In celebration of the 15th anniversary of LAMB OF GOD‘s “Sacrament” album, Epic Records is issuing an anniversary edition and short documentary.
The remastered “Sacrament (15th Anniversary)” will contain the original album tracks, as well as previously unreleased bonus, live tracks recorded at House Of Vans Chicago in the band’s only live performance of 2020. The album is scheduled for a digital release on August 20, with a vinyl edition slated early next year. In addition, the “Making Of Sacrament” feature, originally included on the “Walk With Me In Hell” DVD, will premiere on YouTube on August 20. Watch the trailer below.
Originally released on August 22, 2006, “Sacrament” debuted at #8 and sold nearly 65,000 copies in its first week.

Released in April via Nuclear Blast Records, LAMB OF GOD‘s “Life In Richmond, VA” included a live version of the self-titled album with two bonus tracks, along with a DVD that features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September 2020, in which the band performed its latest album, “Lamb Of God,” in full, plus an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512”, and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a newer song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the “Bill & Ted Face The Music” movie and soundtrack. In addition, the DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material.
“Lamb Of God” was released in June 2020 via Epic Records in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe. The follow-up to “VII: Sturm Und Drang” marked LAMB OF GOD‘s first recordings with Art Cruz, who joined the band in July 2019 as the group’s founding drummer, Chris Adler.
“Lamb Of God” was recorded with longtime producer Josh Wilbur (KORN, MEGADETH, GOJIRA, TRIVIUM) and included special guest appearances by Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED) and Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT).
