EDITORS’ NOTES

Ashes of the Wake is a quintessentially American metal album: tight and efficient, with a clear emphasis on visceral impact. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler possess a deep arsenal of intricate time-signature changes and technical progressions, yet they’re always in service of the group’s relentless grooves. Howler Randy Blythe couldn’t care less about dragons and wizards; on “What I’ve Become” and “Hourglass,” he’s too busy tearing at the scabs of his own alienation. Bad-vibes music for suburban nihilists doesn’t get any better.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

i'm giving this album 5 stars because Lamb of God is awesome, but WHEN A SONG SAYS "EXPLICIT" IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE EXPLICIT!! you guys are so lame itunes,get the explicit version,not this edited crap

Why iTunes Why?!?

It's pretty weird to be listening to a great record by Lamb Of God and then to hear the swear words cut out, even though it says "Explicit", this is not true. I didn't know Wal-Mart was taking over iTunes!
