Lamb Of God Team Up With Fever 333’s Jason Aalon Butler For Quarantine Cover Of Bad Brains’ “I Against I”

Lamb Of God have teamed up with Fever 333’s Jason Aalon Butler for a quarantine cover of Bad Brains‘ “I Against I.“ You can check that out below:

Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe commented:

“The idea to cover ‘I Against I‘ goes back at least 20 years to a camping trip the band was on. Mark & I were sitting in the back of our buddy’s Jeep ripping through the mountains, Bad Brains was cranking on the stereo, & I was singing along to that particular song. Mark looked over at me & said ‘We should cover that tune’ So we thought about it for a couple of decades and finally got around to doing it for the ‘Burn The Priest Legion: XX‘ record (hey, sometimes we move a little slow…)

As we all know, this pandemic has sucked for live music, but the quarantine jams bands have been doing have been pretty fun, especially when you bring in guests. I saw Fever 333 for the first time at the Sonic Temple fest— I had never listened to them, but I was blown away by their live show. I remember thinking ‘Man, these dudes are WILD- their energy reminds me of the punk shows I saw in the 80’s’ and I’ve been friends with those dudes from that day. I even texted Darryl from Bad Brains that afternoon to tell him to check them out. It was only natural to ask Jason to join us & bring that energy to this song by the almighty Bad Brains, my favorite band of all time.”

Butler added:

“It is truly an honor to be a part of this one as I have the utmost respect for Randy and the boys since becoming homies after having my mind blown when I looked over at the side of the stage at Sonic Temple Fest and saw him watching us play. It’s been a pleasure getting to know him and an honor to rock L.O.G. celebrating one of the most important punk rock/musical acts of all time Bad Brains. From legends to legends to the student. All love.”

Lamb Of God Premiere “Resurrection Man” Live Video

Lamb Of God have shared footage of “Resurrection Man” from their new live album/film “Live In Richmond, VA.” That effort was recorded during the band’s September 18, 2020 livestream concert at The Broadberry in Richmond, VA and it was officially released on March 26 alongside a new deluxe edition of their 2020 self-titled album. Guitarist Mark Morton said the following:

“‘Resurrection Man’ has been a fun song to watch the fan reaction to and a fun one to play live for the first time. We wrote the music for that song quickly and spontaneously in pretty much an afternoon in our jam room. Willie freestyled the opening riff and we built from there. Sometimes it’s cool to just let stuff flow without overthinking things to death. I feel like ‘Resurrection Man’ is a great example of that.”

Chris Adler Says Lamb Of God Was “Toxic” And That The Goal Of Firstborne “Is To Have Fun”

During an appearance on The MetalSucks Quarantinecast, Chris Adler discussed his departure from Lamb Of God and his latest project Firstborne. According to the drummer, Lamb Of God had become “toxic” and he just wants “to have fun” with Firstborne.

Adler said the following:

“Now [discovering Myrone’s music] didn’t necessarily start us off into a process of making music together. Shortly after that was kind of my departure from Lamb where it’s like, well I’m not leaving this ’cause I don’t want to play music and I’m not leaving this ’cause I don’t want to play the kind of music Lamb is playing. I’m leaving this ’cause… it’s just toxic. Everywhere. Everything. And I’ve got to be a better father, husband, person than what this is dragging me into.

And one of the things that happened in this conversation that I was having with Myrone — which I still think back on, and at the time I didn’t really quite understand it as much as I do now — I asked him, ‘Do you wanna get together and maybe throw some files around and see what happens?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, but it’s gotta be fun.’ He didn’t say it [like that], but I understood what he was saying.

What I do and what I’m known for is not particularly… like, it’s not a birthday party, it’s not fun. That doesn’t mean… If you’re good at addition it doesn’t mean you should stop there and keep doing addition for the rest of your life. Maybe you should take algebra, maybe you should take calculus, let’s move on from that point. And I know I’m known for that particular thing, but I was like, ‘Oh man, I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve actually had fun doing this.’ And I love that vibe about him. It was just great to think about that for a second. Oh wait, I can still, the same way I wanted to when I was 14, 15, make a band and have fun?

That was off the radar at that point because success had bred so much jadedness with everybody, and the whole industry, as we all know, is just brutal. In that we’re able to do it on our own, we’re just having fun. So it was a really great connect that we had in that way.

Then we’re trying to figure out, cause I’m sure Myrone, at that point, at many points, had felt like — and Girish [Pradan, vocals] and James [LoMenzo, bass] — I remember James coming up to me and being like, ‘Dude, are you sure you wanna do this? Your [fans] don’t understand what it is to enjoy music.’ I’m not doing this for a popularity contest. I always want to have fun doing this. And we did in Lamb of God for a very long time but it got bogged down in everything else and what we’re supposed to do and who we supposedly are. I love this idea about stretching it out.”

He also added the following about the reception Firstborne have received:

“There’s a lot of hate [from fans] like, ‘Oh my god, you left Lamb of God for this, what the fuck is this?’ It’s like, ‘Uhh… fun?’ Like… I’m just living my life with a smile. Because before it was like frown-town all the time. Like what the hell is going on here, we don’t know what the hell is going on, hopefully everybody beats the shit out of each other and we just get a check. So you know, it’s just time for me as an adult to kind of move on.”

Guitarist Willie Adler commented:

“This album, and in particular this deluxe edition, is something I’m incredibly proud of. Throughout the process of writing, recording and the subsequent filming of the live stream, I knew we were creating much more than a collection of songs. Much more than a simple streamed performance. This was focused energy. Energy that, to me, is very tangible. And now, more than ever, in an era where human interaction is so limited, art…. be it music, visual or otherwise, is a human connection point. And we need as much of that as possible! I hope everyone enjoys this deluxe edition as much as we enjoy

Lamb Of God Announce Second Coffee Blend “Overlord”

Lamb Of God have teamed up with Nightflyer Roastworks once again to create another coffee blend. The latest beverage, which is called “Overlord Dark Roast,” “blends beans from Brazil, El Salvador and Guatemala to create a robust coffee with very rich, dark chocolatey notes that’s a little smoky.” You can get some for yourself HERE. Randy Blythe commented:

“I loved what Willie [Adler] came up with for Memento Mori, but I have been lobbying him to make a dark roast ever since. I like my coffee strong, dark and black, like my soul. Overlord checks those boxes!”
