EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Aug 31, 2004; Lead Performance: Lamb of God

Thrash metal meets political dissent on Lamb of God's thrilling, musically complex new album, Ashes of the Wake. Singer Randy Blythe nimbly but ferociously rips apart the lies that leaders tell and assails imperial bloodlust, while the band unleashes an intricate, brutal barrage of riffs and blast beats. By the end, you feel clobbered -- and oddly empowered.
