Watching the long-awaited LAMB OF GOD documentary AS THE PALACES BURN this weekend, I pondered what I might say about it for those who have yet to see it. For those already familiar with the band and well-immersed in the culture of metal - possibly even music in general, at this point - the story of it's creation is already one that's familiar. Band decides to partner with filmmaker Don Argott for a documentary feature that focuses on the bond between band and fans around the Globe... and then the frontman from said band lands in prison in the Czech Republic, and everything changes.
The following message arrived at Rock Father HQ this morning regarding news that's been circulating since yesterday:
"LAMB OF GOD management will be issuing an official statement on Monday regarding the charges made against singer Randy Blythe. As no formal charges have yet been made and the case is only in the investigation stages, it would be premature to make an official statement filled with false truths or innuendos.
Presidential Candidate Randy Blythe of the band LAMB OF GOD has a pretty distinct vocal sound, and if you'd like to sound like him with the help of technology, now you can give it a shot. The band has just released an iOS app called VOX OF GOD, which creates ''a vocal simulation of Randy's signature scream/growl effect when the user records their voice using the app with their iPhone.'' I'm curious what my toddler would think of this.
