John Campbell On Possibility Of Lamb Of God Utilizing More Clean Vocals On Future Releases: “There Is No Telling, But I Would Imagine Yes”

Lamb Of God began incorporating clean vocals with “Overlord”, off their 2015 album “VII: Sturm Und Drang,” and then utilized them again on the title track of their 2016 EP “The Duke.” With this in mind, John Campbell was asked if the band were planning on exploring this type of singing in further releases, during a chat with The Salt Lake Tribune. He said the following:

“There is no telling, but I would imagine yes, probably. I think some people still have a hard time with [it]. But we’re always trying to evolve and come up with new ways to present heavy music. Not that it gets boring, but, you know, we don’t want to go out there and play the same songs every night, or play the same set and have every song be exactly the same. It’s nice to have some different emotions, some different dynamics to the set.”

Watch Behemoth’s Nergal Join Slayer Onstage For “Evil Has No Boundaries”

During Slayer’s VIP soundcheck at the Kettlehouse Amphitheater in Bonner, MT on August 17, Behemoth’s Nergal joined Slayer onstage for a performance of “Evil Has No Boundaries.“ You can see some fan-filmed footage of that below:

"Evil has no boundries". That's the song my affair with Slayer has begun ages ago. I must have been 8 or 9 years old I guess when I heard it on a pirate cassette. Didn't know much of an English language so we would sing whatever we hear. And the word EVIL reminded us how PIWO (beer) sounded phonetically! We would fuck around and sing "PIWO!!! PIWO!!! PIWO!!!" instead until years later when we realised its meaning. The word EVIL would eventually be the key word to define my whole carieer with the band on so many levels and beyond. When I told that story to Kerry and Gary they were like: Let's do it! We r in!!! I already knew the lyrics by heart and here I am… sharing the stage with one of the best bands on the planet in one of my favorite songs! Dunno how I'm gonna top it but that's not the case now. Living the fuckin' dream and enjoying the fuck out of it🤘🤜🖤 @slayerbandofficial @paulbostaphofficial

Bill Ward On His Absence From Black Sabbath’s Final Tour: “What They Believe Is Quite Opposite From My Experience”

Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi recently discussed former drummer Bill Ward‘s absence from the band’s tour during a Q&A in London, England, and said that it was “too risky” to take Ward out, due to his health, and that the drummer probably didn’t “realize how hard it would have been on him.” Now, Ward, who previously claimed his absence was due to a bad contract, has fired back with the beloe Facebook post:
