Metal Montag: Lamb of God

by Guest Blogger

By Mike T West.

Mein (Lamb of) Gott! This week we are dying both physically and musically as we spend the sabbath in the presence of Nintendocore leviathans HORSE The Band / northern UK mathcore heroes Rolo Tomassi, and also bear witness to dirty metal titans Lamb of God. Paint us excited.

This is all a walk in Gorlie park  for LoG frontman Randy Blythe, compared to the last 12 hellish months. Arrested in the Czech Republic for pushing a fan off stage and allegedly causing his subsequent death, Blythe spent five weeks in custody before finally being released and acquitted… with his band bankrupted by legal fees and forced to live under a bridge:

Sheesh! Now Lamb of God are back in Berlin for the first time in three years, in support of their seventh studio album, Resolution. Hopefully there will be time during the set for Mr. Blythe to give a reading from his forthcoming memoir – a literary circle pit if you will.

Joining them will be UK tech-metallers Sylosis, who hail from Berkshire – the “Hellmouth” of England – and hometown metalcore sprogs, War From A Harlots Mouth – you know, for the kids.

Lamb Of God are playing tomorrow night at C-Club Columbiadamm 9-11, 10965 Berlin. Tickets are still available so come along and please stop us from ordering Jäger, for the love of Korean Jesus!
