Is Lamb of God the new Pantera??? Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories
Old 22nd February 2008

I was debating this with my friends almost two years ago. Lamb of God is taking the place of Pantera since they resided due to misfortunes..but they don't really sound the same to me or my friends.. If you compared for example As the Palaces Burn had way to much high midrange compared to full on fidelity with Reinventing the Steel. If you could put Dimebag with his crazy effects and solos side by side with Lamb of God you would just get a generic sound out of Lamb of God with your chug chugs, palm mutes and double bass...where Pantera always seemed to keep this more dark southern kick your ass out of a swamp sound...even though Vinnie Paul is not as impressive as lamb's drummer.

P.s. not to change the subject, but if you want really good metal. Living Sacrifice and their album "The Hammering Process" plus they are reuniting!

urbandictionary.com is a good source for slang, if youre not sure check it out.

Redneck-
Mildly offensive term for a lower class white person from the southeastern states of the USA. Derives from someone who spent a lot of time on manual labour outside and so received a "red neck" from the sun.

I picked up the 'producer edition' of the last LOG cd (its basically just the stems from the album in mp3's). The drums are for sure snapped to a grid but I was suprised at how 'loose' some of the guitar tracks were. I tried copying and pasting sections and flipping the phase to see if they copied and pasted parts and its all played... no copying and pasting of choruses or anything.

I'd say the new LOG cd is less pro tooled then your average modern metal record. Aside from the drums (and who doesn't BD drums on major label releases) it sounds like there's very little studio trickery other then a lot of punches and good takes.

I am a big LOG fan. I have actually seen them in concert 3 times. While I will say that yes they do Protools their albums, in concert they sound just as good. They are a very tight band and quite talented. Some people may not dig the music, but you have to give credit where credit is due.

That being said, I am a HUGE Pantera fan. And in my opinion, no one will be the next Pantera. Just like there will never be another Beatles or Led Zep.

My two cents.

that's because they're most likely playing along with their own pro tools tracks -
like everyone else - only maybe they do it a little better than the average signed live band heh

these days there's very little difference between major label / major indie metal bands
and major label / major indie pop stars, in terms of live production...in MANY cases.

think the label's going to sit back and have their band suck live?

think again......you can also think twice about who's actually playing the parts
on many of those records, because believe me, if the players can't pull it off,
the label producers will make damn sure SOMEONE will.

(gee why does that snare sound so fat?.....
i can't believe he gets that kickdrum sound live - that's sick.....
and those GUITARS.....holy f*ck....hmmmmm, i wonder....
well....i produce backing tracks for live rock and pop bands,
and people come up to me after the shows - ENGINEERS, mind you,
and are like HOLY SH*T - the drums sound AWESOME -
yeah?.. that's because there are like 15 more drum kits behind the frikkin drummer,
how does he GET those TOMS to sound like that LIVE??
....i need the number of your SOUND guy.....hilarious...
yeah, it's because we use vintage u47s on the kit.. and aurora pres..heh....)

LOG definetly arent playing to tracks live. Those guitar players are very very tight and take what they do seriously.

Its not like their music is that complex that really solid well rehearsed players cant pull it off live..

Pantera - best band in the world for me.
Special about them: they groove like hell. good songs. most metal bands sound like midiplaybacks compared to that.
I like pop and classical and anything that touches me. I just never fealt that brutal force in any music before or ever since.

what are log supposed to have to do with them?

They release 2 tapes of the Glam metal stuff, that you will never find. I remember people telling me back in the day how heavy Pantera was....at the time I didnt know they did a metal 180......
they have 4+ glam records. You can still buy 3 of them. I have all of them. It's more like priest than glam. lyrics are corny. But so are 95% of metal lyrics. And so are 99% of ALL lyrics.

Who cares. If a bands' music takes you somewhere then they are a good band.

As far as pure metal goes there are really only 5 or 6 bands that are not contrived or cliche. Everything that's come out since 1990 or so falls under the category of cliche'. It's all been done and it's all been done better.

I like Pantera, they obviously had there influences. Dime was Hetfield to the bone with Randy or Eddie lead playing thrown in. Lamb is just a polished Slayer with a Phil Anselmo type Extreme metal singer.

Everyone knows Pantera was just a ripoff of Metallica and Exhorder. But I love them just the same

I definately hear Pantera in Lamb Of God. That`s a good thing in my book.
I also hear some Metallica (Justice) and even some Mega (Rust) ....

Pantera is better than any metal band out right now. Metal won't die, but right now metal sucks....Its mostly your guys fault! There is too much production, beat detecting and bull**** in it right now. Metal should be raw, with mistakes (like Slayer, decade of aggression)....bands these days have nothing to say, or think they're vampires...lame! dfegad

Agree...that goes for most metal right now....


When Lombardo came back, they beat detected him, and now he sounds no different then Bostaph. Lombardo is one of the few heavy drummers who has a groove, even when he is thrashing. Now, slayer has been overproduced I hate to say...quit making records for robots PEOPLE!

You've got to be kidding. Willie Adler and Mark morton are both awesome guitarists and they are as different to each other in style and writing as they are to Dimebag. Dimebag is awesome, but so are Mark and Willie. They can pull out some brutal technical riffs. Dimebags talent to me truelly lied in his ability to make a really simple riff completley catchy, groovy and infectious. Most simple riff are boring but Dimebags came from the heart. I think LOG lack heart compared to Dimebag, but thats not all playing guitar is about. Its a big part but not everything.

The last post on this thread was almost 2 years ago before mine. Since then LOG have brought out Wrath. To all you people who just put down Sacrament as an excercise in post production, what do you think of Wrath?
