Lamb of God Debuts Video for the Crushing “Omens,” Title Track of New Album Out 10/7

If there’s one thing about Lamb of God that keeps the Virginia-based heavy metal outfit on its own plane of existence, it’s the band’s remarkable consistency.

The band’s ninth studio album, Omens, will be released on Oct. 7, and the two songs shared so far from the record find the group just as energetic, brutally heavy (and mosh-pit ready) and focused as ever, lead vocalist D. Randall Blythe leading the charge as always with his guttural howl.

Here’s the video:

“I think a lot of the messes human beings find ourselves in could be very easily prevented simply by paying attention to obvious repeating patterns, both in our personal lives and in a broader sociohistorical context,” said Blythe in a statement. “What some call ‘omens’ are really just manifestations of the fact that there is nothing new under the sun. It’s foolish to ignore this, but we all do it.”

The first song debuted to preview Omens, “Nevermore,” found the band — Blythe, guitarist Mark Morton, guitarist Willie Adler, bassist John Campell and drummer Art Cruz — playing in the back of a semitruck while some weird things happen to the driver:

Once released, Omens will be the ninth record from Lamb of God to date, and the first since 2020’s self-titled affair. That album was notable for being the first album from the band without longtime drummer Chris Adler — and marked the debut of Art Cruz, who stepped in on an interim basis before taking over full-time drum duties.

With Omens, Lamb 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 important recording sessions from the likes of The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Ramones, and Soundgarden, among others.
