LAMB OF GOD have left the following message on their official website:
"The new LAMB OF GOD album "Ashes of the Wake" will be released on Tuesday, August 31, 2004.
The Epic Debut “Ashes of the Wake,” is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2003 independent release on Prosthetic Records, “As The Palaces Burn” which Revolver Magazine calls “Album of the Year” and Rolling Stone praised “a meticulously crafted metal assault.”
Produced by Machine, the new Album” Ashes Of The Wake” includes guest appearances by MEGADETH's’s Chris Poland and Testament’s Alex Skolnick.
As this goes to press all basic tracks have been laid down -Drummer Chris Adler tells us:
“The tracking sessions have been very intense and the vibe in the studio is exciting to say the least. My drum tracks were done in Jersey in May and Randy is done as of today. It's been a giant sonic puzzle and as Willie, Mark, John and Randy have layered onto the basic drum mix - you can feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. It's like feeling the ground as a train approaches, you can tell how massive it is - and its coming fast. It's surreal at times - I think everyone involved knows we have a monster on our hands.”
