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.
