Tim Lambesis is an American musician and songwriter who is best known as the lead vocalist and founder of the metal band, As I Lay Dying. Lambesis’ breakthrough came in 2000 when he formed As I Lay Dying. The band quickly gained popularity with their unique sound, which combined metalcore, thrash metal, and hardcore punk. Lambesis’ powerful vocals and intense stage presence played a significant role in the band’s success. As I Lay Dying went on to release numerous critically acclaimed albums, including “Shadows Are Security” and “An Ocean Between Us.”
One of the milestones in Lambesis’ career was his collaboration with Austrian death metal band, Belphegor. He provided guest vocals on the track “Destroyer Hekate” on their 2006 album, “Pestapokalypse VI.” He has also worked with other influential metal bands such as Austrian Death Machine, Society’s Finest, and Sworn Enemy.
Unfortunately, Lambesis’ career has been marred by controversy. In 2013, he was arrested and charged with hiring a hitman to murder his estranged wife. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to six years in prison. Following his release in 2016, Lambesis returned to the music scene and resumed his career with As I Lay Dying.
