Published Nov 07, 2008Richmond, VAs "pure American metal" band, Lamb of God have revealed some details about their upcoming fifth album. The album, a follow-up to 2006s well-received Sacrament, is titled Wrath, and will be out on February 24 through Epic Records.
In a press release, drummer Chris Adler sounded pretty stoked about the new album, stating, "This album is gong to surprise a lot of people. Typically, bands that get to where we are in our career begin to slack off, smell the roses and regurgitate. We chose a different path. No one wants to hear another band member hyping a new record. Wrath needs no hype. We have topped ourselves, and on February 24th, you will feel it.
An album that needs no hype in this day and age? Must be epic. The band will spend a portion of December touring across Canada with Metallica and the Sword.
