Official press release (Prosthetic Records):

Since the release of the record in 2000, the face of American metal has never been the same. Never ones to sacrifice underground credentials and a bludgeoning sound for commercial success, Lamb Of God instead brought success to the metal underground, opening the doors for their contemporaries and inspiring a legion of up-and-coming bands along the way. Quickly transforming from a group of Richmond, Virginia metalheads into one of heavy metal's most admired and influential bands of the last decade, Lamb Of God is now a living testament to the old motto "a little hard work goes a long way," and New American Gospel was only the beginning.

Remastered and repackaged with four bonus tracks, exclusive liner notes from the band, and the video for the proven classic "Black Label," alongside a re-imaging facelift from longtime band collaborator Ken Adams, Lamb Of God's now famous debut album finally gets the treatment it deserves on April 4, 2006. The music on New American Gospel has quickly become both essential and classic metal material, having already helped to revitalize and re-inspire a once stale American metal scene and assist in usher in this decade's New Wave of American Heavy Metal and forever leaving its mark on the worldwide metal scene. With the band's brand of death-influenced thrash metal with hardcore grooves, and a plethora of devastating live shows through the band’s diehard work ethic, Lamb Of God continues to wave the flag for uncompromisingly heavy music, even half a decade after the band’s breakthrough album.

Scheduled to tour throughout the summer of 2006 in support of a new album, never has there been a better time to unsheathe this long-deserved, updated take on a new American metal classic to the hordes of heavy music fans that have, since the release of New American Gospel half a decade ago, been inspired by the revolutionary and scene-leading band Lamb Of God has become today.
