“Although there’s plenty of LAMB OF GOD’s trademark guitar chug and Olympics-level drumming, the eerier moments (see the jailhouse tale “512”) and unexpected guests (including members of Deftones and the Dillinger Escape Plan) show a group that’s thirsty to evolve beyond its own established patterns.” – Kory Grow, Rolling Stone

 

“”VII: Sturm und Drang“, for all of its polish and bows to melody, is one of the fiercest albums they’ve ever laid down… This album is a full-on purge and if you can relate, “VII: Sturm und Drang” will get you off in more ways than one.” – Ray Van Horn Jr., Blabbermouth.net

 

LAMB OF GOD‘s return with VII: Sturm und Drang [Epic Records] is a flawless fire and brimstone blast. This is heavy music forged in flames of raw emotion and experience in the most unbridled manner. The group… carve out a rapturously heavy and unsettlingly hypnotic space that’s easy to fall into. This is the band’s most simultaneously atomic and atmospheric body of work to date.” – Rick Florino, ArtistDirect.com

 

“From the brooding dynamics of Overlord and Embers to the more expected savagery of Erase This and Delusion Pandemic, LAMB OF GOD sound more focused than ever here, and thoroughly deserving of their status as one of metal’s biggest bands.” – Dom Lawson, The Guardian

 

“The band’s newest work finds them continuing to find the fine balance between sinister thrash and metallic catchiness on standout tracks like “Overlord” and “Erase This”.” – Jason Roche, OC Weekly

 

“…another solid addition to the LAMB OF GOD catalogue.” – Bradley Zorgdrager, Exclaim! Magazine

 

 

Recently, LAMB OF GOD released their official music videos for “Overlord” and “512”, both directed by Jorge Torres-Torres. Watch both videos here: “512” | “Overlord”

 

VII: Sturm Und Drang is once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe, and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, CA. LAMB OF GOD’s last album, the 2012 Grammy-nominated Resolution, debuted at #3 on the US Billboard Top 200, #1 on the US Top Hard Rock and Rock Album charts, #2 on the Canadian albums chart, and #3 on the Australian albums chart.
