Lamb of God 'Ashes of the Wake' - 15th Anniversary Edition Review by Allyson Kingsley

Lamb of God

Ashes of the Wake- 15th Anniversary Edition

Epic Worlds

May 3, 2019

Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

If you don't know who Lamb of God are by this point in your life, you have probably been sleeping under a rock for a very long time. Stemming from little old Richmond, Virginia the metal giants have risen to rank as one of the top and most influential metal bands the world over. With years under their belt comes a honing of each individual's craft and a devout humbleness to their fans. In celebration. LOG are releasing the 15th anniversary edition of Ashes of the Wake an album that catapulted their rise to the top.

This anniversary edition is a double vinyl re-release that includes 4 exclusive tracks. They are the B-side track “Another Nail or Your Coffin” and 3 previously unreleased pre-production demos: “Laid to Rest,” “Ashes of the Wake,” and “Remorse Is for the Dead.”  If you're not a fan of re-released material, at the very least, have a go at the rarities that are included in these special albums.

I fully enjoyed revisiting beloved songs such as “Laid to Rest,” “Omerta,” the fluid liquid heaviness of “Break You” and “What I've Become,” further reminding me of why I loved them from the onset of their career. The B-side track “Another Nail for Your Coffin” is blissfully heavy to start and then shows a nice bit of prog element towards the end, if you will. Check out the raw characteristics of the pre-production versions of the songs listed above as opposed to the finished versions to hear the little nuances. Yeah, I'm a nerd like that.

Thus began a night of listening to all the Lamb of God discography to date. If you're ever bored and want to ditch social media on a sleepless night, do this for the bands you love. You may discover that a song or an album that you were not keen on a few years back, now offers you solace and a renewed interest.
