Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton has revealed that Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and his Dillinger Escape Plan counterpart Greg Puciato appear on upcoming album VII: Sturm Und Drang.
Morton tells The Rockpit: “There are guests on the album – Greg is on Torches and Chino is on Embers.
“Torches is an oddball song. That was one I brought in and I didn’t expect the guys to like it because of the way it was arranged. To my surprise, they took it.”
But Morton adds that Blythe’s experienced behind bars didn’t affect his own work ahead of recording. Asked about its level of influence he says: “None. The lyrics kind of references some of that situation. But music is music.”
