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

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential modern metal band 17 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Lamb of God have continued the upward trajectory plotted by their previous two albums and unleashed a possible genre classic. Ashes of the Wake has been highly acclaimed and rightly so, but this is better. Trust Me.
There are several areas of improvement, the most obvious being Randy Blythe's vocals. Still somewhere in between a traditional death grunt and the more currently popular higher pitched metalcore scream, there is now an element of melody in places that really suits the music. Aggression is still very much the order of the day however, this is a dark and powerful album and nothing reflects this more than the excellent vocal performance.
Musically, Sacrament is a lot faster than the last two records, and definitely more atmospheric. The fact they've managed to combine a sledgehammer heaviness with such layers of atmospheric darkness really makes the music standout. I was hooked after a couple of listens but there's so much going on that parts you haven't noticed will still be making appearances after 20 or even 30 listens.
The main reason for this of course is the guitar partnership of Mark Morton and Willie Adler. Not only do they seem to be limitless riff machines but their level of technical prowess is awesome. There is some truly mouth watering shredding on offer but it never becomes a self indulgent vanity session, LOG are far too astute for that. Instead, everything is kept within the boundaries of the songs and it's a winning formula because while it challenges you, it never confuses you.
Governing the whole package is the incomparable Chris Adler who for me, now sits atop the throne vacated by Dave Lombardo. He'll keep it simple when necessary, then hit you with an avalanche of superhuman skills that set him far apart from almost all his peers.

5.0 out of 5 stars best album yet 4 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sacrament is by far lamb of gods best album, they take their whole sound and style further then ever before. The guitar playing on this album is as expected excellent, Mark Morton and Willie Adler have to be two of metals best guitarists at the moment, always writing challenging riffs without going over the top into technical soulessness, they have also added a lot more guitar leads which is very welcome. Not to be outdone Chris Adler's drumming is even better than on previous albums and thats saying something. Lastly Randy Blythe has outdone himself on the vocals, without drastically changing the style he's gone from just death growl's to adding phil anselemo type growling, it's almost a sung note, but not quite. also the songs are far more catchy than before with a few more sing-a-long parts than on ashes of the wake.

If you like your Metal heavy buy this album

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year!!! 29 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you like 'Ashes of the Wake' or 'As the Palaces Burn' you'll love this... There are bound to be some people claiming that Lamb of God have sold out etc blah blah blah... but this is definately not the case. They have taken their unique sound a step further by adding some extra dynamics to the vocals which works excellently. LOG have also managed to experiment with their riffs. They've added a slighty more soulful sound to this album but have by no means compromised on their brutality, tightness or unique approach to song structure, they have even added a few solos in there to.

I've owned this album for litle over 1 week and I just can't stop listening to it. This is definatley the best album I have heard this year, buy this album. Listening to this album just makes me excited about seeing them on the Unholy Alliance tour later this year... (and also very thankful that nu-metal has died it's long overdue death!!!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Metal Band Produce a Good Metal Album 13 Aug 2007
By Donny
Format:Audio CD
Lamb of god have already had a lot of Pantera comparisons, I feel more for there punishing guitar and genuine inventiveness rather than an exact musical similarity, but the two things they do have in common (so far) is that they don't disappoint and they always let you know its them. I love this album it has everything I like about LoG; the insane guitar with one riff piled on top of another the growled lyrics with the unique standout moments the high clarity, intensely condensed drumming, its all great stuff. In short if you are a fan of any modern metal band (but especially the hardcore variety) its impossible to see how you can not like this album.

However I still prefer Ashes of the Wake and have to say this album doesn't sound as catchy or as memorable (inventive maybe but not catchy) I feel this is proven by the way that the first half of the album is loaded with what I would say are the better tracks, possibly it comes from having to produce lots of tracks specifically for the album as opposed to bringing tracks to the album.

In any case its fantastic stuff and some of the best metal you could buy this year. The DVD with the special edition is amongst the best I have seen, more often than not these are a `mad fan' only affair and rarely worth it but this is top quality, giving you a great insight into a great metal band, so well worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloomin Marvellous! 8 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
This disc is a masterpiece, forget all of those run of the mill metal bands claiming to be the next big thing, this band kick serious ***[...]! I got the censored version, but to be fair its not too noticable. The songs are crafted with precision and great technical ability. You know how it usually takes a while to digest an album? I was hooked on this on the 2nd spin. Again We Rise features an awsome vocal harmony among the crushing guitar and pounding drums....i can't be bothered to talk about each track as each one is brilliant. Highly recommend (i prefer this to Mastodons Blood Mountain)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite...
This isn't my favourite Lamb Of God album, but it's a very good CD. "Redneck" and "Pathetic" are just awesome, so buy the CD if you're a Lamb Of God fan like me.
