The groove metalheads Lamb of God shared their new song "Embers", recorded with Deftones' singer Chino Moreno. The track will be released on the album "VII: Sturm Und Drang" on July 24 via Nuclear Blast.
In a brand new interview with Germany's Rock Hard magazine, Lamb of God's frontman Randy Blythe commented on the song: "Initially there were two demo versions of the song. One in that typical thrashy LOG style and the one that ended up on the album. Mark (the guitarist Mark Morton — Noizr Zine) sent me both ideas and when I was checking them on my headphones I was sitting at the beach about to go surfing. The second version with its epic ending just blew me away. There was only one problem: I didn't know how to sing in this Part. Instead Chino came to my mind because the atmosphere of that part constantly reminded me of DEFTONES and PALMS. A few weeks later when we met up in Richmond to work on the album, Mark and our producer, Josh Wilbur sat together and looked at me saying: "What do you think, should we have sing Chino on this part?" Those guys are mind readers! I showed Chino the song and when DEFTONES worked on their album in L.A. he immediately came up with a fitting melody!"
In November, Lamb of God goes on a joint European mini-tour with Megadeth, supporting by Children Of Bodom and Sylosis.
