Metal Monday: It Lies Within Shedding Their Chrysalis

2012 is looking to be a pretty good year for the guys in It Lies Within. Having signed to Luxor Recordings late in 2011 and playing a lot of big shows in the midwest, they are on track to continue this touring trend. This summer they’ll be releasing Chrysalis, which will be their first release with the new label. And in terms of OurStage success, It Lies Within have also been doing consistently well in the metal and hard rock videos channels this year.

Musically comprised of catchy hooks, raucous breakdowns, and meaty riffs, It Lies Within make for a really fun listen. The first single from Chrysalis (“Home Is Where The Heart Is”) is a perfect summation of the sort of things It Lies Within bring in full force. They’ve played shows with bands like All That Remains, We Came As Romans, Times of Grace, War of Ages, Carnifex, Oceano, Within the Ruins, As They Sleep, Chiodos and Asking Alexandriaā€¯they’re a great fit with all of these bands, too. It’s time to hop aboard the bandwagon now and enjoy the sweet sounds of their metalcore music. Check out the video for “Home Is Where The Heart Is” below, then go buy some merch and/or the new album!
