And in the five years since the last album, fans have been patient. And the world at large has only grown more urgent, with more potential threats, conflict and division. Enter LAMB OF GOD, with a brand new album in 2020. A band that has never shrunk from it’s role in channeling the turmoil and crisis on display in this world, into cathartic, aggressive, and modern heavy metal.

Lyrically, vocalist Randy Blythe pulls no punches, with so much to confront at this moment in history.
