Lamb of God, return on July 24th with their new LP, VII: Sturm and Drang, via Epic. The album features a few guests vocals, including an appearance by Deftones’ Chino Moreno on the new single, “Embers”.
“When the band wrote the music to that one, there were two different endings,” frontman Randy Blythe told Rolling Stone. “In one, it was ‘Lamb of God,’ like, boring, we’ve done it a million times. And then Mark [Morton] wrote this other beautiful, swelling thing, and I heard it when I was still down at the beach writing my book and listening to it. I’m a huge Deftones fan, and I could hear Chino’s vocals on it. One day, during the pre-production I come in and Mark and Josh [Wilbur, producer] are sitting there and they’re like, ‘What do you think about Chino doing vocals?’ I’m like, ‘Yes!’ Chino came and he sang me the melody he had in his mind, sort of nonsense words like how we singers do. So I took some fragments I had and made it fit. He crushed it.”
