ALOL took some pointers from Lamb of God's Randy Blythe vocally while experimenting with melody, gang vocals and groove beats, resulting in their most vigorous effort to date. Self-produced by the band, Iron Gag even channels the southern feel and overall power of Pantera at times, and emerges from the metalcore echo chamber to open ears in a period that sees the genre bogged down by repetition. With this genre-bender in tow, metal's premier tie-dye loving stoners have re-invented the steel, so to speak.
