LAMB OF GOD is celebrating the release of the live edition of last year’s critically acclaimed self-titled album with a new lyrics video for the bonus track “Hyperthermic/Accelerate“. Check it out:
In addition to the lyric video, the band also debuted a new live quarantine session video for the track “Routes“, featuring a guest appearance by TESTAMENT vocalist Chuck Billy. “Routes” is taken from last year’s self-titled release and you can watch it out below.
“It’s always an honor to be asked to perform with LAMB OF GOD, especially on this song,” says Billy, who also lent his voice to the album version of the song. “It has such a deep meaning for me personally with my native American heritage. I’m happy Randy included me to get the message out about what on with Native Americans in the USA.”
Available today via Nuclear Blast Records, “Lamb Of God, Live At Richmond, VA” includes a live CD and DVD which features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September 2020, in which the band performed ‘Lamb Of God’ in full, plus an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512,” and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a newer song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the Bill & Ted Face The Music movie and soundtrack. The DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material.

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.
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.
