Earlier this week, it was reported that Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe tested positive for COVID and would need to step away from performing for an uncertain amount of time. Since then, the band have had the likes of Mark Hunter from Chimaira, Trivium singer Matt Heafy, and In Flames singer Anders Fridén step in to help cover vocal duties. There was one night on the tour where the band were unable to play at all due to not finding a temporary vocalist.
For last night’s show however, Joe Badolato of deathcore outfit Fit For An Autopsy was recruited to perform alongside Lamb of God. From the looks of the video below that features Badolato covering the band’s song “Laid To Rest” – he more than delivered.
