4.Lamb of God-Resolution
Lamb of God might not be the most innovative band around, but they are consistent as hell and Resolution
is no exception. Of course, there is ample amounts of energy and excellent groove riffs that Lamb of God is known for. It's impressive that these guys still has this much relentless fury in their music after being active for so long. The mostly stick to their formula, but they stray from it every once in a while on tracks like the Crowbar-esque opener "Straight for the Sun" and the prominent string arrangements on "King Me". The most impressive aspect of this record was me the improved musicianship. Chris Adler's drumming has never been more intricate and Randy Blythe gives arguably his best vocal performance to date. It's not quite Ashes of the Wake
, but Resolution is another excellent effort by metal's resident rednecks.
