CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound
The exploration and craft put into Blythe’s lyrics, along with the stunning musicianship of each member, allows for an exhilarating work of pure heavy metal. This album isn’t just an awesome release from Lamb of God, but a perfect record to unite metalheads as one.

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.

80
NME

On album 10, the genre veterans go into battle with a host of heavy titans, laying waste to everything in their path. Slow down with age? Nah!

AllMusic

Lamb of God is a tense, yet confident album for taut and uncomfortable times.

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.

Classic Rock
Delivering the goods with considerably more venom than you might expect at this stage in the game, Lamb of God remain hard to b(l)eat.

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.

Metal Sucks
Despite an undeniable familiarity to the music, their passion and professionalism makes them stand out. As Blythe said, there may never be another Metallica or Iron Maiden, but nor will there be another Lamb of God.

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
