    A very good record yet again from Lamb of God. Like always, it is rather intense, heavy and aggresive while being awesomely catchy at the same time. Some of the tracks are within Lamb of God's best songs. It is really very good. Definitely buy it if you're a Lamb of God fan, but if you aren't this won't do anything to change your mind.

    Goddamn, I think this is Lamd of God's best work to date. Better than Sacrament, better than Ashes of the Wake and As the Palaces Burn combine. Lamb of God keeps heavy metal alive. Asking Alexandria doesn't have **** on these guys

    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
    to sound like
    "now that, that Nu Metal is dying out" -( Randy Blythe) the issue is that they are Nu Metal

    What is there to say about LOG that hasnt been said before.
    They are raw, aggressive. And this is THE perfect follow up to Era defining 'Sacrament' but to me this basic and raw LOG is better than the effect laden Sacrament.
    But whatever. LOG and their music are always top class. Blythe is more diverse in vocals, and his lyric writing is as brutal and sophisticated as ever.
    And the
    instrumentalists are as brilliant as ever. The standout for me is Contractor, a tribute to speed punk. And its just a brilliant, and whole album. Worthy of standing alone in the contemporary metal classics. The only thing wrong with it, it has a time limit. Expand

  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.
