Production notes:

Long before the “New Wave of American Heavy Metal” had been christened, Burn The Priest laid the foundation for what would prove to be the rebirth of metal. With their pummeling combination of grind, death and thrash, Burn The Priest devastated the uninitiated in warehouses and basements across America. Slowly and methodically pushing the threshold of sonic extremes, and building a dedicated following that would ultimately grow to change the face of the music industry, Burn The Priest paved the way for a new generation of metal. This is Lamb of God before there was Lamb of God. Remixed and remastered by metal guru Colin Richardson and with new liner notes by original producer Steve Austin.
Burn the Priest is Burn the Priest's first and only studio album, released in 1999 by Legion Records, before changing their name to Lamb of God. This was Abe Spear's final album on guitar.
On Mar 22, 2005, it was re-released by Epic Records. The album was remixed and remastered by Colin Richardson, it featured new liner notes by original producer Steve Austin (from heavy metal band, Today Is The Day).

Wow, to believe there is only 3 reviews... I can't write much at this time for I have a powerpoint on the music of Lamb of God, but I
will be reviewing with upmost sincerity soon ( I hope). I hate this world.

I like the album in general its real raw, hardcore, & heavy. bloodletting, dimera, & Chronic Auditory Hallucination are infuential to metal. I don't listen to it much, but it's worth owning & listening to.
