* MetalScream: The general vocal style is a type 3, though it's not so much a scream as... well, who the fuck knows. A growl? A shout? What the fuck is it? The fact that Randy can actually put some musical pitch into it doesn't help the discussion. With that said, he does occasionally use actual screams alongside the growl/shout/whatever.

* {{Expy}}: The video for "Redneck" is similar to Music/{{Meshuggah}}'s video for "New Millennium Cyanide Christ", which featured the band sitting around on their bus air-instrumenting(even the drummer!) and Jens screaming into a pen instead of a microphone. [=LoG=] openly worships Meshuggah, but they took it UpToEleven in their version by being booked to play a little girl's birthday party and having strippers and beer on the bus.

In January 2014, Randy Blythe announced that he would be taking a break from music, and that there would be no new material from the band for quite some time. Drummer Chris Adler later confirmed this in an interview, stating that legal fees incurred from Randy's trial made a serious dent in the band's finances and they were taking an extended break. The break seems to be over as of April 2015, as the band has been posting pictures of their studio gear and talking about an eighth album on Instagram.

** Averted completely, finally, Randy having several tracks where he spoke but never sang, with "Insurrection" off ''Resolution''. The song opens with clean vocals before the growl-scream starts. Also, "Overlord" is almost entirely clean sung.

Added DiffLines:

** The new album ''VII: Sturm und Drang'' might take this a step further with more grisly lyrics inspired by Randy's 2012 imprisonment in the Czech Republic.

* {{Expy}}: In the video for "Redneck", the band members looked suspiciously similar to the members of another groove metal band: Music/{{Meshuggah}}. Randy even resembled Meshuggah frontman Jens Kidman to a great extent. Some scenes in the video appeared similar to Meshuggah's video for "New Millennium Cyanide Christ".
** Justified as [=LoG=] openly worships Meshuggah.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Bassist John Campbell looks to be somewhere in his mid-early 60's because of his distinctive white hair. He's only 41.
** Randy himself looks to be in his early fifties at times. He's only 43.
