I'm always a bit sceptical about how a metal band can still produce great music when they become well-known, but this album proved me wrong.
The songs are technical but maintain a harsh edge to them. Randy's vocals are intense but have a rich clarity to them. Critics often claim that LOG songs sound strickingly similar but I cannot see how the opening track sounds like any of the rest of the album.
For me the standout tracks are: Walk With Me In Hell, More Time To Kill, Redneck and Blacken The Cursed Sun.
To me this is a great album and is the perfect soundtrack to any task that requires an "angry" approach, like training in a gym, tearing down a wall with a sledgehammer or overthrowing a small country with a band of mercenaries may be...
The only reason that I did not give this five stars is because not every track is a firm favourite, and I cannot help but feel we have not heard the best that Lamb of God has to offer yet. Still, they are a great band and I am really looking forward to hearing Wrath this month. My advice to any metal fan: buy this!
