METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

July 28th, 2012

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



Despite its reputation for a tricky commute and arguably eyesore appearance (don’t confuse familiarity with satisfaction, fellow Londoners), the O2 Arena is a fantastic venue space for the Golden Gods and ample notice that metal is still as healthy as it ever was, showing no signs of bowing to austerity measures.

What would we do without this yearly event? 

Well, for a start we’d probably have healthier livers and better hearing in our later years, however many would also be deprived of their chance to postpone their Download hangovers or simply be given a reason to wash off this year’s festival mud and watch some of the scene’s glitterati forget about their day jobs for an evening.  Metal Hammer Magazine’s annual schmoozefest is upon us, and with it a dazzling array of leather, lip gloss & limp fringes.

Dethklok, Lamb of God, Gojira – Tour Cancelled

July 26th, 2012

ADULT SWIM STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:

In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the band’s upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks.

LAMB OF GOD STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:

Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled.  The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour.  Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour.  Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague.  Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.

LAMB OF GOD – Randy Blythe’s Bail Being Challenged

July 25th, 2012
LAMB OF GOD

LAMB OF GOD

The Gauntlet has learned from sources in the Czech Republic that the prosecutor has challenged LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe’s newly paid bail of $400,000 USD. Following the presentation of the court documents yesterday to the Prague Municipal Court accepting Blythe’s bail, the prosecutor issued a challenge today.

What happens now is that on Friday (July 27th), the prosecutor will submit to the Judge a reason for the bail denial. At that point, the judge has five days to rule, and another five days for it to be written or published to the court. The judges ruling at this point will be final and unless charges are formally filed, Randy will be free to leave the Czech Republic without condition on bail.

Randy Blythe has been detained in a Prague jail following the death of a fan over two years ago at a Lamb Of God concert. Randy Blythe is being held on manslaughter in relation to the fans death.

Updates to follow.

US Department Of State Says No Comment On Jailed LAMB OF GOD Singer

July 16th, 2012
LAMB OF GOD

LAMB OF GOD

WTVR.com’s Alix Bryan reports:

More than two weeks have passed since LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic on manslaughter charges.The case, involving a four-time Grammy nominated band, has become high profile for numerous reasons, especially as questions go unanswered and Blythe remains jailed despite putting up almost $200,000 US dollars in bail.

On Wednesday, on Facebook, the US Embassy released a very brief, non-committal statement regarding Blythe: “The US Embassy provides standard consular services to American citizens in need of assistance. We cannot discuss specific cases due to privacy concerns.”

Today CBS 6 reached out to several contacts; a Prague reporter who has been covering the case since the beginning, the US State Department, the manager for Lamb Of God, the Czech defense attorney, the US Embassy in the Czech Republic, and the US defense attorney that represents Lamb of God.

We had little luck with any Czech contacts—due to time zones and language barriers. We have left messages with both the Czech defense lawyer and the US defense attorney who will remain overseas until Saturday. No confirmation yet if that means Blythe could be released by then. Blythe’s wife is also in the Czech Republic with the attorney.

Noel Clay, spokesperson with the US Department of State, could not answer the specific question, “Were US authorities contacted by Czech police?” The question looms in the air as to how the band never knew that a fan had died and that the death was under investigation, with the band as suspects.

Czech police have said, at least to the Czech tabloid, Blesk.cz, that they contacted US police about 18 months after the 2010 incident at Prague’s Club Abaton. According to Jonathan Crane, with the Prague Post, police confirmed they started investigating the death in 2010.

Official Statement from LAMB OF GOD Regarding Randy Blythe

July 7th, 2012
LAMB OF GOD

LAMB OF GOD

First of all, thanks to everyone who has reached out in support of Randy and each of us in this terrible situation. It’s noted and very much appreciated.

We have been keeping our heads down and not speaking out due to the fluid nature of the situation and the constantly changing information that even we receive daily.

Within an hour things can do endless 180’s. It’s maddening to try and make heads or tails.

We’re taking the time to speak to you as it has been a significant period of time since this situation began and while nothing is immediately clear to any of us, we are not trying to keep anyone in the dark.

We have reached out and are making use of the resources we have acquired to help our brother who is still detained in Czech jail.

In the two years since, we were never notified of anything related to this incident.

Randy is our brother and we assure you, we are all staying very positive for him, working endlessly behind the scenes to provide any and all assistance possible.

The best we can do is to stay positive and continue to support our friend that we know is innocent.

We know that justice will prevail and we will continue to do our part to support our friend.

– LAMB OF GOD

LAMB OF GOD Frontman Reportedly Released From Czech Jail

June 30th, 2012
LAMB OF GOD

LAMB OF GOD

According to the Czech news site Blesk.cz, LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe appeared in court shortly before 10 a.m. today for a hearing in connection with the death of a fan more than two years ago.

Blythe, who was arrested Wednesday (June 27) at the Prague airport on manslaughter charges, was reportedly released on 4 million Czech Koruna bail (approximately $200,000 — an amount which, according to the site, Randy claimed was the equivalent of his annual income). Since most banks are closed this weekend, Blythe will be allowed to pay off his bail on Monday (July 2). The singer, who did not speak at his hearing and was “timid as a lamb,” was considered a flight risk by the judge. Photos and video footage of Blythe in court show him wearing an OBITUARY sweatshirt and American flag hat. For safety reasons, he also had his shoelaces removed while he was in the pre-trial detention cell.

LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton — who, along with the rest of the band, is in Prague, tweeted a few hours ago, “Today just turned into a FANTASTIC day!!!”

Blythe, 41, who was represented by two lawyers in court, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at LAMB OF GOD’s May 24, 2010 show in Prague. The singer apparently either pushed or struck a 19-year-old fan named Daniel who had come on stage, and that person died 14 days later of bleeding in the brain.

According to WTVR-TV, another Czech online news site, Aktualne.cz, has published statements from a witness — a friend of the victim — who said the fan wasn’t using drugs or alcohol and fell back directly on his head. The victim lapsed into a coma and died two weeks later.

LAMB OF GOD was scheduled to perform on Thursday at the Rock Café in Prague with SKELETONWITCH and ALL SHALL PERISH but that show ended up getting canceled.

LAMB OF GOD’s publicist, Adrenaline PR, issued a statement yesterday stressing that “under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved [during LAMB OF GOD's 2010 concert]. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head.”

LAMB OF GOD: Randy Blythe Update

June 29th, 2012

LAMB OF GOD management will be issuing an official statement on Monday regarding the charges made against singer Randy Blythe. As no formal charges have yet been made and the case is only in the investigation stages, it would be premature to make an official statement filled with false truths or innuendos.

 

Having said that, management wished to address today one false piece of information that has been included in many of the news stories released so far. Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head.

 

Again, until the investigation is concluded this weekend, nothing more will be released, but clarity and the facts needed to be addressed on this one reported point which is totally inaccurate.

Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Arrested in Prague for Manslaughter

June 29th, 2012

Note: The band will not be preforming at Tuska Open Air. A possible replacement and changed schedule will be released later on the Tuska facebook and official site: https://www.facebook.com/TuskaOpenAir

Lamb of God's Randy Blythe Arrested in Prague for Manslaughter

By Josiah HughesToday (June 28), some shocking news has broke concerning Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who has been arrested in Prague on manslaughter charges.

Reports are hazy at this point, but Metal Sucks points to a Czech news report from Novinky.cz, who explain that Blythe was arrested over an incident that took place at a Lamb of God show in Prague on May 24, 2010.

In the alleged 2010 incident, a fan reportedly climbed up on stage and ended up getting in a physical altercation with Blythe. Later, the concertgoer in question succumbed to his or her injuries, according to the news report.

The recent Exclaim! cover stars were to headline a show tonight in Prague at the Rock Cafe with Skeletonwitch and All Shall Perish. However, Lamb of God have pulled out of the concert.

Metal Insider got in touch with Adrenaline PR, the company that manages Lamb of God, and were told that Blythe was “wrongfully accused,” adding that “lawyers are dealing with it, and we expect him to be fully exonerated.”

LAMB OF GOD‘s publicist, Adrenaline PR, issued a statement earlier today stressing that “under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved [during LAMB OF GOD's 2010 concert]. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head.”

A Czech LAMB OF GOD fan who says that he attended the band’s 2010 concert in Prague, described the incident on Facebook as follows: “I’ve seen many bands in that club like DEVILDRIVER, HATEBREED, etc. and every metal fan in Prague knows that this is one of the ‘stage-diving-friendly’ clubs. HATEBREED and DEVILDRIVER were OK with that. The guy climbed on stage and Randy slapped him and the guy fell on the ground (NOT off the stage), [Randy] sang few words to his face and pushed him back and said that he is not OK with people on the stage. A murder? I dont think so…that hit wouldn’t kill you unless you’re made of glass.”

Randy‘s brother, Mark Blythe, told CBS-6 that he’s awaiting further details and said the charge is “bogus and outrageous and will be dropped immediately.”

Commented Willie: “It’s been a rough couple of days. All I can say is that I can’t recall that particular show let alone a fan being beaten on the stage. I think I would’ve noticed something like that considering the Dime [the 2004 murder of PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott] thing.”

He added, “We’re all still here in the Czech Republic awaiting what is to happen. We hope we’ll be able to get Randy out this afternoon. All our thoughts are with him as well as the family of the deceased fan. We’ve no real clue as to what happened to him, but we send our condolences. All we try to do is entertain; the fans are why we’re here. We would never try and harm anyone.”

 This summer, two of the biggest names in metal, LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK, will join forces for a 34-show North American tour kicking off on August 1 in Seattle, Wash. The three-time Grammy® Award-nominated band from Richmond, VA and the world’s most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse animated series will shred their way through cities throughout in the U.S. and Canada ending September 15 in San Francisco, CA.

The upcoming DETHKLOK and LAMB OF GOD with GOJIRA summer tour marks the return of LAMB OF GOD to North American stages where they will support their latest album Resolution, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart when it was released earlier this year.

Lamb of God’s Chris Adler and Mapex Drums Draw an Impressive 730 Fans to Tour Kickoff in Salt Lake City, Utah

March 2nd, 2011

LAMB OF GOD’s CHRIS ADLER and MAPEX Drums were thrilled to see a whopping 730 fans arrive at the “A Throne with a View” tour’s impressive Salt Lake City, UT kick-off show at BackBeats Drum Shop on Monday the 28th. A typical drum clinic will draw about 50-70 attendees. This impressive turnout is only a taste of what is yet to come on the “A Throne with a View” tour, and ADLER hopes to see many more fans out at his upcoming appearances. The tour will take ADLER through the country until March 16th when the tour lands in Hollywood, FL at Resurrection Drums. The tour is sponsored by MAPEX DRUMS, AQUARIAN, PRO MARK, GIBRALTAR, MEINL, and ZOOM (SAMSON).

 

“Never would I have expected such a massive and warm response,” states ADLER. “I had a blast jamming tunes and talking shop and SLC really brought it. Honestly, I was shocked and a bit of a nervous wreck without my bandmates, but in the end I loved every minute of it. I’m lucky to have the opportunity and I hope to share that, and if all goes well, inspire everyone that stops by.”

 

“The performance CHRIS ADLER brings to his drum clinic is at the same level as his performance with the band live and in the studio,” states Joe Hibbs of MAPEX Drums. “Because he is truly a musical and drumming artist, fans know it is important to see him in these truly special clinic appearances.”

 

“The “A Throne with a View” tour with CHRIS ADLER was a huge success,” adds Sean Chase of BackBeats Drum Shop in Salt Lake City, UT. “A sell-out crowd of over 700 attendees witnessed an inspiring performance and insight from one the world’s greatest drummers. Chris’ humility, honesty, and passion for our craft gives us all something to aspire to.”

 

“GIBRALTAR is proud to support CHRIS ADLER,” affirms GIBRALTAR Hardware Artist Relations manager Kim Graham. “He has been an artist of ours for eight years and is an amazing person and drummer to have on our team.  It’s no surprise that this clinic tour is such a success!”

 

On this tour, ADLER is playing on MAPEX’s newly released Black Panther “Blaster” drum set. MAPEX introduced the Black Panther Drum Collection in January at the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA and this will be the first opportunity for many fans to see and hear it. The Blaster kit features a unique maple and walnut shell design and is the first in a series of new drum sets based on MAPEX’s popular series of Black Panther Snare Drums.

ADLER appeared at the prestigious Modern Drummer Festival in 2005 and performed a “Battle” clinic tour with his brother Willie Adler across Europe in 2008. “A Throne with a View” is his first and only U.S. clinic tour in 2011. See below for all current clinic tour dates, and watch an example of one of ADLER’s aforementioned drum clinics here.

New Website www.Chris-Adler.com is Live Now!

LAMB OF GOD’s CHRIS ADLER is pleased to announce his upcoming Mapex Drum tour, “A Throne with a View” which will take him through the country this winter, beginning February 28th and ending on March 16th, 2011. ADLER appeared at the prestigious Modern Drummer Festival in 2005 and performed a “Battle” clinic tour with his brother Willie Adler across Europe in 2008. “A Throne with a View” will be his first and only U.S. clinic tour in 2011.

ADLER’s limited appearances are different from many drum clinics. “My goal is to share my experiences on and off my drum kit through interaction with those in attendance. Of course, I will be playing and giving tips, but I will be far more focused on the story that got me where I am than the notion of impressing anyone,” comments ADLER. He adds, “I’ve found that most fans and young players want to know how I got to where I am, not the tech specs.”

See below for all current clinic tour dates, and watch an example of one of ADLER’s aforementioned drum clinics here. The tour is sponsored by MAPEX DRUMS, AQUARIAN, PRO MARK, GIBRALTAR, MEINL, and ZOOM (SAMSON).

This is the first and only book chronicling the history of the making of this classic album. Known for not pulling any punches, ADLER tells the real story, warts and all.

Over 100 oversized pages personally written by CHRIS ADLER, the book also includes drum tablature, transcribed and verified by ADLER himself. Along with refreshingly accurate drum tabs per song, ADLER precedes each song on the album with pages of written detail on how and why New American Gospel came to be, and his view of how it worked, or didn’t, in the band’s live set. As many players know, many tablature books contain incorrect information due to publishers not verifying with the artists. By self-publishing, writing and transcribing, ADLER has made sure that the common mistakes do not exist. The tablatures are all transcribed and verified by master technician Travis Orbin (www.travis-orbin.com) and ADLER himself, and are designed to provide accurate insight into the drumming on the album as well as a convenient learning and teaching tool to teachers and drummers alike. The production of the book is completely self-financed, written (no ghost writers), and published by ADLER to have total product quality control.

The book is a must-have for any fans of LAMB OF GOD or ADLER’s drumming, as well as fans looking for ‘fly-on-the-wall’ access to how and why critical choices and decisions were made in the process of creating New American Gospel. Throughout the narrative, ADLER speaks frankly of his drumming, the successes, the failures, and obstacles that ultimately led to him contemplating leaving the band years ago. To purchase the book, head to this link, or www.chris-adler.com.

Fans should be sure to head to CHRIS ADLER’s brand new website, www.chris-adler.com, to catch up on first-hand information, endorsements, and appearances. The site also includes a small store of exclusive items used by ADLER and special giveaways throughout the year.
