Band of the day 🤘🏿 🤘🏿 🤘🏿
All That Remains 💀
All That Remains is an American heavy metal band from Springfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1998.
All That Remains has been described as metalcore, melodic death metal, and heavy metal. All That Remains' music mixes "crushing" riffs, dual guitar harmonies, double bass drum patterns, and breakdowns that are prevalent in the metalcore genre. Vocally, the band combines singing, screaming, and growls. Phil Labonte's lyrics focus on themes such as relationships, personal struggles, society, and hope.
In an interview with Mike Martin stated about their musical style:
“We've always wanted to have a lot of different kind of metal songs whether it was a ballad, fast song, or death metal song. We've always been capable of doing every kind of song. We've always just done it no matter what the repercussions were because you know you are always going to get backlash. If you are going to write a record that is really heavy, and on the next record you have a ballad, people are going to get pissed. We never really look too much into it, we just wanted to do it, and so we pretty much did it."
Oli Herbert 🙏 has stated his biggest influence on guitar is Andy LaRocque of King Diamond. Also, he's mentioned he draws a lot of influence from George Lynch, John Sykes, and Randy Rhoads.
All That Remains confirmed the death of their guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert early Oct. 17. The musician's personal publicist has now released a statement revealing further details, including that he died "unexpectedly as a result of an accident which occurred on the property of his home." 😭
Herbert had played in All That Remains since 1998, performing on all nine of the band's studio albums. He and vocalist Phil Labonte were the group's remaining original members. Herbert was known for his contributions to metal and beyond for his aggressive-yet-refined style of playing.

It's a Saturday and a time for another Nightwish-experience.
The band plays tonight in Krakow's @tauronarenakrakow and there will be LOTS of people inside to witness some old school Nightwish compositions and obviously a fiery show. Actually, this Krakow-concert might be the biggest indoor arena show ever for Nightwish. That should tell you something.
This pic is also old-school. Here you can see that great friends Emppu Vuorinen and Jani Liimatainen were some good times during Nightwish / Sonata Arctica / Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus European tour some years ago.
