LAMB OF GOD have released a new song “Nevermore.” The single is taken from band’s upcoming album, Omens, which will be released on October 7 via Epic Records.
Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, Omens is a furious entry in the LAMB OF GOD catalog, perhaps the band’s angriest album yet.
Band’s vocalist Randy Blythe comments: “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world. It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed off.”
Omens is also LAMB OF GOD‘s most diverse affair. The band tracked with longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (KORN, MEGADETH) live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORS, PINK FLOYD, RAMONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among others.
“The inner workings of the band have never been better,” says guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in Omens. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”
Omens track listing:
03. To The Grave
07. Ill Designs
09. Denial Mechanism
10. September Song
