Minnesotaian metalcorers, After the Burial, have released the This Life Is All We Have digital EP.
Guitarist Justin Lowe had this to say on the EP and the upcoming album:
“Right now we are currently right in the middle of the tracking process of our new album. We’re almost finished with the guitars, with just a couple tracks to go. When we track the guitars for our albums we like to take our time getting the good takes, not relying on too much editing. There also usually tends to be changes being made along the way, with new ideas being born within the tracking process. If I had to describe the sound of the new material in one shot, it wouldn’t be easy. We’ve dedicated a lot of time working on these songs to make sure that you are hearing something fresh and new. Something that makes you feel good when you hear it. There’s some 6,7 and 8 string work in there and also a new lower tuning in C#. It’s hard to describe the sound unless you hear it. It’s almost ‘mechanical’ and very percussive. We love trying all sorts of new ideas, sounds, and pushing boundaries of new musical territory that will help set us apart from the rest. We’ve never been afraid to try anything; we want to keep you on your toes.”
