15 years ago, Lamb of God began their ascent to the forefront of modern heavy metal. A self-described “pure American metal” quintet from Richmond, VA, took deliberate steps, paid the dues and withstood the knocks as an underground, un-commercial metal act. Beloved by a rabid, grass roots cult of underground thrash fanatics thanks to brutal and technical albums like 2000’s New ... Read more in Amazon's Lamb of God Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a bad american band! 14 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
well, what can i say other than if you like unbelievably heavy music buy this album. I can't really describe it in any other way than sheer chaos.This singer has got the most lethal voice and the riffs are of such high quality that you can't get enough, and they just keep coming back.There is definately a heavy European (death)metal influence so if you like your music to scare several shades of shit out of you, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best metal ever 26 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No band I have ever listened to before or after this album has been able to convey the same power or anger as these group of Americans. Their new album, the ashes of the wake, although amazing also, doesnt quite live up to the power of this work. That said it would be a difficult task and i cannot put into words the incredible feelings that the guitars, drums and vocals put together make. Anger has never been so intense. Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is cool 15 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album has definitely got some of the greatest songs your ever likely to hear. If your into death/black metal that is. Of course, its not perfect but hey you can't have everything. take for example track 6 - Terror and hubris in the house of Frank Pollard. This song starts off with the most killer riff I have ever heard but then the whole song is ruined by the whiney voice of Steve Austin who lent his voice to this track. However, D Randall Blythe's vocals are absolutely astonishing to say the least. The highlight tracks of the album are: Black Label, In the Absence of the Sacred, Letter to the Unborn, the Black Dahlia, the Subtle arts of murder and persuasion and O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E (most of the album!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Woaaarrrrrrrrr 19 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album should be bought for this song title alone Terror and Hubris in the House of Frank Polard. I just love that title, always brings a smile to my face. This is the New Wave of Thrash from the US of A. It is also produced by an absolute phycho that goes by the name Steve Austin. Not the wrestler, but front nut, from mentalists Today Is the Day. But dont fear this album is more subtle than them, but will still kick your ass and leave your ears ringing. The production is 1st class, it sounds absolutely incredable listen to the drums, i aint heard anything like em, and the guitars are the sonic equivalent of razor blades. BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true master peace!! 24 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lamb of God aren't well heard of! i learnt very quickly as i bought this album the true amazing grasp, especially the drums by chis adler. i am at true praise for this album. it's ability to speak agrression is far more adventurous than modern day metal goes, and it's ability by each memeber, through vocals and guitars are also at my fullest praise. If ur looking for aggression, speed and amazing musicians, lamb of god new american gospel is your essential cd! lamb of god will b renound, in time just as slayer, pantera and sepultura if they stick of there path and evolve! watch out!

4.0 out of 5 stars A sign of things to come... 8 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
No Metal fan would deny that Lamb Of God are now one of the biggest Heavy Metal bands in the world. Dripping with groove this album is a huge sign of things to come. A sign of Lamb Of Gods massive future and the one of the key albums in kicking off the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal that has steamrolled through Heavy Metal at this turn of this century.

A great word to describe this album is 'raw.' The distorted grooves and blasts hark back to a wide range of influences from Pantera to Napalm Death. The guitars and drum combos are pummeling, and this album introduces the world to one of this Centuries finest drummers, Chris Adler. The vocals are a heavy distored almost Eyehategod esque shreik, A lot different to the vocals of Randy Blythe we know today. Classics like 'Black Label' explode from your speakers with unbelieveable agression, and it's an ode to this albums quality that songs like 'Black Label' are still a staple part of Lamb Of God's set list.

This isn't the essential Lamb Of God album, most would be recommended to start with 'As The Palaces Burn' and 'Ashes Of The Wake' but this is tru;y a great album and where you really get down to The Pure American Metal roots of Lamb Of God. As raw and groovy as Burn The Priest, with twice the ability and twice the technical proesque.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three and a half 9 Mar 2010
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
New American Gospel is Lamb of God's first full length studio album. The album is undeniably important to the Lamb of God story, with the band still playing material from it to this day. For the new fan however, this album may come as a bit of a shock.
If you have ever heard Soul of A New Machine, In This Present Darkness or Call of the Mastodon you will know what to expect, a raw and noisy release of material that in some ways resembles the sound the band would become famous for and in some ways most certainly does not.
The production is very raw with a clicky and unpleasant bass drum sound, thin tinny guitars and Randy's vocals aren't layered in the way they would be on all of their later albums.
Randy's vocals indeed are not only produced differently, but are different in of themselves. The low barking growl that fans expect from Randy is absent and this album has full on death growls or high pitched screams instead, not necessarily a bad thing but there is little resemblance to the style he uses so well nowadays.
Listeners will be interested to hear the various influences that no longer feature in the band's style, the stray Grindcore riffs or Black Metal moments that fit so well here but would be out of place on Sacrament or Wrath.
Differences in style aside there is a lot of high quality metal music on the album, `Pariah,' `Terror and Hubris in the House of Frank Pollard,' and perennial show closer `Black Label,' all stand the test of time and will impress listeners.
New American Gospel belongs in every Lamb of God collection, both for its historical value and for its own musical value.
This edition comes with Bonus track `Nippon,' some (even rawer) demo versions of album tracks and a very interesting set of linear notes describing how they slept in vans outside the studio, wrote the lyrics minutes before singing them and the pressure they band were under to get everything done in time.
