    It has no real edge. It kinda feels like "metal-by-numbers".

    Also, vox are WAY too loud.

    I'd love to agree with you, but he kinda stopped being interesting around Sacrament.

    Also started with Sacrament. I swear, that was the album that destroyed LoG.

    Asskicking music as always. I'd like this much better without the vocals, I think I just outgrew this kind of thing. These guys are really good at what they do, though.

    It's definitely got a lot more generic and less idiosyncratic. Adler's drumming not only added a particular groove but also a tonal element. Using a power piccolo snare and all those stupid fast quads he'd slip in everywhere was a hugely identifiable feature.

    They seem to be doing what all bands do once they're however-many albums down the line; they sound like an exercise that comes with a guitar magazine. "Learn riffs in the style of X!" Gojira did that about 3 albums ago which is around the time I switched off. This sounds like a track "in the style of Lamb of God".

    I like Lamb of God, I own two of their albums, the track was sorta cool.

    But honestly, criticizing any Lamb of God track for being "paint by numbers" is like saying, "The new Fast and Furious movie was cool, but I don't like the fact it featured cars".

    Also, YMMV, but I would be perfectly OK with never hearing another track in Double Harmonic Minor (although it goes by a lot of names, sometimes "egyptian" or "byzantine") as long I live. You know, where you flatten the 2nd and raise the 3rd, relative to the regular harmonic minor scale. (Although technically it's called double harmonic minor because you replaced the first tetrachord with a different one) The entire point of that is that it sounds "exotic", but it became so overused it is now the opposite of exotic.



    It just makes any metal sound like it was written in ~2008, when it was at maximum popularity. (Demonstrated here, particularly at 1:30 ish)



    Although Nile still can use it for obvious reasons. They kind of get grandfather claus'd in on that one.

    I think Chris's drumming is a huge part of what made LOG sound so linear and similar from song to song, album to album. I'll be curious to hear how the rest of this album sounds.
