Sound — 9
The sound is incredible. The consistent guitar riff changes and the way Chris Adler (drummer) can keep up and the way it all fits together so perfectley. The Bassist also really good in this. It's amazing how the bassist can keep up. This band (in my opinion) has some of the best guitarists in the music industry and one of the best bassists.

The lyrics are really cool. The song that really stood out to me was "Again We Rise" because the lyrics are really good. You can look at this song in various ways but I like to look as it as if it were directed toward Bush because of this line in the song, "A thousand yard stare across the south, a full belly and a lying mouth, Momma's boy plays heretic, the real thing would kill you quick." Overall the lyrics are extremely good and they fit well with the music.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall this was an amazing CD. The sound was amazing and the way that the lyrics fit together with the music is really awesome. Everything on this record fits together so well. I wasn't really a Lamb of God fan untill I bought this record and then I was hooked on them. If this was ever lost or stolen I would deffinatley go out and buy it again. If you're looking for a good album to buy go out and buy this one.
