About Lamb of God
“For millions of headbangers, Lamb Of God are simply the most important contemporary metal band in the world,” – Guitar World Now, the Grammy-nominated goliath follows 2020’s self-titled slab, Lamb of God, with a vicious new testament. Riding high on an insatiable drive, a focused collective camaraderie, and a creative renaissance saluted by the likes of Rolling Stone and NME, Lamb Of God returned to longtime producer Josh Wilbur and carved the gloriously unhinged Omens into sonic stone.
Even as D. Randall Blythe (vocals), Mark Morton (lead guitar), Willie Adler (guitar), John Campbell (bass), and Art Cruz (drums) enjoy one another’s company and chemistry like never before, Omens is possibly the angriest Lamb Of God album yet. “It’s a pissed-off record,” Blythe says, with a hint of mischief. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed-off.”
Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, Omens is a furious entry in the Lamb Of God catalog. “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world around me,” Blythe reasons. “The last record was thematically driven; really, this one is just a response to the screwed-up world we live in.”
