RIAA-certified, Billboard chart-topping, five-time Grammy nominated Richmond, VA band LAMB OF GOD will release their highly-anticipated full-length covers album as BURN THE PRIEST»Legion: XX«, next Friday, May 18 via Nuclear Blast [Epic Records in the US] in celebration of BURN THE PRIEST‘s upcoming 20th anniversary. »Legion: XX« is a collection of songs reflecting the greatness of the classic punk, hardcore, crossover and noise artists that influenced them in their formative years, executed with the band‘s signature modern sound.

BURN THE PRIEST rocked the music world with the release of their brash, in-your-face »Legion: XX« covers of THE ACCUSED’s ‘Inherit The Earth’ and BIG BLACK’s ‘Kerosene’, and today fans can witness another blazing cover – this time of BAD BRAINS’ ‘I Against I’. Listen now via http://burn-the-priest.com.

“It’s been a super-big honor to recently sing with one of my favorite bands of all time,” says vocalist Randy Blythe“Playing with the BAD BRAINS was an unearthly experience – trying to replace the fastest-singing human ever on songs like ‘Banned in DC’ and ‘Pay to Cum.’ When it came time to choose our cover of ‘I Against I’, I was trying not to sound like H.R., as he’s so unique, but yet also throwing in enough of his style to show respect to his unique voice, through my interpretation. To cover the BAD BRAINS can’t be a straight-forward cover, we had to nail it, and we did.”

In addition to these tracks, »Legion: XX« features other songs originally performed by CRO-MAGSAGNOSTIC FRONTQUICKSANDMINISTRYMELVINS, S.O.D., and Richmond punk band SLIANG LAOS. Produced with Josh Wilbur at the helm, »Legion: XX« exhibits BURN THE PRIEST in their true element.

LAMB OF GOD may be one of the biggest bands in modern metal, but they will never forget where they came from. Mark Morton (guitar), John Campbell (bass), and Chris Adler (drums) formed the first incarnation of the band, BURN THE PRIEST, in the winter of 1994 after meeting four years earlier as students at Virginia Commonwealth University. Less than a year later, in the summer of 1995, they met vocalist Randy Blythe before adding Chris Adler’s brother, Willie Adler (guitar), prior to transitioning to LAMB OF GOD – and the rest is global metal history.

The tracks on »Legion: XX« are performed with the unmistakable precision that has kept LAMB OF GOD vital for two decades, but ultimately harks back to the raw, punk-driven sound first explored by four unsuspecting college students and a line cook-turned-vocalist in their beginnings as heavy music giants.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called powermetal.dk, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
