Lamb of God have had great success since the release of their 2000 album New American Gospel. Two years of extensive touring to support the album raised Lamb of God's profile before the band released the critically acclaimed, releasing As The Palaces Burn in 2003. ATPB won record of the year honours in such notable magazines as Revolver and Metal Hammer while garnering mainstream press in Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly. The continued touring and began headlining tours across the globe, including MTV Head banger’s Ball.

Gradually, Lamb of God's persistence paid off. As The Palaces Burn earned them a new level of respect and admiration, but it was 2004's virulent major label debut, Ashes of the Wake that turned the band into true contenders for the metal throne. By mid 2006, the record had sold over 275,000 copies. Revolver magazine voted it the album of the year, a Guitar World readers poll deemed it best metal album and awarded the band "most valuable players," "best shredders" and "best riffs."

This past summer brought Sacrament, a stunning example of how diverse, articulate and pummelling metal can be. It's a record that emphasizes just how far the band members have come as players, writers and people and stands as a true testament of triumph over adversity. With Sacrament, Lamb of God has stoked the flames by stripping the flesh to the bone and examining the carnage.

On their latest record, Supremacy, Hatebreed, who've toured with everyone from Slayer to Slipknot, impeccably illustrate all the things that have made them one of the underground heavy metal scene's most beloved and most important bands of the past decade. It also presents a new and improved Hatebreed, who took some time, celebrated their ten-year anniversary with a sold-out tour, reconnected with their fans, navigated some personal issues, and then recorded an album that is as hulking as it is tight, as tough as it positive.
