On June 30th, Virginian metal titans Lamb of God brought their new American gospel to Full Force Festival at Ferropolis, Gräfenhainichen, Germany, playing a blistering 40-minute set comprised of eight fan-favorite songs (see the full set list below). Frontman Randy Blythe was in fine form, leaping off the drum riser, thrashing his long dreadlocks around and exhorting the crowd to join them in the all-out madness. Now, professionally shot video of the band’s entire performance has been released — check it out below.
Lamb of God are reportedly in the middle of work on their highly anticipated eighth studio album of original material, which has been rumored for a possible late-2o19 release date. No word yet on whether co-founding drummer Chris Adler, who has not been playing live with the group since 2018, will appear on the album. LOG’s forthcoming LP follows guitarist Mark Morton‘s first-ever solo album, which dropped earlier this year and notably includes the single “Cross Off” featuring guest vocals by the late, great Chester Bennington. The band’s own last release was the 2018 covers record, Legion: XX, issued under their original name Burn the Priest in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their one and only full-length under that moniker. The album featured renditions of songs by Bad Brains, Ministry, Quicksand, Melvins, Stormtroopers of Death and more.
