When Lamb of God decided to hit the road for the 2022 summer “The Omens Tour” they brought some strong supporting acts along with them. They received direct support from Killswitch Engage and for the Sterling Heights date they brought along Baroness and Suicide Silence as well. While Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage will be on the road together for 6 weeks, the supporting acts are changing periodically throughout that time. Future legs of the tour will also include various combinations with Motionless in White, Spiritbox, Animals as Leaders, and Fit for an Autopsy.

Founded in 2002 Suicide Silence looked like a very different than the version we know today. Today the only remaining founding member is Chris Garza, on rhythm guitar. The band has a dark past. Having lost their founding vocalist, Mitch Lucker, in late 2012 to a motorcycle accident, they took a break until late 2013 when they announced Eddie Hermida would step up as lead vocals. They have always had a fast-paced deathcore sound that has remained over the years. The set they played at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill was no debarment from the sound and stage presence expected at a deathcore show. They started the night with the 2007 song “Unanswered.” This opening song set the tone for the whole night. To say it started off right was an understatement.

Up next was the Savannah Georgia powerhouse heavy metal band known as Baroness. They took the stage by going right into “The Sweetest Curse.” The quartet moved just as harmoniously as the songs they played. Their stage presence during the whole performance included lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist John Baizley taking turns playing facing lead guitarists Gina Gleason and again with bassist Nick Jost. John, Gina, and Nick all played their instruments and contributed to vocals throughout the set. They were also joined on stage by drummer Sebastian Thomson. Their stage energy was infectious to everyone at the amphitheater. As expected, this intoxicating energy continued as they played their entire set.

When someone hears a Killswitch Engage song now it is hard to not know it is distinctly theirs. In the beginning their sound was distinctly different when the band formed lead guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz’s distinctive sounds were not part of the mix just yet; Adam started on Drums when the band first formed. In the twenty-three years that they have been playing music together Adam along with Jesse Leach, Joel Stroetzel, and Mike D’Antonio were all founding members, sometimes switching up what and how they play as a band. In 2002 Justin Foley joined the band and took over drums from Adam. For ten years of the band’s history from 2002 until 2012 Howard Jones was on Lead vocals, however he had to step away for medical reasons. This departure brought the band back to virtually the same lineup that had been together since 1999. Bands who have passed the twenty-year mark together have a certain seamless continuity on stage. Killswitch Engage is by far no exception. They moved and played with such grace it felt like the audience was watching a group of friends have a jam session in their friend’s basement. Starting off the night with “Strength of Mind” and flowing right into one of their top songs, “This is Absolution.” This raised the energy level of the whole crowd. This energy did not falter throughout the rest of the set. They closed out the Dio cover of “Holy Diver” and “The Signal Fire.” These two songs brought the vitality needed to prepare the crowd for the headliners, Lamb of God.

The band now and mostly commonly known as Lamb of God is a band that is adored my many. No matter if you have known the band since before they had a singer in the mid-ninety’s or if you just found them today, it is easy to see how so many fans they have worldwide. Singer Randy Blythe has had twenty-seven years to perfect his stage presence fronting Lamb of God and it shows every time he takes the stage. Randy was joined on stage by founding members, Mark Morton on guitar and John Campbell on bass, long time member Willie Adler on guitar, and newer additional Art Cruz on drums. This lineup is strong and always delivers a strong, fiery performance. The pyrotechnics at Lamb of God shows are always something welcomed. They opened the set with “Memento Mori”, took a small pause and brought the heat with “Walk with Me in Hell.” The set had a balanced mix of songs from their albums starting with the 2003 album As the Palaces Burn as well as songs from the newest 2022 album The Omens and ended the set with one of their top favorites, “Redneck.” As always, the heavy metal heroes known as Lamb of God brought the excitement needed to energize an entire amphitheater on a rainy Sunday night in Metro Detroit.

SUICIDE SILENCE Releases New Song and Video For “You Must Die”

SUICIDE SILENCE releases new track and music video for “You Must Die” today via Century Media Records. The track, which is off the band’s forthcoming release, Remember… You Must Die, is available on all digital platforms today. Check out the music video below.

“’You Must Die’ reminds us that time is merciless. Every second the clock ticks we grow closer to death and what happens after our short bout with time is a total mystery. ‘You Must Die’ was written as a reminder to remember death and to not let time be our master,” states SUICIDE SILENCE about “You Must Die”.

SUICIDE SILENCE’s forthcoming 7th studio album, Remember… You Must Die, was produced and mixed by Taylor Young (NAILS, Xibalba, Vitriol, etc.) and will be released the first quarter of 2023. For the artwork, the band enlisted renowned Necrosurrealist artist David Van Gough to visualize the concept.

Before the album release, SUICIDE SILENCE will hit the road with Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage for The Omens Fall 2022 U.S. tour. Then, this November SUICIDE SILENCE will join After The Burial for their Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2022” co-headline European tour. Tickets are available for the co-headline tour, HERE.

SUICIDE SILENCE have come full circle and returned to their original label home, Century Media Records. With nearly two decades of non-stop touring around the globe, hundreds of thousands of records sold and cementing themselves as a lynchpin band in modern extreme metal, the Riverside, California quintet has rejoined the label that released the highly acclaimed albums: The Cleansing (2007), No Time To Bleed (2009) and The Black Crown (2011).

SUICIDE SILENCE Releases New Song and Video For “Thinking In Tongues”

SUICIDE SILENCE releases new song “Thinking In Tongues” . The song is currently available on all digital platforms and the video clip, which was directed by Vicente Cordero for Industrialism Films.

“This song derives from the chaotic feeling of losing one’s mind”, says the band about “Thinking  In Tongues”. “Feeling like you’re choking on every breath you take until you eventually break. Debilitating confusion sets in and your mind begins ‘Thinking in Tongues’; essentially processing thoughts that not even you yourself can understand. In a sense, this song evokes the ultimate sense of helplessness.”

“Thinking In Tongues” is drummer Alex Lopez’s final studio performance, the band adds, “SUICIDE SILENCE and our long-time drummer, Alex Lopez, have mutually agreed to part ways. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward and encourage you all to follow his future endeavors in both music and visual arts. Our good friend, Ernie Iniguez (who recorded drums on ‘Become The Hunter’) will be drumming with us on the upcoming ‘Chaos & Carnage Tour’ and European festival run.”

On June 24th, SUICIDE SILENCE will drop the re-release of their classic debut album “The Cleansing (Ultimate Edition)”. Pre-order the re-release, which will include liner notes by the band and extensive bonus material, HERE.

The band is on their co-headlining run on the US “Chaos & Carnage Tour” with Carnifex, labelmates LORNA SHOREUpon a Burning Body, Angelmaker and Distant, beginning May 5th and running until June 4. Tickets are available to purchase, HERE.
