5.0 out of 5 stars Again They Will Rise..., 30 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Sacrament (Audio CD)
Well, what can I say? They have done it again - and possibly with their best album yet! Don't get me wrong, I love all their albums, but this was the first Lamb Of God album I bought after hearing Redneck on Kerrang, and I've been hooked ever since! If you are a fan of Lamb Of God, then you will love it; if you are new to metal then this album is a very good starting point! I couldn't choose any standout tracks if I tried because they're all amazing - the sound of musicians at the top of their game. Mark Morton and Willie Adler lay down some amazing riffs to rival even the mighty riffs of 'Laid To Rest' and 'Hourglass' from Ashes Of The Wake - 'Redneck' is a favourite of mine, with a riff to die for!
Album opener 'Walk With Me In Hell' has a really dark opening riff, then it goes into headbanging territory, with some outstanding drum work from Chris Adler! This then runs into 'Again We Rise', a song about heresy - again, a truly amazing song. One of my personal favourites 'Redneck' storms in at Track 3 on the album, the riff is a stroke of genius! Then comes the breakneck 'Pathetic' with a breakdown riff so good it'll blow you away! 'Foot To The Throat' has an interesting breakdown to really give the song some variety, and is a very ferocious song, as the title suggests. The machine gun double pedalling of 'Descending' is astounding - this one's a real thrash song! 'Blacken The Cursed Sun' is an absolute stormer and another of my personal favourites, with the band firing on all cylinders. This is closely followed by 'Forgotten (Lost Angels)' and 'Requiem' which run straight into one another with no trouble at all, and both songs are brilliant! Then comes 'More Time To Kill', a song with a really evil and driving riff, and finally comes 'Beating On Death's Door', a huge sounding song that closes a truly epic metal album! As I said earlier, both Mark Morton and Willie Adler churn out some truly amazing riffs, with John Campbell and Chris Adler making a truly formidable rhythm section and a force to be reckoned with! Randy Blythe's vocals are as powerful as ever, although there is some melody added in on some songs, which I think is a great addition to an already great sound! And as always, his lyrics are brilliant and poignant!
Definitely one of my favourite metal albums from possibly the finest metal band on this planet! I recommend this album!!!!
