Before changing their name to Lamb Of God, this was their only album released under the title of Burn The Priest. And I absoultely love this album. It's very similar, a little bit heavier, than Lamb Of God's debut album, New American Gospel, which had to be recorded in very little time and as a result of six years, didn't sell as much as their next three albums, which really surprises me.
However, more to the point, Burn The Priest is an amazing album. So buy it!
This album really is hidden in the metal world. Not many people knew about it until Sacrament came out and LOG were on the unholy alliance and they became a massive metal band, people realised that they had this album under the name of burn the priest and what a hidden album it is. Randys voice is as violent as it gets and songs like Ressurection# are just superb. Drums and guitar in this album are really special and show that Abe spear the BTP guitarist as mark morton wasnt in the band at the time, is very talented. This album is a brilliant 1 so get it simple just pure metal.
The starting point of the band that is to become Lamb Of God, this album was insane with a metal dubstep drop equivalent in Resurrection #9 and insane possession like bars in Salivation. The first song should be called "Headphone Warning" due to the crazy sudden start, no intro just straight to it. Amazing album!
Although I prefer the Lamb Of God albums to this, I think this album is a superb start to an amazing band's career of heavy metal music. From "Bloodletting" to "Goatfish", the guitars, vocals or drums never let up. Long live Lamb Of God!
