It’s been five years since LAMB OF GOD’s last release and this ‘self-titled’ album could be their best to date. Bringing in new drummer, Art Cruz, has made the band sound more vital with a new level of groove and aggression.
‘Memento Mori’ opens the proceedings with heavy dark atmospheres, before kicking the doors down with a brutal riff that gives way to a moshing that can only be LAMB OF GOD. True to us all, the mental torture of every day life “A depression fed by overload, False perceptions, the weight of the world” you can feel the sensory and emotional torment. ‘Checkmate‘ ups the anti with a brutal slab of thrash that screams for a circle pit to break out. A two finger salute to the manipulative establishment, powers that be. Single ‘New Colossal Hate’ is a real high point harmoniously, showcasing just how impressively Art Cruz and bass player John Campbell have gelled into a formidable rhythm section, combined with a faultless vocal performance by Randy Blythe.
