LAMB OF GOD's website has been updated to include the following press release:

Make no mistake about it, Grammy nominated Lamb Of God are the reigning supreme rulers of American Heavy Metal. Now, Lamb Of God announce Killadelphia DVD goes PLATINUM!!!

The band celebrate receiving the platinum award for Killadelphia DVD while they currently deliver their unruly brand of heavy metal as direct support to OZZY OSBOURNE on the mainstage at OZZFest.

“If you thought METALLICA’s Some Kind Of Monster was candid, wait until you get your metal-loving mitts on Killadelphia.” - Long Island Press.

Lamb Of God’s Killadelphia highlights every facet of the bands unforgiving live performance recorded from two unforgettable "Sold Out" concerts at Philadelphia’s legendary Trocadero. This blistering live documentation features lead singer Randy Blythe’s storming vocals, the buzzsaw guitar slaughter of both Willie Adler and Mark Morton along with the powerhouse rhythm section of Chris Adler (drums) with John Campbell (bass).

Killadelphia boasts live versions of: 'Laid To Rest', 'Hourglass', 'As The Palaces Burn', 'Now You’ve Got Something To Die For', '11th Hour', 'Terror & Hubris', 'Ruin', 'Omerta', 'Pariah', 'The Faded Line', 'Bloodletting', 'The Subtle Art Of Murder & Persuasion', 'Vigil', 'What I’ve Become', and the utterly classic 'Black Label'; which inspires crowds worldwide to part seas for the infamous ‘wall of death’.

Drummer, Chris Adler states “In today's age of gimmicks, lies and faux reality trying to make celebrities out of everyone with a few dollars, it was important for us to not stage or hype up a damn thing - to simply show LAMB OF GOD on the road; the good times, the bad times and one hell of a show- and for that stripped down, no-holds-barred approach to be received this well certainly flatters us, but also continues to make a dent in the industry full of fakes and talentless image. It's nice to know that we didn't have to be anything other than ourselves to achieve such success with this DVD, but the real praise should go to our friends and fans who picked up Killadelphia and in doing so have sent a message to the powers that be that we are sick of the over hyped, fake "real world" being shoved down our throats - we are all ready for the honest, genuine bands and music to take center stage once again.

As a band we are extremely humbled by this achievement - it's rare that a band like ourselves receives this honor. Again, we pass along the thanks and praise to those of you who picked up Killadelphia. This is an accomplishment that we share with all of you. Thank you, congratulations and cheers! See you all soon - Stay Metal 'till then!”
