The musicians were not wasting time: in 2008 they started creating the material for their new record. That record received fair reviews and soon Lamb of God were touring again. The lyrics is traditionally elaborate and deep: Randy discussed the themes of self-destruction and the future of the mankind. Initially the band was named Burn The Priest, but the musicians changed the name in 1998, after the release of their debut album. The story of Lamb of God began in 1990, when Chris Adler, Mark Morton, John Campbell and Randy Blythe met in Virginia Commonwealth University. . However they found the time in order to perform with legendary Metallica.
However, in spite of all the difficulties, Burn the Priest created several records. In 1999 Willie Adler joined the group and later the musicians decided to change the name of their band. In 2009 Lamb of God released their fifth studio album titled Wrath. In 2003 Lamb of God issued their new studio album As the Places Burn. After the recording of As the Places Burn was completed, Lamb of God went on touring again.
Two years after New American Gospel release that record was included into the list of the greatest metal albums of all times by the Revolver magazine. After that release Lamb of God started the tour and performed on the stage with such famous bands as Cannibal Corpse, Mushroomhead, Six Feet Under and Killswitch Engage. There is no doubt that this anthology will be enjoyed by the old fans and of course it will be interesting for those who are not familiar with music of Lamb of God. In 2010 Lamb of God made a present for their fans by releasing a wonderful record Hourglass: The Anthology. New American Gospel got fair reviews and attracted deserved attention. Traditionally powerful sound was not left without any attention: Guitar World magazine placed Ashes of the Wake on the 49th place in the list of the Greatest guitar albums of all times.
The reason was very simple: owners of the clubs, where the gigs took place, considered the name of the band to be evil, and refused to invite them to perform. Together with Slayer, Mastodon and Children of Bodom they took part in several major festivals, including The Unholy Alliance. In 2006 the musicians released the album Sacrament. It is worth mentioning that the conditions were quite rough: there were no heating. Since the tour was finished, the band started working on a new studio attempt. The record turned out to be strong and many music magazines entitled it the best album of the year.
