Lamb of God

Different fans have different demands, which is why Lamb of God have decided to celebrate their 15th anniversary as a band by releasing seven different 'Hourglass' career retrospectives. Packages range from the single-CD releases to multi-disc vinyl and CD sets loaded with fan collectibles.

'Hourglass' will be released in multiple formats, giving the band's fans an opportunity to experience the music in compact disc, vinyl and digital configurations. In addition, there will be two deluxe packages, including extra goodies and groundbreaking packaging.

The releases

'Hourglass: Vol. 2 -- The Epic Years'
