    While the five-piece continue to write virtually the same song over and over again (hell, practically in the same key), there are new proggier and acoustic bits (Ghost Walking) on display.

    While there's plenty here to keep heads banging, there's not much to challenge the grey matter inside them.

    Mostly, Lamb of God stick to conservative values that metalheads can respect and everyone else can continue to ignore.

Each of their albums remains heavy and creative, yet they all simultaneously carry the kind of weight many metal bands only strive to reach. With Resolution, Lamb of God have proven that they don't plan on slowing down any time soon. This is miles ahead of Wrath, and their best album since Ashes of the Wake. All band members continue to show creativity in highlight songs such as album opener Straight For the Sun, Ghost Walking, The Undertow, The Number Six, and their best album closer yet, King Me. To say that these are highlights of the album, however, also would imply that they're "better" songs. That's the beauty of this album as well...there is no filler. Each song serves its purpose and illustrates why Lamb of God are one of the best modern metal bands of the era, and thankfully, they're here to stay. Thank God for Lamb of God. Full Review »
