White Bear Lake, Minnesota, United States (2004 – present)

After the Burial is an American band from White Bear Lake, Minnesota, United States formed in 2004.

Minnesota’s After The Burial broke into the scene in 2004, bringing with them their own style of aggressive hardcore metal. With punishing rhythmic attacks and soaring duels, guitarists Trent Hafdahl and Justin Lowe’s approach on heavy metal shredding has been spreading throughout the underground metal scene like wildfire. Having completed tours with heavy hitters such as Disturbed, Killswitch Engage, Necrophagist, and Hatebreed, their genre transcending style of metal has captured the ears of heavy metal, hardcore, and death metal fans alike. With the release of their album “Rareform”, which showcases their talented use of 7 and 8-string guitars, they have solidified themselves as pioneers of the instrument.

The group has recorded four full-length albums, Forging a Future Self (2006), which was self produced, Rareform (2008), and Rareform Re-Issue (2009), a remastered, re-recorded copy of the original Rareform and In Dreams (2010).

Guitarist and founding member Justin Lowe officially left the band with a statement on June 24, 2015 citing a massive paranoia over his entire life believing that After the Burial, their record label (Sumerian Records) and most people in his life were out to ruin him. After the Burial responded to Lowe’s open letter the following day confirming he was under severe mental distress and requested their fans to support Lowe during his time of recovery. Lowe was under care with his family at the time.

    If there's anything that comes out of Justin Lowe's passing, its the reminder that if you know of someone who's struggling with mental issues/problems, never ignore the signs. [2] I can't believe he's dead, I hope he found peace in his last moments at least. RIP.....

Help that someone out, rather its you or a professional, because that one person is the difference between getting better and self harm. Wherever Justin is now, I just hope he's in a better place.

    Probably the most motivating music for me. I missed all opportunities to see you guys live and I'm shattered. Rest in peace, Justin.
