After having scoped out some Lamb of God not too awful long ago, (Wrath), and having really been blown away by their mind blowing metal sound, I decided that I needed to check out some more of their music, starting first with this album. Ashes of the Wake is simply awesome! Even before I was really that into Lamb of God...having previously been pretty skeptical about listening to their music...there were a few songs of theirs that I did know and enjoyed, whether Laid To Rest from off of Guitar Hero Smash Hits or a couple of scattered songs from Wrath...which is inevitably why I think I finally decided to check out some more of their music...and I'm glad I did, cause they freakin shred! I am still not a big fan of what Lamb of God represents lyrically, but they still know how to melt faces. It's like I said in my review for Wrath though, people will believe what they're going to believe, and I can't understand most of what they say anyway, so it doesn't get to me that badly. I believe no differently then what I do now after listening to Lamb of God. I can only pray for the group, but it's still metal at it's finest. Having said that, I can't say, spare a few songs, that I was that huge of a fan of their album Sacrament, cause there were certain songs on it that I didn't like the sound of necessarily, and they were seemingly more vulgar in that one it seems like, and there are really only 2 songs on Ashes of the Wake album and one on Wrath that was any bit vulgar...though it wasn't consistent. Sure, it's just words...but I have always just not much cared for a lot of language in music. I don't know, I guess I just feel that it taints the music or something, but I just don't care that much for alot of vulgarity in what I listen to. To each their own though, I suppose. I am still not a big fan of morbid or blatently Satanic/devil promoting groups either. However, Lamb of God is decent enough...and Wrath & Ashes of the Wake are not too bad...and they don't promote hell or Satan. Wrath and Ashes of the Wake are both brilliantly brutal, in your face metal assaults that I feel I will probably continue to enjoy for quite a while to come. If I had to chose, I'd say that Ashes of the Wake is my favorite of the 2, but both are pretty awesome. Metal heads, scope out this album and Wrath if you are not that familiar with Lamb of God, cause they are the best ones in my opinion...that I have heard anyway. God bless!

This cd is my absolute favorite for one reason. This cd has great sound quality. I have never heard a metal cd with this kind of performance.

This is indeed another awesome album from Lamb of God. L.O.G. are by far better than most of their peers in both musicianship and songwriting. Although for some reason I liked "As the Palaces Burn" better, this is still one amazing record, and you should go buy it immediately.
