Lamb of God is a band that requires no introduction; if you’ve never heard of them, we’d like to direct you to a little thing called “the internet,” and also “metal” and also “music.” The Richmond heavy metal institution’s most recent release, ‘VII: Sturm und Drang,’ came out last year on Epic/Nuclear Blast; it was publicly regarded as a “comeback” album of sorts. The record was obviously written while the band was under a lot of emotional stress, and Blythe has been open about his struggles during that time, but as we discovered, he wasn’t the only band member who was battling demons.
