Product Description

Since the epic debut Ashes of Wake two years ago, the amazing, revolutionary band, Lamb of God has come out with another "Pure American Metal" album, entitled Sacrament, full of twisting, intricate, heart-pumping hooks that are sure to get your blood curdling.

Amazon.com

Contemporary metal doesn't get much better or blistering than Lamb of God, something the quintet proves track-by-track on this latest offering. Armed with a bevy of furious riffs and perhaps even more furious vocals, the group tears through tracks such as "Walk with Me in Hell" and "Foot to the Throat" with a ferocity too-little-heard among the sea of bands that the group has inspired in its still-young career. Detractors will be tempted to fault the band for its lack of subtlety, but they're clearly missing the point. There are but a handful of young heavy bands worthy of carrying the proud torch of metal in this decade, and Lamb of God--along with The Esoteric and Totimoshi--is one of them. Just take a listen to "Again We Rise," "Requiem," or "Pathetic" and see if you don't agree. --Jedd Beaudoin

After establishing themselves as one of heavy music's best and most promising and talented active bands with their first three albums, Lamb Of God knew the time was right to expand their sound. The band members have said in interviews that they can't keep making the same records over and over, or they'd get bored and retire sooner than many want them to. Plus, a great band will always try to top their past albums, even if though it would be extremely hard to outdo 2003's great "As The Palaces Burn" and `04's wonderful "Ashes Of The Wake."

There is no doubt that "Sacrament," LOG's fourth studio release, takes several musical strides and new directions. Probably the first thing you'll notice is that the sound is a lot more restrained. The riffs aren't nearly as meaty or constant and the Chris Adler's machine gun double bass drumming only occasionally sprouts up.

The next thing you'll notice is that "Sacrament" has a greater black metal influence. The overall sound is a lot darker, and frontman Randy Blythe's vocals sound more wicked because he shrieks more than usual (at least once in every song).

The listener will be fairly uncertain of "Sacrament" after listening to the first track, "Walk With Me In Hell." It does feature bursts of stop-start double kick drums and a chilling whisper of the title phrase, but it's still a very different sound than what we're used to. It's also highlighted by a cool, winding/mazey guitar solo. Following that song is "Again We Rise," which is a bit more muscular and propulsive due to its punching riffs, but it's still only so heavy. "Redneck" (the lead single) is so surprising and daring it's almost startling.

After taking a few albums to establish their modern update of classic thrash and death metal, Lamb of God have reached the top of their game. This album is jampacked with maturing songwriting ideas and increasing instrumental prowess. Sacrament is a little less dramatic, but much more solid, than the nearly-masterful Ashes of the Wake. The band's crowning glory is still their fearsome rhythm section, with terrifyingly precise drummer Chris Adler and the lowdown gutbucket bass of John Campbell (he's so low that maybe only Satan can fully hear him). Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler are improving noticeably, especially with their solos and the creativity of their thrash riffs. Randy Blythe's vocals continue to be a bit of a drawback, because he sounds pretty stereotypical when he stays in his usual guttural cookie monster growl. However, Blythe is showing signs of greater excitement when he decides to stretch beyond his normal range, and he is certainly rising above the style of today's standard metal screamer. The politics of Blythe's lyrics are still muddled, though his sheer angry misanthropy and anti-establishment rants are getting pretty interesting.

Lamb of God's growth as songwriters can be heard in two extra noteworthy tracks here. "Redneck" adds a sly southern rock twist to a blistering riff, over Blythe's diatribe about a certain highly-placed (ahem) redneck; while the turgid slow burn of "Descending" offers great drama and a growing sense of dynamics.

This is (arguably) LoG's best album. Right from when you press play, there's the live classics Walk With Me In Hell, Again We Rise, and Redneck and then there's plenty more crushing metal tracks on the rest of the album. If you haven't heard this album before, you're seriously missing out

Lamb of God is a dynamic band filled with talent and skill but honestly this CD just didn't really do it for me. I've been listening to Sacrament over and over again since the very day it came out and as much as I try to I can't seem to get into it. I've loved LOG since the Burn The Priest days and with each subsequent album they have furthered themselves in every aspect of the music from the double bass to the flawless riffs and Randy's vocals there has always been a great step forward or a progression if you will but aside from Randy pushing himself vocally this time around I see this CD greatly lacking in anything of substance.

I think when they chose to let the producer "Machine" in on the creative process they made a huge mistake he worked well with Randy but not that great with the rest of the band. This music is much more geared for concert goers in fact I saw LOG recently and they played some of the songs off Sacrament in Atlanta and they sounded great. Why did they sound great? They sped up the tempo and if you are any true metal fan you would know that seeing these bands live should always sound better than the CD. The problem is even though the music is great live the way it was recorded wasn't. With that being said lyrically the band changed to more personal issues which is a nice switch from the political but the music sounds generic (at some parts) and sounds very radio friendly which is not typical of Lamb of God. They added a couple of nice touches such as some southern rock influences but all in all besides "Walk with me in hell" and "Descending" the music steadily gets choppier and less fluid. This is just me but if you are a new fan don't judge this band on this record alone I beg you to go pick up "As The Palaces Burn" or "Ashes Of The Wake". If you have been a fan all along like me watch the video for "Redneck" and tell me that something has not gone horribly wrong in this band.
