Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Finishes First Draft Of His “Dark Days” Book


Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has completed the first draft of his book “Dark Days: My Trials And Tribulations“. He said of the coming autobiography/memoir:

“This is what a completed 1st draft of a book manuscript looks like. I wrote this myself, mostly over the last eight months, and I finished it today at precisely 2:09 pm. Next to it is an abridged dictionary I got for a quarter at a thrift store, placed there for perspective (in real life, I use a massive 3,000 pound unabridged dictionary, of course). The single space typed manuscript stands thicker than the 600+ page dictionary- now it’s time to trim the fat.

I have to do a quick edit of the last three chapters and the epilogue over the next few days, then send them to my editors, then the ball is in their court for a while- it’s time to let them kill some of my darlings, to paraphrase a saying often erroneously attributed to Faulkner. There is still work to be done, but the worst is over. I did it. I saw it through. I fulfilled a lifelong dream of mine: I wrote a book, I can hold it in my hands, and I am damn proud of it. The work is good. And right about now, I must admit I am feeling pretty damn MAJESTIC. I can’t wait to do it again.”

Currently the book is listed for a February 03rd, 2015 release date through Da Capo Press.
