Behemoth Prank Lamb Of God By Invading Their Set Dressed As Lambs

The first North American leg of Slayer‘s farewell tour wrapped up in Austin, TX last night (June 20), and Behemoth decided to pull an end of tour prank on Lamb Of God. While Lamb Of God were performing, people dressed as lambs, presumably members of Behemoth and their crew, invaded the stage and started dancing. Nergal shared footage of that:

U had it coming @lambofgod …🤪💩🤮❤️

Lamb Of God Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of Big Black‘s “Kerosene“

Lamb Of God have premiered a new video for their cover of Big Black‘s “Kerosene.“ This track will appear on their new Burn The Priest covers album “Legion: XX,“ which will be released tomorrow (May 18). Randy Blythe commented:

Although [Steve] Albini’s lyrics for ‘Kerosene’ evoke small-town boredom, there is no geography more terrifying to me than the ever-spreading and soulless cookie-cutter sprawl of suburbia. After I suggested a suburban location for the ‘Kerosene’ video, director Zev Deans took it to the next level with visual nods to one of my favorite films, the classic punk flick ‘Suburbia’. I first saw this film in the ’80s at the midnight movies at the Naro Theater in Deans’ hometown of Norfolk, Virginia, yet another example of synergy at work. Enjoy!”

Lamb Of God Stream Their Cover Of Bad Brains’ “I Against I”

Lamb Of God are streaming their cover of Bad Brains’ “I Against I.” This track will appear on their new Burn The Priest covers album “Legion: XX,“ which will be released on May 18. Randy Blythe, who has performed with Bad Brains in the past, had the following to say:

“It’s been a super-big honor to recently sing with one of my favorite bands of all time. Playing with the Bad Brains was an unearthly experience – trying to replace the fastest-singing human ever on songs like ‘Banned In DC‘ and ‘Pay To Cum.’ When it came time to choose our cover of ‘I Against I‘, I was trying not to sound like H.R., as he’s so unique, but yet also throwing in enough of his style to show respect to his unique voice, through my interpretation. To cover the Bad Brains can’t be a straight-forward cover, we had to nail it, and we did.”

Lamb Of God Stream Their Cover Of Big Black‘s “Kerosene“

Lamb Of God are streaming their cover of Big Black‘s “Kerosene.“ This track will appear on their new Burn The Priest covers album “Legion: XX,“ which will be released on May 18. Randy Blythe commented:

“Big Black is a very important band to me. When I was 12 and first listening to punk rock, I thought all punk came from England – but then through skating, I got into Black Flag and Bad Brains. I soon discovered this super-smart American punk rock – very caustic, and deeply sardonic about the murky side of the human experience. That got me into Steve Albini‘s future bands Shellac and Rapeman – and all the noisy smart punk rock on labels like AmRep and Touch & Go. ‘Kerosene‘ was one of their biggest songs, if they even had one. It speaks to small-town boredom.”

Mark Morton commented on the release:

“To truly understand the essence of the band Burn The Priest, one must first consider the landscape in which it began: the mid-’90s. Grunge and alternative music ruled the airwaves. Social media and the internet had yet to assume their role as our collective sources for entertainment and cultural exchange. It was a time when DIY ‘zines turned us on to new bands and regional scenes, and ‘copy and paste’ still implied a print shop and a glue stick.”

“As our sound and songs developed, so did our goals… we began playing basement parties and warehouse shows and in doing so, we realized that the energy we were creating was transferable. The shows we played in those squats and warehouses [in Philadelphia] and the people we met there are forever embedded in our collective consciousness and the DNA of our band.”

“Our inauspicious beginnings somehow grew into something none of us had ever even imagined possible, let alone aspired to, however, this is the story of Burn The Priest. The songs we chose to cover on this album reflect that story. They are touchstones from that point in time. The inspiration we gleaned from these bands and these songs carries through our work and our creative pursuits, even to this day. Many thanks to these bands for lighting our fire and endless gratitude to our fans around the world for keeping it lit.”

Randy Blythe also had the following to say about the “Inherit The Earth Cover”:

“I’ve been an Accused fan since I was 14 when they were on the ‘Thrasher Skate Rock Volume 3’ compilation with C.O.C. and all these amazing crossover bands. Their singer Blaine Cook was a huge influence on me, vocally.”

Chris Adler continued:

“‘Inherit The Earth’ hit me in the face soon after I managed to get my grubby mitts on the album sometime around ’88. I got The Accused record at a Yellow Banana record store on Route 1 south of DC while in route back from my ‘counselor’ to my home in Woodbridge, Virginia. I got home and grabbed my board and I rocked it on my Discman. At about 2:12 into the tune the clouds parted above me and on a loudspeaker, God bellowed down to me, ‘RECEIVE YOUR PURPOSE.’ That was the moment I knew that if I tried hard enough, I could convey myself and how I felt — with music. It will never be ‘ours,’ and we know that about all the tunes we’ve covered, but hopefully one of them hit you in the face as I had been, and God will part the clouds for you, too.”

Blythe also added;

“I have a radio show on Gimmie Radio, and [the station] is all metal shows except for mine. I do the punk rock show because I want to show the direct correlation between my band, and the punk scene going back to The MC5 and The Stooges. There is a direct link — look at old pictures of Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, and they’re wearing Misfits, D.R.I., and C.O.C. t-shirts. They fused the technicality of metal with the intensity of punk rock. Before them, metal was like in slow motion. Speed metal bands were listening to Discharge. I beat that drum all the time when I talk to kids.”

Lamb Of God Share Poster For Apparent Burn The Priest Event

After yesterday’s teasing, Lamb Of God have now shared a poster for an apparent Burn The Priest event in Richmond, VA on March 23. It definitely looks like a concert flyer, but there is no venue listed, and it says things are going down at 10 am, which is pretty early for a show. On top of that, it also says they will be joined by special guest “Martha Splatterhead,” who happens to be The Accused’s mascot. Stay tuned for more information.
