Being called the lovechild of Lamb of God and Whitechapel is definitely flattering and could cause any band to become over confident, however that doesn’t stop Perth based Bayview Suspect from forming their own unique identity in the genre. The bands distinctive form of groove metal is prevalent once again on their newest EP “Survival or Ruin”, which is due for release on September 14th. Not one to succumb to the dreaded “sophomore slump” following the release of 2016’s “To Whom It May Concern”, Bayview put out an EP that is both memorable as well as unique. Be sure to give the band a like on Facebook as well as preorder the EP via Bandcamp or the band’s official website!
“Now you’ve got something to die for”, roars Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe on 2004 breakout album Ashes Of The Wake. While previous albums New American Gospel and As The Palaces Burn sought to establish a link between classic metal bands (especially Pantera) and creating something new and exciting on their own. That is exactly why Lamb Of God are one of the biggest metal bands around, and creating a timeless sound is why they outlasted basically all of their peers.
Internationally-renowned heavy rock leaders LAMB OF GOD will support metal legends Slayer on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer‘s final world tour. The 26-date trek will begin on May 10 and visit several major cities – from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Additional support will come from fellow metal heavyweights Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26.
Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD says: “If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave LAMB OF GOD our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…”
