LAMB OF GOD have released the official lyric video for their latest single, the title track of their upcoming album, “Omens“.
LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe says about the track: “I think a lot of the messes human beings find ourselves in could be very easily prevented simply by paying attention to obvious repeating patterns, both in our personal lives and in a broader sociohistorical context. What some call ‘omens’ are really just manifestations of the fact that there is nothing new under the sun. It’s foolish to ignore this, but we all do it.”
“Omens” will be released on October 7 via Epic Records.
Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, “Omens” is a furious entry in the LAMB OF GOD catalog, perhaps the band’s angriest album yet.
“The world is crazy and keeps changing. ‘Omens‘ is a reaction to the state of the world,” explains Blythe. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed off.”
“Omens” is also LAMB OF GOD‘s most diverse affair. The band tracked with longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (KORN, MEGADETH) live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORS, PINK FLOYD, RAMONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among others.
“The inner workings of the band have never been better,” explains guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in ‘Omens‘. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”
The “Omens” album pre-order is live now at Lamb-Of-God.com, boasting several exclusive items, including a signed colored vinyl variant, shirt, hoodie, and signed CDs with an alternate color cover. All physical CD and vinyl releases will include a free access code to watch the livestream viewing of “The Making Of Omens” documentary, which will premiere the week of album release.
