Lamb Of God: Sacrament

Genre: Metal
Label: Epic

There's a reason Lamb Of God has become one of the hottest bands in metal today and this latest album surely takes that claim to the highest level. Sacrament is a seamless blend of muscle, production and groove with enough horsepower to pin you to your seat and leave your ears bleeding far into the next decade.

Metal has always been a musician's sport and LOG are definitely players in that respect. The display of instrumental virtuosity on Sacrament is, in and of itself, the new magnum opus of the genre ... but the sheer brutality of Randy Blythe's growling vocals, put down over such tight arrangements, seriously redefines the way I'll be listening to metal in the future.

Granted ... I've never been a huge fan of guttural. Hard and melodic has always been my thing; however, with a growing number of bands going back to the style we used to call thrash in the '80s it's hard to reject the possibility that, just maybe, this style is as much an art form as the more harmonious music that originally launched the metal genre. You know, the stuff that scared the shit out of our parents? And, if that's the case, Lamb Of God might not be considered pioneers ... but certainly the cream on the latte.

Overall, I like Sacrament. I can feel the conviction in the music and found myself grooving to it on several occasions. I would be remiss in my duties as a true metalhead to give this record anything short of 4 stars!
