LAMB OF GOD has revealed plans to issue a live album with two bonus tracks along with a DVD performance of ‘Lamb Of God’ on March 26th via Nuclear Blast.
Pre-orders for the set are available now, along with the bonus track Ghost Shaped People. The live CD and DVD features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September 2020, in which the band performed their album ‘Lamb Of God’ in full, plus an encore of four songs. The DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material.
In addition, the band has unveiled a visualizer for Ghost Shaped People that you can watch here:
Originally, released June 19 of last year, LAMB OF GOD’s first new album in five years was met with universal acclaim – not only among major rock journalists, but with all strata of metal fans around the world. It charted at # 5 on the Official ARIA Albums chart.
But critics, media and the industry aside, perhaps the most telling statistic is the year-end US Metal Radio chart, where the new album dominated at #1 by a massive margin (over 2,000 more spins than the album at #2). ‘Lamb Of God’ spent nine weeks in the #1 spot and never left the top 10 since debuting on the chart in February. Metal Radio is the lifeblood of the US metal world, largely staffed by college students and regional tastemakers, playing the music that they know their local metal fans want to hear.
LAMB OF GOD’s self- titled album reached the coveted #1 spot on Consequence of Sound’s Top 30 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2020, stating, “Along with bringing in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, LAMB OF GOD have been one of music’s most important acts over the past 20 years. From their phenomenal instrumentation to the potency of their sociopolitical lyricism, LAMB OF GOD remain titans of the genre, continuing to craft remarkable works of thrilling and captivating adrenaline… also proves to be a profound work of heavy metal… perhaps the most important metal album of 2020. It’s not only the album of LAMB OF GOD’s career, but the heavy album of the year.”
At iTunes, LAMB OF GOD has landed at number one on the Overall, Rock and Metal iTunes album chart upon release.
