LAMB OF GOD announces 'Omens' album

07-06-2022

LAMB OF GOD will release a new album, “Omens”, on October 7 via Epic Records. The first single from the effort, “Nevermore”, will arrive on Friday, June 10.

Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, “Omens” is a furious entry in the LAMB OF GOD catalog, perhaps the band’s angriest album yet.

“The world is crazy and keeps changing. ‘Omens’ is a reaction to the state of the world,” explains vocalist D. Randall Blythe. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed off.”

“Omens” is also LAMB OF GOD’s most diverse affair. The band tracked with longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (KORNMEGADETH) live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORSPINK FLOYDRAMONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among others.

“The inner workings of the band have never been better,” explains guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in ‘Omens’. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”
 
The “Omens” album pre-order is live now at Lamb-Of-God.com, boasting several exclusive items, including a signed colored vinyl variant, shirt, hoodie, and signed CDs with an alternate color cover. All physical CD and vinyl releases will include a free access code to watch the livestream viewing of “The Making Of Omens” documentary, which will premiere the week of album release.
