Major label debut from highly talked about Metal band from Richmond Va. CD contains enhanced exclusive in-studio video. Currently attracting a lot of "buzz" on the 2nd stage of Ozzfest (there is one every year that creates the most hubub & they are it). Playing to crowds of 5,000 plus each night touring through September & signing copies of their independent release at the Ozzfest booth to great response. Alternative Press named them the band #3 in their "Most Important Metal Bands" poll. Guitarist from Megadeth featured on lead track "Laid To Rest".
"Violence begins to mend what was broken." Boy, how he does it. Choosing not to borrow the pinky ring flash of the Underworld and but rather good old fashioned eye for eye justice, singer Randy Blythe croaks savagely though "Omerta." Backed by a healthy dose of lumbering menace, the song is sung as if by vengeance itself. Violence begetting violence is a constant on this album, both in music and word; in both personal trial and world politics. Lamb of God have show their 80's thrash roots on Ashes of the Wake by featuring solos from both Testament and Megadeth. The band plows forward taking from the new, the old, and adding their own stamp--heavy, angry, and political. --Daniel Mahon

I would like to say; if you are new to vinyl, all recordings are not made equal, and this one is just OK. It does come with a free digital download to get the same album in MP3 format for free.
UPDATE: Almost six years later... I recently did a total overhaul on my sound system. New speakers, amp, turntable, the works. I've listened to this LP at least ten times on the new system and I have to say, sound quality is really good. I may have misjudged it on my mediocre system thinking it was a mediocre album. Sound quality is actually great, and for not being a special 180g remastered, audiophile (insert more pretentious terms here) it sounds terrific. Besides, since I got this, LoG has released quite a few albums, and this is still undoubtedly my favorite. If you're into metal, LoG and vinyl, it's a must have!
This is in my opinion, Lamb of God's finest album. Every single song on it is amazing. I highly recommend it.
