In my opinion, there really isn’t anything more awesome than a badass metal band that isn’t afraid to speak up for animals—and Lamb of God is a perfect example of this! Bass player John Campbell once told us that if he could say anything to KFC CEO David Novak, he would tell him that he hoped his money made him comfortable in Hell, because if there is any justice, he would suffer. If that wasn’t awesome enough, Drummer Chris Adler has been a vegetarian for years, and he once starred in a “Vegetarian Testimonial” PSA for us. Check it out below!

John and Chris are living proof that you won’t lose any tough metal cred if you speak out for animals. That said, if you buy anything today other than delicious vegan food, I am highly suggesting that you go to your local music store and pick up Lamb of God’s new album, Wrath, which comes out today! The band is also going on tour in support of Wrath, so check out the tour dates on their MySpace page and see if they’re bringing “true American metal” to a city near you!

What show are you going to?


PS: If you like metal—check out our features with Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Converge, and most recently, Trivium!

    Many people are scared of metal-heads but they’re some of the nicest people around, especially as many of them are veggies!

    I love metal, it’s my fav type of music really (and rock, of course). Lamb Of God isn’t my fav band, but they’re music is actually pretty good, and I absolutely LOVE IT when music bands speak up for animals (for ex: silverstein, anti-flag, goldfinger and lamb of god) and I’m even more excited to find out members of bands are veggies or vegans!

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
