Review Summary: Dull, uninspired but nothing too shockingly offensive, this is Lamb Of God doing what they always do.

3 of 7 thought this review was well written

Considering they are right at the forefront of the heavy metal scene today, Lamb Of God sure do oppose experimentation. For their last three or four studio albums, the band has consistently played uninspired groove metal riffs with a certain degree of technicality behind them whilst Chris Adler pummels away at his drum kit incessantly and Randy Blythe shrieks his lungs out. This is the formula that has propelled them to the position they are at now, and the band clearly stuck by the good ol' "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" tag with 2012's Resolution. From Randy's intake of breath on Straight For The Sun right through to its closing minute, this is just painting by numbers with Lamb Of God with a couple of shiny new bells and whistles here and there. The riffs are still powerful but uninteresting as Ghost Walking shows off with a main riff somewhat reminiscent of Redneck, whilst almost every track contains the blisteringly quick drumming the band is known for. The Undertow is one of few tracks that could be considered a stand-out, with an above average vocal performance from Randy Blythe, whilst a few clean guitar segments are used during the intro of Ghost Walking and in King Me to spice things up a little. The latter of these two tracks contains some clean singing/spoken word sections over a rather eerie choral effect which is the only moment on this album that is anything but generic Lamb Of God material. Aside from this, you should know exactly what to expect from the band that put out such blatant Pantera-ripoff tracks that bore your mind to numbness as Omerta and Blood Of The Scribe. The riffs are rather monotonous and one-dimensional most the way through whilst the solos just lack memorability. This is nothing special, but nothing awful, as should be expected from them.

"Dull, uninspired but nothing too shockingly offensive"
