LAMB OF GOD has revealed a new guitar playthrough video for “Memento Mori,” the second single from the band’s June 19 self-titled release on Epic Records.
“Memento Mori” was released as a single, accompanied by an eerie official video, on March 17. Executed from a narrative treatment written by vocalist D. Randall Blythe, the “Memento Mori” video features the band performing the unrelenting album opener from the new album. Lyrically and visually, the message of both the song and video are extremely topical, offering hope at a time of societal and personal upheaval. “Memento Mori” followed on the heels of “Checkmate,” the first new music from LAMB OF GOD in roughly five years.
The band’s most recent single, “New Colossal Hate,” was released last week. All three songs are set to appear on the band’s eighth studio album, which was produced by longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Korn, Megadeth, Trivium).
Lamb of God will be the band’s first record with drummer Art Cruz, who sat behind the kit with LAMB OF GOD in 2018 and became an official member the following year. The new album features guest appearances from Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and Chuck Billy (Testament). Blythe sounds more driven and insightful than ever on Lamb Of God, offering up the angriest and most comprehensive diatribes, addressing modern life in the current landscape, of his storied career thus far.
