Prior to the long awaited arrival of Lamb of God to hit the stage, event staff at the venue were busy hosing down the hot, sweaty, heat exhausted fans who were just moshing to Children of Bodom. The closer it came to LOG’s appearance, the more dazed the crowd looked, the more chanting “Lamb of God, Lamb of God, Lamb of God…” was heard. The longer they waited, the more the anticipation grew and the louder the chanting became. The crowd was pushing forward and the fans in the very front were being almost crushed up against the barricade. Event staff asked several fans if they wanted to be pulled out, but these die-hards were not moving - no matter what.

Finally it was about time for LOG’s appearance. Unfortunately, however, we ended up getting El Fucko first. What is an El Fucko you ask? Well, let me just tell you, it is a idiotic guy with a lame hockey mask that comes out and completely insults the crowd to get them pissed off before the band emerges. Personally, I think we could have done without El Fucko. His only accomplishment was making the band look bad.

Lamb of God finally hit the stage and the crowd went insane as they started with Ruin from their album As the Palaces Burn. Also played from this album (in no particular order) was the title track, 11th Hour, and Vigil. The crowd seemed to go wild with the double-bass kick assault of drummer Chris Adler and the intricate guitar riffs from Willie Adler and Mark Morton.

The band also played Hourglass, Laid To Rest, Now You’ve Got Something To Die For, What I’ve Become and The Faded line off the their first Sony/Epic Album Ashes of the Wake.

It is worthwhile to note however, that the band took a concert goer who was in a wheelchair from the side of the pit and brought him up on stage. They wheeled him to the side of the stage for him to enjoy the show. This display of class did shine through El Fucko’s previous ranting.

The moshing was continuous and the crowd vigorous even in the humid, record breaking, 118-degree heat. It seemed nothing was slowing them down when Lamb of God was blasting their eardrums with the devilish growl of Randy Blythe on vocals and John Campbell on bass. The final song was Redneck off the band’s upcoming release Sacrament, due out August 22, 2006 which will be released as a CD and a DVD deluxe edition featuring over 90 minutes of special behind the scenes footage of the making of the album Sacrament.

This Richmond, Virginia based band has been labeled as the “Future of American Metal” and really seem to have a “cult following” as even after they were long gone off stage, the fans were wandering around zombie-like chanting “Lamb of God, Lamb of God…”
