“Resolution”, the new album from Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD, is likely to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on December 6 via Epic.
LAMB OF GOD‘s previous CD, “Wrath”, opened with around 68,000 units back in March 2009 to land at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart. This figure was roughly in line with the first-week tally registered by 2006’s “Sacrament”, which shifted around 63,000 units to enter the chart at No. 8. It also represented almost double the amount of records sold by its predecessor, “Ashes Of The Wake”, which premiered with 35,000 copies in September 2004.
“Resolution” was released in North America on January 24 via Epic Records (one day earlier internationally through Roadrunner Records). The CD was recorded at various studios in Virginia and New York with producer Josh Wilbur, who worked on the band’s last effort, 2009’s “Wrath”.
“Resolution” features 14 songs and comes in a digipack with artwork by longtime art director Ken Adams.

01. Straight For The Sun
