EDITORS’ NOTES

In 2006, the fifth album from this Richmond, Virginia metal band landed them their first Billboard Top 10 chart debut, their first Grammy nomination (for lead single “Redneck”), and their first network TV appearance (performing “Pathetic” on Late Night with Conan O’Brien). But more importantly, the album’s mix of grooves and abrasiveness helped establish the stylistically eclectic so-called New Wave of American Heavy Metal—of which Lamb of God were undoubtedly leaders—as a combustive, turbulent commercial force.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

OH MY GOD!

Lamb of God has proven that you can be perfectionists, and still keep a level of the unexpected in metal. This album is sharp and unrelenting. This is a must for a metalhead workout, or the roadrage 500 commute. I am an ER nurse, and this is the soundtrack to my nights; night after night after night ect. If you like melodic singing, skip this, if Metallica's "black album" is your idea of the best metal album ever made, skip this, if you want to be reduced to a pile of steaming electrolytes, this is your pick.

Unreal

Someone wrote (with a one star review) that this album sounds like Satan spat up a band from the bowels of Hell. I couldn't have said it better myself, f'ing awesome!

It's a big digression from previous albums, with a lot of heavy grooves, but it's still brutal as hell and definitely more than stands on its own merits. Where previous recordings were far more political than religious, the heart and soul (ha) of this album is the religious stuff, especially "Walk With Me In Hell", "Descending", and "Blacken the Cursed Sun"... and I can see that making some people uncomfortable. But really, they just played the Unholy Alliance tour with Slayer, their original name was Burn The Priest... what did you expect?
