Frontman Randy Blythe says Omens is an “extremely pissed-off” record

Lamb Of God have just announced the upcoming arrival of their ninth album, Omens. The record is due out October 7 via Epic Records.

Titled Omens, the new record is obvisouly far from a feel-good one. Speaking about the album tone, vocalist Randall Blythe wrote in a press release:

“The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world,” he says. “It’s a very pissed-off record. It is extremely pissed-off.”

The upcoming Lamb Of God album was produced by renowned Josh Wilbur. Wilbur’s list of previous collaborations includes Korn, Lamb Of God, Trivium, A Day To Remember, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Motionless In White and Megadeth, to name a few.

Speaking of Megadeth, a month ago, on April 1, Lamb of God released a cover of Megadeth’s track ‘Wake Up Dead’ (1986). The music video for the cover also features the members of Megadeth. The band frontman Dave Mustaine said: “We had a blast playing with LAMB OF GOD on their cover of ‘Wake Up Dead’. Almost as much fun as we’re going to have playing every night on ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’.”
