First time here.
So yeah...I'm totally stoked for seeing Lamb of God at the Canal Club in Richmond, VA on Nov. 27th. It's about damn time they came to Richmond again! I've seen Halo of Locusts (Randy's side-project band three times in Richmond, all at Alley Katz) live before, but not LoG in their home-town.
Let me tell you a bit about how I got into LoG...
I was watching "Uranium" on Fuse and I saw the music video for "11th Hour". I practically came in my pants. I was like, "Who are THESE guys!? This is f'ing awesome stuff." I haven't heard a voice like Randy's before and the crazy guitar riffs! Those guitar riffs! I got "As the Palaces Burn" as quickly as I could and just ate it up. I got to see, meet, get my copy of "As the Palaces Burn" signed by Lamb of God at Ozzfest in...*thinks*...2003? I forget. Anyways, I wore my shirt that said "Chicks Dig Scrawny Pale Guys". The guys laughed, especially Randy who chuckled, turned around to his girlfriend (I guess, wife now. congrats for him!) and yelled, "Hey honey! Look at this!" She saw my shirt and screamed, "Oh my God. That's SO true!" I agreed--for my boyfriend is 6 foot 2, barely 180 pounds and pale (I'm barely 5 foot 3, just f.y.i.). I go to school at VCU in Richmond, where Mark, Chris, and John went. I joked with them and said, "VCU 7-year program, right?" They smiled and laughed, knowing EXACTLY what I was talking about. After that Ozzfest, I decided to spend the money and get "Ashes of the Wake". I was worried that they would go into the sophomore slump. Boy, was I wrong! This CD kicks so much ass...even better than "As the Palaces Burn". Saw LoG again at the Patriot Center when they were touring with Slipknot. Awesome show, as usual.
So I'm looking forward to seeing LoG in a smaller venue. It's going to get bloody!
I'm going with my boyfriend. Aww...nothing says love like heavy metal! \m/
Anyone else going?
I will definitely post photos up from this show and *crosses fingers* hopefully will get "Ashes of the Wake" signed.
