NEW LAMB OF GOD ALBUM COMING FEB. ’09, PRODUCED BY… UH… WHO IS THIS DUDE?
Just in time for Vince’s birthday on Valentine’s Day (which explains why he’s so darn sexy), Lamb of God will release a new album this February, according to a press release that just arrived here at the MetalSucks Mansion.
The band is working with producer Josh Wilbur (pictured above) this time.
Wait… who the fuck is Josh Wilbur?
The press release says that Wilbur “is well known for his Grammy Award winning work with Steve Earl,” and a quick google search shows that he’s also enigneered for everyone from Avenged Sevenfold to Pink, and that he’s mixed at least one Limp Bizkit album. Meanwhile, Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler goes on to say that the band is “excited change things up this time and work with Josh…There is an aggressive shift in the material and our approach.”
I know a lot of LoG fans were unhappy with the work producer Machine did on the band’s last two albums, particularly Sacrament; personally, I wasn’t one of them. Still, Machine was the first producer LoG had ever worked with more than once, so switching things up a lot clearly works for them. For now, I choose to have total faith in the band… even if Josh Wilbur has worked with Limp Bizkit.
