What could possibly be better than Jared Leto dressing up as Kurt Cobain and singing his songs? Miley Cyrus covering Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ on her new world tour, perhaps? Yeah…
When Michael Jackson kicked the bucket and moonwalked off to the big Neverland Ranch in the sky, there was much wringing of hands and furrowing of brows at the O2 Arena as to what to do with the bazillion or so open dates now Jacko’s shows were were cancelled. Well, we heard a very interesting rumour today that a fair old chunk of them are about to be claimed by Bon Jovi.
Then they played some Foo Fighters on Guitar Hero with Simon on the drums and James on guitar. Watch it all happen. In a video.

Lamb Of God
Walk With Me In Hell
by Salvadore Fernandez
Lamb Of God have some pedigree when it comes to making live/tour DVDs. 2005’s wittily-titled Killadelphia achieved platinum status in the US and featured some amazing footage including the notorious drunken street fight between singer Randy Blythe and guitarist Mark Morton.
What goes on tour…
Walk With Me In Hell holds two whole discs containing over five hours of their self-styled Pure American Metal and it’s just as much of a treat as their last offering.
While the first disc holds the feature documentary that includes tonnes of in-depth material from their Sacrament world tour, disc two has their complete, uncut performance from Download Festival 2007 plus the uncensored version of the video to ‘Redneck’.

Highlights include the band going to the zoo in Australia, which includes some extreme close-ups of various unwitting animals, and a promo day that hilariously showcases the band’s professional (bored) side.
Imagine if the band returned to the exact same bus that the aforementioned brawl began on. It would be interesting, right? It happened. Oh, it happened and it was actually quite sad to see the band’s morale drop so low, so fast but that’s what this DVD is all about.

The beauty of Lamb Of God’s documentation is that they refuse to censor a single thing. They depict themselves in a warts ‘n’ all manner. Obsessive fans might want to know everything. With Walk With Me In Hell on your shelf, they won’t have to stalk the band at least.
If you watch this DVD, you will understand everything about this band. You will come to love every regular nuance and relationship idiosyncrasy within the band and that’s exactly how they want it.
Walk With Me In Hell by Lamb Of God is out now on Roadrunner Records
