Biography

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

Product Description

CD Description

Lamb of God, the thinking man's metal band release their seventh studio album Resolution which promises to be something completely new from previous material. Written over the course of a couple of years the album boasts some of the most punk rock moments and some of the bluesiest moments of the band's recorded career to date. Like the band's previous release, this album was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur.

BBC Review

So far, the 21st century has been a period of diminishing returns in the metal world – but one band from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal has really stood out: Lamb of God. But while the Richmond, Virginia titans’ previous long-player, 2009’s Wrath, was as relentlessly bone-crushingly heavy as we’d come to expect, the scintillating invention and inspired riffs they’d become famous for across three major label releases wasn’t as pronounced. They still had ‘it’, but ‘it’ had been diluted somewhat.

Like its predecessor, Resolution finds its makers flicking the autopilot switch every so often; but as with any veteran band, expecting album after album of a dozen outstanding smashes is simply asking for too much. And with 14 tracks on this, their seventh studio album, expectations set for a truly singular experience were always going to be slightly disappointed. The thunderous, low-slung sludge of opener Straight for the Sun does little to dash hopes though, and the deliciously cascading riffs of Desolation comprise the backbone of a furious call-to-arms. So far, so Lamb of God – and while there’s some concern that Ghost Walking is rather too similar to Redneck, from 2006’s Sacrament LP (the opening riff appears to be carbon-copy), its weighty grooves, intricate riffs and Randy Blythe’s unwavering screams and growls kick in and settle any nerves. Woof. Business as usual.

It’s understandable how Lamb of God’s bludgeoning style and American imagery brings the muscle-bound jocks and chest-thumpers to the fore, but there’s so much more to the band than mindless brutality. As the album ends with the gothic, orchestral vibes of King Me, Blythe’s muttered words are enveloped in vast symphonies. It’s a characteristically towering finish – one that leaves the listener feeling empowered and satisfied regardless of any shortcomings elsewhere. It all adds up to a consolidating of Lamb of God’s position at the top of the heavy metal tree, rather than a marked progression to attract new fans. It’s not exploring new musical frontiers, but Resolution is an eminently listenable heavy metal album. At this stage of 2012, that’ll do.

Resolution is the Virginian Metal band Lamb Of God's seventh official Studio Album. It was released in 2012 and the production saw involvement from both Machine, who handled their Sacrament and Ashes Of The Wake albums as well Josh Wilbur who helmed 2009's Wrath album, consequently the whole record sounds amazing and tracks flow remarkably well together.

As you would expect from Lamb Of God themselves, there are a lot of explosive and loud tracks that are for the most part very heavy and very fast, with a lot of groove coming through into the overall sound and an impressive standard of musicianship from everyone involved.

If you enjoyed the band's previous two albums in particular, then Resolution is certain to keep you entertained through its fifty-six minute duration, even if the band do seem to suggest otherwise in interviews. Singer Randy Blythe's vocals are as savage as ever at times yet more varied than on the band's earliest works; Mark Morten's lead guitar sound is still fantastically musical where other players may have been tempted just to be noisy and of course the riffs and beats from the rest of the band give you exactly what you would want from a new Lamb Of God Album.

That is not to say that Resolution is just Lamb Of God by numbers however; kicking off with a big and doomy Sabbath inspired opener `Straight For The Sun' and ending with a track called `King Me' which features both female vocals and and orchestra and that also mixes in Trendkill era Pantera sounds with the normal Lamb Of God sound, you simply can't seriously accuse the band of lacking variety.

This is the first album by LOG I bought and I am so very happy I did! Such an awesome album and band!! Anyone who likes DECENT METAL then look no further, this rip-roaring, brutal, beast of an album will satisfy any real Metalhead, thats what I love about LOG is that they have stuck to their guns and remained true to their roots, its metal as it should be, none of those clean vocals! Just sheer, brutal metal at its finest! Cheers Lamb Of God, you guys keep getting better! 5 stars, Get it, Get it now!

this is Lamb of gods seventh studio album eighth if you include burn the priest album, Its good Its enjoyable and aggressive and lamb of gody, the good points are the vocals and the drums and the guitar riffs are awesome the songs are cool and the riffs are cool what is nicei s Randy actually sing sings in one of the songs alittle bit the song called Insurrection, its cool,
the down side is, the groovy ness of ashes of the wake seems to be missing its not quite as catchy as ashes of the wake and the a relenting agression of the first three albums seems to have been left out in favour of some cools riffs but riffs that are not ultimatley that catchy.

all in all though it is a pretty good effort but we need another as the palaces burn/ashes of the wake albums with awesome breakdowns with groovy leads over the top

This is quite possibly the best Lamb Of God album released to date - everything that is integral to the LOG sound is here in spades but the guys have thrown even more spanners in the works to add interest and depth to an already crushing sound! Album opener Straight For The Sun is straight out of the Black Sabbath handbook and is something a bit different for the guys, especially when compared with The Passing from previous album Wrath! The two standout tracks for me with regards to LOG adding something different to their sound are Insurrection and album closer King Me - the first of these features clean, sung vocals from Randy Blythe, and they add a totally different and unique colour to the tonal palette of the song - who knew Randy had such a great singing voice? The man never ceases to amaze me with his vocal talents! King Me is a total departure from anything the guys have done before - layered with an orchestra and an opera singer the song showcases yet another side to Lamb Of God that I never knew existed! I won't harp on about which tracks are better than others because they're all fantastic in their own right in my humble opinion! A special mention does go to Randy Blythe when he sings the chorus to Guilty - the ferocity with which he barks -'Bound by the chain of lies you've wrapped around you!' is terrifying - it really gets me riled up when I hear it, in a good way of course! As for the rest of the band, need I go into detail? Those familiar with LOG will already know that the riffs come hard and fast, complex yet easy to understand if you break them down, the bass doubles the riffs a lot of the time (which is no easy feat!) and Chris Adler's drumming is sublime as always! Those that are already familiar with LOG will already own this album, those that aren't, get this album now, you won't regret it! A breath of fresh air in a stagnant music scene, these guys never fail to impress and just get better and better!

There's is not a lot more left to say about this album that hasn't been said already.

For me this may well be Lamb of God's 'Master Of Puppets' or 'Reign In Blood', not that's to say Resolution is anything like those two classics in terms of music.

The whole album is so diverse whilst at the same time displaying the band's trademark sound.

Vocalist Randy Blythe is the real star here with a superhuman performance. In fact this is probably the first Lamb Of God album where Randy, John Campbell's Bass and Chris Adler's drumming stand out more than brother Chris Adler and Mark Morton's sublime guitar skills do. That's not to say the guitar duo disappoint, far from it!

This album will be the best of 2012...yes I know it's only January, but I can't see me not listening to it regularly for the rest of year at least or anyone else beating it.

Two words sum 'Resolution' up...Simply Brilliant!!!
