The other four fools in this band, Steve Austin & family, K3n, Ian, Mikey, all my brothers & sisters and especially all the suckin 'big' metal bands that leave a hole for us to fill. Satan and I love you all.

D. Randall would like to thank:
My family (Blythe's, Smith's, Cobb's and all the rest) for love, guidance, and wisdom- I know ya'll don't understand this stuff- it's ok, no I don't worship the devil. My newest family members- Sue, Jerry, Stormy, the twins- for being my West Coast kin folks, and especially Carly Petrie for being my first kid sister and crying through my whole wedding and giving me the opportunity to maybe one day scare the living hell out of one of your boyfriends like I have always wanted to do with a kid sister. Marshawn: for general creepin' and chillin' in the Ass Lounge; Pinky: for being an efficient neurotic mess and steering this great ship, hell someone's got to be the designated driver; Bubbles: for never ending cynicism and sexual innuendo, you will owe me $100; Yellow Pelican: for taking me to Egypt straight retard style and injecting some much needed dumb young blood into this piece, you crack me up- one day I will kill you all. Steve Austin- for rock above and beyond the call of duty; you are a soldier. W.J. Clark and Sons- for a trade, paychecks, humor, and an aching back. Alex Podesta, Clay Blancett, John Murden, Scott Leta, Sean Bilby- you are my brothers. Michael Brosnan- for never ending support and friendship, you are my bro. The bands that are for real and know- you get me through the day. Anyone who has helped us out. You. Abe Spear- for brotherhood and rocking during your tour of duty, and getting me into this mess in the first place. My wife- Summer Anne Blythe-for putting up with me, being the most beautiful woman in the world, partnership, and starting our own family with me- I love you, honey.

Will would like to thank:
My family, my folks and especially my brother Chris for putting up with my shit and still wanting to play music together. Mark, John, Randy - I love you all and wouldnÌt want to be doing this with anyone else. Mike Conway, Willie Gerbich, Ernie Johnson and whoever else had an impact on my music. Steve Austin, what can I say, youÌve achieved the ultimate brutality with this rock and I love you for it. To whomever else I may have left out, IÌll thank you when I see you.

Chris would like to thank:
Julie Cyr for keeping me sane and believing in me through it all, Steve Austin (and family) for dedication above and beyond, E.J. and Dan at Prosthetic, Mikey and Leslie at ~Legion~ Records, K3n for the twisted visions and perseverance, and specifically Jimmy Stewart for making good things happen, Ian Whalen for the contributions and the good ear, John Murden for the web-sickness, Abe Spear for the memorable years of disaster and the great shots, Dave at Boykins, Steve Joh, Dave at MWorks, Rico, Metal Mike, Arn and Skaritza, David Owen, Mark Smoot, Noal and Mike, Baxter, James "Skinhead McGregor" Adler, Anti5, Fathed, Broccoli, Loudnet Rob, John and Vinnen (Flatstick), Rich Hoak, Kpants and Yoshi, Larkin, all of the supportive publications and other media, the benevolent and protective brotherhood of Lamb of God and the special people surrounding us all, my family and all of our friends that unselfishly and continually believe and contribute. We will see you soon...

thats fuckin crazy that randy had two days to do vocals for this album

Like they say one of the Greatest Metal Records of all time. It truly is a Classic. The direction of the album is truly influential. It's rawness, dirt & filth is key. subtle arts is just a true genius intro for metal and guitar in general. Pariah, Terror & Hubris, & Black Label.

Will always be one of infuence to Me.

worked to perfection.

this is by far my favorite lamb of god album the raw agression and energy in this record is second to none also the rhythm section is also hands down the best i have ever heard listen to the black dahlia for an example i love the songs everybody loves but i like the ones that know one rarely listens to like abscence of the sacred and like i said before the black dahlia and no i didnt forget to mention probably the heaviest song to come out of the new millineum BLACK LABEL still one of the sickest breakdowns in metal 5 out of 5
