Richmond, Va., thrashers Lamb of God have long served as a vented spleen railing against corruption and abuse of power both personal and political.
This past summer, the band received more fuel for those fires when frontman Randy Blythe spent weeks in a Prague prison after being arrested for causing intentional bodily harm for allegedly throwing a fan off the stage at a concert resulting in the guy’s death.
Blythe is currently out on bail, and so Lamb of God has resumed touring in support their latest record, the assaultive “Resolution,” as they seek a measure of resolution of their own.
