Ashes of the Wake is the fourth studio album by American groove metal band Lamb Of God, released in 2004. The album debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200, selling 35,000 copies in its first-week and was rated by Guitar World as the 49th greatest Guitar Album of all Time. The album is more political than their previous work, aimed at the war in Iraq, with songs such as "Ashes of the Wake" (which includes snippets of former staff sergeant and former Marine Jimmy Massey in an interview after his return from the Iraq War), "Now You've Got Something to Die For", "One Gun" and "The Faded Line". As of August 2010, Ashes of the Wake has sold 398,000 copies in the United States, making it Lamb of God's best-selling album.[1]

DualDisc

A DualDisc version was released in the U.S. The DVD side contained the album in LPCM 2.0, and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, as well as various video clips, including the promo videos for "Now You've Got Something To Die For" (intended to promote the Killadelphia release) and "Laid to Rest", a short on the New England Metalfest, a "Meet the Band" and a clip from the Terror and Hubris DVD. A production error in the 5.1 mix of "One Gun" causes the vocals to pitch shift high and low throughout the song.

Reception

The album was generally well received, with users giving it a score of 8.4 on Blabbermouth.net, while the site officially gave it a 7.0 rating.[2] Johnny Loftus of AllMusic.com gave it a 4/5 star review.[3] He praised Blythe's vocals, saying they became, "Lamb of God's threshold of pain conduit."
