August Burns Red/Blessthefall/Defeater/Beartooth

The guys in the Christian metalcore band August Burns Red were the catalyst that turned Lancaster, Penn., into a hardcore hotbed. "We were extremely active in the local hardcore and metal scene," says singer JB Brubaker. "We used to book shows at the local American Legion hall. We would throw our band onto to the opener slot." Whatever money the band earned, it put toward buying gear for its group. The scene isn't as strong now, but August Burns has taken on a life of its own and became a national act years ago. The band had a big breakthrough with 2007's Messengers and hasn't looked back. Its new album, Rescue & Restore, features complex time changes, string arrangements and intricate guitar solos. It's a true tour de force that pushes metalcore boundaries. Even if the band has gone in a new musical direction, it hasn't alienated its longtime fans."We like trying to incorporate unorthodox elements into our music," Brubaker says. "This album has gotten the best response since Messengers. I'm happy people have been happy with it since we kind of went out on a limb." (Niesel)
