INSANE! Flat out blew my mind just awsome. the vocals are deeper and more (this will sound corny) death-metalish. Jesus did not know Lamb of God if it hit him in the face. I started Lamb of God with the self titled album Burn the Priest. So this is my second album. My God they left the shreaking in hell and came back with the growls. This is the best metal I have heard in the ten months I have been listening to metal.
I think that it is the best ever hey what do you have to lose you have a lot to gain.
Amazon disowned me so I am writing under my mom's thing I am ether Bo-Bo or Imakuni? Rock on metal fans.
I'm an older guy (approaching 50) and I saw these guys at a concert that I had gone to to see another band and they were incredible. They drew me in and I have become a huge fan. I have all of the CDs by LOG and, to me, they show they really are true musicians by the fact that they continue to improve from album to album (or whatever they call them these days). The killer guitar riffs that just keep spilling out of these guys and Chris Adler's drumming is amazing. In my opinion this effort is every bit as good as the last, if not better. You should definitely get it if you're a metalhead like me.
Definitely the album that got me listening to this band. Initially I didn't listen to music this heavy, but songs like Walk With Me In Hell and Redneck definitely introduced me to their aggressive style. One thing about Lamb of God is that they don't hold back on lyrics, and you can feel every part of their songs. If you love music that has energy or metal, or both, you need to listen to Lamb of God.
For awhile now I never really liked lamb of god but I decided to go ahead and buy this cd after already owning Ashes in the Wake and discovered a new must have band for any metalhead's collection. This band kicks your [...] from the start to the finish on this cd. I have become a serious lamb of god fan now and I listen to this cd and ashes all the time now. All their political digs aside which I don't fully agree with this band has a killer sound and the vocals make them even better they fit the type of brutallity you hear when you play songs like Walk with me in Hell,or Redneck. This band is one of best in American metal alongside Killswitch of course. I would recomend this cd to anybody who likes brutal,heavy hard hitting metal that kicks [...] from start to finish.
Arguably the best album Lamb of God has released. Not a single track on this album is disappointing. From beginning to end it's full of heavy riffs, shredding solos, Randy's vocals are some of the best, Adler is kicking ass on the double bass, and the messages the songs get across really is "Pure American Metal". Lamb of God has always been one of the kings of metal and this album definitely is a great example of that. I must have listened to Descending 100 times in a row. You will not regret this purchase.
These guys will make you want to lite a flaming bag of dog crap on you neighbors house because your neighbors will make you turn it down, you can't listen to this loud enough! The vocals are deep and sinister, the way I like it! The instrumental is heavy and hard hitting, another great attribute! And what is a better title of a song than "Foot to the Throat"! If this all sounds good to you, buy this album! The whole CD never lets up, always a heart pounding array of metal excelance! I love this band and this album only makes things better. I would buy it again if I had to and I would suggest it be on your to do list as well.
Lamb of God's "South of Heaven"? The only possible analogy is that they wrote a good album following a genre defying piece - in which case I guess "Far Beyond Driven" and "Iowa" are Pantera and Slipknot's "South of Heaven". Anyway...
This is an excellent album. Any one of these songs would fit right in on Ashes, which is fine because Ashes is in my opinion the best metal album of the new millenium. So far Lamb of God has changed their sound somewhat in either 2 or 3 stages starting with the more death metal style "Burn the Priest" era and progressing - however this, as aforementioned fits in well with their current and understandably established new "Ashes" sound.
In sum, you either get it or you don't. Lamb of God is the new face of mainstream metal.
To anyone who's trying to say that Lamb of God has changed in any big way has to either quit using drugs or start using drugs depending on the situation. LOG hasn't really changed since their last few albums. Yes, you can hear a few new sounds hear & there but that's about it; it still sounds like what you would expect from the band & even more! This album is better than 'Ashes of the Wake' if you can imagine it! As Randy might say, "BUY IT & blast it f**kers!"
I purchased Sacrament because I was in need of some new (to me), hardcore workout music. The kind that gets you through the last three reps of a brutal deep squat. I already have Wrath, which I enjoy, so I figured I'd try this album out.
I don't like Sacrament as much as Wrath, which is the only reason this doesn't get 5/5 stars. However, this is still pretty beastly and makes me want to add more Lamb to my workouts. If this were the first album of theirs I ever heard, it would easily make me want more.
A technical note, this album is pretty unrelenting, which is what I love about Lamb of God. They rarely get into slower stuff. Everything is hardcore, but still interesting. They never sound "recycled" unlike an unfortunate majority of bands.
