Review: Lamb Of God – “Resolution”

Posted in Headline/Showcase with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2012 by A.R. Gervais

After three years since their album, “Wrath”, one would expect another mind blowing display of technicality and fist-fight inducing rhythms from this Virginia five piece, and rightly so they would not be disappointed.

Providing another decent thrashing, “Resolution” opens with a scream as harsh as their themed message , the downfall of humanity through over industrialization (a theme present in previous albums as well) followed by a slow but brutal ballad. The album throughout offers a standard reminiscent of “Wrath”, but with a crux of it’s own that makes your ears plead for more. I tried to find a negative in this but was hard pressed; in fact I found the more I wrote the more only a grotesque display of ass kissing would come out into words. Oh well, Lamb of God has certainly earned it.

With a release on Jan. 24 and a third place on the official ARIA chart, there’s no doubt these Virginian sons of metal are back in full force, glory and all. Recorded in their home state with producer John Wilbur for a second time since “Wrath” and released around the world through Roadrunner Records, “Resolution” has pleased (or, at least, is projected to please) over fifty thousand U.S citizens within its first seven days, which is not too far from the mark of their previous sixty eight thousand back in 2009 (“Wrath”). A definite worthy investment for any fan of metal and sure as shit to give you a chub.
