For a groove-metal band like Lamb of God, losing a drummer—the person who's largely responsible for the groove—is a formidable obstacle. The Virginia band's tenth album is the first without the pummeling Chris Adler, who's undeniably one of the finest drummers in metal and whose double-bass cannon blasts were an identifying feature of Lamb of God since the beginning. On this self-titled outing, the gang enlists Art Cruz (formerly of the cinematic deathcore band Winds of Plague and a touring member of Lamb of God's forefathers Prong), and deliver a well-earned victory, proving that their rhythmic ethos are intact and that their songs are as headbang-able as ever. 

Frontman Randy Blythe again demonstrates why he's one of the most skilled vocalists in heavy metal. For years, he's been able to harness the ferocity of a raging Wolfman while also dialing in an unmatched diction, allowing him to scream momentous refrains that growlers of his ilk would typically hand off to a clean singer. He sounds gnarly as ever when he locks into any one of the record's countless savory grooves, unleashing hellfire shrieks when he really wants to crank the heat. A lot of the record is pretty meat and potatoes Lamb of God, which was necessary to reassure fans that Cruz is just as beastly behind the kit. But there are also plenty of nice surprises, like the blast beat in "On The Hook", or when "New Colossal Hate" breaks into a sprint and then gets peppered with pirouetting Slayer leads. "Resurrection Man" begins with an ad-libbed "blegh" to cue its churning breakdown, which verges on Acacia Strain-style deathcore and only gets more brutal each time it comes back around. 

The campy nu-metal muttering on songs like "Bloodshot Eyes" and "Memento Mori" feel a little out of place, but that's because Lamb of God are at their best when they're gunning ahead at full steam. Fortunately, there are more than enough moments on here where they won't let up, resulting in a record that sounds familiar but also dangerous—that Lamb of God sweet spot. © Eli Enis/Qobuz

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Queen: A Balanced Band

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which was screening in cinemas in October 2018, is a reminder of what Freddie Mercury would always say: Queen isn’t just about him, it’s about a band of four exceptional individuals. This is exactly what Brian May and Roger Taylor (without John Deacon, who retired) have been trying to demonstrate since the death of their flamboyant singer on November 21, 1991.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.
