Editorial Reviews

Remastered and repackaged with four bonus tracks, exclusive liner notes from the band, and the video for the proven classic 'Black Label', alongside a re-imaging facelift from longtime band collaborator Ken Adams, LAMB OF GOD's now famous debut album finally gets the treatment it deserves in 2006. The music on New American Gospel has quickly become both essential and classic metal material, having already helped to revitalize and re-inspire a once stale American metal scene and assist in usher in this decade's New Wave of American Heavy Metal and forever leaving its mark on the worldwide metal scene.

First of all - it should be noted that Ashes of the Wake was the album that converted me into one of the legions of believers. However, after going through LOG's catalog, I feel compelled to hammer out a review of this album, in that it could the most important album to understanding the hype that now shrouds this band.

New American Gospel is a really unique album. It is the least accesible and commercially viable album by LOG. It is their first effort as Lamb of God, who were known as Burn the Priest before this album. New American Gospel (NAG) is the then young band's attempt at transforming the metal genre singlehandedly. I don't buy the accusation that LOG jumped on the metlacore/hardcore bandwagon. They were driving it (if there was such a thing). Furthermore, I don't really think you could put this album easily into any category. Its definitely not death metal. there are a few growling vocals, and very sparse blast beats, but nothing that close to Hate Eternal here. It's definitely not hardcore, although it may be hardcore inspired (they are from Richmond - only an hour or so away from DC, the birthplace of Hardcore) The vocals aren't shouted, they aren't positive, and there are a few guitar solos and harmoized guitar work present. Perhaps the best way to wrap your head around this album is through a description of what it is, as opposed to what it's not.

Randy Blythe's vocals are like no other out there. He employs a yelped type scream. Its closer to black metal than death metal -but definitely not black metal. There are guest vocals on this album from Steve Austin (on the song Terror and Hubris), of Today is the Day fame, who also produced this album.

If you hear about a band called Lamb of God, and the album is called "New American Gospel", what do you expect it to sound like? A nice poppish little Christian album, like DC Talk, right? Wrong. Way wrong! Disguised under the name Lamb of God is the heaviest, most mind-blowingly brutal band I've ever heard. These guys take every kind of extreme metal there is (hardcore, death metal, grindcore) and compact it all into one unbelievably destructive package. Check out songs like "Black Label" and "Letter to the Unborn". Your ears are gonna bleed! I read a description of these guys in a metal magazine that said they were "a rawer, more talented version of Pantera". I don't know about more talented, but the raw part is right. If you love extreme metal, here's your new favorite album. Lamb of God will kick your @$$!

After releasing their Burn the Priest album, this band couldn't get much more heavy or brutal. New American Gospel does not try to out-gun the band's previous effort. It is slower, but still VERY raw and relentless throughout.

New American Gospel was the first Lamb of God cd I got (this was a big mistake). I didn't like Randy's inaudible vocals on this album at first. It took me many listens to develop a liking for this album. If you're looking to buy your first Lamb of God cd, get Ashes of the Wake. This album is very in-your-face and the entire band really wants to punish your ears on all 10 tracks. The instrumental is top notch throughout, and the lyrics are very good also- which brings me to my only gripe. Randy's inaudible vocals, though usually good, get a bit annoying on "Letter to the Unborn", "Subtle Arts of Murder and Persuasion" and "O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E." if you listen to them for too long.

The assault begins with the awesome "Black Label", which is one of my personal favorite Lamb of God songs. The first 30 seconds or so of this on either this cd or Killadelphia really speaks for itself. "A Warning" is short and very sweet. "Black Dahlia" is very fun to listen to, especially towards the end. "Terror and Hubris in the House of Frank Pollard", aside from having a bizarre title, is very good, beginning with the guitar solos and then moving into the rest of the song, which is quite diverse fromt the rest of the cd and really stands out. "Pariah" is one of the most lyrically brutal songs on the cd, and really delivers.

Overall, New American Gospel is a very good listen for those who are already Lamb of God fans. A lot of these songs translate very well to their live cd/dvd release, Killadelphia.

This might be my favorite Lamb Of God album. This is my favorite cuz it's their most death metal-esque album. The album starts out with Black Label. I've seen LOG at Ozzfest 2004, and when they performed this song, there was the Wall Of Death. I'm glad I didn't take part of that pit, if i did, I might be dead! Anyway, the song is awesome, love the double bass. Next is another favorite, A Warning. For a while ir was my favorite song. I love it, it's very heavy. But my favorite song here is Terror And Hubris In The House of Frank Polard. It starts with an awesome guitar riff, and gets to be one of - no, THE heaviest - song in the album. It also has guest vocals. Don't know who they are by, but whoever he is, he's kickass!!! Other great songs include Pariah and O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E. (Officer D***head Gets A Black ****ing Eye). All the songs rock, but the above mentined are my favorites. Overall, a great metalcore CD. Lamb Of God are the future of metal, they deserve your support. Anyway, this album is their best CD. Go buy this right now!
