Terror is currently touring the world in support of latest release, "Keepers Of The Faith," hitting North America this month with Bane, Naysayer, and Rotting Out before heading over to Europe, then Ireland and the UK this fall-- but the group's impending stop in the Czech Republic has now been cancelled. In regards to this cancellation, Terrror comments:

"Terror is going to cancel their show in the Czech Republic this month. We feel obligated to stand up for Randy Blythe. This situation seems to be taken too lightly. Randy comes from punk and hardcore roots, just like Terror. He still supports underground music and has always supported Terror -- even singing on stage alongside us when we play Richmond. This hits really close to home for us having members of the band and our crew from the hometown of Lamb of God.

"We love our Czech fans very much and have amazing shows there, but we need to 'stick tight' to our friend Randy, which is why we have chosen to cancel the show. As a band that could easily be in this same position at any given show, we don't think we can play there and act like this is OK - it isn't.

"This is bigger than a hashtag or a clever t-shirt-- we as a community need to take action and speak up. Free Randy Blythe."

Not a big fan of Terror but the sentiment is understandable. Can't help but feel bad for the Czech fans though.

Hi,Nice of Terror to DO this. Crappy for the fans but..come on. I have heard in certain parts over the the LAWS are harsh this kinda shows it. Nice when bands do this kind of thing but..not so GOOD when its happening when BIG music festivals happening over there. You gotta be careful what you do to some countries or they may BAND you from coming there.

"Randy behaved exactly as I expected from him. f***er, who doesn't give a sh**. This has been confirmed whan he gave a few fans pretty hard time. He was very upset when someone decided to visit the podium. The first one got hit quite a lot from Randy, then he jumped on top him and held him down while he continued singing. When he was standing up, he choked him a little bit for him to remember. When the fan got up Randy grabed him by the hair and threw down quite quickly. Good thing for that gentleman was so drunk (his frinds said that he was actually sober) that he felt nothing.


"LAMB OF GOD have the almost perfect metal image - long hair and bearded faces make a strict impression and singer Randy proved a moment later, that it is not just a pose when he absolutely grimly took down a guy who already climbed several times on stage. Frontman made it clear where is his territory, the tresspasser felled to the ground, singer had given him a few right hooks and then threw him of the stage while he even didn't stop singing(!)."


"The only negative aspect of that concert was a mildly controversial approach from LAMB OF GOD towards the stagedivers. In the heat of passion, some of the fans began climbing on the stage ... and in that moment, "Lamb of God" turned into a angry ram, when the fan was very brutally swept back down. I admit that I have never seen such a thing . Yeah, I can understand that not every band is curious about cheeky fans getting on stage. But there was always an unwritten limits to which the band and almost all fans kept, except the most drunkest a$$holes. LAMB OF GODs attitude was quite unnecessarily exaggerated to me .
