Richmond, VA natives Lamb Of God originally formed in 1994 as Burn The Priest while in college together at Virginia Commonwealth University, initially performing in meagre venues and hocking rough demos amongst the local scene. In 1998 the band changed their moniker to Lamb Of God, which would mark their impending ascension to top tier status while maintaining a true and constant line-up of members and increasingly growing fanbase; a rarity in modern music. The band’s first major release, 2000’s ‘New American Gospel’, was immediately touted as an instant metal classic.

In 2007, just a short time after putting out the monumentally successful albums ‘Ashes Of The Wake’ (2004) and ‘Sacrament’ (2006), Lamb Of God were honoured with a Grammy nomination for the track ‘Redneck’. This would mark the first of four Grammy nominations for the band. The fourth nomination arrived for the band’s ‘Ghost Walking’ track, cut from their 2012 album ‘Resolution’. With their seventh full length - and first UK Top 10 - album ‘VII: Sturm Und Drang’, the five-piece proved their lasting consistency by offering another blistering contribution of the highest quality heavy metal, a record that no one other than Lamb Of God could truly execute. Frontman Randy Blythe states, “This is a very, very dark, yet sonically highly varied, record.”

Having travelled the globe with countless world tours and millions of albums sold, all the while overcoming countless hurdles ranging from personal demons to vocalist Randy Blythe’s 2013 trial in Prague (which resulted in the acclaimed 2014 full length feature documentary ‘As The Palaces Burn’, and upcoming book, ‘Dark Days: A Memoir’, authored by the frontman), Lamb Of God stand the test of time as the biggest, most influential heavy metal band of the new millennium.
