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. "I am the one who's left to take the fall," he roars on the equally ear-scything "The Undertow," but better that than "You dug your own grave" on new-metal tinged "The Number Six." 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." ***
