LAMB OF GOD Partners with Specticast for Worldwide Distribution of “As The Palaces Burn” Feature Film

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Photos, Previews, Releases, Reviews, Shows, Uncategorized, Videos with tags , , , , on December 13, 2013 by Randy

LAMB OF GOD is pleased to announce that they have entered in to a worldwide distribution deal with Specticast (Led Zeppelin Celebration Day, Paul McCartney Rock Show) for their Don Argott (Last Days Here, Art of the Steal, School of Rock) directed feature film “As The Palaces Burn”. Filming for the feature began in 2012 and concluded in March of 2013.

“As The Palaces Burn”, not to be confused with the making-of documentary packaged with the recent re-release of the 2003 LAMB OF GODalbum of the same name, was conceived to be a documentary focused on the power of music and its impact on cultures around the world and its ability to bring together people of all nationalities regardless of religious or political differences. After a worldwide casting call, filming took place in Colombia, Venezuela, Israel, India, and the United States. As filming reached its conclusion, the documentary was forced to take a major turn when the band’s lead singer, Randy Blythe, was arrested in the Czech Republic and charged with the murder of a fan in June 2012. Granted unique access to Blythe’s continuing saga, Argott’s filming covered Blythe’s 38 day imprisonment in Prague, his release and the band’s return to live performances, and finally Blythe’s trial for murder in Prague in February 2013.

“As The Palaces Burn” will debut worldwide on February 27th. Following the film, a 30 minute Q&A with the entire band and director Don Argott will be shown. The Q&A was conducted by VH1 Classics Eddie Trunk and filmed at the final show of the band’s North American tour in support of their most recent release, Resolution.

The trailer for the film can be found at www.asthepalacesburn.com.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE to Play Special One-Off Date during CBGB Festival – Saturday, October 12th at Santos Party House

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, Featured, New Music, News, Shows with tags , , , , , , on October 9, 2013 by Randy

The Merciless Book of Metal Lists (Howie Abrams and Sacha Jenkins) presents a very special show for the 2013 CBGB Festival in NYC. This intimate affair features Massachusetts metal giants Killswitch Engage at the 400 capacity Santos Party House on Saturday October 12th.

 “This was originally going to be a secret show for our book release back in the Spring, but schedules didn’t allow for it, so we stayed on it, and decided to do it for CBGB Fest,” offers ‘The Merciless Book of Metal Lists’ author Howie Abrams. He adds, “Killswitch Engage is one of my favorite bands; one which has reinvigorated metal in recent years, and we’re proud to be working with them to make this great night happen.”

Killswitch Engage is about to head out on tour in the U.S. with the mighty Lamb of God, with support from Testament and Huntress, and also wanted to offer up this unique event to its most loyal fans. NYC and tri-state area fans can catch KsE on this upcoming tour at Roseland Ballroom in NYC (Oct-25) and at Starland Ballroom in NJ (Nov-22).

Additionally, proceeds from the show will be donated to The FC Foundation, an organization whose mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late-stage cancer diagnoses.

 Support for KsE will come from NYC’s heaviest ladies (and two gentlemen) Eye Ra Haze, whose atmospheric brand of metal compliments the evening perfectly.

 

KsE encourage fans attending the Santos show to bring proof of their purchased Roseland or Starland ticket to the merch area to claim a special KsE autographed item.

 

Tickets will be on sale Tuesday October 8th at 10 AM via: http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&eventId=3853324&pl=santos

 

All tickets are $25. Doors will open at 6:00 PM – show time is 7:15.

 

Santos Party House is located at 96 Lafayette Street and is easily accessible by subway.

 *Limited CBGB badges will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

LAMB OF GOD Responds to Malaysia Concert Ban

Posted in All Metal, News, Shows with tags on September 13, 2013 by Randy

As widely reported, LAMB OF GOD’s concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia scheduled for September 28th has been cancelled by the government, who refused to issue a permit for the show even though the concert had been on sale and had sold over 1,500 tickets.

LAMB OF GOD’s guitarist Mark Morton has issued the following statement regarding the decision by the Malaysian government. Shows scheduled in New Zealand, Australia, and Thailand will still be performed by the group:

“It is very evident (and a bit frustrating) that the groups, parties and powers that have taken the most offense to our music and lyrics, have themselves only made a passing glance at the content and meanings of those songs. We would invite anyone offended by our music to engage in a discussion regarding the true motivations behind our work, especially before publicly slandering us based on assumptions and shallow misinterpretation.

We sincerely apologize to our amazing fans in Malaysia for the cancellation. Many thanks to all who have spoken out in support of us through this.”
