This happened two years ago during a fight with a fan at the Abadon club. Why, I ask, did the band return to the country? Tour in every other country and avoid that one, or you risk getting arrested.

The managers of lamb of god deserve to be castrated. Going back to a country where a fan died is begging for trouble. It surprises me that management and their label lacked the foresight and common sense to skip over this one. Oh man, hells going to break loose. If i were Randy I would totally blame management for this. If the story is true it could be self-defense but it depends. Was it justified? f***ing czches lured them and baited Randy. It just blows my mind that labels, publicity and management did not have enough sense to know this might be an issue.

Back in the olden days before dime was murdered half the fun of going to small metal, punk or hardcore shows was the chance to get up close, sing lyrics into the mike, stage dive and get crazy...not watch some dude on a stage a mile away in a stadium...it must suck to be a band now and have to worry if the guy coming towards you just wants to rock out or if he's going to kill you...I hope Randy has some good lawyers because European laws are way different from American ones...the management definitely screwed up here as well...

At a Korn concert a couple years back this kid was killed by the security guards on the family values tour! Then the venue tried to blame Korn for the kid being killed! f***in bullsh**!
Back to Randy he's a cool intelligent guy and he can get violent when he gets drunk but I highly doubt he will be found guilty. Hell they let Casey Anthony go and she killed her daughter

@Oz: How is there any such thing as a "typical non American"?

In America we view outsiders with suspicion and hostility. It's kind of our thing. We actually apply that same paranoia toward each other, dependent on race, creed, political affiliation and income level. Best of all, when called out on this behavior we only become more agitated. Corporate empires and public figures nurture these divisions like an over-attentive mother hen... lest the great unwashed wake from it's distractions, overlook it's petty differences and unite for real change and a greater good. National stability is maintained through individual instability and pack/herd mentality.

And how many countries have you visited that confirms that idea Branded? Spoiler: There's no joy to be had in bashing Americans. It's boring, doesn't accomplish anything and anyone who does it just because is as big a xenophobic idiot as the people they think they're criticising. Take it from someone who doesn't live in America, we don't really care. We've got our own problems to worry about, the least of which is "Have we discriminated against America enough today?" So if anything, the typical non-American is just apathetic and not obsessed with how some other country lives and what they think. Being labelled a xenophobe doesn't improve relations though.

RM?, I've seen some evidence of that, including within this comments section, but the vast majority of Americans I've spoken to have been really nice and level headed people, who're interested in other places. So, I'll wait a while before hating an entire population. National stability through individual instability seems to be the way most countries are run though.

How is "the 'typical non american' is a non american who has to bash americans for the joy of bashing americans" not a xenophobic comment? You tar the majority of people not from one country with the same brush. Countries being "marked for targets" are done so usually for their political or religious stances. Americans can and do travel all over the world, so to revise you're last sentence, "I won't go outside of America because I might get killed." Again, sounds xenophobic to me.

now im just gonna take a shot in the dark here, but unless the person who died was beaten relentlessly (which i doubt) he mustve had too much to drink or was on some sort of drugs which combined with some probable head trauma of 1) the altercation and 2) headbanging and or moshing that happens at all metal shows could have caused a number of brain injuries (or other injuries) and led to his death. either way this is unfortunate news. just my $0.02

Americans aren't the only people targetted is my point. If you're not going to even try to connect with foreigners because you're worried that your nationality makes you an object of scorn, what's the point of being on the internet, the meeting place of practically every nationality on the planet? Let's agree to disagree on this one though, since neither of us will change our opinions one way or the other. I just found the "typical non-American" comment to be xenophobic and hateful. I'm sure if I said, "typical American," you'd be angry with me, as you'd be well within your rights to.

Spiral Architect: What's funny about it? I don't like Lamb of God and I don't see having a song called "Redneck" means that Blythe being arrested for manslaughter is irrelevant.

Oz, I'm glad (and fully expected) that you don't hate Americans as a whole. I also wasn't suggesting that you should. We're an alright lot, but our history, present, recent-past and other factors make us (appear) a bit twitchy on the whole. I find that it would be easy, even understandable for people in other countries to dislike us. But as you said, there are indeed better things to do than belittle other countries... Still, there are some on our shores who like/or feel compelled to do just that. Our leadership and sometimes the more cavalier among us can be perceived as nationalistic, xenophobic, self-obsessed unworldly blowhards...

Coming back to the story, U.S/Czech relations have been strong for quite awhile now... I would imagine that this is tied to an actual event rather than some attention-seeking outburst or fabrication (North Korea is more known for that kind of behavior). Hope it gets resolved soon. As stated elsewhere, LOG's management f*@#ed up.

Personally, I don't think the whole episode has anything to do with Blythe being an American. Had it been a local metal guy, he'd probably been behind bars for 2 years by now.

Based on what I know, Blythe is actually in a pretty difficult situation.

What's actually most concerning in this matter is that the authorities in Eastern European countries are certainly not very warm to Metal or anyone related to Metal.
Years ago Rock'n'Roll, Metal along with Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and other terrifying things were considered as the attack of the "western world" towards their values in the Eastern European countries. And as we know, old ways of thinking die hard.

I hope it all goes away, but this IS concerning.
Remember the black metal guy who almost went to prison in Poland for tearing up the Bible onstage?

I don't want to generalize - I hate to - but there is a certain code of thinking in the former so called "eastern block" that has passed on from one generation to the next.

Concerning news.

Now I'm not an American and I don't hate people because they're American, nor do I 'bash americans for the joy of bashing americans' (Hell I even have some friends that are American). But people like you are the reason 'non-americans' 'bash americans for the joy of bashing americans'. It's not because you're proud to be american and support american laws, but because you are a f***ing xenophobic tool. The moment you start acting like you are better than some one because you're American and they are not, you start making every else hate you.

Now I'm a reasonable man, I understand that just because you are a xenophobic tool it doesn't mean all other Americans are. Unfortunately not all people are that reasonable, so congratulations on helping a portion of the world hate America even more.

When it comes to bashing the Americans or America, I've noticed is that people who do so usually hate everybody. It's not just Americans, it's everybody. And guess what? These are usually people who have never even been to the US and don't know a damn thing about America anyway, or much of anything else either it seems.

It's the same old story: "Yeah, we're the greatest here in Aholeland, Aholeans are the best. Never been to any country, I don't know a thing about them, but I Do know they're all crap, I hate them all anyway. Viva la Aholeland!"

So it goes.

Slade900, it occasionally happens here. As an example how did a recent Metallica event related news go into "selling out" and "money grabbing" is beyond me. Where's the connection?

If he truly did cause this fan's death then he should be locked away and suffer for his crime of killing an innocent person. Nobody has a right to harm another person unless attacked first. And I'm sorry but jumping onstage IS NOT a valid reason to hit someone. We did it all the time in the 80's and 90's at Death Metal and Thrash shows.

The horrible part is, if this had happened to Axel Rose, or Vince Neil, or Varg vikerness, a majority of this wall would be hatred towards the character and outcries for him to be locked up and that the motherf***er deserved it.

Granted, there are a few comments on here that imply the same ideas towards Blythe, but it seems to be a minority, even with people who openly dislike Lamb of God (Ozzie up there, always bein polite as f***^). But since Lamb of God fans are fairly plentiful and inherrently loyal as all hell, "Free Randy" is suddenly the motto, even if the charge is legitimate.

People forget, manslaghter is the charge where its your faul someone is dead, but it was unintentional, and usually through things that were caused by you, rather than a direct effect by you on them. He pushed a guy off stage, the guy hit his head, and died shortly thereafter, whether it be simply because of the head injury or a combination of booze and headbanging and medical conditions blah blah f***ity blah...he potentially had a hand in him dying, and that needs to be proved one way or the other.

This is coming from a HUGE Lamb of God fan (first concert with Machine Head and Gojira) and Ive been jammming to Resolution a f***load, despite hating Wrath, the album just before it. I just hate double standards. If this was Lars Ulrich he would have so many jokes of how "if he could play the drums half as well as he kills people he would single handedly revitalize the musical integrity of Metallica". But Randall blythe is the next Christ, soooo he didnt do sh**, it's the illuminati out to get him. :P

Why do people keep using the Dimebag incident as an excuse ?

Look at the facts:

Dimebag - shot to death. In America. By an American.
John Lennon - shot to death. In America. By an American.
Marvin Gaye - shot to death. In America. By an American.
Tupac - shot to death. In America. By an American.

Is there a pattern here ?

But apparently every other country is the one with the problem.

IF he is foun guilty and any appeals fail than he will get stuck in the same cells as rapists and murderers, as an American on foriegn and possibly very hostile soil. By hostile soil i mean the prison and not the actual country.

because the dime incident in my mind justafies him pushing the guy off the stage, and was actually the catalyst for many groups not wanting people to come up on stage anymore

Oz: "Seems silly to me to take pride in being born on a particular patch of dirt."

Especially when one considers that place of birth is total luck of the draw. As an American I am just so proud that we clawed our way to the top with a brutal system of slavery and ruthless genocide of the natives. Go team.

National pride is a tool used by political opinion leaders to shepard their nervous flock to the left or right and make everything "good and evil, right and wrong". Hitler owes his rise to power to unthinking nationalism.

And on that note... Happy Independence Day! :D

To be fair, there is absolutely no proof whatsoever Randy even had anything to do with the incident.
The video is on Youtube, so if anyone could direct me to the part where the kids' death is Randy's fault, be my guest.

A police spokesperson stated Blythe was charged with committing bodily harm resulting in death under the section 146(4) of the Czech Criminal Code. He faces 5 -10 years of imprisonment if found guilty.

In my opinion, he did what he is being accused of, and for that, he might end up in jail. i honestly hope he doesn't, but if he does, I don't think things will be AS BAD as most are expecting them to be. He is no "hardcore gangsta rapper" after all, he is a man.

Can you tell me that if a person was ruining at you you'd stand there? Second its a metal concert you know what you are getting yourself into when you go, if you are smart and last jumping on a stage multiple ruined, at a meatal concert, you think that they are going to hold your hand and walk you off stage?
