“Although there’s plenty of LAMB OF GOD’s trademark guitar chug and Olympics-level drumming, the eerier moments (see the jailhouse tale “512”) and unexpected guests (including members of Deftones and the Dillinger Escape Plan) show a group that’s thirsty to evolve beyond its own established patterns.” – Kory Grow, Rolling Stone

“…LAMB OF GOD have made one of their most alluring albums in years.” – Grayson Currin, Pitchfork

“”VII: Sturm und Drang“, for all of its polish and bows to melody, is one of the fiercest albums they’ve ever laid down… This album is a full-on purge and if you can relate, “VII: Sturm und Drang” will get you off in more ways than one.” – Ray Van Horn Jr., Blabbermouth.net

 “…their much-ballyhooed seventh album arrives sounding like a band reborn… their best album in more than a decade.” – Adrien Begrand, Decibel Magazine

LAMB OF GOD‘s return with VII: Sturm und Drang [Epic Records] is a flawless fire and brimstone blast. This is heavy music forged in flames of raw emotion and experience in the most unbridled manner. The group… carve out a rapturously heavy and unsettlingly hypnotic space that’s easy to fall into. This is the band’s most simultaneously atomic and atmospheric body of work to date.” – Rick Florino, ArtistDirect.com

“From the brooding dynamics of “Overlord” and “Embers” to the more expected savagery of “Erase This” and “Delusion Pandemic”, LAMB OF GOD sound more focused than ever here, and thoroughly deserving of their status as one of metal’s biggest bands.” – Dom Lawson, The Guardian

“The band’s newest work finds them continuing to find the fine balance between sinister thrash and metallic catchiness on standout tracks like “Overlord” and “Erase This”.” – Jason Roche, OC Weekly

“…another solid addition to the LAMB OF GOD catalogue.” – Bradley Zorgdrager, Exclaim! Magazine

 

Recently, LAMB OF GOD released their official music videos for “Overlord” and “512”, both directed by Jorge Torres-Torres. Watch both videos here: “512” | “Overlord”

 

ABOUT LAMB OF GOD:
Richmond, VA natives LAMB OF GOD originally formed in 1994 as Burn The Priest while in college together at Virginia Commonwealth University, initially performing in meagre venues and hocking rough demos amongst the local scene. In 1998, the band changed their moniker to LAMB OF GOD, which would mark their impending ascension to top-tier status, as well as one of the only tangible career deviations that the band would ever undertake – having consistently released chart-topper after chart-topper while maintaining a true and constant line-up of members and increasingly growing fanbase; a rarity in modern music. The band’s first major release, 2000’s New American Gospel, was immediately touted as an instant metal classic. AllMusic stated it best, “The essential signatures of post-Pantera metal are in abundance on Lamb of God’s inaugural album. New American Gospel provides a mighty oak upon which gritty American metal’s faith is maintained, effectively bridging the ’90s’ insistence upon drill-sergeant technicality and the old school’s determined focus on riff construction.”

In 2007, just a short time after putting out monumentally successful releases Ashes of the Wake (Album, 2004, #27 of 200 debut), Killadelphia (DVD, 2004, RIAA Platinum), and Sacrament (Album, 2006, #8 of 200 debut), LAMB OF GOD was honored with a Grammy nomination for the track “Redneck”. This would mark the first of four Grammy nominations for the band. After the release of Walk With Me In Hell (DVD, 2008), the second and third Grammy nominations came in 2010 and 2011 for tracks “Set to Fail” and “In Your Words”, both cut from Wrath (CD, 2009, #2 of 200 debut). The fourth nomination arrived for the band’s track “Ghost Walking”, cut from their 2012 album Resolution (CD, #3 of 200 debut). With the release of VII: Sturm Und Drang, the five-piece have proven their lasting consistency by offering another blistering contribution of the highest quality heavy metal – a record that no one other than LAMB OF GOD could truly execute.

Having amassed the globe with countless world tours and millions of albums sold, all-the-while overcoming countless hurdles ranging from personal demons to vocalist Randy Blythe’s 2013 trial in Prague (which resulted in the acclaimed 2014 full-length feature documentary, As The Palaces Burn, and book, Dark Days: A Memoir, authored by the frontman), LAMB OF GOD stands the test of time as the biggest, most influential heavy metal band of the new millennium.

Randy Blythe – vocals
Mark Morton – guitar
