Lamb of God

Resolution (Epic)

Randy Blythe's 13-second scream teeing off these Virginia romper-stompers' fifth body slam isn't Roger Daltrey on "Won't Get Fooled Again," but consider it a premonition of the singer's last month in a Prague prison on manslaughter charges.

The Richmond quintet's usual uniformity of sound, production, and performance strikes many like a concrete dam, and Resolution takes 10-15 minutes too long to resolve, but there's no arguing with a rabid dog called "Cheated." ***
