Randy Blythe Rants About A Certain Webzine And Other Things

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who has never been shy about expressing his opinion, posted on his Randonesia blogsite about some of the issues he has had with Blabbermouth commenters. Below is a couple paragraph snippet of what he has to say:
"Being a man who values balance in all things, I decided to take myself down a notch or two myself by visiting the comments section of Blabbermouth. I knew full well what to expect there, and even posted on twitter that I was off to troll land for a little light weight amusement before I actually checked the site. Blabbermouth never, ever, EVER fails to astound me when it comes to the sheer volume of mindless hatred and relentless bickering over utterly pointless topics in its comments section. Merely one of several reasons why I rarely visit the site.
But any new lamb of god release warrants a quick stroll through the murky and childishly scrawled waters of the comments section by ol’ D. Randall. I can’t help it. For me its like fiddling with a loose tooth or picking a scab. I know I shouldn’t do it, but it only stings a little, and let’s face it: it’s irresistible. After a few satisfying doses of “these guys suck, etc. etc.”, a few valid criticisms, and a few positive comments, I then posted on ye olden twitter that the key board commandos had yet again done their job to make me feel some modicum of job security. If at least a few of the try-hard metal experts really hated the tune and bashed away with their usual insults, then I could go to bed extra-pleased knowing that all was well, and this album cycle was going to be a success. Some people I know in the industry chimed in about the severe lack of respect for others (that extends at times to family members and even dead people), and I agreed, suggesting knuckles sandwiches might be an appropriate serving option for some of these cretins. Makes sense to me. I said goodnight, went to play Skyrim (fuck yeeeeeaaaaah nerdery), and promptly forgot the whole thing."
He discusses all sorts of things occupying space in his head, like the internet, and you can read the full blog article here.
