EDITORS’ NOTES

Reclaiming their provocative old moniker—Burn the Priest—for this one-off covers album, Virginian metal kings Lamb of God pay tribute to their early influences. As such, the band tears through pummeling versions of hardcore punk favorites like Bad Brains’ “I Against I,” Cro-Mags’ “We Gotta Know,” and Agnostic Front’s “One Voice” with maximum precision and intensity. But they also bring an aggressive metal edge to unexpected ’90s gems like Melvins’ “Honey Bucket,” Quicksand’s “Dine Alone,” and Ministry’s “Jesus Built My Hotrod.”

Not good

As far as covers go, none of these are good or memorable. I really like Lamb of God, and Burn the Priest. but they released a lazy cash grab with this album. There are a few reviewers who don’t seem to understand that this is a release of covers. (It’s not an old school revival of thrash, it’s an album of old school covers) If BTP can’t put a good twist on the originals and add something to them, why bother to redo them if none of the covers even come close to approaching their original greatness?
