Lamb Of God unleash Overlord promo

Lamb Of God have issued a promo for the track Overlord.

It’s taken from their album VII: Sturm Und Drang which will be released on July 24 via Nuclear Blast.

Frontman Randy Blythe says of the track: “I wrote the song about the dangers of self-obsession in our distressingly myopic and increasingly entitled ‘me-now/now-me’ culture. Just like the couple in the video, many people can’t seem to look past their own relatively small problems to see the bigger picture: the world is in serious trouble.

“Sometimes things just don’t work out the way we want them to – deal with it. People who only see their own problems eventually wind up alone because no one wants to hear their crap. We all know someone like that, always whining and complaining about some inconsequential setback as if it were the apocalypse. This song is for those people.”

VII: Sturm Und Drang features guest appearances from Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno and his Dillinger Escape Plan counterpart Greg Puciato.

They played a set at last month’s Download and are currently on the road across Europe – part of a wider world tour.
