While the newly-remastered version of Lamb of God 's 2003 studio effort, As the Palaces Burn , won’t be available until November 11, you can hear a little preview of it now. The band is currently streaming every track from the upcoming release at RollingStone.com .
Drummer Chris Adler says the guys wanted to get a new version of the album out to fans because they weren’t thrilled with the way the album sounded when they first released it. "Ever since the original release, we've been distraught about the sonic qualities of As the Palaces Burn ,” he explains in a statement on the group’s website . "The band had captured lightning in a bottle and the budget limitation of a sophomore album turned our lightning into a firefly in a jar. It feels appropriate to revisit now that we can and give this very special album the chance to reach our original hopes and its true potential."
The As the Palaces Burn 10th anniversary edition contains the album’s original ten tracks, along with previously-unreleased demos of “Ruin,” “As the Palaces Burn,” and “Blood Junkie.” The set also comes with a DVD that features a new documentary in which the band members discuss recording the release, and the stories behind the tracks.
Lamb of God is currently trekking across North America with Killswitch Engage , Testament and Huntress . Visit Lamb-Of-God.com for the full itinerary.
