Consistently boasting an angry brew of confrontational lyrics venomously gurgled over urgent, brooding guitars and technically precise, groove-oriented drums, LoG have become an easy-to-recognize brand. Without entirely abandoning those schematics, Wrath sees some song structure experimentation ("Broken Hands"), moving away from the verse-hook-verse standard ("Set to Fail"), while tightening the overall chops and incorporating outside influences ("Choke Sermon"). The whole package shows off why these guys are America's death metal darlings.
