Freak Out with Lamb of God
Dramaticism in life is unavoidable. Mostly because we’re bound to the earth by a meaty mass of chemicals imperceptible to most of our conscious minds, creating a catastrophizing logic that has somehow resulted in the avocado becoming an ironic symbol of generational debt. But also because dramaticism is fun.
When you’re entombed in a life full of expectations ground down so low they can’t not be met, it can be psychologically clarifying to lose your s**t over improperly stored peanut butter.
The same kind of clarification can be achieved via other things. Dildos, hallucinogenics, beating your children and heavy metal, to name a few. And heavy metal is something we’re currently in the position to offer you.
Lamb of God (sometimes abbreviated as LoG) is an American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1994 as Burn the Priest, the group consists of bassist John Campbell, vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, and drummer Art Cruz. They are considered a significant member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement and will be performing, for the first time, the entirety of their album Ashes of the Wake live, from their hometown Richmond, Virginia. The pre-show kicks off an hour earlier featuring a Q&A with the band.
You’re stuck in mental cycle of impotent fantasies that become less fantastical with each passing day. Soon they’ll mostly involve working up the courage to reduce the bran content in your cereal.
So take a deep breath and crank up the sounds of five old bearded men screaming so loudly and incoherently about black steel rod forests and intrinsic rot that for at least five days following the show, you’ll be wrist deep in the peanut butter jar, perfectly satisfied with a life of quiet drudgery.
