2.5 averageRobert Garland STAFF | June 10th 20

Having some really mixed opinions on this. On one hand, Lamb of God's self-titled is cohesive - but it lacks all the flourishes and fluidity that made Ashes Of The Wake or As The Palaces Burn such stringent hits. The absence of Adler behind the kit is noticeable, stripping down some of the fundamental signatures that removed this band from a host of sound-hugging acts. Tracks like "Gears" and "Resurrection Man" resort to chug-a-long passages, doing away with the noodle Morton riffs. It's a shame because Blythe sounds particularly on point.

Seems pretty average and a little uninspired. As someone else mentioned, Blythe's vocals are on
point though. I wish Lamb of God would get a little more experimental with their formula at this
point. Its just starting to sound tired.

I'm not normally enthused so much with groove metal - but a good friend loved them (not sure about now, though)... I already had heard As the Palaces Burn because of Dev's production wizardry; where I thought at first - "oh no not another Anselmo angster" ...but, I adjusted to his voice later when hearing Sturm und Drang and Resolution... also, I wasn't too thrilled with Mark Morton's solo album, but I only heard it once, so I should give it another go at some point because - his work here is (relatively) outstanding and Blythe, as another rater (if it's not a word, it should be lol) acknowledged his sublime performance - and I am talkin/typin for too long (my apologies for the babble-ramble) bottom line: some things like song-to-song transition and minor production issues could have used a little more tending to - but these flaws did not hinder my enjoyment one bit. one of the stronger LoG records IMO.

3.0 goodSinNanna | December 8th 20

To say I've never been a fan of this band would be a total lie, because at one point during my mid high-school years they used to be one of my favourites, and I pretty much enjoyed everything from 1999's Burn The Priest up until 2012's Resolution. At a certain point however, I grew out of a notable portion of my music rotation, and Lamb Of God where one of those bands as well. Because of this, I skipped over 2015's VII: Sturm Und Drang, as I was way past my point of caring and the clean vocals frontman Randy Blythe was starting to incorporate in the teaser track only steered me away even further from wanting to listen to it. With the follow up to that album, morbid curiosity and nostalgia got the best of me and I wanted to know what the boys were up to, and the answer is doing what they've always done. It's certainly not on the level of some of their better records like As The Palaces Burn or Ashes Of The Wake, but not awful either. It's just sort of average, with the expected groovy, thrashy, metalcore inspired riffage, Randy's always recognizable mid-range growl and the occasional dramatic bits of spoken word and melodic lead guitar solo thrown in on certain tracks as well. I particularly don't care for certain passages on some of these tracks, like the ones where a guest appearance is made, or where Randy does his croak-y and overacted spoken word bits or another attempt at singing. This record is decently dynamic and catchy enough to not be entirely boring, but also very unsurprising and just feels like the band playing it pretty safe two decades into their career.

I feel compelled to chug monster energy to this

3.0 goodBRAman22 | June 21st 20

It's a Lamb of God album to be sure. None of the riffs or hooks caught me quite like most of their other releases, but I could definitely see this growing with multiple listens.

4.0 excellentSoilworker90 | June 20th 20

I don't know what's everyone's problem with this
one. Sure, it's not LOG's very best output, but it's
still heavy, full of power, enjoyable and, most
important of all, 100% Lamb Of God. I like it.
Recommended listening: 'Memento Mori', 'Gears',
'Reality Bath', 'Resurrection Man'

3.0 goodGamamJ | June 11th 20

I mean, it is Lamb of God. Groovy, melodic, slightly metalcore influenced. Blythe?d signature vicals are in place, but the elephant in the room is how they do without Adler. The answer? Alright. Is his snare and style missed? Yes, but Cruz does a solid job of filling in.
