That’s right, my faithful readers: Lamb of God’s forthcoming new studio album will be called Resolution, Gun Shy Assassin can exclusively confirm.
Resolution is slated for an early 2012 release; January 24, to be exact. More details about the record will be revealed later this week.
It’s funny, but I have already heard two rough tracks off of this album, and they are beyond epic. Like, way beyond epic, people. They kind of reminded me of Ashes of the Wake and As The Palaces Burn-era Lamb of God, which means it’s going to destroy.
One of the songs I’ve heard is called “Desolation,” I think. This, I am assuming, given that’s the one word that Randy Blythe most often screams during the song’s chorus. Anyways, I thought maybe that was what they were going to end up going with as the title. But, hey…I was only off by a couple of letters.
Unless every other track on the record somehow ends up sucking shit (and why the hell would it), I can assure you that the new Lamb of God is going to blow your fucking nuts/ovaries apart. This thing is going to be seismic, people.
One of the two songs I’ve been able to hear actually features an orchestra and a fucking choir, if you can imagine that. Chris Adler recently spoke to Gun Shy Assassin about the track — which still has a working title, so far as we know…so it would be pointless to mention it here.
“Yeah — there’s opera singers, a whole symphony going on — it’s crazy,” Adler said of the new song, which actually features a brooding Blythe, singing slowly over the opening. “We were trying to figure out how to not be black metal but do something totally different. I think we succeeded.”
I can not wait to hear the entire album. Man, this is going to be glorious. And please — “Like” us on Facebook, so you will be the first to know when the new Adler Chatter columns will be coming, and because in 2012, we’ll be bringing you more Lamb of God exclusives. Believe you me.
