    The Christian owners were upset with the name Lamb of God? That's like a fat person hating the name Cupcakes Are Awesome.

    Open with Imperium we all know it’s the best opening track of all time then throw in Game Over as the encore. Also I hope you smash Metallica off the stage & take over

    Christian organisers had an issue with Lamb of God’s name, but allowed you to play Halo? 🤔😬

  • 13w ago eliasvw eliasvw

    Halo quote: 'this is abortion's knive aiming at the womb of the Christian conspiracy'. The venue owners didn't do a decent background check I guess...

  • 13w ago richardking3760 richardking3760

    awesome, I saw you come to the rescue in London 2006 "sick of the studio" tour. Two of my favourite bands under one roof.

    @doubled8420 as a resident fat person, I personally take offense to the name cupcakes are awesome because I feel that without the fact that cupcakes actually are incredibly awesome, I wouldn’t be as fat as I am. 😆🤘🏼

  • 13w ago danf7884 danf7884

    I was at the Wachovia center in philly in Jan ‘09 when MH opened for Metallica. No offense to Metallica but I thought MH stole the show. Definitely one of the best concerts that I’ve been to.

  • 13w ago metalthruurhead metalthruurhead

    @doubled8420 it was because it is a satirical name, which they switched to, because their original name was "Burn the priest" clubs wouldn't let them play as "Burn the Priest" so they became "Lamb of God".

  • 13w ago doubled8420 doubled8420

    @metalthruurhead it was a joke. I'm from the Richmond area. I know all about LoG and BTP. But thanks

    @doubled8420 no prob lmao, just making sure, some people probably actually think LoG is some sort of Christian Metal xD

  • 12w ago doubled8420 doubled8420

    @metalthruurhead some people haven't listened to Lamb of God.😂

  • 12w ago doubled8420 doubled8420

    @metalthruurhead I just saw #Gwar for the 35th time. I know a little bit about RVa metal.
