Supporting their latest album release "VII: Sturm und Drang", Lamb of God came to Seattle with some old-school rockers Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity opening to abuse ears and bodies in the near sold-out Washington Music Theatre (WaMu) at Century Link Field

The killer combination of multimedia visual screens and candles lining the whole front of the stage, Lamb of God gave the crowd lots to see, feel and hear running through a set that covered many of LOG's classic crushers and newest tracks: Walk with Me in Hell/Ruin/512/Ghost Walking/Now You've Got Something to Die For/Still Echoes/Descending/The Faded Line/Blacken the Cursed Sun/Anthropoid/Hourglass - Encore: Vigil/Laid to Rest/Redneck.

Super happy within my first three songs of shooting that "512" off the new album was one of them. Love this track! "512" standing for Randy Blythe's prison cell number when he was falsely accused in the Czech Republic of pushing a fan offstage causing injuries that led to his death. Check out this 6.8.15 Rolling Stone article explaining his experience: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/lamb-of-god-on-how-prison-inspire...

The stage is Randy's physical and emotional outlet. You won't see very many 45yo guys or even anyone 1/2 his age running around and jumping on that stage like he does! "AIR BLYTHE" was in full effect tonight as you can see with some of my photos in my KISW.com {Click Here} and Facebook {Click Here} photo galleries! This was pretty much the last show in the U.S. for this tour leg with openers Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity as they head to Canada for 6 more dates. Both bands somewhat older schooled with Clutch heyday in the 90s and Corrosion of Conformity in the 80s. Both bands gave short great sets but I wasn't really in the mood for those hard rock/metal styles knowing this was a Lamb of God gig. I wanted HEAVY s**t!! 

 

Nice to see drummer Chris Adler behind the drums as I thought Megadeth might have taken him for their current tour as he played on the new Megadeth album. All in all it was a great show but Lamb of God really proved they are in a league of their own when it comes to aggressive sounding power, groove, thrash metal.
