Lamb of God Rocks a Semi-Truck in New Video for Pulverizing Single, “Nevermore”; ‘Omens’ Out 10/7

Last week longtime heavy metal outfit lamb of god announced their comeback with news of a new album, omensas well as a North American tour for the fall.

Days after the initial reveal, the record’s first single, “Nevermore,” arrived alongside a new music video depicting the band as precious cargo, slamming through song in the back of a tractor-trailer while Strange things happen to the truck driver. Musically, the track mixes Lamb of God’s typical relentless heavy metal/thrash energy with a crunchy groove, tailor-made to hit the head:

A press release characterizes omens with the following:

Densely muscled, steeped in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic look at inner struggles and world affairs, Omens is a furious entry into the Lamb Of God catalog, perhaps their most angry album to date. “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world,” says vocalist D. Randall Blythe. “It’s a very edgy record.” He pauses to insist. “He’s extremely pissed off.”

Once released, omens will be Lamb of God’s ninth record to date, and first since 2020’s eponymous affair. Art Cruz, who stepped in on an interim basis before taking over full-time drum duties.

With omensLamb of God recorded the new material in the same room at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, formerly known as A&M Studios, a facility that in the past housed major recording sessions by The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Ramones and Soundgarden, among others.
