Lamb of God – Hourglass (The Anthology)

Posted: January 28, 2011 in Music

Back in 1995, I was working in a little record store in Denver, CO when I stumbled upon a CD from a band called Burn The Priest. I had never heard of them before, but the album cover (click to view) was awesome. I was just getting into real heavy metal at the time, after years of Poison, Dokken, Ratt, and all the other 80’s bands that had grown decidedly old.

After the first listen, my musical taste was changed forever. I eagerly awaited a new album from the band. Years passed until 2000, when the band, under the new name Lamb of God released it’s debut album New American Gospel. American Heavy metal had a new contender to the throne.

Countless tours and five albums later, Lamb of God has risen to the top of the heavy metal world. Their unique style and vocals have won fans over worldwide, and have thrust the band into legendary status held by few, if any, groups in the metal scene.

Unlike many of their American counterparts, Lamb of God produce an excellent live show, staying true to their metal roots, while somehow capturing the audiences with their stage presence and musicianship. Often compared to such legendary acts as Slayer and Pantera, LoG has brought their own style to the prom we call heavy metal, and I’ll take the first dance.
