France’s As They Burn may not have quite been my favorite metalcore/deathcore band this year, but they definitely showcased potential on Will, Love, Life and had a little bit more to offer than your average genre act. The group has released a live music video for “Medicine 2.0” which you can check out below, and the group will head out on a European tour starting in the fall.

AS THEY BURN have premiered a new music video for the song “Medicine 2.0” from their album Will, Love, Life, which features the Parisian metalheads performing live to a sea of banging heads at Hellfest Open Air 2012 in Paris, France. The first track on the album, “Medicine 2.0” is classic AS THEY BURN with atmospheric melodies, groove-inspired riffs and aggressive vocals. Keyboardist, Bastien Jacquesson comments, “’Medicine 2.0’ is first time we used the classic verse/ chorus/ verse/ chorus/ bridge/ chorus song structure. The epic chorus keeps it from being simply another deathcore song.”

Watch the music video for “Medicine 2.0” here.

Catch AS THEY BURN as they journey across twenty-one cities throughout Europe for their headlining tour beginning September 5th in Pau, France. See a full listing of tour dates here. Order your copy of Will, Love, Life at or through iTunes.

“Songs like “Medicine 2.0” and “Origin” boasts resonant, undulating chords and djent drumming that’s so rattling, they could make your teeth fall out” – Outburn

“An exhilarating head rush of skull-splitting force and speed that unites the tech death brilliance of Meshuggah with Obituary’s classic carnage.” – Big Cheese

“Stunning and at times wonderful, the bounce of the rhythm and delivery of the electronics that are a subtle surprise have made even the harshest critic of this genre fall into disbelief. “ –
