Lamb of God’s Mark Morton Talks GRAMMY Nom & Touring After Paris Attacks: Interview

FUSE TV - Lamb of God’s Mark Morton Talks GRAMMY Nom & Touring After Paris Attacks: Interview

Lamb of God scored their fifth GRAMMY nomination since 2007 earlier this week, as their single "512" earned a Best Metal Performance nod. The song—hands down one of the 20 best of 2015—was started by frontman Randy Blythe as he waited in a Czech prison cell to be tried for the death of a fan at a concert two years earlier. He was acquitted, and the tune became an emotional, devastatingly heavy centerpiece of the Virginia stalwarts’ VII: Sturm Und Drang.

Guitarist Mark Morton spoke with Fuse about getting GRAMMY recognition and how Lamb of God has sustained such a steady career for more than 15 years. He also discussed how he feels, following the terrorist attack that left 89 dead at an Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris, about hitting the road with Anthrax for a monthlong tour in January 2016. (Get the full list of dates here.)

FUSE: How do you guys react to a GRAMMY nomination?

MORTON: I can really only speak for myself. The thing about our band is, whether we’re talking about a GRAMMY nomination or a riff or a song or a business proposal, we all have such different visions and takes. That can be frustrating at times, it can make things hard to coordinate, but at the same time it keeps us all in check. So with regards to the GRAMMY nomination, you’d probably get five different answers from five different dudes, but for me, it’s exciting. In the context of what we do, and the context of the history of the band, we were just a punk-rock metal band in a basement with really no aspiration of being an international act or on a major label. At the time we got together in the late ‘90s, that was just sort of impossible, the idea that playing the kind of music we played, that we would reach those kind of environments. So to be recognized by the GRAMMYs, and now for the fifth time, is something I never imagined we would be able to achieve.
