Product Description

2012 release from the Metal favorites. Resolution is the follow up to their Grammy nominated album Wrath. Produced by Josh Wilbur, the album features 14 songs and comes in a deluxe softpak with artwork by longtime art director Ken Adams. Resolution is a 100 percent trend-free and intelligently constructed album that could power a small country with its unstoppable energy and potent riffery. Guitarist Mark Morton says that "unlike any other album before, this album was written over the course of a couple of years, at least with the guitars. Willie and I starting songwriting as soon as we started touring Wrath." As a result, Resolution boasts some of the most Punk Rock moments and some of the bluesiest moments of the band's recorded career, perhaps fostered along by the liveliness of the writing-on-the-road process. The album was recorded in various studios in Virginia and New York.

HASH(0xa5839354) out of 5 stars Power, Groove, Thrash....Lamb of God Has It All Jan. 24 2012
By J. Hill - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lamb of God's new album will not surprise either fans of the band or people just getting into them. They seem to be a band who've found what kind of music they want to play, and are perfectly content right now to keep doing that. Some people might rush to judgment and call their formula stale, or claim they aren't growing. Sometimes when I hear that about Lamb of God or any other metal band I wonder what people want; are all metal bands supposed to "grow" and "progress" so much on every album that they eventually reach a point where their sound is unrecognizable to their own fans? I say this because, while some bands do lose their creativity after one or two brilliant albums, a certain few have the ability to stay mostly within a particular genre and continually produce songs that sound fresh, energetic, new, driven, etc. They become something better than predictable; they become dependable. Overkill comes to mind, or Pantera when they were around, or certain extreme bands like Napalm Death. I don't identify myself as a major Lamb of God fan since I'm only familiar with two of their previous releases, so I can't give a full-scale account of their history. I just know that today they're generally lumped in with other successful modern metal acts like Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Killswitch Engage, Hatebreed, Chimaira, and a few others. Having heard some of the music of all those bands, I have to say that listening to Lamb of God in comparison to the other forerunners of today's metal puts them squarely in the lead in my opinion. They sound the most confident and skilled in their particular niche, and unapologetic in their dedication to a sound they're determined to have, regardless of where the trends are headed. Lamb of God is a good band to have around representing heavy music, as they seem bound to produce albums of solid, thrash-based, groove-fueled metal.

As for individual songs, none of the tracks is noticeably weaker than the rest, and each offers a variety of groove and speed. Randy Blythe's vocals are an acquired taste, one of those elements you're either going to love or hate, but as a fan of extreme metal, I think he has much less of a generic scream/roar than any of the modern bands mentioned above, with the exception of Dez from DevilDriver. The album's opening track, Straight for the Sun, is cool, starting things off with a slow, doomy riff, and the song itself is actually a slow crawl leading into the up-tempo second track, Desolation. The next couple songs, Ghost Walking and Guilty, are both impressive, with a good mix of strong riffs and different speeds. Guilty and Cheated are the two fastest on the album, but neither is about just pure speed. The tenth song, Insurrection, is probably my early favorite, as it seems to have more of a dynamic build-up than the rest, more of an epic quality. The album closer, King Me is a bit different, with some operatic background singing and orchestral instrumentation, but it doesn't come across as overly ambitious or pretentious, especially placed at the very end. Every song on Resolution, including King Me, boasts great riffs that do sometimes remind me of Dime, and sometimes of Killswitch, but the songs still sound like Lamb of God. I wouldn't call them particularly original, but some bands are just good at writing metal songs, and I think this is one of them. They haven't changed much, but they aren't one of those bands that sounds tired, hashing out more of the same old thing to earn a paycheck. Resolution will absolutely please their hardcore fans, but anyone into metal in general like me will probably hear a little something extra in Lamb of God than other current bands they're mentioned alongside. This new release is a solid delivery of aggression and power, offering one good song after another. In fact, as far as metal goes, you might say it's very dependable.

HASH(0xa58393a8) out of 5 stars A little of this, and a little more of this Jan. 24 2012
By w - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not going to breakdown the entire album track by track, but my initial thoughts were "Wow, this is awesome!!" It has many of the elements you love about LOG. There are some nice breakdowns, some more interesting vocals. Randy and Chris have both improved most noticeably in my opinion, but I'm a drummer so I gravitate toward the drums initially. Also, I have only listened to the cd critically once and two other times casually. I like a lot of the riffs, though some of their really 'classic' hooks that made some of their past albums so great aren't quite there. The album overall is strong though, and has for the most part a constant driving groove. There are some nice rhythmic patterns played as a group that have a great feel. Sometimes in the past I have felt that some of their songs were too 'rigid' in groove. I'm not looking for funk, but it's nice when even thrash metal can find a pocket and break out of that ultra-straight feel. There is a bit of a monotonous undertone to the album that you walk away with though. They did try some breakdowns and experimental vocals, but it seems like they just want to dip their toes in the water with anything that can be seen as a departure from their genre. I usually judge albums based on how much they reside in the brain afterward, how quickly addicted I get to them, and if they stand the test of time. Take Primus' Sailing the Seas of Cheese. Still listening to it. Tool's Aenima. Still in rotation. I may go away from them, but eventually they end up in rotation and overtime at least personally become 'classic' to me. This is a solid album, though I think most fans would agree that we were hoping for something bigger, some great departure that took LOG to some next level beyond in a great way without doing a disservice to their roots. That time will have to wait. I didn't immediately take to Wrath either though, but it grew on me more and more and eventually I had to stop listening to it for fear that I'd play it to death for myself.

HASH(0xa58397e0) out of 5 stars A brutal return to form Jan. 24 2012
By musicrocks - Published on
This album is Lamb of God, almost exactly what you would expect. If you are already a LoG fan, this album is a must have, though if you do not like previous LoG albums, I doubt this album will change your views.

Musically, Resolution is clearly distinct from previous albums, and finds a sweet spot between raw recordings and overproduction. There are a few guitar solos (surprisingly) and a beautiful symphonic closing. Randy has incredible vocals as always. In short, this is Lamb of God doing exactly what they do best.

HASH(0xa583975c) out of 5 stars Great consistent album from a great consistent band Feb. 19 2012
By choppman68 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am probably a bit older than most LOG fans, I'm 44 and I was around at the beginning of the whole thrash movement in the early 80's. That said, when the first wave of thrash metal went south in the early 90's, needless to say, it was not a great decade for metal heads like myself. What I always valued above all with any band that I am into, is, consistency, Metallica and Slayer delivered with their first 4 and ( Slayer ) 5 releases respectively, with others like Megadeth, Anthrax, Death Angel, Exodus, and Testament, all releasing some great albums, and honestly, some lackluster lp's as well. Fast forward from 1990 about 12 years, and, after suffering through a decade of alt rock and grunge, ( although I did like AIC and Soundgarden ) with only Pantera and a few of the Swedish Death/Thrash acts to wet my whistle, I was up late one night after work and caught the video for Black Label on MTV. I INSTANTLY loved the music, but to be honest, Randy's style was a bit to harsh for me. I bought the disc anyway, and just LOVED the music. Back then even with the internet, there wasnt as much info as you would find on a new band these days. I read in Guitar World that they were working on a new record and would be touring that spring. I was very excited, so, about 1 month before "as the palaces burns" hit the shelves, they played a crappy club in Louisville Ky, called "tek world" there were MAYBE 75 people there, mostly kids that would show uo for any show regardless of who it was, few if any really knew who LOG were, anyway, they were passing out free promo cd's that had "Ruin" and "Eleventh Hour" outside the venue, I grabbed one, went to the car and popped it in before showtime, and I was BLOWN AWAY by how much better the riffs and ESPECIALLY the vocals were. I knew then, that this band had a chance to make a mark in Metal, and they have. My thoughts upon the full release of Palaces was that it reminded me of the more progressive elements of Puppets, Justice, Rust in Peace, and some Testament, only in shorter more concise songs. I thought that would be their trajectory into longer pieces, but, with Ashes, they started streamlining some, and have continued down that path all the way up to Wrath.
Now, for Resolution, I think they have taken the best elements of their previous 6 albums and laid them out over these 14 tracks. If your a LOG fan, theres nothing here not to like. Its a great modern thrash metal record. I think LOG have really distanced themselves over their perceived peers such as Shadows Fall, Killswitch, etc. I do like both of those bands along with Mastodon, but for me, LOG are the only band from the "New wave of American Metal" that have really stuck true to what they do they do best. They are ALL exceptional musicians and, the lyric tandem of Blythe/ Morton write some of the greatest most insightful lyrics in all of Metal. And as far as releasing consistently great albums and songs, has ANY Metal band been any better or more prolific since 2000? I cant think of any. Hell, it takes Metallica 12 years to release TWO records and one of them ( St. Anger ) SUCKS!! I did think Death Magnetic was better than anything since Justice, but I digress. Back to the whole consistency thing, I dont mind when a band I love takes some chances here and there, but I would like them to stay in the BALLPARK of what I love about them in the first place! Seems all the bands I have ever been REALLY into, at some point, take a big left turn that makes me ask "why?" All the way back to Sabbath, the first 6 albums, masterpieces, then you get Technical Ecstasy. Metallica awesome first 4, then you get the Black Album, which didnt suck, but it wasnt what I wanted or really needed from them as a fan. With these guys, I can get excited when the release something new, because I KNOW i am going to get some great thrash metal from them. Are they progressing and blazing new trails? Nope, but honestly, with what we Metal fans have seen from some of the best bands in the past, do we really WANT them trying to blaze new trails? I for one dont. If your a LOG fan, you will love Resolution period

HASH(0xa5839c84) out of 5 stars The most consistent band does it again Jan. 27 2012
By Nicholas DiMucci - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lamb of God is a band of consistency. Album after album, they stick to a formula that has been working for them, and they don't dare to stray too far away from it. And you know what? It's a damn good formula and no one executes it better than Lamb of God. Resolution is a continuation of this formula of relentlessness attack of thrash and groove metal. Resolution represents the refinement of Lamb of God's sound, yet they manage to expand on their formula, ever so slightly, with tracks like King Me. It'd be interesting to see Lamb of God more fully explore these new ideas, but with a band so powerful, and down right heavy as Lamb of God, they don't need to, at least not yet.

With so many metal bands boldly alienating their core fans by releasing albums that make them virtually unrecognizable (I'm looking at you Opeth), it's reassuring to know at least one band is sticking to their guns.
