The international press is confident of the album’s high quality: “LOG finally returns and the catchy songs are heavier and more melodic than ever - at the same time!“ INFERNO (FIN) / Timo Isoaho “»VII: Sturm Und Drang« is proof that LAMB OF GOD are among the trend setters in extreme metal. Besides the typical trademark sound the Virginia-based quintet delivers quite some surprises and opens another chapter in the band’s history.“ ROCK HARD (D) / Thomas Kupfer “That’s how groove metal has to sound these days! Ra wand dirty!“ RCN (D) / Michel Müller “Exploring new fields, while staying true to the roots! The kings of NWOAHM are back with a new album reeking of pure strength!“ METAL HAMMER (N) “Powerful, intense, with thought-provoking lyrics and sharp as ever, but with a little twist here and there. »VII: Sturm Und Drang« is all LAMB OF GOD fans could wish for.“ LORDS OF METAL (NL) / Patrick “Each song will blow your head off on the first listen while being technical enough to please all metalheads!“ MYROCK (F) »VII: Sturm Und Drang« is once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, CA.
