Omens Review

by James Christopher Monger

The veteran New Wave of American Heavy Metal architects deliver an antagonistic set of world-weary might on their ninth full-length effort. Flush with neck-snapping velocity and chunky, Pantera-worthy riffage, the ten-song set is a worthy successor to Lamb of God's eponymous, Billboard-topping 2020 offering. Produced by longtime co-conspirator Josh Wilbur (Korn, Megadeth), the reliably uncompromising Omens includes some of the band's heaviest and most apoplectic works to date, with highlights arriving via the pummeling "Nevermore" and "Greyscale," and the unrelenting title cut.
