Storyline

Lamb of God, whose fanbase continues to grow on a daily basis, giving them the number two album in the country behind Taylor Swift, set out to make a movie about how their genre of music has gone global. Midway through filming, lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested and charged with manslaughter in the Czech republic. This caused the project, which was originally meant for fans, to drastically switch tracks, turning it into an edge-of-your-seat legal thriller. Written by movieweb.com

Really enjoyed the compassion the band had for each other
7 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

After having seen Lamb of God interviewed on The Metal Show I wanted to check out their movie. I was not a fan of their music and barely knew anything about them, but they were incredible guests. The movie chronicles their journey through a difficult situation of losing a fan at one of their shows and then being accused of the crime. The band members come off as just regular guys, but truly inspirational and stand up guys all the way! They are extremely well spoken and total class acts. My wife and I enjoyed them sharing the honesty of this emotional journey!

When you go to the movie stay for the segment after the credits roll. It was a shame that this story did not receive more press in the US. I had never heard about this story until the TMS interview.
