Biography

All That Remains have no choice but to be honest. Ever since their formation in 1998, they've stayed true to themselves with each successive record. There's no pretense. There's no posturing. There's no pandering. Their seventh full-length effort, A War You Cannot Win [Razor & Tie], is no exception. The Massachusetts quintet—Philip Labonte [vocals], Oli Herbert ...

Product Description

ALL THAT REMAINS are poised to be the next breakout hard rock band with the release of their highly anticipated new album Overcome, produced by Jason Suecof (Trivium, Chimaira, Devildriver). The group has developed a rabid fanbase the old-fashioned way: through years of touring, including 150-plus dates a year on every major metal festival (Wacken, Warped, Ozzfest, Sounds of the Underground) and with nearly every notable band (Slipknot, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Bullet for My Valentine, DragonForce, As I Lay Dying) in the scene. Along the way, theyve sold hundreds of thousands of records, placed music in film (Saw 3) and video games (Guitar Hero 2), and cultivated an online presence guaranteeing an ever-growing career and fan base. Now, with Overcome, ALL THAT REMAINS combines a desire to continually evolve with the trademark heavy and technically-proficient sound established on their previous releases. Intertwining heavy music and virtuoso solos with unmatchable melody, Overcome builds on what their previous releases only hinted at and proves that the band doesn't simply possess flashy production, engaging artwork, or memorable songs. Instead, ALL THAT REMAINS has all three integral elements wrapped up in one undeniably heavy and aggressive, yet irrefutably memorable, package.

well when i first bought one of their albums quite a while ago, "this darkened heart", i thought it was okay-ish. i didnt listen to them for quite a while and then out of no where i thought id give their new album a try. And i thought that this album is one of my favourites all times. I love the fact that they sing more, because after a while his scream gets a bit too samey, but the singing is quality especially on "Days Without". Overall a fantastic album, and i recommend it to anyone who likes the old sort of trivium, and likes the kind of, scream verse, sung chorus.

At one stage all that remains was one of my most favourite bands, after releasing the past 2 albums 'this darkened heart' and 'the fall of ideals' i was excited for their new release 'overcome'. All i can say is that im not such a big fan anymore... theres less screaming and more singing, i know what your thinking that aint that bad cus hes got an awesome voice, well yeah but no they insist on putting this stupid effect on his voice which sort of ruins it! all i can say is that its an ok album one just for the collection, and you may get it out every once in a while but if you own the previous albums stick to the memory you have of them and dont buy overcome!

Having just been paided I thought I'd buy some music and naturally all that remains was the 1st band that came to mind so I bought all 4 of their albums, and although they are all gd Overcome and the fall of ideals are the best by far. Overcome though is said by many to not carry on with the traditional all that remains style of music...well it does quite well, granted it is slightly less screamy in places than fall of ideals but its still an amazing album; and i wish people would stop comparing it to the fall of ideals. The album overall is superb lots of guitar solos, heavy drumming throughout and vocals that fit well together, which makes even the softer songs like 'forever in your hands'extremly gd.

The best songs on the album...hummm its hard cos their all so gd but i'd have to say chiron and two weeks are the best thankfully these are towards the beginning of the album so 1st impressions are very gd, a friend of mine who went to see all that remains live cannot stop listening to their new album and he's right to do so this is in my opinion the best album they've done (followed closely by the fall of ideals) and is definatly worth the money.

the album offers a wide range of instruments, from drums to guitar to bass. The drumming is quick and fast, giving a real good beat to the songs.

An OK metal cd, but a let down for an ATR cd 23 Sep 2008
By Brian Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Let me start out by saying that I am a huge All That Remains fan and I would love nothing more than to just put up a review saying "Totally Awesome CD!!!!! THEY DID IT AGAIN!!!", but that would just be lying to myself and to the people on the fence about this CD.

First a little bit about the last album: As an ATR fan, I loved the amazing progression from This Darkened Heart to The Fall of Ideals. In my opinion, ATR stepped up their game in every facet and put out an amazing metal CD that shines on every front. The drums took a big step forward with the integration of more intricate beats, the solos and guitar riffs shone through and actually enhanced the music instead of just being filler. Finally, the vocals progressed into some of the best metal vocals I have heard in years. Phil displays a whole arsenal of screaming and singing styles that I just couldn't believe. In short, I thought it was a brilliant CD and I couldn't wait for the next release (see below)

The new CD: The bottom line is that it just isn't as unique and solid as the previous releases. I am not going to sit here and rail on ATR for wanting to try something new and put out a few songs with a heavy dose of clean vocals, but it is how it was done that really makes it painful. However this album was recorded, they managed to take away any trace of Phil Labonte in the vocals and just leave it with overproduced clean style vocals and, in my opinion, screams that are a clear step down from Phil's various screaming styles on The Fall of Ideals. Several of the songs just seem sort of "dialed-in" with a generic clean vocal chorus and an OK screaming verse. Also, I keep finding that the screaming parts of the CD are lacking in intensity. It seems that the volume of the vocals during screaming sections is a little low and so these parts lack something.

Don't get me wrong, there are still some great solos, parts that make you go wow, and you can definitely still hear the unique style that makes ATR great. However, these parts are too far between and a loyal ATR fan will find him or herself listening to the whole album and realizing it just isn't up to par with the originality and energy of their previous release. If you love ATR, I would still recommend this CD because it does show glimpses of what makes them a great band. In the end, ATR put out an pretty good metal album that in my opinion is a let down for a group of All That Remains talent and potential considering their previous work.

worried about vocals? 16 Feb 2009
By B. Calabro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Im seeing toooo many reviews about Phils vocals when we're missing a VERY IMPORTANT aspect of this band. The instrumentals on this album are just as good as Fall of Ideals and you people are not realizing this. Yes the band is well known for Phils vocals, but do you think they'd be anywhere without the PHENOMINAL drumming of Shannon Lucas? (Though they have jason costa now) Or the playing of Mike and Oli? You guys are putting WAY too much focus on PART of the band, NOT REMEMBERING THAT TOURING TAKES A TOLL ON SOMEONES VOICE. Listen, im a drummer, and i give vocalists all the respect in the world, and pinpionting them on a subpar album and giving them the blame is BS. Sometimes the vocals cant be as intense as past albums. THE CD IS GOOD, AND THATS THAT.

Progressive 29 Dec 2008
By Cjrizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All that remains is most definitely a remarkable band. The field of music they chose to place themselves in is metal, but it is more of a progressive style of metal. This CD is not as brutal as their others, but in reality, the others were not that brutal to begin with. The guitarist are pure finess, not power chord, riff chugging, no tallent musicians. If your looking for something truly heavy, this will not be your cup of tea. I loved this CD, personally. It sounds to me like they have stuck with their style and progressed upon it. Heavy, melodic choruses, catchy tunes you cant help but sing along with, solos that blow your mind, unique vocal styling, unique song writing, I could go on. I dont think they have changed much throughout their career. I recommend it to anyone who really likes the band. KSE as well.

Not Easy To Overcome Its Flaws 6 Oct 2008
By Bill Lumbergh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All That Remains are a band known for being a metalcore band with guitar work that excels what the genre would usually offer. They also succeeded in not being too monotone throughout each release. With "The Fall of Ideals", the band were able to experiment and succeed, despite a few setbacks (mostly vocals). "Overcome" shows that the band definitely don't write the same album multiple times, but it is also the band's weakest work to date.

The instrumental work is still great, with some amazing solos. This alone doesn't prevent it from being a mixed bag. "Before The Damned" is a promising start, with some Testament-style vocals performed by Phil Labonte. However, by "Two Weeks", things start to dwindle with the use of flat clean vocal work that just ruins the mood. It's not terrible, but if you're familiar with albums like This Darkened Heart and even The Fall of Ideals, it pales in comparison.

The production also doesn't have that certain edge to it, mostly because instead of recruiting Adam Dutkiewicz, they recruit Jason Suecof. The feel seems to be less of a heavy metal style that the group had before, and it seems more catchy and mainstream oriented. This will definitely disappoint fans of the group's previous works.

"Overcome" is not a bad record, but it's not that good either. The musicianship is still there, but the overall feel that the band had before seems to have vanished. Approach with caution.

Solid album 10 Jan 2009
By T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many people had a fear after "The Fall of Ideals" that this band would not be able to top that record. Although this is still a solid outing by All That Remains, I agree with the statement that it couldn't out due its predecessor. They seemed to have gone into the dreaded wanting to be mainstream sound to gain more attention. Although it isn't a bad thing to do that, I don't feel like this is the album to get them more attention. There aren't enough strong tracks on this one as there were on "The Fall of Ideals". "Two Weeks" is one of their best songs written in my opinion. It is the first song where singer Phil Labonte sings from beginning to end with no screaming. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it either because this song shows that he has the voice to be able to sing beautifully and not be known as a screamer. The chorus is one of those that will get stuck in your head and you won't care if you can't get it out of your head. The opener "Before the Damned" has a very heavy scream from Phil and kicks into a poppy catchy chorus that almost sounded a little emoish but it will grow on you and after giving it a couple listens it won't sound emo, especially considering this band is far from emo. Another stand out in terms of Phil's melodic voice is "Forever In Your Hands". It has a mixture of singing and screaming in the verses and has another one of those memorable melodic choruses. The album's heaviest track is without question "Relinquish". This track may leave people thinking where was this sound in the rest of the record? Very strong song, but there isn't enough of it in the record. The closer is an interesting one being a cover of Nevermore's "Believe In Nothing". I was surprised to see it but wasn't really that disappointed with the outcome of the cover. It sounds almost exact to the original but also serves as a stepping stone for Phil's singing. Solid album but comes nowhere near "The Fall of Ideals".
