In an update posted on Facebook, the band said that producer Josh Wilbur (who also produced ‘Wrath’ and ‘Resolution’) has given the original ‘As the Palaces Burn’ album a, “…full-on, ass kicking remix and remaster. Front-to-back, top to bottom. The remixed version of Palaces is now how they had originally intended it to be.”
The re-release will also feature three previously unreleased tracks, new linear notes and a new 70 minute documentary on the making of the album, featuring interviews with the band members, original producer Devin Townsend and current producer Josh Wilbur.
Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler offered the following on the special release: “we are lucky to have the opportunity, a decade after our first attempt, to bring what I consider to be our master work up to speed sonically. Ever since the original release we’ve been distraught about the sonic qualities of ‘As the Palaces Burn’.
“The band had captured lightening in a bottle and the budget limitation of a sophomore album turned our lightening into a firefly in a jar. The songs are undeniable and we’ve always been very proud of how this album launched our career. It feels appropriate to revisit now that we can and give this very special album the chance to reach our original hopes and it’s true potential.”
The 10th Anniversary Edition of ‘As The Palaces Burn’ will be released in November and is available for pre-order now in a variety of packages. Click here for further details.
