5.0 out of 5 stars Burn the Priest is b-b-b-brutal July 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Randy Blythe, Abe Spear, Mark Morton, John Campbell, and Chris Adler formed a band called Burn the Priest in 1998, and released this, their first full length album, in 1999. Then they dropped Abe, replaced him with Willie Adler (Chris' brother) and changed their name to Lamb of God (probably to appeal to a broader audience). Five or six years ago, Burn the Priest were almost unheard of; but now any metalhead should know who they are.

Due to the success that Lamb of God have had, they re-released Burn the Priest's self-titled debut. If you thought "As the Palaces Burn" was brutal, you'll have to think of a different adjective for this band. You'll immediately know that this album is nothing short of a furious, all-out onslaught. It is simply relentless and extreme metal.

You may make some comparisons to "New American Gospel," but if I heard this C.D. without knowing Lamb of God's history, I would have never guessed this was them. First of all, it is about five times heavier than L.o.G. and about two times darker. Next, Chris Adler's constant double bass drumming is missing-or it's not AS constant, at least. And finally, Randy's vocals are different. He still summons his guttural death metal growls, but he lays down an equal amount of VERY high pitched, throat straining yells. Sometimes, he even switches back and forth (between the two vocal techniques) in the same song (i.e. in track eight). This C.D. is pretty unique, but if I had to compare it to some other bands, I'd say it's like a cross of Behemoth, Black Dahlia Murder, and Heaven Shall Burn.

"Bloodletting" is (especially the beginning) very freaky and startling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid re-discovery of a lost gem March 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Before they were Lamb of God, there was Burn the Priest; and the band name alone should tell what you're in for when you pop this disc in. The first thing you'll notice is that the music and vocals and far more death metal-esque tuned than anything the gang has released as Lamb of God, and it's all the better for it. Standout tracks like "Bloodletting", "Resurrection #9", and "Ruiner" are great, and will even have old time metal heads banging their heads in approval. The only downside of Burn the Priest is that it's over too short, and in that short time it loses steam towards the end of it's second half; which hurt the overall package. Not to mention that while this album features some amazing double bass drum assaults and roaring vocals, this isn't as "brutal" as previous reviewers are making it out to be, but despite all that, this is still great. If you're a Lamb of God fan, you'll no doubt eat this up, and for the rest of us, this is a solid re-discovery of a lost gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awe inpiring. September 7, 2006
By S. Sra
Format:Audio CD
This is perhaps the most vicious CD I have ever listened too. When I put it in I was expecting LOG to give me some sort of intro. No intro, you press play and its like setting off a car bomb. Favorite song? Chronic Auditory Hallucinations after the first listen it was immedialty put at the top as my favorite LOG song. I was hypnotized, it was truly startling. May not be perfect, but as most would agree, still way ahead of the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal Cd, A must have! April 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
i picked this cd up because a coworker and me were talking about different metal bands around the other day and he mentioned burn the priest. He told me that they were formally lamb of god and the whole history and the only way he could possible say to describe them was is that it was brutal and one of the most insane cds ever. It was so convincing i picked up the cd(i never do this) and the only thing i can say is wow he was right. This cd is more than brutal, its insane. The double bass, the vocals are leaps and bounds better than LoG in my opinion, and the guitar riffs are mind shattering. My favorite song is Bloodletting by far.....but all of them are amazing, if you like some good straight up metal, thats a lot heavier than lamb of god and most other metal bands out there today pick up this cd you wont be dissapointed. Its worth every penny. When i get mad i just blast this cd and wow....it makes me go crazy. Pick up this cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars And so it begins... January 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to Burn The Priest probably the same way everyone else was, knowing this was the beginnings of Lamb Of God. But this isn't the Lamb Of God that released Ashes Of The Wake (a great CD), this is more in line with the Lamb Of God that released New American Gospel, but take the band's intesity and brutality in that CD and multiply that by 4. Then you'll begin to have an idea of how crushing this CD truly is. I've been listening to death metal for about a year and this surprised me. If you think Randy's voice is insane now, then you haven't heard anything yet. My favorite CD of LoG's was New American Gospel, but for me, this CD tears it to shreds.

Everything you love about LoG is still here, the crazy guitars, bass, and drums, the only difference is that the intensity level is amped up beyond reason. When compared to other death bands, Burn The Priest's wealthy helping of 14 tracks against the average 10 goes to show that they weren't typical, so there's nothing you could really hate about this release. Each song sounds completely different from the last so it's not hard to decipher one track from the next. While I love the way the band plays, I think Randy's vocals are what makes this CD what it is. He goes from complete death growl to an all out scream like it's nothing, and that keeps the songs fresh to me. From the instant heaviness of Bloodletting to brutal ending of Ruiner, there's not one point on this CD that'll have you yearning to skip a track.

My favorite songs are Bloodletting, Resurrection #9, Lies Of Autumn, Suffering Bastard, and Ruiner. For me this is the perfect death metal album. I like when bands experiment, but I also admire the straight-forward metal. Burn The Priest being the latter of the two. If you're someone wanting to get into death metal, or metal in general, I wouldn't start here, but if you're already a fan of the genre and have yet to hear this, then by all means, head out right now and get it.
