LAMB OF GOD's 2006 album "Sacrament" was certified gold by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) on September 27 for sales in excess of half a million copies.
The RIAA developed its gold and platinum awards program in 1958 to honor artists and create a standard by which to measure the commercial success of a sound recording. The program trademarked the gold record and formalized the industry practice of presenting awards to artists for music sales achievements.
Presently, the RIAA awards a gold honor for 500,000 units sold, a platinum honor for 1 million units sold and a diamond award for more than 10 million units sold. One equivalent album unit is equal to one album sale, 10 tracks sold from an album, or 1,500 on-demand audio and/or video streams from an album.
LAMB OF GOD previously scored a gold album for its 2004 LP "Ashes Of The Wake", which was certified in 2016. They have also landed platinum awards for their home video releases "Walk With Me In Hell" and "Killadelphia".
"Sacrament" was the second Epic Records studio release from LAMB OF GOD. It was produced by Machine, who had previously worked with CLUTCH, KING CRIMSON, EIGHTEEN VISIONS and EVERY TIME I DIE.
