Lamb Of God stream 512

Lamb Of God have streamed their track 512 from upcoming album VII: Storm Und Drang.

The follow-up to 2012’s Resistance is released on July 24 via Nuclear Blast – and it’s heavily influenced by frontman Randy Blythe’s Czech prison experience, before he was acquitted of manslaughter over the 2010 death of fan Daniel Nosek.

Blythe recently told how 512, named after one of the cells he was kept in, was inspired by the gift of a scrubbing sponge to his cellmate. He said: “It was like he’d brought back a stereo system or something. It was so nice to have something to clean things with, because it was fucking filthy in there. This little sponge was so wonderful and we were so grateful to have it.”
