming out this year. From what we've heard so far it looks like they are continuing with the more progressive metalcore sound they have begun to develop with Leveler. This new song 'Spirit Breaker' has a nice symphonic opening which is followed by a great wall of sound.
Check it out now:
The slower part just after the three minute mark is interesting. These guys are definitely pushing their song writing capabilities more and more with each album. It's cool to see how they have kept a consistent sound their entire career while being able to push their writing more and more forward.
Rescue & Restore is due out June 25th!
