Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, like you, is thrilled for Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, who is probably still sleeping in bed in his Virginia home, after spending more than a month in a Prague prison.
Randy was officially back in Richmond around midnight last night.
Halford says that Blythe’s incarceration will likely result in a “colossal” new album.
“I don’t think anybody has the full story, only Randy does, and I’m sure he’ll be bombarded by press soon to talk about what exactly happened,” Halford told Loudwire.
“My heart was with him, just like everyone else. It’s very hard to be in a jail, especially in a foreign country. He was in there for over a month, right? It’s very difficult. I’m just happy he’s out now.”
Halford says he is looking forward to hearing “him channel this into the music. Man, that next Lamb of God record is going to be like a nuclear bomb, because he’s going to be venting. He needs to get this out of his system.”
When asked what advice he would give Blythe, Halford said, “Go home, see all your loved ones and your family, do all the hugging and kissing and crying, and then get on the fucking road and just explode.”
“Vent. Vent it all out. I know that as musicians that’s what we do. I have a feeling that the next Lamb of God album is going to be colossal from an emotional point of view.”
I can’t wait to see what kind of reception Randy gets at Knotfest. Holy shit, that’s going to be nuts.
