How Can Lamb of God Possibly Be This Good?

I have not a fucking clue. Their recently-released slab of brutality, Wrath, is so good it's sickening. No metal band since Pantera has been able to groove, thrash and write legitimately fantastic songs and hooks like this. As mentioned in a few recent interviews, singer Randall Blythe has upped his game once more, adapting a very Testament-esque Chuck Billy vocal technique in a few spots, which balance seamlessly with his usual gutteral razor-throated growl.

This is an easy early candidate for album of the year. Easy.

No more talk. Buy this shit.

"Set To Fail":
