LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe has collaborated with members of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY on a song that will be released as part of a project called TEENAGE TIME KILLER (named after a song by the British anarcho-punk/deathrock band RUDIMENTARY PENI).
Commented Blythe: “[CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s] record ‘Animosity’ is a HUGE influence on me. In fact, the vocals on that record by [C.O.C. drummer Reed Mullin and bassist/vocalist Mike Dean] were the first screaming type music I tried to sing along to, EVER.
“Reed had a track he wanted me to write lyrics for and sing on, so I did (title is ‘Hung Out To Dry’). It’s old-school C.O.C.-style thrash punk and I killed it on the mic — SO FAST!
“It was a huge honor for me to work on this. It will eventually come out as a project called TEENAGE TIME KILLER (named after a RUDIMENTARY PENI song) with a bunch of cool vocalists.
“The instruments were recorded at Dave Grohl‘s studio (watch his documentary, ‘Sound City’ — track was recorded on THAT board). Grohl will add a couple of guitar tracks to the tune too. So good!”
Blythe was found not guilty of manslaughter on March 5 by a panel of Czech judges in the concert death of one of LAMB OF GOD‘s fans.
Blythe was facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a May 2010 incident in which a fan, Daniel Nosek, who attended a LAMB OF GOD performance in Prague, died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage.
