This was my first time seeing the American heavy metal band, Lamb of god. This was their 3rd show since the one month incarceration in the Czech Republic of singer, Randy Blythe. The show took place at the world-famous Hollywood Palladium on the sunset strip in Hollywood, California.
The opening bands were Sylosis, Hatebreed, and In Flames. Sylosis put on a good show to get the crowd warmed up, once Hatebreed hit the stage the crowd started going wild with mosh pits. In Flames also put up a good show and people still weren’t slowing down with mosh pits. Once Lamb of God hit the stage, all hell broke loose. There were people crowd surfing and mosh pits everywhere. The whole band sounded great and had an impressive light display. They opened with the first track off of their newest album, Resolution, called Desolation followed by the next track, Ghost Walking. After that they played hits from other albums so they mixed it up well instead of songs from their newest album. We thought the show was over until they came out for an encore set which included: In Your Words, Laid To Rest, Redneck, and Black Label. During the final song, Black Label, the entire floor opened up to do a Wall of death which I’ve never witnessed before so it was definitely a sight to see. All 4 bands did a great job and I cannot wait for Lamb of God to come back again and kick our asses!
