Re: lamb of god I love the entire Groove metal thing. From Pantera to LoG. Both of the bands being in my top 5 list. And i mean, Lamb Of God is a fusion between several genres. Including Groove Metal, Trad heavy metal, Hard Rock, Death Metal, And some of the core things. But imo, They've made their own genre.. :P

Re: lamb of god

I mean the chugga chugga groove. We can thank Pantera for that whole mess. :P Nah, if you like it, more power to you. :)
I hope that didn't come off as an attack because that's not what I meant. I was thinking out loud, lol. I'm not sure when people started using that phrase but its rapidly taken over the original term. Perhaps it was more of a colloquialism to my area than I had realized. Pantera, Biohazard and several others...oi ;)

Re: lamb of god No, no. I didn't interpret it that way at all. You're fine. Man, where is the thumbs up icon when I need it? :ugeek: @Apoca: There are some bands that have done the groove metal thing "right" (or at least that I like). What's "right" is subjective anyway. :P You may want to check out Overkill's Killbox 13 because it is absolutely fantastic. I think you will like it. I'm glad the 'kill has recent returned to thrash metal, however.

Re: Lamb of God ever since I first heard Lamb Of God I've thought of them as nothing more then a second-rate Pantera rip off, that opinion hasn't changed in six years (I've been into metal for eight) and I highly doubt it ever will, and the reason their drummer practices so much is because he needs it. honestly I don't get why Lamb Of God is so popular and I probably never will

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
