    This album was garbage compared to their older stuff, the band has gone down hill since Sacrament. Ashes Of The Wake was their last good album, that being said... This album was better then Sacrament, I bought that album the day it got released and after listening to it all the way through tossed it into the trash.

    I'm a huge LOG fan, but their new stuff is exactly what they didn't want

  1. There's no denying the sheer "angry basement workout/summer garage weightlifting" potential that Wrath's perfectly acceptable 45-minute running time offers, but without a single hook that sticks around long enough to reel in the fish, all you've got is bait.
  2. Cuts like 'In Your Words' and 'Grace' cover an impressive amount of sonic ground, from delicate acoustic atmospherics to full-on rhythmic pummeling. Yet with frontman Randy Blythe's guttural growl--not to mention his bile-soaked lyrics about religious hypocrisy--this is hardly a bid for an active-rock breakthrough.

    They’re closer to turning monstrous dexterity into gut-wrenching metal, but for now, the oblatory goats and virgins are safe.
