This was the opening floodgates for Lamb Of God's metal career, and it goes by the original name of "Burn The Priest"; (which was soon to be changed into Lamb Of God - the current incarnation), and it's a rather well done consortium of uncompromisory:- Groove, Death, Thrash, Doom and other metallic sub-influences. Despite the rather nicely raw handling with the execution, this does come across as an album with abit of a puzzling self-identity. The songwriting priority appears to be rather low on the agenda as a 'series upon series' of crunchy riffs and hateful sound bites, receive the majority of the focus and airtime.

Featuring most of the sludgy rhythms and in-the-face riffs to-which Lamb Of God has become known, this is bound to delight the mosher crowd with a purely energetic sound and frequency behind it. Indeed the tight drum work from Chris Adler' is a highlight, and of course the trademark LOG vocal screams and roars courtesy of 'Randy Blyth' create an abundance of aggressive, if slightly generic qualities. The re-vamped reissue of "Burn The Priest" however, contains a set of 14 newly remixed tracks, and a bonus video of "Bloodletting" as a small extra bonus of appreciation.

Personally, I felt that this was on an equal footing with that of Lamb Of God's debut release of "The New American Gospel". But after that album, much of the main positive work:- accomplished here was utilised in a much more mature and expressive style. Straight jacket metal fans however, will find a treasure-trove of cut-throat metal right here to be had.,

I tried to by this album on the high street, couldn't find it anywhere. Lamb Of God is my favorite Metal band and this is the only album I don't have in my collection. However the CD casing was damaged. I just wonder if there was a person who was anti-metal who packaged it, the CD luckily wasn't damaged so I'm not gonna complain.
