Lamb of God Biography - Lamb of God Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

Deluxe two CD edition of the 2009 album from the American Heavy Metal heads including a bonus CD that contains the ’stems’ of the album (separated musical parts). Wrath is inspired by and based on the 10 plagues from the book of Exodus. After the reflective Sacrament (2006), a deeply personal album that found Blythe exorcising his personal demons, Wrath turns its lyrical focus outward, and returns to more of the breakneck riffing that characterized the band’s early material. A change in producers, from Machine to Josh Wilbur, was the kick in the pants that this band needed to recapture its more visceral side. On Wrath, Lamb Of God raise the Thrash bar to a new level. 11 tracks.

  • What more do fans want? If LOG branches sharply into new musical directions, they’ll be chopped down for selling out, and if they stay exactly the same, they’ll be accused of repeating a formula.

    This disc leans toward the latter, but not so much that it’s routine. In fact, I consider the production on this disc to be among of the current benchmarks in the genre–crisp and heavy, front-and-center, sharp around the edges, state-of-the-art thrash.

    Randy Blythe nails his vocals too, and they’re mixed in like a fifth instrument, giving the songs a collective sonic weight.

    As always, the musicianship is top notch here, especially the guitar playing, and of course, the drums. I consider Chris Adler to be the Neil Peart of… well, his playing defies genre. He’s just amazing to listen to.

    If I had to pick one song to highlight, I’d say “Contractor” and its head-crushing 25 second break toward the end. I’ll never get tired of listening to that.

  • This album is almost a physical assault. It is HEAVY. It is nothing like Sacrament or Ashes of the Wake. It has to grow on you… largely because as soon as the CD begins playing LOG will beat you into a coma so it might take you a few tries to get through it. Did I mention this album is heavy? My first impression was, “Blech! Overkill! And he’s singing a bit differently!” But you know what? Wrath is damn good. It isn’t my favorite, but it’s damn good. And it’s exciting. LOG has said that they are a punk band that plays metal and Wrath is a beautiful illustration of that… its sheer relentlessness reminds me of my days of listening to hardcore. It kind of makes me twitchy with energy. If you have a heart condition or any kind of seizures avoid this album…. but then again, it ain’t a half-bad way to go.

  • Wrath is an excellent album. Randy’s best vocal work, period. If you like metal, real metal, you’ll love this album. It is straight forward with great riffs and focused song writing. It is a lot better than Sacrament and the production is simpler, which allows the band to truly shine with their instruments. Reclamation is the song the band’s been trying to write for their last track. It is an absolute monster!

  • While Ashes of the Wake remains my favorite LoG album to date, Wrath holds it’s own. It may be my new second favorite, displacing Sacrament. It begins with an instrumental track that starts with acoustic guitar and morphs into a light groove of metal goodness. The second track hits hard and is more what you might expect from LoG. The rest of the album is basically typical LoG with a bit more variety. The last track is a pleasant surprise. The deluxe edition includes a second CD containing separate MP3 tracks for guitar, bass, drums, and vocals for each song so you can experiment with re-mixing. Very cool. Highly recommended new album (2009).

  • For the past month I’ve been reading early reviews of this album, and it has been getting a mixed reception. To be honest, I place this album in between Sacrament and Ashes of the Wake. It’s still got a raw sound (nothing like their earlier stuff) and it has the “radio-friendly” sound of Sacrament. I know this is going to dissappoint die-hard fans of their earlier albums. I classify myself as one of those fans, but I’m not dissappointed at all. The sad fact is that bands evolve. This is far less of a dissappointment like The Haunted’s latest effort….. ugh. We live in a terrible time where bands just can’t seem to hold on to what made them amazing, and they lose their overall brutal sound. Wrath holds onto that quality well enough. As far as I’m concerned, nothing will ever be as great as Ashes of the Wake, or As the Palaces Burns (which would be their best album if the recording quality was up to par with Ashes), but Wrath will definately stay in my cd player for the next month or so. It’s a solid album and worth a chance. I can tell it’s one of those albums that needs to grow on you. I will always support LOG and in my eyes, they are one of the most consistent metal bands out there.
