Absolutely Awesome!! LOG's most recent album and they've lost nothing.
Tight, punishing riffs, brutal drumming and vocals that conjure images of hell itself.
Definitely more polished and, arguably, more accessible than their previous album, As The Palaces Burn but still awesome.
Laid to Rest has to be THE album-opener of the decade and the rest just get better.
The album thunders along at a break neck pace with highlights such as the punishing, Hourglass. The Faded Line with it's almost Maiden-esque, galloping riff. The soul destroying Blood of the Scribe.
The title track, Ashes Of The Wake has to be one of the greatest, politically fuelled instrumentals in modern metal.
I saw LOG at Download 2005 and was blown away. One of the few modern bands around that are better live than recorded.
LOG are not for the faint hearted but as an introduction to a style of technical, blistering thrash/metal/hardcore like no other then Ashes Of The Wake is ideal.
Be warned though, if you're expecting the clean, vocals found with Killswitch Engage and the likes, then think twice before parting with your cash.
LOG is balls-in-a-vice, true metal in every sense.
If you only buy one metal album this year, make it this.

Let me start off by saying that this is the best non-slayer record I've ever heard. Lamb of God are the future of metal and this record shows it. Lamb of God have definitely not softened up like most bands do on their 2nd or 3rd album. This album delivers brutality at a very technical level. It's full of insane drumming and hardcore vocals. Although Lamb of God have stayed true to their original formula this album is a major progression from their previous release "As the Palaces Burn" which was also an excellent album. If you like Slayer, Pantera, Machine Head and true thrash metal than buy this.

Come now, let us all genuflect before Lamb of God, for to them we owe our metal souls. In the fat rat-infested, decrepit tenement called Heavy Rock Manor, the Virginia-based shock unit is one of the few groups striving to keep the power on and the hallways clear of gluttonous rap-rock/post-grunge False Marias. Yes, yes, Ashes of the Wake arrives via Epic Records, but this only will inflame the ire of the ignorant. For the rest of us, Lamb's ascendance to the majors melts a little more of the crap rock golden calf. Where previous efforts were fully automatic hot LZs, they were also slightly muddled for the very same reason. They fired in all directions. With Ashes, producer Machine has sharpened the corner of every riff and tightened the turns on classicist metal gallops. Best of all, Randy Blythe's furious yawp is more focused. Rather than simply being another scary voice shouter, Blythe becomes Lamb of God's threshold of pain conduit. "Laid to Rest" begins with his measured statements -- "If there was a single day I could live...I'd trade all the others away" -- flanked by the at-odds guitars of Willie Adler and Mark Morton. But then Blythe unleashes his demonic throat, and the guitars leap over and across one another like basilisks on a prowl for ibex kids. "Hourglass" offers more, its interlocking rhythms and breakdowns harking to the dark lands of Scandinavia. But it doesn't go all the way there. This is American metal, after all, meaning that, in the tradition of Pantera and Poison the Well, large-form grandiosity is sacrificed in favor of a muscularity derived from hardcore and hard living. The aptly named "Omerta" begins with that code's reading. "Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.Read more ›

Imagine a bank robbery, and during this bank robbery many people die, there are many loud noises, and the bank robbers get away with everything. I don't know how but Lamb Of God's new album is the musical equivalent of this situation. This album is the kind of album you'd have stuck in your head while murdering, it's that evil. With swirling riffage, restlessly pounding drums and Randall Blythe's vocal constantly changing form spooky whispers, to enraging howls. This album is quite excesable for a thrash metal album it has 5 minute instrumentals ("Ashes Of The Wake"), it has the machine gun double foot pedalling ("The Faded Line") and it has the instantly cool lyrics of "See who gives a f**k" from the lead single ("Laid To Rest") if you have unwanted aggression and you wanted a album to share such emotions buy this now, if you want a album about love, and peace....look else where

Ashes Of The Wake is Lamb Of God's Third full length studio album. The album is decidedly more polished and cleaner than its predecessors, with producer Machine (that's his name) taking the helm for the first time and really driving for clarity in a way previously unheard of on a Lamb Of God album.

Apart from the new cleaner production, the first thing you'll notice about Ashes is the songwriting, Lamb Of God hit onto the perfect formula for writing catchy singles and crowd pleasing songs that instantly feel familiar, that have hooks and that most importantly are highly memorable.

While the earlier material was awesome, it was harder to familiarize yourself with and songs would take a great many listens before you understood how they worked or remembered what came next, with Ashes everything just clicks.
The combination of a less brash production and more accessible songs may be unpalatable to some fans of the earlier output but its hard to deny the sheer quality of music.

The musicianship is of the highest standard, head and shoulders above many of their peers both technically and creatively each Lamb of God member seems handpicked because he was the best in his field.

The album is chocked full of career highlights from the excellent politically fused `One Gun,' or the introspective `What I've Become,' to singles `Now You've Got Something To Die For,' and `Laid To Rest,' nothing is ever short of excellent.

Chris Poland once again returns with guest guitar contributions are once again welcome and don't feel out of place whatsoever on the fantastic instrumental title track.

Ashes Of The Wake may have a more commercial production but its hard to complain when the music is this good.
