According to Gun Shy Assasssin, Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD have set “Resolution” as the title of their new album, due in early 2012 via Epic Records. The CD was once again helmed by producer Josh Wilbur, who worked on the band’s last effort, 2009’s “Wrath”.
One of the tracks that are set to appear on “Resolution” includes an appearance by an orchestra and a choir. “There’s opera singers, a whole symphony going on… It’s crazy,” drummer Chris Adler is quoted as saying about the song, which features the band’s vocalist, Randy Blythe, singing slowly over the opening. “We were trying to figure out how to not be black metal but do something totally different. I think we succeeded,” Adler said.
Blythe previously described “Resolution” as “WAAAAY better than ‘Wrath’ overall.”
During its 2012 world tour, LAMB OF GOD, in connection with Epic Records and 914 Films, will shoot a feature film documenting fans and their personal stories of how they use the band’s music to cope with their everyday lives.
