Top 20 Songs: Week of February 3-9, 2013

Mary Ouellette, Volbeat ‘s ‘Heaven Nor Hell’ had a brief two-week stay at No. 1, but the band is giving up the top spot on this week’s Loudwire Top 20 Countdown to All That Remain ‘s steadily climbing single, ‘Stand Up.’ After hovering in the Top 5 for the last few weeks, the track finally reached the apex of the countdown, where it hopes to remain for a little while. Rounding out the Top 5 this week are Deftones ‘ ‘Tempest,’ which climbs a notch from No. 4 to No. 3; former No. 1 Avenged Sevenfold , whose ‘Carry On’ flip flops with Deftones to fall back from No. 3 to No 4; and Alice in Chains , who crack the Top 5 at No. 5 with ‘Hollow.’ There was some major movement in this week’s Top 20 Countdown. The biggest riser of the week was Halestorm ‘s ‘Freak Like Me,’ which leapt up from No. 13 to No. 9. Meanwhile, Chevelle ‘s ‘Same Old Trip’ took a fairly big tumble, dropping eight notches from No. 5 to No. 13 this week. As for new songs, Hollywood Undead liven things up with their latest single ‘We Are,’ which jumps into the countdown at No. 18. In the process of making their debut, the track knocked out former chart-topper ‘Absolute Zero’ from Stone Sour .

Top 20 Songs: Week of January 27-February 2, 2013

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire / Mary Ouellette, Danish rockers Volbeat are holding onto the top spot for a second week in a row on this week’s Loudwire Radio Top 20 Countdown.

Former No. 1 track ‘Carry On’ from  Avenged Sevenfold slips back another spot this week to No. 3, meanwhile Deftones and Chevelle traded places this week with Deftones’ ‘Tempest’ inching forward to No. 4, while Chevelle’s ‘Same Old Trip’ drops to No. 5. There could be some shakeup next week in the Top 5 as Alice in Chains made the biggest jump of the week, moving four big notches from No. 10 to No. 6 with ‘Hollow,’ suggesting a trajectory that could place it at or near the top of the chart fairly soon. This Loudwire Radio Top 20 Countdown’s biggest dropper is former No. 1 song ‘Enemies’ from Shinedown . The track takes a tumble from No. 9 to No. 12 this week. The countdown also features the arrival of one new song — Green Day ‘s ‘X-Kid’ which ended the run of Slash ‘s ‘Standing in the Sun’ in the Top 20. It slides in at No. 19.

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Says Homophobic Slur Is ‘Just a Word’

Mary Ouellette, Late last year, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte raised a few eyebrows when using the word “f–got” while talking about a song competition between his band and Black Veil Brides. At the time, he was referencing a photo split that featured himself and the glammed out singer of Black Veil Brides , Andy Biersack. The vocalist later clarified his comments and with some distance now between the remarks, he’s commented further on the outrage over his usage of the term. In a recent issue of Revolver (excerpted by ), Labonte says, “I don’t worry what people think about me. I’ll call everyone in my band a f–got and some people who read that get really butt-hurt. I just don’t know why. What happened to ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me’? I don’t advocate hurting someone’s feelings because of their sexual orientation, but at the same time, if it really offends you when someone says ‘f–got,’ you need to man up. It’s just a word.” At the time of the incident and pending backlash, Labonte criticized the metal media for latching onto one aspect and not telling the whole story, like his vocal support of gay rights. He adds in the new interview, “Passing laws against gay marriage is the most ridiculous thing that straight people do. That’s offensive to me, because they’re just people, and it certainly isn’t my right to go ahead and tell people how they can live or cannot live.” For all the hubbub over that incident last year, All That Remains have also done a lot of good. Just last month the band continued their support of the military by visiting a Marine Corps base around the Thanksgiving holiday. The group recently issued the video for ‘ Stand Up ‘ from their newly released ‘ A War You Cannot Win ‘ album.

All That Remains, ‘A War You Cannot Win’ – Album Review

Razor & Tie All That Remains  are a polarizing band. Frontman Phil Labonte isn’t afraid to speak his mind , and as the group’s success has increased, so have the haters. ‘A War You Cannot Win’ will have those critics complaining louder than ever, but the album should draw legions of new fans that will embrace ATR’s style. That style combines elements of metalcore, mainstream metal and hard rock, and ‘A War You Cannot Win’ is probably the band’s most melodic effort. That doesn’t mean there aren’t songs that pack a wallop. The proceedings start aggressively with ‘Down Thru The Ages,’ with Labonte using harsh vocals and a few higher-pitched screams. Clean vocals make their appearance as well, along with a searing guitar solo. Speaking of guitars, the dual attack of Oli Herbert and Mike Martin is impressive throughout. From darker riffs on songs like ‘A Call To All Non-Believers’ to shredding eighties styles solos, they are on point. When it comes to radio-friendly accessible songs, ‘A War You Cannot Win’ has a few. If you listen to rock radio, you have heard ‘Stand Up,’ an extremely catchy track. ‘Asking Too Much’ is another future radio hit, very melodic and memorable. The power ballad ‘What If I Was Nothing’ has a Five Finger Death Punch vibe and is an obvious choice for a single. Those that buy the album after only hearing the radio singles might be turned off by the harsh vocals, but the balance of those styles is what makes All That Remains who they are. The music might be formulaic, but they execute that formula so well it’s hard to hold it against them. By the last third of the album, there are a few misses. Jason Costa’s drum work gets some nice exposure on ‘Sing for Liberty,’ yet the track itself doesn’t stand out among the rest. They rebound with ‘Not Fading,’ but some momentum is lost with the nondescript acoustic instrumental ‘Calculating Loneliness.’ The tempo cranks back up along with a breakdown or two for the title track, which closes out the album. ‘A War You Cannot Win’ is packed with catchy singles and a polished production from Killswitch Engage’s Adam D. that will appeal to the mainstream. There’s also an ample supply of aggression and heaviness to satisfy metalheads. The combination should make it a very successful album.
