Randy sounds tired but the music still kicks a lot of ass.

Just listened to it a few times, but still not sure what to think about it, yet.
If this was released about 5 years ago, I would probably be all over it, but this sounds like generic LoG to my ears.
-Randy's vocals sound over processed and too loud it the mix. You can understand just about every word, but the reverb and layering of the vocals take some of the rawness and aggression away.
-The guitar/bass work are good and typical Lamb of God mid-tempo groove riffs and sound like a some cool fret board exercises, but it just comes across too groovy and not edgy enough. The solos, while blazing, sound too bluesy and formulaic.
-The drums have the great production to them, but Chris' beats just don't make me want to air drum to them. I listen and think, "Ok there is a smooth mid tempo groove... nice fill. Should be a fast or more jagged syncopation part coming up.... nope, another mid-tempo
groove.... maybe now?.... nope. not yet.... Now?.... nope, end of song."

All in all, I don't think it's a bad song, despite my critique above. I just think it falls in a standard formula instead of them re-exploring some different elements of their older sound.
Some of my personal favorites are 11th Hour, The Faded Line, Terror and Hubris in the House of Frank Pollard, For Your Malice, and Bootscraper. I liked when they had some faster tempos, eerie/dissonant riffs, and/or the breakdowns with complex syncopation. And I also liked when they would draw out a slow detuned tempo to build tension within the song. This sample song seems to be in the middle of the road with none of those elements.
I hope this song isn't indicative of the entire album. If it is, I guess I just enjoy their older releases.

Personal rating 3/5 skulls.

I didn't think it was bad. I never was a huge fan of this band, but I always liked that they are from VA. Although like everyone else I agree that their earlier music is better. But this is just one song, and like I said before, I don't think it's that bad.

I enjoyed it. Not overly excited for this like I am the new Gojira but should be good nonetheless.

I LIKE IT, AND FEEL IT'S A GREAT INDICATOR OF GOOD THINGS TO COME IN 2012, BUT ALREADY KNOW IT'S NOT AS GOOD AS THE NEW VAN HALEN CD.

Gonna have to agree with Drum_Junkie here. It basically is just a generic LOG song, nothing new or special here and it sounds just like some song off Wrath. I certainly hope the rest of the album has something different to offer but I'm starting to think that it won't. But, it's still a good song though.

I agree that it sounds like standard LoG, but sometimes "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" is very true. Especially with a lot of bands, like Arch Enemy and Amon Amarth. Their sound is similar through their albums because it works, and it's what they like, and it's what their fans like. I'm definitely gonna pick this up. The solo fvcking killed, too

don't care if it sounds generic.......it sounds like LOG!! No complaints here, cant wait for the new album. Its hard to get tickets for their show these days. Sold outon ticketmaster in Toronto and people are asking 125 dollars + hard to rate an album from one song dont you think drum junkie?

I agree with 'EsotericSurgery', sounds great but I think they might have peaked last album. Really excited for new Gojira though, and I would be especially happy if Randy did some more guest work with them.

VanMetal:
I agree in not rating an album based off on song. I'm withholding judgement of the entire album until I hear the entire album. My previous post was only my impression of Ghost Walking.
I did mention that I hope this song isn't indicative of the entire album.

I am looking forward to hearing more from one of my favorite bands.

Yeah after a few more listens it does sound kind of generic but that isn't uncommon for a band to do such a thing with a single.

At least no one is blaming Pantera for these grooves anymore.

Hmmm, It's exactly what I would expect being the first single released from the new album. I believe I'll reserve judgement until I hear the whole album in it's entirety a few times. I really liked Wrath at first but as time went on I grew weary of the fodder on the album (i.e. Contractor). I hope this one doesn't have a redneck pt. 3 on it.

What exactly did you grow weary of BG? Fodder? As in political fodder? Just curious as Contractor and Redneck are two of my favorite by them because of their lyrics.

I didn't care for those two. Lyrically they just don't appeal to me as so many other LOG tunes do.

Maybe too straight forward lyrically? The lyrics aren't very creative I'll give you that...kind of just writing a rant and adding music in the background. As an artist yourself I can see how songs like that might make you yawn. Even if what he's saying is the fvckin truth :p

To me it's bordeline "pop-metal" (for lack of a better term) lyric. There's a lot of cursing and ranting and although it's far more talented and entertaining than anything A7X does, it bassically appeals to a certain demographic and I've just grown to expect more than that from LOG. I love his political stuff and the stabs at society.

I think it's a good song, but I understand where the disappointment comes from. Lamb of God had a totally original sound on their first two albums. Now, what - 6 albums later? - not only do we know what to expect, but they've gone a little groove heavy and the excitement of something new is largely gone. That said, I still dig the song. It just sounds like a lot of their other recent material.

I love this song, personally it's a big up from Wrath for me.
I loved the lyrics for it. and the intro was sick. Can't wait to hear the rest of the record.

Have to agree with BG about Redneck. I like the song, but man, does the video make me cringe. Without the song it was basically a throwback to the party-rock videos of the '80's. My introduction to Lamb of God was the video for Ruin. That's kind of how I prefer them. Still digesting this new tune though, I like it, just not sure how much yet.
