Well, to never stray too far from their sound, this outting doesn't see LOG pulling out too many new tricks. Just solid riffs onto off-time riffs, this time though, they did try hard to not cut and paste every Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and Sepultura riff they love getting stoned and drunk listening to. But there seems to be a let down on imagination here, a lot of repeating themselves, but then again the new breed of metal champions are pigeon-holing themselves already, so why not have Lamb Of God follow right along with the same brass that they did to stardom. Few tracks if any really stand out from getting lost in their earlier material, even when they do throw out an instrumental at us. "Hour Glass" and "One Gun" are some solid material in an ocean of cut and paste. I kinda expected more from them but I guess not even Machine can help them out.
