Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe: “Quarantine taking place the throughout world”
Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe talks about COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. He just also mentions “Quarantine taking place throughout the world”.
A few days ago Lamb of God’s vocalist Randy Blythe talks about the band’s new album. He also shares his opinion about how it is like working with Art Cruz and his approach to recording season. He also says: “I’m not really worried about taking Slayer’s place, because we never will take Slayer’s place. No one will ever take Slayer’s place.” Blythe recently spoke to the Bloody Disgusting platform, his quarantine life during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe answered:
Question: “Quarantine taking place throughout the world, how are you keeping yourself busy? Are there any words you want to offer regarding how to cope with these times?”
“As far as exercising my creative muscle, I’ve been shooting at night, well isolated when the streets are empty. Posting those photos to my Instagram with messages stressing the importance of social distancing. Where we are, luckily, it’s a lot more spread out than where the population density is so intense, like New York. I’m also exercising some, getting out, taking walks and so forth.
In general, for me, it’s a matter of realizing that this is not the zombie apocalypse; however cool that would be for a film, it’s just not. For someone who is not struggling with clinical depression or anxiety, it is not that big of a deal to sit on your couch for two weeks, a month, or whatever. I think about my grandma who grew up in the Depression and went to World War 2. I talk to her on the phone some and she has told me many tales. [During the Depression], people didn’t have enough food, and not because the grocery stores were running out and people were hoarding, people didn’t have enough food because there just wasn’t enough food period. During World War 2, there was rationing for everything. But during those times, people came together for the greater good, and I think that’s what we have to do more than anything else. We need to embrace this idea of postponing regular life for a bit and think about the greater good.”
However, Lamb of God band‘s new album will release a self-titled album on May 8th, 2020. Watch the Lamb of God’s ‘Memento Mori’ song below.
