Lamb of God post a new video for “512”

New Lamb of God track titled “512” as been released and it sounds pretty badass.
Reported by  Rolling Stone, “512” was Blythe’s prison cell number while he was in Pankrác Prison in the Czech Republic after being charged for manslaughter in the death of a fan at a 2011 concert.  D. Randall Blythe was eventually found not guilty, and the new album, VII: Sturm und Drang, features lyrics Blythe wrote while incarcerated during that time. It seems to be a killer album so far, and the fact that Randy Blythe can write some powerful lyrics.  I’d say it’s safe to say that being in prison may have added fuel to Blythe’s  lyric writing fire. The band sounds more together than they have in the past as if this experience brought them closer and they were able to harness it and deliver something great. Check out the video. And be sure to ore order their new album.


New Lamb of God video underway?!?

This just in from Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler’s facebook page.

Lots going on around here these days! I’ve returned from a killer session with Megadeth and am straight back to work with Lamb of God. Today we are working on a music video to accompany the new record and gearing up to leave next week for our European run. Feeling very lucky to have so many amazing opportunities. There are lots of shows coming up and of course, the album release is right around the corner now. I feel very confident in the record – it’s sincere and it’s mean.

More will be revealed soon but I can tell you that I’m currently working very hard trying to figure out how to be in 2 places at the same time. Anyone that’s been paying attention can follow that…
Stay metal! ~Chris

So this is cool, the new song they have currently streaming is a killer track, so now i am curisou as to A) what song this video is for, and B) will it be out before the album release or the day of the album release. basically when we get to see this new video.

i will let you know more when i find out.


#TBT Metal Edition @archenemymetal @vehemenceaz @coalesceox @AtthegatesGBG @Lambofgod @neurosisoakland @InternalBLDNG @officialopeth @MounierFlo

So I figured why the hell not? If you listen to metal than surely you have those albums that you will go back and listen to and really bring you back. I know I do, and hearing about Vehemence putting out a new album, Neurosis doing a tour, and Agoraphobic Nosebleed playing at Maryland Deathfest. It really put me in the mood to listen to some good stuff I remember buying when it came out, and going to shows.

SO to start things off will be a video by Vehemence. This is called by your bedside off of the “ Helping the World to See” album;

Soundcloud for some more Vehemence songs;


Next will be a video by Coalesce, from the album “ 0:12 revolution in just listening” I couldn’t find any actual video footage of this song, but it’s a good listen.

Here’s a soundcloud link for a few other Coalesce songs;


Now bringing it back to 1995 we have At the gates, Blinded by Fear off of the “ Slaughter of the Soul album” This album was one of those monumental albums. I remember picking up an Earache records Compilation that had this song on it.


Now this is only going back to 2003 but “ As the Palaces Burn” came out while I was in college. And this album was one of the albums that I would listen to , while getting pumped up before my band would play a show. After my sound check I would play a song form this album or “ New American Gospel” theres something about how Chris Adler plays the drums I dig his style. At the time he didn’t do any blast beats or anything, it was just drums with great fills and solid timing.   So here is the song “ Ruin”


And here is a live performance of O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E

Now it brings me to Neurosis, this song “ Under the Surface” is what got me into these guys. There was something dark yet powerful about this song.

Here it is off of the “ Times of Grace” album


Next is a band from the earlier days of metalcore, these guys were one of those bands you listen to this song “ Bitter” and you can see how far the Metalcore genre has come. Whether some of the newer bands ever listened to them or not, I would say these guys had a big influence one way or another.

Here it is Bitter off the “ Fifty ninth session” album


Now bringing metal back to the year 1999 where Internal Bleeding put out “ Driven to Conquer” So its not an official video, but it still allows you to take in the song “ Falling Down” with pretty good audio, and getting to see the album cover.


Lets go back to 1998 with Arch Enemy’s “ Stigmata” Album, the opening track “ Beast Of Man” when I first heard this song I just loved the guitars in this song. I was in the 8th hgrade and rocking out to this song off a Century Media Records compilation CD I bought at a Newbury comics. This compilation was the first of many that really got me into new bands. I think I paid $3.00 for 20 songs and this song was on there. I wish this video was an official video, however there is an “ Official” video from a few years ago. Obviously its with Angela Gossow on vocals, and from a different album. To me this may be an “ Official” video, but its not original.


At any rate here is the original song off of “ Stigmata”

And then off of “ Root of all evil” with Angela;

Another Band i got into early on was Opeth, i first heard them back in middle school and bought their album titled “Morningrise”  i really got into their epic metal sound, just heavy haunting menacing vocals at times and soft sincere vocals at others. this is an art form. i have never heard another band that has the bipolar, yet progressive metal song structure as Opeth.

Here is the track ” Advent” of the Morningrise album;


Now last but not least I bring you Cryptopsy with the album “ Whisper Supremecy” the track titled “ Emaciate” which happens to be the first song I ever heard, and was absolutely blown away by Flo’s drumming skills. Still listening to this song I am in awe of the talent Flo has. Now this is with a different vocalist at the time. I will not take away from current vocalist Matt’s talent. I personally really dig his vocals the best, I think all the other guys were great and added to the albums respectively. Since Matt McGachy has taken over vocal duties I think he really adds the missing element for vocals. He has great sound, great range, and can pull off the older songs great.

SO with that said here is “ Emaciate”


And don’t forget to check out Cryptopsy’s indiegogo page as they are trying to put out a new E.P. they are crowdfunding currently. Here is that link ;

So that wraps up this weeks  #TBT Throwback Thursday metal edition. Feel free to comment, offer some details about a metal song or album that brings you back to a time period every time you listen to it.
