4.7 out of 5 stars

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!!!!

Sacrament is Lamb of God's fourth full length studio album and perhaps their best to date. The musicianship is of the highest standard; head and shoulders above many of their peers, their influences and their own earlier albums.
The album is chocked full of career highlights from the brooding opener `Walk with Me in Hell,' or the anthemic chant along `Blacken The Cursed Sun,' to furiously catchy single `Redneck,' nothing is ever short of amazing, the band have never sounded so good. The album is such a step up its really difficult to stop listening to it over and over again when you first hear it.
Everything about this album just clicks, a trend started with 2004's Ashes of the Wake. When its fast and heavy, its fast and heavy in just the right way. When its dark and brooding, its dark and brooding in just the right way and so on.
Even the production is amazing, while the Producer named Machine may be criticized for making Ashes of the Wake a little too safe or overproduced, nothing but compliments are deserved for the dark and very heavy sound on Sacrament.
Every band member ups their game on this album, better bass, greater variety, more guitar solos and unbelievable quality drumming. Chris Adler is a fantastic drummer and brings an energy to the music that would surely be missing without him, as well as being the business brains and motivational focus of the band he is musical backbone and a huge part of what makes any song sound like Lamb of God.
I can't recommend the Sacrament enough; There are no weak songs on this album, there are no performances that feel phoned in and there are no guitar solos that sound anything less than the best solo that could possibly work in any given song. If you have even a passing interest in Lamb of God you really need to check out this album.

This album is of a high standard,for a modern metal band.Being Lamb of god's 5th album, I believe it is their best yet. AOTW and ATPB (3rd+4th albums)seemed a little too slow, with not enough melody an variety to keep you interested. This on the other hand does have melody, decent rythym, although no clean singing yet, still the death grunt. Also the inclusion of some decent guitar solos keeps interest,all in all a great album, although it is not as good as next album Wrath. Lamb of god are one of the very few modern metal bands that have kept the same vibe and originality of the thrash and death metal bands of the 80s and 90s, as most bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium,and Bullet for my Valentine have included pop like choruses, which dont fit in totally with metal, that's not to say they're not good bands though. Lamb of God, along with Machine Head, have kept heavy metal music original.
My favrouite tracks are
Walk With Me in Hell 10/10- Nice melodies and great guitar solo.
Again we Rise 9/10-Good song but I dont like the chorus. Good rythym in the verse.
Redneck 9/10- good, albeit too commercial.
Pathetic 7/10 alright. A very aggressive song with bitter lyrics.
Foot to the Throat- 9/10- Most people that like lamb of god will know this song.
The next few songs I dont really like, They are mostly filler.
Beating on Death's Door-10/10- Most lamb of god albums end with an epic,fast and aggressive song and this is no different.

Alli in all a good album 8/10.

I quite like this album. LOG are one of the better bands in a strain of the genre
I find it diffucult to get into, where most of the bands come with:

Their long beards
Their tacky concepts
Their heavily lighted full-frontal facial photographs incorporating their thin whispy smiles
Their gratitude to their parents
Both parents!!!
And usually leave music just as ignorant as they found it

To be honest with you, I accidentally stumbled across this album while searching on amazon at random. Listened to some of the preview tracks and thought I'd give it a go. Simply wow! I can't help but head bang along with some very attractive guitar and drum pieces. I just have to go careful not to injure my fellow passengers on the bus :), although it might knock some sense into people. Anyways if your into this kind of music you will not be disappointed.
