Lamb of God — “Overlord”

New song from the forthcoming album VII: Sturm und Drang (which means storm and stress, apparently.)

It’s really different from anything they’ve done before. Randy is singing clean vocals for the first time, and Willy has cut his hair.

But do you know what? Unsurprisingly, I really like it. It has a kind of Slipknot/Stone Sour vibe to it. I know there will be those who say that they’ve sold out and gone soft, but I’m glad Lamb of God are mixing things up a little, it makes things interesting.

The new album will be released on Friday 24 July.
