COMBAT Records Announces the Release of "It's Time To Decide," the New Full-Length Album From At All Cost In-Stores September 20, 2005

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2005 -- COMBAT Records announces the release of the first full-length album by At All Cost titled "It's Time To Decide," on September 20th. The recently resurrected COMBAT Records is a joint venture between KOCH Records and Entertainment Services Unlimited.

Austin, TX-based At All Cost (Trey Ramirez, Andrew Collins, Grant Anderson, Bobby Andrews and Michael Theobald) previously released an EP on Fiddler Records. Alternative Press gave the EP 4 out of 5 stars, and noted, "... it's the little things that set AAC apart."

The band recorded "It's Time To Decide" with Rory Phillips (Recover, The Rise, The Hire), and the album fuses the intensity of metal, the energy of rock and roll, the ideology of a progressive intellectual movement and the spirit of experimentation, to push the boundaries of the saturated metal/hardcore genre. The band brings dance moves back to hardcore -- literally. While other bands are triggered by the blast beats and breakdowns, At All Cost bring classical guitars, violins, vocoder and synth effects to one of the most danceable records this genre will encounter. With vocals that ad an entirely new layer to what otherwise will be dubbed as a 'raging mix of metal, hardcore and rock,' At All Cost is the missing link between the 'brutal' and the 'beautiful.'

The track listing is:

1.   Death To Distraction
2.   The Formula
3.   Human Now
4.   Polish The Nightmare
5.   Right Now
6.   Fabricated
7.   Consider That
8.   The Irony
9.   This Pen
10.  The Hook
11.  It Burns Black
12.  The Return
13.  What Is Left To Inspire?
