"Wrath" so der Name des neuen Lamb of God Krachers - hier ist der Name wahrlich Programm. Denn was da nach einem schön ruhigen Intro namens "The Passing" aus den Boxen ballert, ist wahrlich nicht von schlechten Eltern. Nach einem eher melodiöseren Weg auf dem Vorgänger, geht man hier mit purer Brachialität zu Werke. Hier hat offenbar jemand eine ganze Menge angestauter Wut, die in wilden Thrashpassagen gespickt mit Breaks abgelassen werden muss und ganz klar erkennen lassen, dass LOG in der NWOAHM eine ganz große Nummer sind. So wüst das auch klingen mag, so ist "Wrath" sicherlich eines nicht: völlig sinnloses Geknüppel, denn ihre Versiertheit in punkto Songwriting und an den Instrumenten stellt der Fünfer aus Richmond, Virginia, eindrucksvoll unter Beweis. Trotz Geballer wie "Set To Fail" oder dem folgenden "Contractor" nimmt man aber immer wieder auch mal den Fuß vom Gas und zeigt, dass man in balladesken Passagen ebenfalls ganz stark unterwegs ist ("Grace"), ebenso im Grooven ("Dead Seeds"). Schön zu sehen, dass es auch noch Bands gibt, die nicht auf Nummer sicher gehen und einen einmal eingeschlagenen Weg beibehalten, nur um die Plattenverkäufe konstant zu halten, sondern auch mal, wie hier, einen Richtungswechseln einschlagen, den Fans der Vorgängerscheibe ganz schön vor den Kopf stoßen könnte.

Für mich definitiv jetzt schon ein heißer Anwärter auf eines der stärksten Alben des Jahres - oder sollte ich sagen: Hassbolzen?! Wer die Truppe bisher noch nicht auf seinem Radar hatte, sollte das hiermit mal nachholen.

Und noch ein begeisterter STALKER:
Die Übersetzung folgt in Kürze! Die Redaktion. Hier zunächst die Englische Version:
Lamb of God is thankfully continuing on what it does best; technical guitars and kick-ass drums accompanied with great vocals. The new album is not perfect, but somewhat close to it. After listening to the album a couple of million times for reviewing purposes, I feel like listening purely for enjoying the music. The drummer, Chris Adler had stated that the new album would be heavier, and that it is.

One thing which must be said of the album is that there are some parts which sound like they were purposely made for moshpits; the riffs are hammered down with wrath and one can taste the rage in the air. Though Word refuses acknowledge the word “moshpit”, the songs will produce many.

Some tracks on the record are great, for instance “Set to Fail”. The alternating tempo keeps one glued into the song, the chorus is catchy and instrumentally it is great. In songs like “Grace” the technicality of LoG shines through perfectly with wonderfully interwoven drums and guitars. A humour element is also found within the album, more specifically in the 4th track, “Contractor”. The track starts off with a hillbilly whoop and strange as it seems, some of the riffs somehow sound jovial and the sounds here show similarities to Zimmer´s Hole.

The album as a whole has its defects. On occasion it is too easy to forget that the album is playing; where is succeeds in drawing in the attention, it similarly fails to hold on to the attention of the audience. Probably the most common err for LoG has been its tendency for repetitiveness, the lack of differentiation between the songs. Sadly most of the songs which differ the most -like Fake Messiah- are also the worst; they´re definitely not horrible though.

In the end, there are some twists in listening to the latest production of a bigger band; the expectations are higher and the pressure grows. The classic example is what happened to Metallica after the Black Album; compared to their previous greatness, the fall was pure horror. In comparison to their older albums, “Wrath” is good, but not the pinnacle of their production because I believe that with their capabilities, they could produce even better results. Huge props are due to the fact that after gaining fame, Lamb of God had the option of going softer to reach the commercial dollars, but they chose to go the pure way. If you like the band, you must get the album; though it has its defects, it has moments of pure genius. (Ozzy Aikas)
