Lamb Of God formed in 1990 and have, amongst selling millions of albums worldwide, been Grammy nominated and toured internationally with the likes of Metallica, Slayer and Slipknot.

In June of this year the band made headlines when their lead singer, Randy Blythe, was arrested in the Czech Republic for manslaughter after a young fan died at a concert, falling from the stage, when the band played Prague in 2010. Blythe was later released on bailed and has since returned to the US, though maintains he would return to the country for any trial to clear his name.
