8. Lamb of God – VII: Sturm und Drang
After Randy Blythe‘s time under threat of incarceration it seems the influence may have spread into his art. “VII: Sturm und Drang” is violent and passionate.
Listen to it at the gym and it’ll make you work VII times harder, and that’s a fact. It’s unrelenting but not a wall of noise. There are choruses and there are melodies, that is what makes Lamb of God so talented; encapsulating the very core of groove metal, and evolving it how they want.
