Tim Lambesis has broken his silence for the first time since he was released from prison after serving less than half of his six-year sentence for conspiracy to commit murder. Lambesis has released the following statement:

Words cannot begin to express how deeply sorry I am for the hurt that I have caused. There is no defense for what I did, and I look back on the person I became with as much disdain as many of you likely do.

First, I apologize to my former wife and remarkable children for my appalling actions. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t wish I could undo the damage I caused, and out of respect for their wishes I will not discuss anything else about them (now or in the future). I also ask anyone reading this to promote healing for them by respecting their privacy and defending them from any negativity or anger which should be directed towards me. I was the sole offender and the only one to blame for everything that happened. Continue reading »

According to Alternative Press, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has been released from prison after serving less than half of his six-year sentence for conspiracy to commit murder.

Lambesis was discharged from a California detention facility on December 17, 2016 and was transferred to the Division of Adult Parole Operations.

“Everybody else is suffering. His wife is living in fear. His children are living in fear.”

Back in May 2014, Lambesis was given a six-year prison sentence without probation for his role in the murder-for-hire plot.

The now-36-year-old musician was arrested in May 2013 after handing the “hitman” — really an undercover police officer — $1,000 in cash, along with his wife’s address and gate security codes. Continue reading »

la ventura_2015The Dutch melodic metal band La-Ventura has just released their new music video ‘As I Lay Dying’ (Not to be confused with the band AILD). The track is taken from their EP “2.0” which has been released on November 7th. The video can be seen below.

La-Ventura was founded in early 2007. With just one single out called ‘Trefoil’, it caught the eye of labels around the world, battling it out for an exclusive deal. The band released their first full length album “A New Beginning” in 2008 through Renaissance Records (USA), followed by an EP in 2010. Their second album called “White Crow” has seen the light of days in 2013 with an independent release for The Benelux. Recorded in a top studio (MII Studio, France) blending analogue with digital, the sound of the band improved immensely.  Continue reading »
