Lamb of God Gave Bonnaroo the Crushing Metal Set It Needed

“We came here to f-ck this place up!” bellowed Lamb of God lead singer Randy Blythe at Bonnaroo, before launching into yet another assault-on-the-senses metal beatdown. This was it: Festival attendees who had grown weary of the friendly smiles and welcoming high-fives from their concert comrades this weekend had finally found an explosive outlet at the metal outfit’s Saturday night pummeling. 

After a rain delay of roughly one hour, the group barreled onstage and immediately launched into their apocalyptic vision: massive chugging guitars, headache-inducing drums, and the nearly unintelligible vocals of Blythe. In other words, it was exactly what Bonnaroo needed.
