LAMB OF GOD: 10th Anniversary Edition Of “As The Palaces Burn” To Be ReleasedFriday, 13th September 2013
Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD have announced the forthcoming November release of a special 10th Anniversary Edition of their album, As The Palaces Burn.
After some serious detective work tracking down the original album master tapes, the band went in with producer Josh Wilbur (who also produced Wrath and Resolution) and gave Palaces a full-on, ass kicking remix and remaster. Front-to-back, top to bottom. The remixed version of Palaces is now how they had originally intended it to be.
To go along with the album re-release, LAMB OF GOD also shot a brand new DVD documentary recounting the recording process and the stories behind the music which features new interviews with original producer DEVIN TOWNSEND, the band members and current producer, Josh Wilbur.
Drummer Chris Adler comments, “We are lucky to have the opportunity, a decade after our first attempt, to bring what I consider to be our master work up to speed sonically. Ever since the original release we’ve been distraught about the sonic qualities of As the Palaces Burn.
The band had captured lightening in a bottle and the budget limitation of a sophomore album turned our lightening into a firefly in a jar. The songs are undeniable and we’ve always been very proud of how this album launched our career. It feels appropriate to revisit now that we can and give this very special album the chance to reach our original hopes and it’s true potential.”
