Lamb of God - Sacrament Review

by Jeff K.

.
Lamb of God's 4th full length, "Sacrament", is a nonstop lesson in the current state of metal. This 5 piece from Virginia makes one thing clear; they aren't any one of a countless subgenre's of metal, they are straight up, in-your-face metal, stripped of any excessive labels that so tirelessly surround so many bands these days.

"Sacrament" screams out of the gate with the opening track "Walk With Me In Hell". The songs sucks the listener in and prepares them for the onslaught that is to come. Weaving in and out between tracks, there is rarely a low point. A few times throughout the cd the riffs seem to get a little stale, but never so much that interest is lost in the album.

Easily one of the most intense and strong tracks on the album is "Descending". Randy Blythe's vocals are strong, the guitar work is on point, and Adler's drumming is spot on as well. It would be hard to find a metal song so sonically tight as "Descending" in any of the recent incarnations of metal bands existing today.

Overall, Lamb of God's "Sacrament" is about a solid a metal album as one can find. While it's not necessarily album of the year material, it is strong enough that should any metal fan pass it up, they'd be making a mistake.
