The Duke is the new EP by LAMB OF GOD, and their sound has evolved to a fancier, sicker, heavier metal band. The Duke is a track about a fan, friend and brother who suffered of Leukemia, a form of cancer. This year cancer has hit the metal community really hard and not only are stars perishing from this blind disease but fans among the thousands. The Duke was released on Friday November 18th, 2016 via Epic Records. Stay tuned as a vinyl will also be released this coming Friday November 25th, via Epic Records.
The EP consist of a new track titled- “The Culling”, a fast and heavy track. This song is pure venom, ensuring a headbangers neck to be broken. The song is pure fury, an aggression that can be compared to that of the album As The Palaces Burn. In minute 1:55 there is a killer guitar solo, meanwhile Chris Adler is back on the drums punishing those drum heads vigorously. The Culling is proof that Lamb of God is simply improving their sound, giving the world a doze of relentless metal.
