Metal Hammer

Call it a rebirth, a coronation or just a fantastic goddamned album, but it’s clear that with Lamb Of God, the American legends have just notched an exhilarating new high point.

Kerrang!
Its ten songs’ brilliance lies in their indomitable response. Refusing defeat, they snarl back with the exhilarating doggedness of beasts who’ve taken the hardest beatings life can give, but remain ravenous for more.

Metal Injection
Listening to Lamb of God’s self-titled album brings to mind the Rob Zombie quote: “Every cool riff has already been written by Black Sabbath.” Taking that to heart, there’s respect to be found in these guys choosing to do what they do best instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.

Exclaim!

There's a different attitude conveyed in their music these days, but the songwriting and performances on Lamb of God are more than solid, and with typical polished modern metal production, they still sound muscular and vigorous.

No Ripcord

The group operates as an adrenaline shot that comes mostly in four to five-minute form; enough time for a couple of sledgehammer verses and choruses and a brutal break before restoring the main theme with added vigor. That said, there are some interesting variations and patterns that keep Lamb of God churning forward without becoming too much of a drag.

Rolling Stone
Although 45 minutes of Middle-Aged White Male Aggression may feel out of pace with the current national moment, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has always written more open-minded and inclusive lyrics than many of his peers — you just have to strain your ears to make sense of his screeds.

Yo, what's up guys, Schizoid Boi here with another album mixing tutorial, and today we are going to take a look at the new self-titled Lamb of God record. So first, you have your rough mix right? Good, now you just wanna compress those drums to death! Just the bass drum and the snare though, keep those hi-hats low. Got that? Well now it's time for the most important part, and that is pushing those drums waaaaay up, so that they are the loudest thing in the mix. Ok, now push them up even ... read more

Lamb of God come back with a pretty standard lamb of god album we all have heard before. So tell me why I love it? While there's a bit of fatigue from hearing the same scale in the same key, theres plenty of exciting moments and overall songs in here. Tell me Resurrection man's breakdown didnt have you headbanging. Memento Mori of course kills. But my personal favourites of the album were Routes, On the Hook, Poison Dream and Ressurection Man.

On the hook in particular is an excellent song. I ... read more

So these guys think they can just make another heavily riff-focused metal album almost entirely in drop d tuning with little variety and make me still love the album? I mean it worked.
