Lamb Of God
Survivors of sturm und drang
When Lamb Of God came over with Megadeth last November, they gave the headliners a run for their money, Randy Blythe commanding the stage with a determination that remains undimmed despite circumstance and time. After the frontman stood trial in Prague and was acquitted for the sad death of fan Daniel Nosek, the band remarked that touring was their livelihood. Watching them play, it’s clear that it’s also their lifeblood. With more than 50 shows already this year, they continue to be one of metal’s most hardworking and vital bands.
“On behalf of the rest of my band and our crew, who are very important in the live performance process, we’re thrilled to have even been considered,” guitarist Mark Morton tells us. “Thank you for making us your favourite live act this year.”
