In 1990, guitarist Mark Morton, drummer Chris Adler and bassist John Campbell started a band named Burn the Priest.[3] The band members knew each other from the college they were all attending, Virginia Commonwealth University, in Richmond, Virginia.[4] Morton left the band soon after its inception to receive his master's degree. Adler and Campbell replaced Morton with Abe Spear. For the next five years, the band practiced in Adler's house and around Virginia. In 1995, the band released its self-titled first demo. After the demo, Burn the Priest recorded two split albums with Agents of Satan and ZED respectively.[5] After the band's first three demos, Burn the Priest added vocalist Randy Blythe to its line up.[5] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 400 × 600 pixelsFull resolution‎ (1,600 × 2,400 pixels, file size: 695 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File historyClick on a date/time to view the file as it appeared at that time. ...

In 1997, Morton returned to the band.[5] The following year, the band released its first full-length self-titled album, Burn the Priest, through Legion Records. The album was produced by Today Is the Day guitarist and vocalist Steve Austin. Spear left the band, leaving an open position for a guitarist. Adler's brother, Willie Adler, became the band's second guitarist a year later, and a deal with Prosthetic Records was signed.[5] After being banned from playing in certain places (some venue owners believing the band possessed an "evil" name),[6] Burn the Priest changed their name to Lamb of God.

With a new name and label, the band released its second album, New American Gospel, in September 2000.[7] Patrick Kennedy of Allmusic compared the band to Pantera, stating "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."[7] Chris Adler commented: "This is a classic record. We had all the elements come together to make one of the heaviest, yet contagious records of our career. It was difficult to contain us —we didn't even understand at the time what we had created."[8] David Randall Blythe is the vocalist of the band Lamb of God, and he was born on February 21, 1971. ...

Lamb of God toured for two years before releasing its third studio album, As the Palaces Burn, on May 6, 2003. Kirk Miller of Rolling Stone gave the album three out of five stars who wrote that "unlike many of their overreaching, Slipknot-influenced contemporaries, Lamb of God deliver a meticulously crafted metal assault."[9] The album was voted the number one album of 2003 by both Revolver Magazine and Metal Hammer. The band toured on the first Headbangers Ball tour, where they recorded a DVD including live performances and a documentary, titled Terror and Hubris. The DVD was a success, debuting at number 31 on the Billboard Music DVD chart.[10][11] As the Palaces Burn is Lamb of Gods second album, released under Prosthetic in 2003, three years after their previous release, New American Gospel. ... is the 126th day of the year (127th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Lamb of God released Ashes of the Wake in August 2004, which debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200, and sold over 35,000 copies in its first week.[12][13] The album was distributed through the band's new record label, Epic Records. Johnny Loftus of Allmusic praised the album, saying "With the genre getting clogged by PVC goofs and Alice in Chains impersonators, Lamb of God balances the equation of power, rage, tradition, and craft. It kills the filler."[14] The title track of the album featured Testament and ex–Megadeth guitarists Alex Skolnick and Chris Poland, respectively.[14] Ashes of the Wake is Lamb of Gods third full length studio recording, released in 2004, just one year after their previous release, As the Palaces Burn. ...

In August 2006 Lamb of God released its fifth studio album, Sacrament. The album debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 and sold nearly 65,000 copies in its first week of sales, nearly doubling the first week sales of Ashes of the Wake.[12] The album received generally positive reviews, with Cosmo Lee of Stylus Magazine stating, "Sacrament has the band's most memorable songs to date. Musically, there's no fat. The band plays with laser precision and songs move smoothly through riffs and transitions."[20] Ed Thompson of IGN referred to Sacrament "one of the best metal albums of 2006",[21] and Jon Pareles of Blender called it a "speed rush all the way through".[22] For other persons of the same name, see John Campbell. ...

Blythe stated, "you sometimes have to do something special to get kids to even buy an album these days rather than download it."[27] The band is taking a break to write new material throughout 2008 and prepare a new record for release, slated for 2009. The band is negotiating for a new record label to distribute records outside the United States. Chris Adler stated Epic Records in the United States "couldn't be more perfect", but wants a different label for international releases.[28] The band later inked a deal with Roadrunner on 1st May 2008 for distribution outside the United States.[citation needed] The CD-ROM (an abbreviation for Compact Disc Read-Only Memory (ROM)) is a non-volatile optical data storage medium using the same physical format as audio compact discs, readable by a computer with a CD-ROM drive. ...

Musical style

Lamb of God was formed as an instrumental band, Burn the Priest, and included vocals firstly after Randy Blythe joined the band as a vocalist. After they reached the success with the release of 2004's Ashes of the Wake[1][29] the band is often associated with such terms as the "leaders" of the "New Wave of American Heavy Metal"[2] and "pure American metal"[29] or "pure American death metal".[1] David Randall Blythe is the vocalist of the band Lamb of God, and he was born on February 21, 1971. ...

Burn the Priest and early Lamb of God has been defined as a thrash metal, death metal and hardcore punk[29] or grindcore[30][31] hybrid with a strong element of power groove,[32][33] which often connects Lamb of God with the influential groove metal band Pantera.[7][14][29][33][34][35][36][37] Burn the Priest and early Lamb of God include typical death metal vocals[29] with only a few moments of words that can actually be deciphered.[32] The style has been considered to vary between several different genres, including hardcore, thrash metal, and even possessing sludge metal influences.[29] Burn the Priest was Burn the Priests last album, released in 1998 by Legion Records, before changing their name to Lamb of God. ...

New American Gospel continues in a similar style as Burn the Priest, with drum-heavy production of double picking and double-kick drumming.[7] Here, the band has been considered by Allmusic to be effectively bridging the 1990s' tendency towards technicality and early metal's focus on riff construction and plays a brand of heavy metal described as not unlike Meshuggah without some of their mathematical components.[7][34] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 534 pixelsFull resolution (1600 × 1067 pixel, file size: 270 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...

2003's As the Palaces Burn saw the band's compositions focusing more on what some have called "memorable" riffs.[35] On 2004's Ashes of the Wake, they continued the progression of As the Palaces Burn with more frequent guitar solos.[14] As the Palaces Burn is Lamb of Gods second album, released under Prosthetic in 2003, three years after their previous release, New American Gospel. ...

Sacrament, released in 2006, was described by critics as more technical, especially considering the vocal performance. Again, the band experimented with more melody and guitar solos;[33] however, the band has also been often reproached by the critics for the similarity of the songs within their albums.[37][38] Sacrament is the fourth studio album from the American metal band Lamb of God. ...


Due to the variety of influences, stylistic elements and changes throughout the bands career the press has chosen several genres and terms to describe Lamb of God's music. Lamb of God has been labeled as a metalcore[38][39][40] and groove metal[39][40] band. Campbell, on the "Walk With Me In Hell" DVD, says that Lamb of God is "a punk band that plays heavy metal." Metalcore is a fusion of extreme metal and hardcore punk that began in the United States. ...

Lamb of God - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1170 words)
Lamb of God (Latin: Agnus Dei) is one of the titles given to Jesus in the New Testament and consequently in the Christian tradition.
It is believed to refer to Jesus' role as a sacrificial lamb atoning for the sins of man in Christian theology, harkening back to ancient Jewish Temple sacrifices in which a lamb was slain during the passover, the blood sprinkled along the door and eaten.
Lamb of God is also the popular name of a litany beginning with these words used in the Roman Catholic Mass and in the worship services of many other churches.
