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?
Does your God hold a place for us?
Is there time to repent?
Will we rise from the dead?
Can these sins even be forgiven?
Is there still hope for us?
Were we ever even alive?
Is any of this even real?
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."
Passerby : "I CAN PLAY LAID TO REST ON GUITAR HERO!!"
LOG Fan 1+2: "YOU'RE A FAGGOT!!!"
