  Breakneck metal!

Intense, heavy, mental... Lamb Of God.
If Pantera mixed with The Haunted... this is what you'll get! AOTW is easily their finest album too. Music to murder to!

  Pure METAL!

In 2004 there were a few big metal albums including Slipknots Subliminal Verses and Killswitch Engage's The End of Heartache but when it comes to pure, in-your-face metal, few albums topped this. Combining the meaty riffs of New American Gospel with the aggressivness of As the Palaces Burn, Lamb of God were onto a winning formula here. Laid to Rest, Hourglass and Now You've Got Something To Die For are among the best opening sequence of songs on a modern metal album and with songs like Omerta, Blood of the Scribe and One Gun they proved they could mix it up with the best. A brilliant slab of red-blooded metal!

  Metal as it should be.

People will argue about metal genre, what it represents, how it should sound, how it's defined, which is " the greatest" metal band etc.Lamb of God, it seems don't give a **** about all that stuff.They don't try to "copy","beat" or "surpass" some other band.They simply play the music they like, and we all enjoy the results.One of those results is "Ashes of the Wake", yet another amazing album.With every song being original, both lyricaly and instrumentaly, and having unique "feel" to it.There's aren't any "fillers","less good" or bad song, they're all amazing and distinctive.Recommended to all metal fans regardles of their preferences.

  Not even funny how good this is

| | See all ReallyFatman's reviews (20)

The band's fourth full length album, if you include burn the priest, is the very one that fired them into the mainstream of metal. And if you take your evidence from these eleven slices of supreme goodness, Rightly so.

Obviously the first three tracks here are classics, each embeded in lamb of god's setlist.

But it's on tracks like Omerta and Remorse is for the dead that the feel of this album comes across, although palaces may have been full of confidence, this displays the kind of attitude Lamb of god have been wanting to show.

Evidently Randy Blythe in ways, paeks on this record and the instrumental track Ashes of the wake, boasts the musicianship of Mark Morton, Willie Addler and friends...

Overall, if you claim to call yourself a fan of metal, and have not heard this album BUY BEG OR STEAL A COPY RIGHT NOW.

And, enjoy.

Although Lamb Of God's previous efforts were good, this is the album that heralded the coming of the new kings of metal. Intricate riffing, and pounding drums, coupled with the growl of Randy Blythe's vocals, make this an absolutely essential album for any metal fan!

  Essential Metal

This album is really when LOG hit the mainstream.
I kick ass album that will have you headbanging and begging for more all the way through.
Mortion and Willie's once again create some of the greatest riff's of all time, Chris once again proves he's one of modern days best drummers, Blythe's vocals are as demonic as ever and relibale Campbell slaps down them heavy bass lines time and time again.
Every song could be a release single.
Must have for any metal fan

  Masterpiece

| | See all AdamPS3's reviews (12)

Crushingly heavy. Astonishingly beautiful. One of the greatest metal albums of all time. Laid To Rest is a metal anthem that should be hailed as genius. Phenomenal.

  Pure and Perfect

| | See all 1plus22makes23's reviews (6)

Lamb of God are one of those rare beasts that simply do not release anything less than total perfection. If you like uncompromising, brutal metal, buy this and LoG will be your favourite band within a week.
