LAMB OF GOD Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of BURN THE PRIEST with Release of New Covers Album, Legion: XX, via Epic Records

 Featuring Covers of Classics by Cro-Mags, Bad Brains, Big Black, Ministry, Melvins, Quicksand and More

 

 

Today, RIAA-certified, Billboard chart-topping, five-time Grammy nominated Richmond, VA band LAMB OF GOD are pleased to release their highly-anticipated full-length covers album as BURN THE PRIEST, Legion: XX, via Epic Records. The album is a collection of songs reflecting the greatness of the classic punk, hardcore, crossover and noise artists that influenced them in their formative years, released in celebration of BURN THE PRIEST’s upcoming 20th anniversary.

A few weeks back, BURN THE PRIEST dropped their invigorated cover of Big Black’s “Kerosene”. Yesterday, they revealed a Zev Deans-directed music video for the track. Watch the incendiary new video now via http://burn-the-priest.com.

“Although Albini’s lyrics for “Kerosene” evoke small-town boredom, there is no geography more terrifying to me than the ever-spreading and soulless cookie-cutter sprawl of suburbia,” says vocalist Randy Blythe. “After I suggested a suburban location for the “Kerosene” video, director Zev Deans took it to the next level with visual nods to one of my favorite films, the classic punk flick “Suburbia.” I first saw this film in the 80’s at the midnight movies at the Naro Theater in Deans’ hometown of Norfolk, VA- yet another example of synergy at work. Enjoy!”

Check out BURN THE PRIEST’s two other previously released covers from Legion: XX – the Accused’s “Inherit The Earth” and Bad Brains’ “I Against I”. In addition to these tracks, Legion: XX features other songs originally performed by Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Quicksand, Ministry, Melvins, S.O.D., and Richmond punk band Sliang Laos. Produced with Josh Wilbur at the helm, Legion: XX exhibits BURN THE PRIEST in their true element.
