Fresh off of their west coast run with Metallica and upcoming visits to Finland, UK, Ireland, Australia, Japan, and Indonesia, Lamb of God have teamed up with No Fear Energy for the North American tour in support of their fifth studio album “Wrath,” which will be released by Epic Records February 24th. The tour commences in Phoenix, Arizona on April 2nd and covers 35 markets in the US and Canada, ending in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina May 15th.

“No Fear Energy is excited to be working with Lamb of God, Live Nation and the solid line-up of support bands for this upcoming tour,” said No Fear’s Vice President Of Marketing, Britt Galland. “The music on this Tour fits perfectly into the no-holds-barred lifestyle of those who buy No Fear Energy drinks and gravitate toward the action- sports properties associated with the No Fear brand image. We’re anticipating another popular metal tour, along with some unique product promotions and contests.”

Tickets and more information are available at livenation.com, ticketmaster.com and Nofear.com. Check local listings for additional information.

Lamb of God has put together one of the strongest bills to come out of the metal community in recent times. As I Lay Dying and Children of Bodom are the main support acts on the tour, with the opening slot rotating between God Forbid and Municipal Waste. Lamb of God drummer, Chris Adler, commented “I cannot wait to begin the first North American run of the ‘Wrath’ world tour. The package we have lined up is guaranteed to leave sore necks and broken eardrums across the country. If you are into metal, there is something here for everyone, this is not a tour to miss. We are working up one hell of a show and can't wait to play the new material. See you there!”

^it's not actually a remix. It's just called that in my playlist. Rap in it's heyday used mixes of rock songs and pop songs as backbeats for their rap, since they had no such thing as actual beat machines like they do today.

It's not really an insult, it's a tribute to the actual song.

Like the lil'jon song that uses the riff from Raining Blood as it's main beat. Or the one that uses the beat to Crazy train. It shows that the rap artist appreciates that particular band and what theyve contributed to the music scene. the same with this one that uses Eye of the Tiger. It's a compliment.

Now Playing: Deicide- Conquered by sodom

FAN- Lil John and Slayer? Damn homie it keeps getting worse. I don't know, if 50 Cents for instance starting sampling Megadeth songs I would not be impressed at all.
Now, if rappers did what Beastie Boys did in 1986, that is, have metal musicians come in and actaully record new music on an album, I can respect that.

Well, in all fairness. I'm not exactly a huge fan of any of these bands that much anymore (excluding God Forbid, they've always had some groovy licks), But I know I loved them at one point and If As I Lay Dying puts on a good show, then all's clear in my books. Double kick always gets a crowd going :P

Oh noo Bruno, if any rap artist these days started doing it, I lose instant respect; that b**** rihanna does it all the time. They have beat machines and home studios and professional DJ's now, so there's no excuse for that sh**. Back then though, in the 70's, 80's and 90's They HAD to use backbeats of other songs, so it was acceptable. Now though, it's just retarted for the most part if a rapper used a popular song for their song's beat (lookin at you Kanye West and your f***in ripoff of deftones)

On topic though, this pisses me off. here I am waiting for Lamb of God to announce tour dates for N.America, and not only do they put As I Lay Crying on the f***in bill, but they dont even bother coming to my state anyway. Goddamnit.

You can't really blame EVERY band for using a guitarists riff (unless your coldplay, then you CAN be blamed) Look at Lamb of God for instance.

Toxic Holocaust, Inferneaon and you get my drift. Enslaved was gonna play there this year if they didnt cancel their tour. Go to a search engine and type in Terry Harper it will tell you all those badass shows in your area. Man i wish Indy would get half the shiit louisville gets.
