Guest review by

After a very good release named "New American Gospel", I was waiting with great expectation Lamb Of God's new album. And it was worth the waiting. Three years after the bomb, comes the explosion. It's obvious the evolution of the band as deeper and more complex riffs and solos constantly appear. The songs are better written and the execution is great.

Rating: 10 This is one of my favorite albums of all time! it might be a bit underrated but i hope the new remastered edition will help this, as it makes the music clearer.
My only complain is that it's a bit short but who cares incredible groove, perfect drumming!

  The remaster does a great job of making this sound fuller and more complete - more Ashes of the Wake/Sacrament sounding, less New American Gospel. I'd probably initially give this a 6 but I definitely prefer the thicker remastered sound and different guitar effects, and would probably bump it up to a 7 accordingly. Still a few filler tracks in my opinion, from "Boot Scraper" to "Blood Junkie" there aren't a lot of standout moments. The first five tracks are great though, and "Vigil" works really well as a closer.

Rating: 9 Not a perfect album but has some great songs like "vigil" and "11th hour"...

I hope they remaster Burn The Priest & New American Gospel too!

  Just Listened today, for the first time from Front to back. Overall good, will be spinning again soon to grasp the album as a whole better.

Goddamn Vigil is an excellent track.

Agreed. Personally I like how they kept it simple, it gives it so much space and power. Neck breaker that track.

Rating: 9 Very powerful album. This album simply gives me that child-like giddy-ness that excites me. To each his own though.

Rating: 9 I really never could decide which was my favourite. I love so many of them equally.

Same here, in fact before they have started to go through a downfall, one of the rare bands I like most of their songs
