Ready to feel old? “As The Palaces Burn” is now ten years old! That’s right! Lamb Of God was slowly making a name for themselves with older Burn The Priest material and “New American Gospel,” but on this date ten years ago, things would change drastically for the band! I’ll never forget hearing this record for the first time and being completely blown away by the sound of this band! From the opening classic, “Ruin“, to the last track, “Vigil,” this album is perfection. The raw power and energy of the music was undeniable and the songwriting overpowered you from start to finish! You knew that this was the future of metal when you heard it, and you can’t say that about many records! This is still my favorite Lamb Of God album, and easily one of my favorite CD’s of all time. It’s hard to believe that it came out ten years ago today, because it’s still in my rotation weekly! It’s that fucking good!
So let’s celebrate the ten years since “As The Palaces Burn” hit the scene with new and old performances of the tracks, the videos and more below!
