For anyone who doesn't know Lamb Of God is a (disputed) thrash act from Richmond Virgina. While being very technical, they also have a nice deep chugging feeling throughout their songs. Sometime this Summer they should be releasing their album Sacrement, which is being strictly kept under wraps. What are your thoughts on the band? Do you think the new album will be better then their earlier material? Who is your favorite member in the band and why?

dude if you watch the dvd that comes with Sacrament decision they think it topped Ashes
and i agree because their approach may sound like another band there's stuff i haven't heard any other band do
the vocals were actually worked on in detail this time, it was so cool to see how they practiced
and how certain songs arised.
If you do get the deluxe edition, it's worth it i think if your a fan
if not just get the cd i guess

Even though Sacrament is my least favorite Lamb of God album, I still fucking love it. The thing that stands out for me, besides the vocals, is the drumming. Chris Adler takes charge of all the songs with his amazing skills and can make the songs (for the lack of a better word) progress with only small changes on the drums. It's kinda hard for me to explain, but from the top of my head some examples are the 2nd and 8th tracks. Also, Redneck is really growing on me. I was annoyed at the vocals at first, but now I really like it and think that it's the best track on the album. I don't think it sounds at all like Pantera though. No one sounds like Phil...

Oh, and the DVD is awesome. 90 minute documentary of how they made Sacrament!

Heard a couple of tracks from Sacrament and to be honest didnt really impress me, which is a little disapointing because i like all their previous stuff. On the tracks ive heard the vocals have annoyed me, hopeful it was just on those songs. I'll check out some more tracks to to if its worth getting, but from the reach to it seems its worth checking.

'Sacrament' is good musically but is still no 'As The Palaces Burn' or 'New American Gospel'. Their stuff sounded a lot better when it sounded raw like that. The last 2 studio albums sound way too polished for that style I reckon. If they re-recorded 'Ashes' and 'Sacrament' but lost the shiny-ass production I'd like them so much more.

What do you think of their production?

yes i agree!!
the thing i loved so much about 'As The Palaces Burn' was how raw the guitars sounded!!
i wish they had that sound back

well the two above comments make me laugh because
in the sacrament dvd, Mark Morton [guitar]
said fans/people always tend to want us to do what you did an album before for a new album
and he also added, i don't really care though if people want that
also i dunno about " sound" of the production on ATPB and NAG is even a big deal?
i rather have those albums re-recorded because of the unpolished quality
and isn't the raw production sound really tend to work really with black metal?
i'm probably wrong
if production is your only complaint, well that's good and bad if you think about it

There is a great drum part in one of the last songs...where he does this crazy off-beat cymbal thing. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Sellathurai: yes you are wrong. production isnt just a scale of good to bad - it is how each of the different instruments sound - and people have different prefrences as to how they like specific instruments, e.g. the guitar sounding raw
black metal is more then just 'raw production' as well

we dont want them to do what they did an album before, as want them to sound like they did on their second album, and that is probably how it will stay. i cant see them changing their sound now

Mark Morton's opinion means nothing to me, even though it is his own band. My own personal taste is that I prefer the production on the earlier stuff. To me, it just seems to fit the style better.

Obviously as they move onto bigger and better record labels they will get access to better equipment (maybe the production on pre-Ashes albums wasn't even intentional?) but to me, the last 2 studio albums don't have the same Lamb of God feel. The music is great, kick-ass music(!) but it just sounds too worked on... I dunno.

About production being my only complaint, it really is. I love everything about the way this band work. Everything fits perfectly. But I feel that the raw-type production was a massive factor of their own personal sound. Not many popular bands had that type of sound.

Listening to Sacrament again I'm not as impressed as I was with my first listen, and I agree with everyone about the production. However I still like this alot more than Ashes and it's right up there with their first 2 for me. If they had the raw production with this album it would definetly be my favorite LoG album. But it's still one of my favorites haha and I have yet to watch the DVD but I hear good things about it.

I need to get Sacrament. Seems like it's a lot better than Ashes of the Wake, though that says nothing.

Sacrament is a great album. On about the same level as Ashes Of The wake but everyone is right, it is no As The Palaces Burn or New American Gospel.

Just finished watching the DVD. God, Machine is an annoying producer. Always in their faces being overly happy. He needs to chill! Did a good job on the album though.

Sacrament is a fucken masterpiece! My favourite track on that album is ''Descending''. It has a really smooth beginning that ends in stone cold aggressive metal. I can feel how Randy is screaming his voice away from his heart. I think their best work ever since is the album ''Ashes Of The Wake'' (with songs like ''Hourglass'', ''Blood Of The Scribe'' and ''Another Nail For Your Coffin''). One of my favourite bands for sure!

i personaly loved this album but i love all the Lamb of God albums including Burn The Priest, I love that they have a distinctive sound but every album sounds different then the last, and I think that is what will keep this band alive because getting a new Lamb Of God cd will always be unexpected, because you will always have to ask yourself, what kind of preformance did these guys put on this one

i got into Lamb of God sometime just after i saw the metal: a headbanger's journey (they used Laid To Rest for the oopening credits) anyway... i have been listening to them since them, and now i like them very much. although i liked New American Gospel more in the begining because of the drumming, now not so much now because the i think the vocals were bad.

although most of the riffs in their 2nd and 3rd are similar, Sacrement fixed that. i really like this CD. specially the song Decending!!

and man Randy just sounds so much better live. when they played with slayer he sounded ten times better than on CD.

Can't believe I haven't already mentioned this! I used to find Lamb of God boring and unoriginal. Untill I saw them live, they are an awesome and energetic live band! Their show really made me like their music a lot more!

fuck...these guys are going on tour in February again, but they aren't coming to Seattle. However, they are coming to Spokane, Washington and Portland, Oregon, which are both about 4 hour drives. I've been to countless metal shows and I have yet to see a band put on a better show than Lamb of God. I'm seriously thinking about going to this....

Anyone else planning on going to one of their shows?

Edit: ok...I just realized that Trivium will be touring with them. Fuck that...I don't even want to be in the same building as Trivium fans. Guess I won't be going.
