This Is Hell Writing Material For New Album

Writing is underway for a new album from This Is Hell. The group hit their Twitter earlier today (August 13th) to share the following about their progress:

“Yes, we are writing a new album! No, we don’t know who’s releasing it yet. All I can tell you right now is that the songs are great. #nwoatm”

Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe: “There Is A Very Big Need For Security”

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has spoken with Revolver about his time in prison and his upcoming legal battle. An excerpt from that conversation can be found below, while the full interview can be read at the above-mentioned link.

Has your experience changed at all the way you’ll act onstage?

Randy Blythe: No. What else am I going to do? We don’t have a big production set up or anything. We don’t have purple dragons that fly out of the sky and breathe fire. We’re just a bunch of dudes who get up there and rock and roll. This incident that occurred, it was an unfortunate occurrence.

A tragedy. And there’s a lot of details that need to be clarified that came out of this, and hopefully they will in court. But it’s not going to change the way we do things, because I didn’t do anything wrong. So why should I change what I’m doing? They’re saying I committed a crime of intent, like I went out and hurt someone. That’s total bullshit. Why would I try and hurt fans of my band? That’s ridiculous. So no.

If anything good comes out of this, as far as a change to how we operate, I would hope it would be a more far-reaching thing than just my band. I would hope it would raise the awareness for the need for adequate security, not just for the band but for the audience as well. Most of the time, none of this stuff is an issue because security is entirely adequate. Security knows how to keep the kids from getting hurt while letting them have a good time.

To the outside world, to people who aren’t in our scene, it all looks like a great big violent mess. They don’t know that everybody’s just having a good time. There is a very big need for security, though, to ensure—especially if kids are going to be crowdsurfing and coming over the barricade and stuff—there’s got to be guys there to catch them. So if anything good comes out of this, I hope we will lessen any injuries incurred by concert-going folks.”
