Album:

VII: Sturm und Drang is the eighth studio album (including Burn the Priest) by American groove metal band Lamb of God. The album was released on July 24, 2015 through Epic Records in North America and through Nuclear Blast outside North America.It is the first album after lead vocalist Randy Blythe's manslaughter case and a brief hiatus after finishing the Resolution touring cycle. Randy Blythe stated that people shouldn't expect a prison record, and that instead he would "write about things that affect me very deeply", such as going to prison in a foreign country and being charged with manslaughter, as stated by Blythe.The album's subtitle, literally translated as "Storm and Stress", indirectly refers to Blythe's experience. Blythe says he and Mark Morton were talking about how the record’s theme relates to the psychology of humans reacting under extreme conditions, and they wanted a word that reflected such situations. Morton, whose mother is German, came across the term while researching German vocabulary. After which, the band agreed to the title.Blythe calls the album "the most cohesive record" the band has done in a long time, with Blythe writing "90 percent" of the lyrics as well as main songwriters Mark Morton and Willie Adler working in collaboration on all of the tracks instead of writing complete songs individually. Blythe also stated that due to these reasons, "The record is much, much stronger for it" and is less "schizophrenic" than previous albums."Still Echoes",VII's first single, draws inspiration from the history of Pankrác Prison, where Blythe was held on manslaughter charges. Reciting the first lyric from "Still Echoes", Blythe asserts that there was real inspiration for the lyrics even though the words "might read like graphic metal imagery". Blythe said that he sought out information about the prison's history from guards and fellow inmates while he was incarcerated.Blythe wrote the lyrics to the song "512", the album's second single, in Pankrác Prison cell number 512, while he was contemplating how the experience was changing him. According to Blythe, most of his time was spent in a basement dungeon. He said the guards put him there so they could monitor him for depression. "They stick you in the worst, dimmest, darkest place in the prison," he says. "I couldn't even see the sun to tell what part of the day it was. It was just steadily lessening levels of gloom."The third single, "Overlord", was released on June 30th, 2015. Blythe said the song is about the dangers of self-obsession in our distressingly myopic and increasingly entitled 'me-now/now-me' culture. It's about how many people can't seem to look past their own relatively small problems to see the bigger picture, and how everyday problems do not in any way shape or form constitute an emergency. Blythe commented: "Sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to, [so] deal with it. People who only see their own problems eventually wind up alone because no one wants to hear their crap anymore. We all know someone like that, always whining and complaining about some inconsequential setback as if it were the apocalypse. This song is for those people."A fourth single, "Erase This" was made available for streaming on July 10th, 2015. Guitarist Mark Morton told Rolling Stone the song is about negative people and how they can drag you down without you realizing it. It's about people you might be close to, but who are stuck in their own self-pity and that kind of energy can spread like a virus. Morton commented: "Most of us as humans have been on both the giving and receiving end of that kind of attitude, but the older I get, the more I try to focus on not allowing that type of vibe to enter my mindset." He also said, musically, "it's trademark Lamb of God riffing," and compared it to "Laid to Rest" from 2004's Ashes of the Wake.On July 17th, 2015, a week before the album's release, a fifth song entitled "Embers" was released. The song features a guest vocal appearance from Chino Moreno of Deftones. Randy Blythe says the lyrics deal with how loss affects interpersonal relationships in terms of a family dynamic, and if a family member dies, that can really twist things up. Randy commented further, saying: "I used a sort of ‘oceanic’ vibe in the lyrics. I’m talking about I’ve been staring at her laying still for so long, and I’m talking about the ocean at that point. The ocean is a metaphor for life.” Blythe also said when the song was written there were two different endings. The first one was "‘Lamb of God,’ like, boring, we’ve done it a million times" said Blythe. Guitarist Mark Morton wrote the second ending and when Randy Blythe was down at the beach writing his book and listening to it he says he could hear Chino’s vocals on it and is a huge Deftones fan."Footprints" is an ecological song according to Blythe. While he was living at the beach during the making of the album, for the summer, he remembered how much he hated tourist season. "There is no reason for tourists to behave like fucking animals and children. The locals are not your goddamn maids, and if you want the beach to be nice or the mountaintop to be nice or the town to remain picturesque, don't like throw trash everywhere, don't destroy beauty...So 'Footprints' is about [carbon] footprints.""Anthropoid" is about Reinhard Heydrich who was the architect of the Final Solution during World War II. When the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia, they sent Heydrich. Heydrich was brutal to the people of Prague and broke their spirits. Due to his brutal efficiency, Heydrich was nicknamed the Butcher of Prague, the Blond Beast, and the Hangman. Later, a group of Czech-born, British-trained paratroopers carried out the only successful assassination attempt on a high-ranking Nazi official when they attacked Heydrich during Operation Anthropoid on 27 May 1942 and died a few days later from his injuries. Randy Blythe considers them superior men, and wanted to honor them with a song. So the song is about them and killing the Butcher of Prague."Engage the Fear Machine" is about the media using scare tactics and controlling the masses through fear. Since the band was flying around a lot during that time Blythe says he remembers seeing all of the stories about Ebola and how insane he thought it was. Blythe says: "What ever happened to Ebola? How long ago was that? We were all going to die, you know? The news just takes everything to the next limit, and it keeps viewers glued to the TV and it brings in advertiser dollars.""Delusion Pandemic" is about how the Internet is a useful tool, and you can use it to learn, but it has also created a creatively stifled environment. "I do not like mashup culture." Blythe says. "There is nothing original about it. It's a waste of my cerebral space. Everything's getting shittier and shittier and shittier. I mean, I'm not Ernest Hemingway or whatever, I'm not the new greatest photographer in the world, but at least I'm writing my own stuff and I'm doing my own thing. Internet memes? Why are you paying attention to this? Why is there some stupid picture that you put some stupid little things on that say something dumb? This is cerebral garbage. You are clogging your mind"."Torches" was inspired by a Czech student named Jan Palach. In 1969 the Warsaw Pact invaded Czechoslovakia in an attempt to keep the Czech people under communist rule. Since the Nazis had already destroyed and brutalized Czechoslovakia during World War II, this student went to Wenceslas Square to the stairs of the National Museum during a busy time of the day and caught himself on fire. He walked down the steps in protest and then died a few days later. He became a symbol of dissidence for the Czechs up until the end of the communist area. Blythe says he learned of the topic while awaiting his trial and had a lot of respect for him. It also made Blythe think about "what kind of mentality does a person have to be in to be so upset that you burn yourself alive? That's got to be an unpleasant way to go." The song was inspired by visiting Palach's grave. The song also features guest vocals by Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan.VII contains ten tracks[15] and a limited first pressing features two bonus tracks.The album was also made available with exclusive bundles through the band's website.The first single "Still Echoes".The album's second single, "512", was made available for streaming on the band's official YouTube channel on June 8, 2015.The official music video for "512" premiered on June 12, 2015.The official music video for the albums third single, "Overlord", premiered on June 30, 2015, and was also made available through digital retailers.The album's fourth single "Erase This" was made available for streaming on July 10, 2015.The album's fifth single, "Embers", was released July 17, 2015, a week before the albums release, and features guest vocals from Chino Moreno of Deftones.

From 2008 to 2010 they toured as part of Metallica's World Magnetic Tour.

Album:

Since the early 90s the American metal scene has been on a perennial quest for the ultimate expression of heaviness, spearheaded by the commercial success of Metallica’s eponymous 5th studio album and especially the subsequent breakthrough opus that was Pantera’s Vulgar Display Of Power. Indeed, one could argue that every expression of the NWOAHM has been an attempt to further distill the early strides of the aforementioned albums to its most primal form, with varying outside influences coming into the equation to take this unifying endeavor in a few different directions, with that of the Gothenburg-styled melodic death metal sound providing the most auspicious results during the 2000s. Within this context, Virginia-based metal juggernaut Lamb Of God, which had already existed for much of the 90s under the moniker Burn The Priest, forged a forceful blend of Pantera-styled groovy aggression, lightning fast modern thrash trappings and occasional melodeath trappings into a highly distinctive niche, one which continues to bear fruit after taking root over two decades ago.Though always a highly consistent processing plant of pummeling riffs, deep-thudding rhythms and over-the-top vocal gymnastics of the harsher variety, there is a consensus that the signature sound that Lamb Of God is best known for was codified on their 2004 smash opus Ashes Of The Wake, and it is that same template that has guided their latest studio effort in 2022’s Omens. Helmsman and vocalist Randy Blythe continues to embody the raucous, shrieking quality that typified the raging bull approach pioneered by Phil Anselmo during the mid-1990s, though presenting it in a more methodical manner with clear points of climax and denouement, occasionally resorting to a cleaner cut baritone for added contrast. The riff assault of Mark Morton and Willie Adler present a highly dynamic mixture of punchy grooves and frenzied thrashing bursts that prove to be as kinetic as they are tasteful, with occasional guitar solos providing some added sweetness. But behind the aforementioned impresarios is a highly efficient bombardment of rhythmic precision via bassist John Campbell and recently acquired/former Winds Of Plague drummer Arturo Cruz, providing the dense foundation to this veritable palace of aggression.No punches are pulled throughout this album’s 41 minute duration, and even from its very inception, it proves an uncompromising, iron-clad fist to the gut. Meaty crusher and opening foray “Nevermore” sets the tone on a decidedly bombastic note, sticking more towards mid-paced territory and relying on a combination of rhythmically nuanced groove work and occasional interludes into the signature metalcore trappings that typified mid-2000s American metal, right down to the pummeling breakdown moments. Other anthems that tread a similar path of Dimebag Darrel inspired riffs blended with occasional flirtations with the hardcore and melodic trappings of Chimaira and Trivium include the beast of a title song “Omens” and the modern thrash-tinged banger with a heavy dose of Exhorder influences “Grayscale”, each presented in a compact format fit for rock radio and chock full of enough attitude to turn lethal in a mosh pit setting, ultimately leaving little mystery as to why they, along with the previously noted “Nevermore” were featured as promotional singles, attaining heavy praise via the online metal community.While this outfit continues to be one that errs on the side of not messing with a winning formula, there is a healthy degree of variety in how this album presents its consistent expression of rage once the deeper tracks are considered. More kinetic, thrash-based offerings such as the Testament-like riff machine “Vanishing” and the militarized modern monster of a crusher with a side order of 2000s Exodus trappings “Ditch” still retain some of the metalcore trappings and Pantera-infused anger of this outfit’s mid-paced fair, but are far more chaotic and dangerous in their demeanor. The picture gets a bit more controlled on the up tempo pile-driver “Ill Designs” and the stop-start thrashing of “To The Grave”, but the sense of frantic motion continues to guide things, while the shorter and more stripped down mayhem of “Denial Mechanism” hearkens back pretty heavily to the compact chaos of Sepultura’s punk-infused modern speed anthems. But the song that showcases the richest level of contrast is the longer closing number “September Song”, which delves the furthest into the band’s stylistic connection to the 2000s metalcore scene and explores the corresponding melodic Gothenburg trappings and atmospheric elements the most while still maintaining the album’s overarching focus on unrelenting heaviness.Naturally the question for the newcomer and the hardened faithful that have followed Lamb Of God since the beginning alike becomes, where does Omens fit in the expansive catalog associated with the band in question? The answer is basically somewhere in the middle, as it lacks the distinction of being the first album to really flesh out this formula that Ashes Of The Wake can claim, nor does it go beyond the expansive variation on said format that was accomplished on 2009’s Wrath, but it is by no means a slouch. There are no weak links to speak of here, nor anything that would sound like a puzzling deviation that would meet with the disapproval of this style’s established audience, and the ante has definitely been upped in how massive things sound given further strides in production quality. It does play things a tad safe, but ultimately accomplishes the same satisfying restatement of what works that many newer albums by established adherents of the NWOAHM movement have been putting out of late, and should not be passed up by anyone who likes their metal as heavy as can be.
