LANDMINE MARATHON To Play Obscene Extreme Fests

Arizona grind masters LANDMINE MARATHON announced plans for a week-long West Coast tour en route to the Obscene Extreme Festival in Mexico alongside Napalm Death, Phobia, Dying Fetus and many more. The tour kicks off March 19 in Las Vegas and continues until the band reaches Mexico City on March 28. Full dates can be found on the TOUR DATES page. The band also announced that they will make their European live debut later this year at the European Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic.

Upcoming West Coast mini-tour marks first stretch of shows with new vocalist

LANDMINE MARATHON’s new vocalist Krysta Martinez commented,

“I couldn’t be more excited to be hitting the road for the first time with Landmine Marathon and playing these West Coast dates on our way to Mexico for Obscene Extreme America! Obscene Extreme America truly has one of the most crushing line-ups I’ve ever seen! I am so glad to be involved!”

The band also revealed that they are currently writing the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2011 release Gallows, which was awarded “Album of the Month” honors by Terrorizer, who praised its “killer riffs, righteous anger and a burning desire to fuck shit up.” Such praise earned LM a hand-picked spot on Metallica’s Orion Music & More Festival in 2012.

LANDMINE MARATHON recently re-recorded two songs (Bile Towers and Dead Horses) with Martinez; both available digitally.

 

LAMB OF GOD Manager Responds To Blythe Indictment

As news breaks of Randy Blythe’s indictment on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic, manager Larry Mazer responds with the following statement:

“After a three month investigation, the prosecutor in the Czech Republic has decided to move forward with an indictment of Randy Blythe on the charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm. Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show.  As he has stated previously, Randy intends to go to Prague to defend himself at trial.

While it is a tragedy that a Lamb of God fan died following a performance by the group, in no way do I feel that Randy did anything improper that led to the young man’s injuries and subsequent death.  The price of a ticket to a show does not entitle audience members access to a band’s stage.  In the years since the murder on stage of Dimebag Darrell Abbott, performers of all genres have had to become more guarded while performing in response to the dangers presented by fans trying to become part of the performance.  We believe that Randy responded professionally to the numerous amount of fans rushing the stage that day, a number of them captured on videos that have been posted on the internet. We have testimony from the venue operator that acknowledges lax security and an improper barricade being used that evening. Numerous testimonies from fans also were contradictory as to the actions of the multiple fans that tried to access the stage.

At this point, all that the band, myself, and our lawyers can do is to present a defense and try to convince the panel of judges who will hear the case that Randy is innocent of all charges and that his name and reputation need to be cleared and that he be permitted to carry on with his life and career always mindful that a fan passed away after a Lamb of God performance.
