Lamb of God's clock says it's time to buy more stuff!

If nothing more than to give the band something to tour behind while they're on the Mayhemfest this year, Lamb of God will be releasing an anthology set to commemorate their 15th anniversary. And boy oh boy, do they wanna rake in the dough. The anthology, titled Hourglass, will come in an assortment of bundles. Some cheap, others second mortgage worthy.

The whole shibang will be popping up on June 1st

Details and prices of each set , and my thoughts, after the jump.



Hourglass: Vol 1 - The Underground Years $10.99
13 of the most choice Lamb of God songs from their early years.  Culled from their first album Burn the Priest, their debut as Lamb of God, New American Gospel, and the album that put them on the map, As The Palaces Burn.

Hourglass: Vol 2 - The Epic Years $10.99
13 of the most choice Lamb of God songs from their career on Epic Records to this point.  Both Grammy nominated songs "Redneck" and "Set To Fail" are surrounded by fan favorite anthems and crushing riffs from Ashes Of The Wake to Sacrament to 2009's #2 debut Wrath.

Hourglass: The 3 CD Anthology $24.99
The ultimate Lamb of God retrospective.  44 tracks on 3 CDs.  Vol 1 and 2 join Vol 3 containing 18 rare or never heard before songs.  Included are Japanese issued bonus tracks, multiple rehearsal demos, along side the 8 songs recorded prior to Burn The Priest.

Hourglass: The Vinyl Box Set $119.99
All 6 Lamb of God Studio albums for the first time on 180 Gram vinyl in a Linen-wrapped collector’s box.  Includes Burn The Priest, New American Gospel, As The Palaces Burn, Ashes of the Wake, Sacrament, and Wrath.

Hourglass: The USB Box Set $99.99
All 6 Lamb of God studio albums on individual USB drives in a cigarette box shaped collectors package.  Includes Burn The Priest, New American Gospel, As The Palaces Burn, Ashes of the Wake, Sacrament, and Wrath.

Hourglass: The Deluxe Set $259.99
The collectors set including The 3 CD Anthology, The Vinyl Box set, The USB Box Set, and a Linen bound 144 page book of the art of Lamb of God as created by K3n Adams including  designs for tour passes, albums, t-shirts, and his commentary on them.

Hourglass: The Super Deluxe Set $999.99
The limited edition definitive collectors set including The 3 CD Anthology, The Vinyl Box Set, The USB set, the Book, a Mark Morton Signature Series Jackson Dominion D2, A 4’x6’ Pure American metal Flag, an Hourglass sticker, and a signed 8x10 in a personalized Lamb of God Coffin Case.

Holy, mama jama! Honestly, I don't know who's got $1000 bucks sitting around to buy that last set, but I'll bet that of someone does, then he's already bought all the band's cd's as it is. Still, there are a few superfans out there who might end up ponying up the money anyway. Hell, if I had the loot, I might of done it, but it looks like I'll be regulating myself to the 3-cd package, thanks to the promise of unheard tracks. Plus, I just gotta get me a black Wii, so, ya know, priorities.

I am a little iffy about the USB sticks, though. Most anyone who's bought a LOG album in the past has already burned them to their computer, thus having another digital version of their entire career a little useless. However, we haven't seen said USB sticks yet. Maybe they are solid gold and give incredible blow jobs. Who knows.
