Throughout the history of heavy metal, there have been so many incredible frontmen; among the many names that come to mind, one frontman that pops up immediately for us is that of Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe. When you go to a Lamb Of God show, let alone that you are getting one hell of a performance from the instrumental side of the band, but Randy is like a whirlwind of energy. Alongside his vocal talents, he is constantly running and jumping about the stage like a madman – it’s great!

During a conversation with the Talk Toomey podcast, Lamb Of God drummer Art Cruz spoke to his fandom of Randy Blythe. Not only did he speak highly of Randy’s talents, but he said that he feels Blythe is the greatest frontman in heavy metal history. Here is everything Cruz had to say:

“I’m speaking as a fan as well – Randy Blythe, he’s the greatest frontman in heavy metal history, in my opinion. Not just on a vocal level, it’s more of a performer, you know what I’m saying? Metal bands need a performer and somebody like that that can really take it and lead you through this adventure. So I think between Randy and people like Jamey Jasta [of Hatebreed] and obviously Phil Anselmo [of Pantera], these are elite frontmen, in my opinion. That’s just in my generation too. You can go back even more and start going deep into the older stuff, the classic metal days and stuff like that. There’s a lot more performers happening now, I think. From the hardcore scene and that New Wave Of American Metal that came through, your frontman was kind of everything.”

To call someone the greatest in all of metal history is one hell of a statement. Considering the vast history of metal frontmen, who do you feel is the greatest of all time? Do you think it’s Randy Blythe?
