Linkin Mark? Chester Bennington in studio with Lamb of God’s Mark Morton

Posted by on April 12, 2017

Hell, from the sound of the first two singles from their forthcoming album One More Light, they’re much more interested in becoming a pop band. “Heavy” isn’t very heavy, nor is “Battle Symphony,” but if the band’s doing what they want to do, […]

Randy Blythe on Mark Morton: family first

Posted by on January 8, 2014

Not that you’d want to, but you can’t keep Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe away from Instagram even if you did. In addition to spotlighting his excellent photography, Blythe essentially uses the social media service as his diary, essentially keeping a tour diary, or in last year’s case, a check-in throughout his trial and imprisonment.
