Lamb of God’s “Wrath” Turns Ten Years Old

As the chaotic decade of the aughts was closing down, metal’s upper echelon of bands was never in better hands.

The upper tier of genre greats were struggling to find themselves, so along with other leaders of the era such as Mastodon, Gojira, Amon Amarth, and Machine Head, LoG spearheaded a new generation. The five albums (and one live album/DVD) the band put down in ten years really each marked their own distinct high point for the band.

Lamb of God was coming off of their brutal New American Gospel (Prosthetic) album after transition from their debut album as Burn The Priest.

Lamb Of God – The Duke

lamb-of-god-the-duke-ep-ghostcultmag

While you may be aware of Lamb of God’s status of one of the leaders of American metal for over fifteen years, you may not know how passionate the members of the band are about their fellow people. Perhaps that doesn’t matter to you, and you only like your music without the entanglement of human affairs included with your “bree bree bree” death vocals. Maybe music is your ultimate escape from the coils of life and you’d rather not think about the hard stuff. Continue reading
