Lamb Of God, not to be confused with the nickname of that really famous guy with the beard
, is a five-piece metal band from Richmond, Virginia. They are considered the main band of the "New Wave of American Heavy Metal".
The band's current membership consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, drummer Chris Adler, and bassist John Campbell. They formed in 1990 as an instrumental band named Burn the Priest, later adding vocalist Blythe. Their debut album was the self-titled Burn the Priest
in 1998, which is now not technically self-titled because... yeah. Shortly afterwards, they changed their name to "Lamb of God" because the band thought the name "Burn the Priest" would lead their fans to do wrong things.
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.
