One of the best LoG albums, ever. One of the best metal albums, ever. Maybe they'll finally get some of that Grammy hardware after all. \m/

Talented band. Too bad they have a douche bag singer who hates everything about the music that's made him wealthy.

Yeah, I don't know what bee got in Petey Parker's bonnet, but that's a patently untrue statement about Randy. If you follow his Instagram, you can see exactly and precisely how much he loves metal people, LoG fans, along with art, film, D.C. punk, and other RVA bands. I can't imagine why anyone would thing DRB "hates everything about the music that has made him wealthy". He doesn't live like Gene Simmons or even the rest of the band, FFS. When he upgraded his car, he got a Toyota 4x4. When they're out on tour in faraway places, he still squats with crust punks when he can. I don't know who you were thinkin' of, Spiderboy, but it wasn't Randy Blythe.
