30 day challenge day 11: A song from your favourite band
Lamb of God—Descending
My favourite band, huh? There’s a tricky one.
I first came across Lamb of God in 2004 while browsing in the (now-gone) HMV store in the Gyle shopping centre in Edinburgh. Two of their albums, As The Palaces Burn (2003) and Ashes of the Wake (2004), were on the end-of-aisle display in the metal section of the store.
I bought them both because I liked the name and the packaging was intriguing. They looked like promisingly-good listens. Little did I know just how good.
I raced back to the car. Popped it into the stereo and… wow!
Their next album Sacrament (2006) was outstanding. Definitely one of my favourite albums ever, and a certain contender for being played on Desert Island Discs if they ever run out of guests and invite me on. Lamb of God on BBC Radio 4: now that would be cool!
