This is the original photo Impending Doom put on one of their new T-shirts ➽ merchnow.com/catalogs/impending-doom

It was taken in the so-called "Bone Church" in Sedlec in the Czech Republic, just one hour outside of Prague ➽ youtu.be/fPxQoRVUU2U

"The Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the Church of Bones, is one of the most unusual chapels you will ever see. If you think that you saw everything in your life, think again!

...

The Sedlec Ossuary is nothing spectacular on the outside. It is a small chapel located in Sedlec, in the suburbs of Kutna Hora, in the Czech Republic. You would think that it is just an average old medieval gothic church.

As you enter the Sedlec Ossuary though, you will soon realize why it is one of the most amazing and unique churches in the world. The Sedlec Ossuary is artistically decorated by more than 40.000 human skeletons. Thus it is also known as the Church of Bones or as the Bone Church.

One of the most fascinating artistic works inside the Sedlec Ossuary is the big chandelier of bones that lies in the center of the Church of Bones. The immense chandelier contains at least one of every human bone.

Another impressive artwork is the coat of arms of the Schwarzenberg family that is also made of human bones. While there are other macabre places to visit in Europe like the Paris Catacombe, the Sedlec Ossuary is really unique in nature.

You may wonder how all these bones ended up being craved in a small chapel located in the Czech Republic. It all goes back to 1278 when the King of Bohemia sent the abbot of the Sedlec Cistercian Monastery to Jerusalem.

When the abbot came back he brought with himself a jar of soil from the Golgotha, that was known as the “Holy Soil”. Soon people from all over the places desired to be buried in Sedlec, thus the cemetery there had to be expanded.

In the 15th century a Gothic church was built near the cemetery and its basement was used as an ossuary. The bones stayed there for centuries till 1870 when a woodcarver named Frantisek Rint was appointed to place the bones in order. The result was impressively shocking. [...]

The Sedlec Ossuary may seem a macabre place, but while visiting it, you will most likely not find it to be scary, but peaceful.

Those 40.000 dead people wished to be buried in a holy place, that is why they went to Sedlec in the first place, and now their bones are right in the middle of the chapel."

Good interview with August Burns Red from March 16, 2018.

At 16:10 minutes in, vocalist Jacob Luhrs talks about the fact that in ABR only him and drummer Matt Greiner consider themselves to be Christians.

● NEW INTERVIEW IS ONLINE NOW ●

In Munich, supporting Heaven Shall Burn's "The Final March" tour, we spoke to Brent and Jacob of "August Burns Red" before their... grand gig.
Brent (Jake) and Jake reveal the hype about JB´s new running gag that has gone viral, where just everybody - yes, you too - is Jake! Also, they speak about where the band hasn't played yet, but would want to someday (even some hard-to-get-there-places. Another topic we chat about is, how they've managed to keep their band setting unchanged since 2006 and in what ways a band is pretty relatable to a marriage, just without the sex! Furthermore, we talk about the circumstance, that August Burns Red tours with bands, whose lyrics are known to be at least quite critical about religion of any kind. As a Christian, Jake explains us his point of view on that and on the irritation of some fans. Of course, over time, the personal lives of the band members have changed by getting married and having children. Brent and Jake give us an insight on how this affects their career and how they cope with their private and tour life altogether. After being nominated for the Grammy Award, August Burns Red want to reach even bigger things in the future - so watch the video, to see what's still on their bucket list!

Sleeping Giant - PreachCore Lives!

Sleeping Giant... Up from the underground... We leave behind a legacy of praise..... Kingdom over everything...

I can still feel the rain, thinking back over these last years, reminded again You’re the only joy in this world of pain... (Pain!) Let Your word run wild and our hearts be filled with Your fire and reign and recognition of one true name... (Name!) Let the freedom come and the truth be seen... My prayer is that all may know what Yo...u truly meant to me...

Up from the underground... We leave behind a legacy of praise... Don't perform for the crowd, but reform for the crown... Sleeping Giant...

Kingdom over everything...

You'll have the words of life... You'll see the fear in their eyes... But don't be intimidated... The darkness in them is just afraid of the light... (Light!)

Let Your word run wild and all hearts be filled with Your fire and reign and recognition of one true name... (Name!) Let the freedom come and the truth be seen... My prayer is that all may know what You truly meant to me...

Christ my strength, my song... Know my life is Yours, til we meet again... I will worship for an audience of ONE... for an audience of ONE... We leave behind a legacy of praise...

As I Lay Dying Official

Words cannot begin to express how deeply sorry I am for the hurt that I have caused. There is no defense for what I did, and I look back on the person I became... with as much disdain as many of you likely do.

First, I apologize to my former wife and remarkable children for my appalling actions. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t wish I could undo the damage I caused, and out of respect for their wishes I will not discuss anything else about them (now or in the future). I also ask anyone reading this to promote healing for them by respecting their privacy and defending them from any negativity or anger which should be directed towards me. I was the sole offender and the only one to blame for everything that happened.

To my family, I apologize for the trauma you faced and may still feel. This is an ongoing sentence many of you serve because of me. I am so sorry to my friends who were betrayed by everything I hid from them and all the hardships I caused people who used to work with me. Band mates, road crew, managers, attorneys, agents, label people, and more all had to suffer through many unexpected changes because of my actions. While they were dealing with the aftermath of my arrest, I responded toward many of them with bitterness that I should have directed toward myself. I know that I can’t undo the animosity I brought their way, but I hope to mend what I can now as time goes on.

To the people who looked up to me as an artist, I let you down in so many ways. I tried to show my best side to the public, while feeding an ugly growing monster behind closed doors. I wrote lyrics about the person I wanted to be rather than the person that I was. I was living a life that lacked empathy and viewed everything through a self-motivated lens.

I cannot say for certain what life looks like going forward as so much is different now and I’m still learning. Music always has and always will be a part of me, and has helped me get through the darkest parts of my journey. However, this apology is not a part of promoting anything. Rumors circulate, and that’s something I’ve learned to accept, but this apology is just that, an apology to everyone around me.

I’ve remained silent to the public since expressing remorse at my sentencing because time seemed like the best way to promote healing. Today marks the first opportunity to freely apologize without any motivation to gain favor from the courts, as I have now completed the entirety of my legal sentence (including the completion of all parole/probation requirements). Let it be clear that no amount of time served can right my wrongs. I do not feel deserving of a second chance and am not asking for anyone’s trust. The way many people feel about me makes sense, and only time will tell if my future actions line up with my remorse, something I pray for every day. In the last five years, the ripple effect of all my actions has extended further than a written statement can address. Thus, I will continue to apologize in both words and actions moving forward.

Thank you for reading,
Tim
