Video footage of the fan-created “wall of death” during SUICIDE SILENCE‘s performance at this year’s edition of the Tuska open-air metal festival, which was held June 29 – July 1 in Helsinki, Finland, can be seen below.
LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe, who was arrested last week in connection with the death of a fan at the band’s concert in the Czech Republic more than two years ago, is famous in metal circles for orchestrating the “wall of death” in which vast crowds split into two groups and then charge each other like a battle in the movie “Braveheart”.
SUICIDE SILENCE‘s new album, “The Black Crown”, sold around 14,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 28 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band’s previous CD, “No Time To Bleed”, opened with 14,000 units in July 2009 to land at No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart.
“The Black Crown” was released in North America on July 12, 2010 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded with heavyweight producer Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, EVERY TIME I DIE, HATEBREED) and features guest appearances by KORN singer Jonathan Davis and SUFFOCATION frontman Frank Mullen.
The cover artwork for “The Black Crown” was created by the Delaware-based freelance graphic designer and illustrator Ken “K3N” Adams, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD.
