Lamb of God has shared the b-side of their album Ashes Of The Wakerecently. You can check out the lyric video for the song “Another Nail For Your Coffin” below.
Guitarist Mark Morton commented on why the song did not make the album:
Sometimes the reason songs get left off really just comes down to a vote. As I recall, there was some apprehension after I introduced that song, musically. The outro is this really soaring, kind of melodic, almost major-key piece. At the time, I think that some of the band members were a little apprehensive about stepping out of our lane to that degree.
Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie have released their new song recently. You can check out the lyric video for their song “Worship” featuring Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe below. The song is from the band’s latest album Ategnatoswhich was released earlier this month via Nuclear Blast.
Lamb of God guitairst Mark Morton have released the song he collaborated with the late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. You can check out the stream for the song “Cross Off” below. The song will appear on Morton’s debut solo album Anesthetic which is due out on March 1st.
Morton previously commented on working with Bennington:
I was really impressed for a guy at his level, at the place in the career he was at, someone of his stature and celebrity, to have that level of humility and commitment to come in there and treat this like it would be a Linkin Park song, or his own song or whatever.
I was pretty blown away by that. And it was immediate. Fifteen minutes after we met, we were standing over a table, one on either side, each with scraps of paper and pencil, crossing off words and trying different rhyme schemes and stuff.
