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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lamb Of God - Resolution 23 Jan 2012
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Album From An Amazing Band! 18 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Resolution...simply brilliant!!! 27 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One word folks...... Metal!!!! 28 Jan 2012
By Agma
Format:Audio CD
Well after my sitting through this snarling beast of an album, another big fist in the air towards the american icons of metal is a guaranteed. I don't know quite where and how this band manages to delight with every new release but every-time they bring out a new album it clicks with me first time and becomes my new favorite album of that year. I don't know about everyone else but I found Wrath to be a superb unbeatable wall-breaker, especially as the slight deviation in direction with that album from "Sacrement" was a favorable and very enjoyable one. Let's get straight to the songs shall we..

Opener "Straight for the sun" is a surprising- patronage to all things doom and gloom, whilst "Desolution" is quite simply stunning, and fires out of the speakers from the word go with a sublime and thoughtful riff, other highlights include the highest water mark of the album and the inspired blast of "The undertow" which will undoubtedly at some point be a classic LOG live staple smasher. Some of the songs here show a deliverance in straight forward Lamb of god enterprises, but all of the frills and connection you expect to get from the past releases can still be found. Examples being:- Ghost walking, Guilty and the The number six; which hark back to times of old within "The ashes of the wake" and "As the palaces burn" in some truly unethical brutality and massiveness.

Having said all that however, there are still a few surprises to catch you off guard such as the interlude quietness of "Barbarosa," the riff crusher of "Cheated" or the fabulous but great new sense of melody found within "Insurrection." The album is as you would expect from L.O.

4.0 out of 5 stars Merciless continuation of 'Wrath' 30 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lamb of god must surely be considered one of the finest exponents of their genre. Since they first appeared, slashing and burning as Lamb of God (when they really first impacted upon the UK consciousness), they have remained remarkably consistent in the quality of their output although it is arguable that `Sacrament', with its toned-down aggression was rather less impressive than its full-on successor, the remarkable `Wrath'. It should come, therefore, as no surprise that with the release of `resolution' little has changed in the world of LOG and the new album represents a refined and road-aged continuation of the sonic assault found on `wrath'.

There are a few curveballs, however, and the opening track for `resolution', the grinding `straight for the sun' does a grand job of introducing LOG to the uninitiated as Black Sabbath-worshipping doom metallers. A slow, ground out, down-tuned bruiser, it has more in common with Heaven and Hell than `redneck' and it serves as a fine, if rather brief, entry to the record. A truly awe-inspiring rolling drum fill (courtesy of ace sticks-man Chris Adler) tells us that LOG are back with a vengeance as the track segues into `Desolation', a track that holds no surprises for LOG fans but which does a fine job as cementing their reputation as leaders of the pack. Randy Blythe is as commanding as ever, his vocals delivered with an intensity matched only by Phil Anselmo, whilst Mark Morton and Willie Adler prove to be as on the money as ever with their brutal riffs and occasional snatches of melodic soloing. `Ghost walking' opens with a cool acoustic riff that recalls Zakk Wylde's bruising fretwork before the main riff takes over and Randy proclaims with some venom "there is no-one left to save...".
