Lamb Of God - As The Palaces Burn DVD (2014)
A new breed of modern American metal was erected in the 2000s, with Lamb
of God serving as an architect, designing the blueprint that would
become the standard by which bands that came after them would be judged.
So often, the European metal scene has set the tone and established the
creative high watermark of the global metal scene, providing the
template that their American brethren would follow. Then Lamb of God
came along and all bets were off.
It was Lamb of God who rewrote the rules, devised a new playbook and
raised the standard. The genre was forever and irrefutably changed by
what the band has done.
By the mid-00s, there was a full metal Renaissance, if you will, in
America, with the genre enjoying several years of renewed success and
critical respect. Lamb of God worked to establish themselves without
question as the scene's alpha males, dominating at every turn, leaving a
parade of other acts to merely feast on their leftovers and scraps.
Mind you, this was not a scene, style or era populated by middling acts.
The era was filled quality bands and still, it was Lamb of God who
defined the time period and that quickly ascended as the game changers
and torch bearers. No. Questions. Asked.
In February 2014, a documentary film featuring Lamb of God entitled "As
The Palaces Burn" was released world-wide. The documentary, directed by
Don Argott, began filming in 2012 and was set to focus on fans of the
band but drastically altered its scope following the arrest of lead
singer Randy Blythe on charges of committing intentional bodily harm
stemming from the death of a fan following a concert in Prague two years
earlier. The film has been met with positive reviews by critics. http://www.lamb-of-god.com/ Disponible sólo a los usuarios
