Not a fan of the band, but I'm happy to hear this news. Odds of him actually heading back? :P
 
2012-08-03 11:56:42 AM
Well, if this incident has taught any band/artist anything, it is to never perform in the Czech Republic. Someone randomly dies at your concert and you are somehow responsible? Bullshiat.

gittlebass: does that mean they'll make more crappy records?


I can understand if you're not a fan, but I disagree. While they may not deviate often from the style they've developed, the talent is there.

On that note, I feel sorry for the fan who died, but what a bunch of bullshiat. After what happened to Dimebag Darrel, I would have pushed the drunk/crazy/stoned fan off of the stage out of self defense too.

I hope it all gets thrown out. Blythe doesn't deserve the prison time and it would effectively kill his career. Metal may not be at the height of its glory these days, but we'd be losing another talented musician just the same.

Theres no way itll happen. Even if there is a time he did shove the fan off the stage that wasn't documented in the youtube videos, theres more than enough evidence that says the fan kept going on stage of his own will with the same violent results.

I imagine if he is found guilty it would cause a shiat storm. A semi well known american being sentenced to 10 years in a foreign prison under sketchy circumstances tends to cause a uproar.

I hope anyways.

This is fantastic news! And, I'm guessing LoG won't be touring the Eastern Bloc, well, forever! Once I got home, I'd say Fark it! and not go back. he wasn't at fault, the band just has the deepest pockets of those who interacted with the dead guy that night.
 
2012-08-03 04:20:55 PM
I remember on facebook, I'll my friends had their profile pix of him of while he was in court for his bail. Long hair guy, wearing glasses while wearing an Obituary hoodie in court was pretty damn metal. So for that reason I did a portrait of him. I was told I should post it on their site or facebook page or whatever, but I didn't really do his portrait for the reasons of setting him free. I did it, because it was a badass photo of him.

You can't be trolling if the trolling is true. Seen them twice, not the best band in the world.
 
2012-08-03 04:26:36 PM
wait. i thought i read back when this began that they detained him for that long and upped the bail amount specifically because he was a flight risk. and now they just let him leave the country, proving their point? seems to me they were right to ask for that much bail money. he's done exactly what they warned he would do. this just goes to show that the police are good at predicting the actions of the average criminal mind. besides, i'm sure they'll use that money to buy some justice for that poor dead metal fan.
 
2012-08-03 04:38:34 PM
Why not just never go back to the Czech republic? It'd be very difficult for them to get extradition given the publicity and nature of the case.

The main worry wasn't that he would flee but that he would not come back if they let him leave. Im guessing they assuaged those fears.

2012-08-03 05:05:52 PM
The guy that died had it coming. Given that this guy got onto the stage during a concert and got into this guy's face during the show, Randy was correct for pushing him off the stage. This should have been viewed as a failure of security and an act of self defense, nothing more.
 
2012-08-03 05:22:45 PM
Not trying to white knight for the band, I think they have gone way downhill since As the Palaces Burn and Ashes of the Wake, but just curious...those that don't like them what other metal bands do you like? I'm assuming that you like some sort of metal otherwise you wouldn't even know who Lamb of God is enough to like or dislike them. I'm not as plugged into the metal scene as I used to be and I haven't found out about any new metal bands for a while, I think the last new band I discovered was Carontte and they are awesome (nothing at all to do with LoG though).

I'm not a big fan (Ashes was ok), but the situation sucks.

Regarding other bands, here are some recent favorites of mine:
Be'lakor - In Parting
Intronaut - Any Port
Communic - At Dewy Prime
Gojira - All the Tears
Anubis Gate - Yiri

Hadn't heard of Carontte, checking them out now. Liking it so far - reminds me of Rosetta, Russian Circles, and Red Sparowes at first listen

Really? You didn't like Sacrament? I might catch hell for this (like I give a shiat), but I thought Blacken the Cursed Sun was one of their best songs to date. Excellent tune. I felt like Redneck was the weakest link on that cd, and even then it was a decent song.

Same here on blackened the cursed sun. Possibly one of their best next to omerta and reclaimation.

On that note, they havent really progressed much in their music. more of just refined their sound.The last 2 albums have a samey feel to them.

I know he couldn't just keep making "Where Dead Angels Lie", as that song is a work of genius. However, at least sound like yourself; especially after slagging "happy" music like In Flames around the time when SotLB came out, and then sounding like them on Reinkaos, especially after hyping it as the epitome of "Anti-Cosmic metal of death". I mean, Watain was able to recreate the classic Dissection sound better than Jon did.

As for LoG, it's aight. I'm not really into the groovecore stuff, but they're competent.

That is true. But I still love it musically and it's not very "happy" considering the lyrics. It's similar to Abbath and his work with I and the new Immortal. It's more accessible black metal mixed with arena rock. Not as good, but not bad.

/I farking love that Watain has picked up where Dissection left off. Two of my favorite bands.

Thanks. I have definitely heard Gojira and Intronaut but the others are new to me I will give it a go. And Rosetta is awesome too they have grown on me a lot. The first one I heard from them was Wake/Lift which I was/am still not that wild about but the other two are amazing. You have the version of Galilean Satellites where the two discs are combined right? That and Determinism of Morality crush my brain with awesomeness (in a good way). And it would be a little hard to find a great comparison for Carontte but yeah that is probably exactly how I would describe them.

Sacrament was ok but I love the two before that so much that I'm not sure they could have ever properly followed them up to my satisfaction. If I skip Redneck (just seems too simple and straightforward IMO, totally agree about it being the weakest link) Sacrament is still very good but I love the other two so much that I hardly listen to any of the others. Wrath is ok but I haven't given the new one much of a chance, I have yet to form a definite opinion of that one. For me personally they will never top 11th Hour or Another Nail for Your Coffin though.

Jesus Christ I see some real farking stupidity in this thread. Par for the course here at Fark.

The video evidence proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Randy never came into contact with the fan. Now, after Dime's murder, he would've been justified, but it was a security guard that pushed the fan, not Randy.

Over there, the prosecutor has the option to reject bail, for whatever reason they like. They set bail at $200k, Randy made bail, they rejected it. They called him a flight risk. They re-set bail at $400k, Randy made that bail too, and they rejected it. When they reject it, they have to go before a judge and explain the rejection. This time around, the judge was having none of it, and said $400k was enough. The conditions of his release DID NOT state he was required to stay in the country. He *IS*, however, required to return to attend trial, if there is one. (There won't be, this was extortion from the start) He didn't flee, he was free to leave.

The legal system over there has set a bad precedent. Terror already canceled a show they were supposed to play there, and I fully expect other bands to follow suit.

"Resolution" is a better album than their previous two. I don't care what you think- because I don't ask for your opinion before I listen to music.

Resolution was fantastic. Really the only album from their catalog i don't listen to regularly is Wrath. Honestly new american gospel, even though the general sound quality of the album is awful, has always been my favorite... then really it just kind of goes down the line as the previous release was better than the new one. But I still like all the albums, just some i like more than others,

thanks for clearing it up. that's all i was asking for. i had read about the initial rejection and their claim of him being a flight risk, but none of the articles I'd seen about his subsequent release contained any details about the conditions of his release. the articles i saw only mentioned that he was on his way back stateside. i was just pointing out that the reason given for the initial rejection was obviously BS, given the fact that he was clearly coming home. ...and as you mentioned, the judge came to the same conclusion. that's really all i was curious about.

the last few sentences of my original post were just intentional silliness--the bit about police predicting criminal minds and the Czech gov't buying justice for the dead metal dood...that was nothing more than lame, dumb shiat i wrote for my own amusement.

now go take a happy pill or something. never take anything written in a Fark thread seriously. jesus.

TFA says he's out on bail from manslaughter charges. If I was him, I'd avoid the CR completely.

Just out of curiosity, I looked up the extradition treaty between the US and the Czech Republic. It's was ratified in 1925, so I'm not entirely sure of it's still in effect, seeing as they have a completely different government now. To wit:

ARTICLE II

Persons shall be delivered up according to the provisions of the present Treaty, who shall have been charged with or convicted of any of the following crimes or offenses:

1. Murder, comprehending the crimes designated by the term parricide, assassination, man-slaughter when voluntary, poisoning or infanticide.


If it was manslaughter (man's laughter?), it was most definitely involuntary. Nothing to worry about.

I'm not as plugged into the metal scene as I used to be and I haven't found out about any new metal bands for a while, I think the last new band I discovered was Carontte and they are awesome (nothing at all to do with LoG though).

Really? You didn't like Sacrament? I might catch hell for this (like I give a shiat), but I thought Blacken the Cursed Sun was one of their best songs to date. Excellent tune. I felt like Redneck was the weakest link on that cd, and even then it was a decent song.

Sacrament was ok but I love the two before that so much that I'm not sure they could have ever properly followed them up to my satisfaction. If I skip Redneck (just seems too simple and straightforward IMO, totally agree about it being the weakest link) Sacrament is still very good but I love the other two so much that I hardly listen to any of the others. Wrath is ok but I haven't given the new one much of a chance, I have yet to form a definite opinion of that one. For me personally they will never top 11th Hour or Another Nail for Your Coffin though.


No arguments here.

/11th hour will always be a great song, never get tired of listening to it

Triple Oak: soopey: DOES THIS MEAN DETHKLOK TOUR GOES ON!?

/I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE METAL!

I'm still pissed they canceled the whole tour. Woulda been my third time seeing Dethklok in concert, and most definitely worth it again... hoping for a resale of tickets later this year...

/fingers crossed
//while somehow still throwing up the horns


I vaguely recall reading something somewhere after they announced the cancellation that they were hoping to reschedule the tour for sometime this fall if Randy isn't tied up in court (and judging by the way the Czechs have handled the situation thus far, that is entirely possible). I'm a huge LoG fan and I really hope they can do it. I was also looking forward to seeing Gojira for the first time as well.

Ebenator: blacksharpiemarker: gittlebass: does that mean they'll make more crappy records?

I can understand if you're not a fan, but I disagree. While they may not deviate often from the style they've developed, the talent is there.

On that note, I feel sorry for the fan who died, but what a bunch of bullshiat. After what happened to Dimebag Darrel, I would have pushed the drunk/crazy/stoned fan off of the stage out of self defense too.

I hope it all gets thrown out. Blythe doesn't deserve the prison time and it would effectively kill his career. Metal may not be at the height of its glory these days, but we'd be losing another talented musician just the same.

I disagree. What's more metal than murdering a fan?

Murdering your bandmate and burning down historic churches


That's ambient, not metal

rockrobster: Your Average Witty Fark User: Jesus Christ I see some real farking stupidity in this thread. Par for the course here at Fark.

The video evidence proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Randy never came into contact with the fan. Now, after Dime's murder, he would've been justified, but it was a security guard that pushed the fan, not Randy.

Over there, the prosecutor has the option to reject bail, for whatever reason they like. They set bail at $200k, Randy made bail, they rejected it. They called him a flight risk. They re-set bail at $400k, Randy made that bail too, and they rejected it. When they reject it, they have to go before a judge and explain the rejection. This time around, the judge was having none of it, and said $400k was enough. The conditions of his release DID NOT state he was required to stay in the country. He *IS*, however, required to return to attend trial, if there is one. (There won't be, this was extortion from the start) He didn't flee, he was free to leave.

The legal system over there has set a bad precedent. Terror already canceled a show they were supposed to play there, and I fully expect other bands to follow suit.

"Resolution" is a better album than their previous two. I don't care what you think- because I don't ask for your opinion before I listen to music.

/Facts, people
//get some, before you say something stupid

thanks for clearing it up. that's all i was asking for. i had read about the initial rejection and their claim of him being a flight risk, but none of the articles I'd seen about his subsequent release contained any details about the conditions of his release. the articles i saw only mentioned that he was on his way back stateside. i was just pointing out that the reason given for the initial rejection was obviously BS, given the fact that he was clearly coming home. ...and as you mentioned, the judge came to the same conclusion. that's really all i was curious about.

the last few sentences of my original post were just intentional silliness--the bit about police predicting criminal minds and the Czech gov't buying justice for the dead metal dood...that was nothing more than lame, dumb shiat i wrote for my own amusement.

now go take a happy pill or something. never take anything written in a Fark thread seriously. jesus.


He did not ask for that snarky "last word"..


Got it!
