LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton recently spoke to MTV.com about the band's upcoming CD, "Sacrament", due in August via Epic Records.
"The music's influenced by what the five of us are listening to, what we're writing about, the context in which we're writing, our lives and our experiences," he explained. "We made a deliberate effort not to be so politically motivated this time. We still care about and think about those things, but at this point, creatively, we wanted to step out of that for a moment, and address some other things. So the lyrics are more introspective and more personal, and I think just about anybody will relate to them. Not everybody pays attention to the war or politics."
LAMB OF GOD began recording "Sacrament" on April 3 in New York with producer Machine (BLOODSIMPLE, WHITE ZOMBIE), who also helmed "Ashes of the Wake", and they're currently back in their hometown of Richmond, Virginia, finishing up vocals and guitars.
"The last record sounded so good, and we felt like we'd already made such a big improvement on that record, that we wanted to stick with him to see if we could get it even better the second time around," Morton told MTV.com. "The first time you do a record with someone, typically, you don't even know them, and over the course of the recording you build a relationship. To turn your back on someone and start that process over with someone new just didn't make sense. He was so invested in last record that we felt he had to be a part of this one, too."
