Wrath (2009)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Feb 24, 2009; Lead Performance: Lamb of God; Genre: Metal

Drummer Chris Adler has said their fifth album will ''surprise a lot of people,'' scaring fans who thought the groove-metal band's last record already succumbed to (gasp!) accessibility. Diehards may again be disappointed by the acoustic intro to Wrath's closing track, ''Reclamation,'' and the subtle nods to melody throughout. But c'mon, Randy Blythe's demonic bark, Adler's chain-gun rhythms, and the ferocious chug-chug-chug-squeal guitar riffing are all vintage Lamb of God — and that's a good thing, if you like the rough stuff. B+
