In what seems to be a developing trend in metal, LAMB OF GOD has now joined the ranks of heavy bands like KORN, METALLICA, MEGADETH, AEROSMITH and JUDAS PRIEST as they will be releasing their own brand of ‘Memento Mori’ java. The band collaborated with the company ‘Nightflyer Roastworks’ to create the small batch single origin coffee which is grown in El Salvador and roasted in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“How did this come about?”, you may ask. “And where do I get me some of this piping hot brutality to add to my mundane morning routine?” Well it turns out that members of LAMB OF GOD would find themselves frequenting coffee shops around the world while on tour as well as brewing from their own in their espresso machine on the tour bus.
A longtime passion of guitarist Willie Adler, ‘Memento Mori’ brings to fruition years of home roasting and blending in a true collaboration with friend Paul Waggoner, owner of Nightflyer Roastworks and guitarist for BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME. (Paul has his own coffee too).

Speaking of LAMB OF GOD, the new, self-titled album dropped on June 19 via Epic Records in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe. The record kicks numerous asses and also marks LAMB OF GOD’s first recordings with Art Cruz, who joined the band in July 2019 as the replacement for the group’s founding drummer, Chris Adler.
Also, that North American tour we were all looking forward to with MEGADETH, TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES has been rescheduled for 2021.
In the meantime, maybe grab yourself some of that bulletproof brutalness known as ‘Memento Mori’ coffee to start your day off in a ‘groovey’ way.
