LAMB OF GOD, the groove metal powerhouse hailing from Richmond, VA, has digitally released their b-side track, “Evidence,” from the “Omens” album
Initially an exclusive track on the Japanese edition of the album, “Evidence” is now available to a broader audience, marking the first anniversary of “Omens” this weekend.
Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, “Omens” is a furious entry in the LAMB OF GOD catalog, perhaps the band’s angriest album yet.
“The world is crazy and keeps changing. ‘Omens‘ is a reaction to the state of the world,” explains vocalist D. Randall Blythe. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed off.”
“Omens” is also LAMB OF GOD‘s most diverse affair. The band tracked with longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (KORN, MEGADETH) live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORS, PINK FLOYD, RAMONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among others.
“The inner workings of the band have never been better,” explains guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in ‘Omens‘. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”
Fans can also catch LAMB OF GOD as they embark on their inaugural ‘Headbangers Boat‘ cruise later this month. This unique festival experience will feature two headline performances by Randy Blythe and the band, including a full live rendition of their gold-certified 2003 album, “Ashes Of The Wake.”
The ‘Headbangers Boat‘ cruise lineup boasts other renowned artists like MASTODON, TESTAMENT, HATEBREED and GWAR. Departing from Miami, FL on October 31st, it promises to be a thrilling metal voyage.
