New LAMB OF GOD On The Way…New Side Project With Randy Featuring Samhain Member
- Posted on February 3, 2008
MTV.com recently sat down with front-man RANDY BLYTHE to discuss the recent happenings in the world of LAMB OF GOD and more.
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe recently checked in with Metal File about the Virginia metallers' next studio effort, which he said they'll embark on this year. "We're going to be writing a new record," he confirmed of the yet-untitled LP, adding that he's going to jet to Japan in February to "kick it with the wife" before putting his nose to the grindstone. "[I'm going to] try and take a deep breath for a few months before we start writing a new record," he said. "I figure we'll start heading into the … practice space in late March or something." Blythe also pulled back the curtain on a side project, revealing that he's been ganging up with Steve Zing, a founding member of Glenn Danzig's Samhain act. "I saw him and Danzig recently, and I'm going to do something kinda creepy with [Zing]," Blythe said. Adding to what looks to be a busy '08, he added, "I'm working on a lot of different writing projects with different magazines. I'm working on a comic book now as well." Lamb of God recently launched a contest with Sirius Satellite Radio and GarageBand for a contest that asks fans to remix a song from the band's 2006 album, Sacrament. Winners of the contest, which ends February 21, will win a trip to NYC to meet the band at the premiere of its forthcoming, yet-untitled spring DVD. Go here for more info. …
I don't know about you fans, but I am stoked to hear the Steve Zing and Randy Blythe collaboration. Not to mention how the boys in LOG have progressed since their last effort. I am, however, slightly afraid of what sort of tracks the fans have "created" in this the "Sacrament" contest. Its a great idea, if you consider the following remixes as great.
