Lamb of God playing at Red Rocks May 24th
Going to Red Rocks Amphitheater to see Lamb of God the American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia! Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler. The band is considered a significant member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement. Since their formation, Lamb of God has released eight studio albums, one live album, one compilation album and three DVDs. The band’s cumulative sales equal almost two million in the United States, including one album certified Gold by the RIAA. In 2010 and 2011 the band received Grammy nominations for songs from their 2009 album Wrath. They also received a nomination in 2016 for their song “512”. Lamb of God has toured with the Ozzfest twice. Other appearances include Download Festival and Sonisphere Festival in the UK, Soundwave Festival, Mayhem Festival 2010 and Gigantour. From 2008 to 2010 they toured as part of Metallica‘s World Magnetic Tour. Although Lamb of God’s genre is a major point of disagreement among fans and critics alike, they are mainly considered groove metal. John Campbell, on the Walk With Me in Hell DVD, says that Lamb of God is “a punk band that plays heavy metal”, while Chris Adler refers to Sacrament as a speed metal album. Burn the Priest and early Lamb of God has been called a fusion thrash metal, death metal and hardcore punk, as well as “grindcore and death metal for the hardcore kids”. The band incorporates thrash metal elements, which was shown as a direction on Resolution and Wrath. The band has been described by a few critics as metalcore. We always stay at the Arrowhead Manor when seeing a concert at Red Rocks. Beautiful property and very easy to get to Red Rocks.
