Resolution [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
On their seventh outing, Resolution, Lamb of God prove once again that the right ratio of barnstorming riffs and relentless intensity is all you need to make a solid album. Where Lamb of God -- among the last real practitioners of the dying art of groove metal -- really succeed here is in the simplicity of their approach, shying away from modern studio trickery in favor of a rawer sound that doesn't make any attempts to smooth the edges off of anything. With a little ring of the snare drum here and there and some extra-crunchy guitar tones, the album has a natural feeling that sets these veteran players apart from the ultra-polished sounds some of the younger bands go ...

On their seventh outing, Resolution, Lamb of God prove once again that the right ratio of barnstorming riffs and relentless intensity is all you need to make a solid album. Where Lamb of God -- among the last real practitioners of the dying art of groove metal -- really succeed here is in the simplicity of their approach, shying away from modern studio trickery in favor of a rawer sound that doesn't make any attempts to smooth the edges off of anything. With a little ring of the snare drum here and there and some extra-crunchy guitar tones, the album has a natural feeling that sets these veteran players apart from the ultra-polished sounds some of the younger bands go for. Resolution feels like metal made in the old ways, with guitars being played through amps rather than modeling modules, and drums that are live instead of programmed. Rather than feeling like an indictment of the more heavily processed stuff that's been on the rise, the album serves more as a reminder that sometimes simpler is better, and that sometimes all you need to make a good album is some flaming hot guitar work, thundering double bass drumming, and a whole lot of screaming.

    Awesome!

    Comparatively, Ashes of the Wake is still my favorite Lamb of God album, but after listening through Resolution, it has officially become my 2nd favorite selection by Lamb of God...Wrath being my 3rd favorite. For me though, that's about my list of albums I really like by Lamb of God. I honestly was not a huge fan of their early stuff, and there are only a select few songs I even care for off Sacrament. Anyway, not to get too far off the beaten track, I was really looking forward to the new Lamb of God album. I've played Ashes of the Wake and Wrath almost to death, though I still love those albums, but it was about time for something new from the fellas, and this album delivered wonderfully. Lovin it! If you're a Lamb of God or metal fan in general, this is a great metal offering. Check it out! Furthermore, if you're just a metal fan in general and have never really listened much to Lamb of God (I'd find it hard to believe), then I recommend Ashes of the Wake, Wrath, and Resolution. Great metal albums! >XD
