Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe recently participated in an industry related discussion online, discussing everything from bands changing styles after signing, exorbitant ticket prices, and his own band. “I think the biggest misconception about my band is that we are rich; FILTHY RICH beyond your wildest dreams,” says Blythe. “It’s a commonly held belief […]

Lamb Of God Frontman Discusses Resolution Leak

Sumerian Records Founder Clarifies Recent Tweet


Because we wrote about his Twitter posts yesterday — basically calling out Matt Heafy of Trivium who recently posted an image of a paltry royalty check online — I figured we had to follow up on Ash Avildsen’s musings. The founder of Sumerian Records has clarified his recent point about Heafy’s attack on the floundering […]

Sumerian Records Founder Issues Retort To Trivium Frontman’s Royalty Check Grumbling


Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen either wants to sign Trivium or just likes to rub shit in people’s faces. Maybe he’s just trying to start a beef. I’m not sure which.
