I am incensed right now after wasting ANOTHER $20 on this. As a loyal Lamb of God fan, I expected the band to do right by it's fans and deliver a great idea (producer edition,) but instead I feel RIPPED OFF. First of all, there is no software on the disc. Other artists have given fans the ability to mix songs on their CDs (Lily Allen "Alright, Still) and there was software contained on the CD allowing users to mix the tracks. So, now I'm scouring the internet looking for a trial version of mixing software and wasting hours looking for something relatively simple to use that doesn't end up costing me more money. Don't waste your money or time on this cash grab by the band and their label.
i never thought i would say this but LOG disappoint big time with this ball-less and tame album. the energy and the creativity prominent on all their previous efforts are nowhere to be seen on this album. personally, i cant even get through the record without getting bored and turning it off. whatever randy did with his vocals puts me to sleep faster than ambien. he sounds like 'the great southern trendkill'-era phil, and thats not a compliment compared to previous LOG albums. i cant believe all the five star reviews of this- you guys must like trivium. keep real metal alive- check out anything on relapse and willowtip records.
I've been listening to metal for over a decade. I read the reviews of this album, and they were good. And even though when I gave their earlier stuff a listen I was as bored with them as I am with Linkin Park, I still got the new one. The vocals are stupid. Really. The songs are completely unmoving. I really, really tried to like this. And even though the guitar is very good, very strong, the songs are very unoriginal. There are truly good moments on this album, I agree, but this band is NOT the great band people claim they are. They are not distinguished. They aren't even easy to like a little bit because of the stupid stupid vocals. Truly annoying. They butcher every song. Lastly they sound like they are just regurgitating metal cliches in every song. I know most people are going to disagree with me, but just like the James Blunt fans ( I like LOG more than Blunt, I'll give them that), they are deluded. LOG is, overall, NOT THAT GOOD.
I saw these guys in Nashville warming up for Metallica...I can see why they picked them...to make themselves look SOOOOO much better...because they are indeed...LOG literally lived up to their abbreviation and make me nod off to sleep on a couple of occasions during their set....and the lead singer appeared to be struggling to belt out the next line to whatever song they happen to be singing...these guys are just awful and anyone like "barbarian" who thinks differently and research a bit to discover what true metal sounds like...and believe me folks, this ain't it!
what happened to log? they sold out, they play garbage poseur rock so that people who want to be metal heads will buy their stuff. they've lost all their heaviness and i've lost all my respect for them, this is total 'scene' metal at it's worst!!!
NOT TO MENTION THEY TOTALLY BIT OFF OF MORBID ANGEL'S "COVENANT" FOR THEIR COVER ART!!! ARGGGG!
this album sucks, from begining to end. it is not the same lamb of god at all. if you are a true lamb of god fan you will realize from the very begining that this album blows. this album feels like it needs to be played in a hot topic store or somethin, it is not lamb of god. compared to palaces and ashes of the wake, it is laughable.dont but this, you will be waisting youre money, get the new suffocation album when it comes out instead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bind torture kill!!!!!!!!!!!
