    Sounds like LoG. Could be off just about any album from the last decade as far as the riffs/vocals IMO. Sometimes it really does feel like they just kinda grab bits and pieces of old songs and jam them together.

    Sounds weird listening to LoG with a full-sized snare.

    It's like they complied every LOG riff into a computer algorithm.

    A lot of notes...not a damn riff. Snare is too loud compared to the bass/kick. So guitares feel thin and separated from the mix

    Their last album bored me to tears, but somehow this is even worse. The heavier part sounds like when people demo shitty amp sims that sound like mesa boogies on youtube and play a "LOG style riff".

    Hard pass

    Just like the first single, a perfectly competent Lamb of God song. Not bad, but I feel like I've heard those exact riffs from them before.

    You just described the last 15 years of their discography.

    Well, after hearing those songs it looks like Chris Adler was right about leaving if he was looking to do something different music-wise.

    They are OK, I think, but LoG are kind of metal's AC/DC at this point. Nothing bad about that, but sometimes they write better songs (just not different songs).

    So what do you guys think about the new album? Seems pretty forgettable to me after one listen.

    Everytime LOG releases another album, I want to hear it, but within a song or 2 remember why I lost interest in them 10+ years ago. It's not that it's bad, it just feels exactly the same.

    The AC/DC comparison is spot on.

    Musically it's alright, but it might be a contender for the cringey lyrics thread. :lol:

    I guess him wanting to do something different meant reliving the late 80s hard rock scene, because holy 1989 does that sound dated as fuck.

    Kind of how I felt after one listen as well. I’ll give it a few more spins I suppose.

    how did we go from Ashes of the Wake and Sacrament to this new album? :(

    they now sound like a B-Tec pub cover band version of their previous selves.

    What a shame.
    Yawnd completely through this new album and actually forced myself to listen to it again in full the following day to make sure I wasnt being harsh.

    This. And with him as far as I can remember claiming that he does not want to do any more "painting by numbers" and all that... at least Lamb of God always sound like Lamb of God, and I don't know any other band that does, not even remotely. This however... listened to the first three songs, and it's just straight from the same "how to write some mid-80s hard rock songs" book that dozens of other bands have their songs from. If that's what he is going for and they're having fun, great. It's probably just that I expected something completely different.
    As for the new LoG record... I actually like that rather a lot so far.

    There’s some moments on the new album I really dig that aren’t paint-by-numbers LoG. Outside of those moments, it’s your standard LoG album.
    There’s also the occasional throwback to Ashes/Palaces here and there.

    Can’t say I miss Chris all that much, Cruz ripped it up without deterring from the band’s sound. There was one blast beat section that was something I hadn’t heard on a LoG record before and I got excited. I think I just got tired of the cranked up/piccolo snare. Chris is outstanding, it’s not to take anything away from him, but I think once he got to the drum sound on Sacrament, it didn’t change.

    I dig the tune with actual singing on it. It’s the not-so-usual LoG stuff that’ll keep me going back to the album.

    Also, I asked Josh Wilbur how he got the bass bomb/808’s on the album via Twitter. At first he said he didn’t really know what he used, so I pointed out 3:21 in “Resurrection Man”, it’s a recording of a studio door closing that he pitched down and threw a shitload of reverb on. Pretty damn cool!
