Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe revealed his thoughts about Metallica. He also added how LOG acted when they were touring with them.
There is an old history between these two metal bands. Back in 2009, Lamb Of God joined to support Metallica with Volbeat on their upcoming North American tour. He is a singer and songwriter, best known as the frontman of the Lamb of God. He has also performed guest vocals for Cannibal Corpse, Overkill, Gojira, Eyehategod, Bad Brains, Soulfly, and Clutch, Suicide Silence, and is the lead vocalist of his side-project band Halo of Locusts.
During an interview on I Ask No One With Kevin Re, he asked Randy Blythe how the advice was from Metallica’s James Hetfield:
“James [Hetfield] is a cool dude. I got sober on a Metallica tour  – in Australia. And I’ll just say that James Hetfield helped me out a lot with that. Actually, four of five guys on Metallica’s crew were sober. Three of us actually got sober on that tour and have been sober to this day. And that was over 10 years ago. James is a good dude, man. The last time I saw James was in Oakland when we took C.O.C. out and James showed up and played a song with C.O.C. He hung out for a little bit. He had driven a Tesla – he had this super-fast fuckin’… He’s like a gearhead.
We were backstage at this place in Oakland, and I was, like, ‘Woah! That’s a fucking expensive-looking car. I wonder whose car that is.’ And then somebody went, ‘Oh, that’s James’.’ And I was like, ‘Duh.’ He’s a total gearhead. He’s a good guy, man – a really good guy with a really good heart. I love him to death.
All the guys in Metallica were nothing but absolutely lovely to us – absolutely lovely. People will be talking shit about their later music or whatever, and it’s like, ‘Did you write ‘Master of Puppets’? No, you did not. Shut the fuck up.’ Do you know what I mean? Or, ‘Did you write any classic records that will go down in rock ‘n’ roll history? No, you did not. They did. So shut the fuck up.’
How the feeling was about the opening act for Metallica:
“Metallica does not have to carry anyone out as openers. Their shows sell out before the openers are announced. They don’t have to do that. They carry bands out that they wanna give a shot to. And you’re definitely playing to a Metallica crowd when you are, so you’ve gotta keep that cognizant – these people are there to see Metallica, so you’d better bring your fucking A-game.
But they’re super fucking cool, and it’s not like when you’re backstage where it’s like, ‘Oh, Metallica is over there. Don’t look at them,’ or whatever. It’s, like, you see ’em, they’re just regular fucking human beings.”
