Game With Fame: Lamb of God!

You read that correctly;  LAMB OF GOD will be the featured guests on the next Game With Fame session.  Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little ‘Walk With Me in Hell’, eh?  And hey, it’s on a Saturday this time, so no excuses not to get up, shake off that hangover & then go up against Randy Blythe & Co. on some Call of Duty: World at War!

Ok, here’s the press release. . .

Play Call of Duty: World at War with Lamb of God

Once described as “pure American metal,” and reaching out to fans with six brutal albums including their upcoming Wrath, the band Lamb of God will play Call of Duty®: World at War with Xbox LIVE® Gold members February 14.

If you’re an Xbox LIVE Gold member (if not, upgrade now!), and you want a chance to play with Lamb of God, send a friend request to the Gamertag “LoG GWF” and be online half an hour before (10:30 A.M. ET) the Game with Fame session starts on Saturday, February 14,11:00 A.M. ET.

For more than a decade, Lamb of God has been burning up stages and arenas all over the world with their blistering hardcore metal sound. From their fan favorites New American Gospel and As the Palaces Burn, to their Grammy-nominated Sacrament, this is metal at its most pure and most honest. Now, with the upcoming release of their latest album Wrath, it’s back to the roots of what makes this band so great in the first place, their live energy.

Guitarist Willie Adler, drummer Chris Adler, bassist John Campbell, guitarist Mark Morton, and vocalist Randy Blythe worked together closely to make Wrath. “It was really collaborative on all levels,” says Morton, “and that’s what you’re hearing when you listen to the record. It’s got this energy, this pulse, this alive feel to it–and I think that comes from the fact that we were all pitching in. This one really is an organic record, meaning that it’s natural–they’re real songs, and every note you hear on it is played by a real person, and it’s all captured in a very old-fashioned way. Chris said something early on in the making of this record that really stuck with me–he said, ‘If we don’t do the kind of record we want to do now, when the hell are we ever going to do it?'”

It sounds like Lamb of God has done exactly the kind of record they wanted to do, and you’ll be able to hear the results February 24 when Wrath is released everywhere music is sold.

If you get a chance to play with Lamb of God, Xbox wants to hear about it! Send an e-mail to xlmail@microsoft.com with the subject: “GWF – Lamb of God.” Be sure to include your Gamertag and hometown.
