From opening to closing, there is something unique about this album. August Burns Red’s latest full-length release, Rescue & Restore, shows you the experience and knowledge the band has gained from all their years with this fifth album. The Manheim, PA band’s 11-track powerhouse solidifies their claim as one of the premier bands – not only in the genre – but in the whole industry as well.
Rescue & Restore starts off fast, keeps the momentum going, and it continues to pick up throughout the album – there is no slowing down. There is nothing out of place – just solid, technical guitars and light speed drums, constantly pushing the screams of front man Jake Luhrs. With songs like the opening track “Provision,” and the sure-to-be crowd-pleasing “Beauty in Tragedy,” their new material not only sounds great on record, but it will be sure to keep audiences ignited during their never-ending touring schedule.
Each song is fresh, new and full of heart-pounding music and racing lyrics. There is nothing is cookie-cutter about this album; it’s produced, engineered and beautifully put together. Open the gates, because August Burns Red has returned home to their throne at the top of the industry.
