We knew it would would be heavy, we knew it would be loud, and after hearing the album in full I’m so happy Lamb of God are still delivering. Randy sounds as fierce as ever, Mark Morton is amazing with almost everything he’s laying out, there is a lot to take in. The variety in the first half especially with the grooves is welcomed. The title track and Ditch are huge songs with great heavy hooks. Even after you get some overload of the ferocity in the second half, it still works well as an album with a great closing September Song. This is a great example of a band aging like a fine wine and still being just as strong as ever. 8/10.
