Default Lamb of God - Resolution (2012)

Resolution by Lamb of God (2012)

Sick album. Chris Adler is his normal bad-ass self on the kit and does mind-blowing things, Morton and Adler are sensational and brilliant on guitars and Randy Blythe's voice is as great as it's ever been.

When I first heard LoG when they were Burn the Priest, I thought the band was wicked but though Randy's voice was a little raw and undeveloped. By the time As Palaces Burn came out, he was much better and more polished. He has worked with some great metal voice coaches and producers that have really helped him. Now he is one of my favorite singers.

On a 1-10 I give this a 8.5, maybe a 9. The band is smooth and cohesive as always, like a well-oiled machine who plays in perfect synchronization and absolutely jam and kill it on this latest album.

Lamb of God is without question my favorite metal band. Has been since As Palces Burn and Ashes of the Wake came out. One of the most innovative, unique, tight and beyond bad-ass band out there.

I agree about Randys voice and the progression its taken on, I certainly have always liked the vocals. Their musicianship is always very good. This album just didn't really hit me very hard. I'll listen tonight and see what i've been missing as you seem to like alot of the same music such as myself. I bet your a huge WHAM fan also like me and Janszoon.

Yeah, no need to wake me up before you go go. Just go and take that god-awful album with you.



Yeah, I did love this album. A lot of cool things on it. I would rank it up there with Ashes of the Wake, As Palaces Burn and Sacrament.

I love all three of those albums on a high level, probably only band besides a few Mastodon albums I rank as high as High On Fire. I don't know what i was missing first listen, definitely gonna give this one another go tonight. I was pretty hyped to listen to it, so that may be my problem with it, too high of expectations perhaps.

Gah. One of these days I'll get the energy up to listen to newer Lamb of God. Love their Burn the Priest album, and New American Gospel is brilliant. Easily their best album. I really liked Palaces and Ashes, but have become sort of bored with their whole groove metal side, and Sacrament just bored me to tears. They totally jumped the shark and became one of the most uninteresting bands in mainstream metal with that album, and I haven't had the desire to listen to any of their more recent albums since.

I tried this album again last night. I think the way you feel about Sacrament is the way I feel about this album. It seems like an album loaded entirely of filler off previous albums. I hate to say they mailed it in on this album but it certainly sounds like they have. I think i'll be leaving this one on the shelf for awhile, it really doesn't effect me one way or another, quite bland.

Not even close. You and Batlord have far different preferences in metal and music in general than myself.

I like Sacrament, cause they tried a little more melody, even experimented a bit with post-metal. For me "Wrath" was they're last hoorah, some great stuff, but it really loses steam by the end. Thus far, the couple of track I've heard are not compelling me to get this. Also what's up with the cheap little card sleeve they're selling the cd in? It looks like a wimpy little pop album, ha ha ha. At least deliver it in a freaking digi-pak.

Although I really tried to get into Lamb Of God, it just didn't happen for me. The music didn't have any impact on me and I really struggled with the vocals, which is surprising considering other bands I listen to.
