LAMB OF GOD’s Randy Blythe Talks Addiction, Depression in Latest YouRock Video

While many people know that LAMB OF GOD‘s Randy Blythe served a terrifying overseas jail sentence, many people don’t know about his battles with alcoholism and depression. In this YouRock interview, Blythe dives into his struggles, noting how suffering from depression doesn’t always come from detrimental circumstances: “I was in a great place but I felt like I was dying. That’s the component of alcoholism and depression that’s really baffling to some people,” says Blythe.

He also talks about how music helped him when he was younger, saying, “I was listening to the Sex Pistols, and Black Flag, and the Bad Brains. There’s this aggressive music, this stuff that’s speaking about real things…and I’m like, ‘I’m not crazy, I’m not alone in the world.'”

Other artists featured by The You Rock Foundation include Slipknot, Stone Sour, Korn, Killswitch Engage, Black Stone Cherry, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nothing More, and others.

BLACK FAST DEBUT SECOND NEW SINGLE

It is not a concept album, more like a treatise on fear, isolation, and madness. The manic ramblings of a conflicted narrator, dragged under by the stagnation of his own laments, in contempt of his contradictions, a grand unified vision of folly and disease.
