Resolution is Lamb Of God's 7th Studio album, and the 4th that they've produced through Epic Records. The album came out on January 24, 2012, and did very well success wise. It reached number 3 on the Billboard 200 charts and sold 52,000 copies in its first week alone, nearly matching the success of their previous album, Wrath, which peaked at number 2 on the charts.
"Ghost Walking" was the first single that was released for the album, and is definitely everything a fan of Lamb Of God would expect. While the band knows what fans expect of them, they know how to not only deliver on that expectation, and raise the bar just a bit higher. Muscally speaking, the guitar riffs are incredible, and so are the solos. The guitar, bass and drums with the vocals, all blend perfectly and that sometimes can be difficult to do. We would highly recommend this album, especially if you are a fan of Pantera. We get a similar vibe from this album in particular, and would love to hear what others think as well!
We also would like to point out that the drums throughout the entire album are definitely unreleting, and this is their most confident sounding album yet. "Invictus" was definitely the most lyrically compelling song on the whole record.
Some may feel like Lamb Of God is repeating themselves just a bit, when they hear this album compared to their previous releases, but we feel like they're simply expanding on their own very unique sound. That alone is something to admire.
