Powerhouse groove metallers Lamb of God are set to release their new self-titled album on May 8th via Nuclear Blast, and in a video released today, guitarist Mark Morton discusses the band's new drummer Art Cruz and what it was like to write and record with him this time around.

Cruz replaced longtime drummer Chris Adler, who left Lamb of God last year after logging more than 25 years with the metal group.
"A true collaboration between all members of the band, Lamb of God’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what Lamb of God are known for, and unbelievably, upping the ante to new levels. The rhythm section of John Campbell, looming large as a rhythmic shadow, and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with Lamb of God here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat and expansive dynamics. Vocalist D. Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020."
You can pre-order Lamb Of God on a variety of formats today.
