With an undying reputation as one of contemporary metal’s most fearsome live acts, heavy-hitting thrash quintet Lamb of God have already achieved the type of mainstream success many once considered unthinkable for a band of such magnitude. Following steady sales figures on the back of debut release ‘New American Gospel’, its Devin Townsend produced follow-up ‘As The Palaces Burn’ would go on to shift well over 100,000 copies, capturing the attention of major label giants Sony.
The deal that followed resulted in 2004’s critically acclaimed ‘Ashes of The Wake‘ which has consequently gone on to sell 300,000 copies in the United States alone. The band has since toured relentlessly, most notably as co-headliners of Ozzfest 2004’s second stage alongside fellow titans Hatebreed and Slipknot.
With a recently gold-certified DVD release in the form of ‘Killadelphia‘ (one of the few metal bands ever to have achieved such a feat) and a new album on the way; 2006 is already a year certain to belong to Virginia’s finest.
Hold on to your hats…
