An Instagram Live and Reddit AMA with vocalist Randy Blythe is planned for later in the week. Stay tuned and watch out on the band’s social media for more activity announcements and details!
In addition to the release of the album, on Friday LAMB OF GOD premiered a video for the bands’ fourth single, “Gears,” and lyric videos for five of the album’s tracks.
Watch the lyric videos below. The highly anticipated album from metal’s reigning kings immediately made waves, debuting at number one on Overall, Rock and Metal iTunes charts, and number one on Spotify’s Kickass Metal playlist.
The fact that the band’s eighth studio effort would warrant ‘self-titled’ status is a testament to the band’s pride and satisfaction with these songs and this period in their creativity.
A true collaboration between all members of the band, LAMB OF GOD’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what LAMB OF GOD are known for and upping the ante.
The rhythm section of John Campbell and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with LAMB OF GOD here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat, and expansive dynamics. Vocalist Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020.
