New look at forthcoming Lamb of God documentary
Lamb of God fans are getting chills after the band released a trailer for the documentary As The Palaces Burn. The documentary features several other artists, including Slash, talking about the band’s prominence in the metal community. It also features fans from around the world expressing why they’re drawn to the heavy metal band. But more importantly, the film also covers, in detail with documentary video filmed on location, of front man Randy Blythe being put on trial in Prague for murder after a fan was thrown off a stage at a concert overseas. Blythe was eventually aquitted, but it makes for an amazing story—one that we’ll be able to see in select theaters and home release next year. The 10th anniversary edition of the album As the Palaces Burn is due out next month.
Oh, the conversations rock stars have when they’re drunk … We’re hearing details of what could be a bizarre concert lineup including the likes of Metallica, Green Day and … U2. Here’s the skinny. Several years ago in San Francisco, members of Metallica met up with Green Day and U2 for dinner. I mean, hey, if you’re in the same town why not hook up for dinner and drinks. Well, according to what Metallica’s Lars Ulrich told MTV News in the UK that they all had too much to drink and then when Lars woke up he was told they all agreed to tour together. Now, that was just some drunken conversation, right? Apparently, because Lars says they haven’t talked about it since, but he’s still up for it … we would too, but we’d also have to be pretty drunk.
