Ok, I normally don't write definitions but I saw WAY too many people writing things on here that are the exact opposite of the truth. One dick wipe wrote:

"A generic, poor, completely unoriginal, commercial Nu metal/metalcore band.

Along with bands like Killswitch Engage, they take the concept of pinch harmonics and completely overuse them, diluting their effect.

Mainly listened to by your stereotypical "emo" as a way to look cool and harcore"

There are more things wrong with that than I can get in to, but heres a few.

1. They are not metalcore or nu metal. They are a 100% american death metal band with an absolutely unique sound stemming from their funky riffs. On the same token, metalcore and nu metal are about as far on either side of the spectrum of music as classical and rap so "Nu metal/metalcore" makes no sense whatsoever. P.O.D. and Linkin Park are nu metal, In Flames is metalcore.

2. No "stereotypical emo" listens to lamb of god, thats a giant oxymoron.

Now, getting into the real definition. Lamb of God is death metal band from VA who invented a sound all their own by combining the unbelievably heavy lyrics pumped through their screaming machine front man with fast paced unconventional guitar pieces/double bass/funky riffs and harsh, heavy breakdowns.

Their lyrics are some of the most outrageous you will hear from most bands with songs that have seemingly anti-god views (blacken the cursed sun)
Can we still be saved?
Hell, no!
Does your God hold a place for us?
Hell, no!
Is there time to repent?
Hell, no!
Will we rise from the dead?
Hell, no!
Can these sins even be forgiven?
Hell, no!
Is there still hope for us?
Hell, no!
Were we ever even alive?
Hell, no!
Is any of this even real?
Hell, no!

to songs that go into detail about assassinating a leader (one gun)
The eyes of the patriot fixed through the scope
The unknowing tyrant walks to the rope.

It's where murder is justice that martyrs are made
A one gun salute for the new independence day.
They'll hallow your name
They'll hallow your name for your sacrifice.

The album Ashes of the Wake is what really propelled them into stardom, winning various awards and spawning a live DVD entitled Killadelphia.

They took conventional metal (when I say conventional I am talking about thrash metal) and put a dark twist on it and shifted the main focus of the songs to the overall "power" rather than speed or technicality.

Bottom line: Great band. If you like really heavy music then listen to LOG, they will melt your face off.
LOG hater: "I hate Lamb of God, they are weaksuce."
LOG Fan 1: "You're a n00b, they are tEh u83R pwnage!!"
LOG Fan 2: "Yea, they're kind of awesome."
LOG Fan 1+2: "YOU'RE A FAGGOT!!!"

Famous for the wall of death.
Where a bunch of crazy motherfuckers charge eachother like in brave heart. Beautiful to watch from a distance but if your in the wall of death, chances are you'll get trampled

One of the greatest metal bands to grace our world. No, they're not Christian. They're truth.

Yes a truly hardcore growling band that rips the anus indeed.
Dude your ears are bleeding!
Been to a Lamb of God show?

Insane band that kicks the asshole really hard. Formerly known as Burn The Priest. Could be mistaken at first as a christian band, but is really the opposite, and is better than Jesus in every way.

One of the best metalcore bands out there. If you were to make a sexual equivalent to listening to Lamb of God, it'd be trying to deepthroat a tree stump.
If you say you like metal, but don't like Lamb of God, you're a fuckin' fag and a goddamn liar.

A heavy-metal band from Richmond, VA. They use pulsive tactics in their music, and write insane riffs to their songs, which gave them the popularity they have today. Lamb of God is not a Christian band, but they're not a Devil-warshipping band. Although if they had to be thought of as one thing, they'd rather be known as a Christian band.

Lamb of God is one of the most well-known heavy-metal bands and is recognized by almost every heavy-metal fan out there. If you listen to heavy-metal, and never have heard of Lamb of God, then this band is for you. For being around since 1994, and creating their first cd in 2000, they have created 3 cds. A new cd is coming in late August, 2006.

CDs released:

New American Gospel - 2000
As The Palaces Burn - 2002
Ashes of the Wake - 2004
Sacrament - 2006

Formerly, they were known as Burn the Priest, in which the name was switched when Will Adler came into Lamb of God. (see Burn the Priest for further info.)
Lamb of Gods' concerts are played perfect.
