LAMB OF GOD
Lamb of God is currently on a rescheduled tour, which was postponed after vocalist Randy Blythe was jailed in Prague in July on manslaughter charges. The arrest stemmed from the death of a fan who landed on his head after Blythe allegedly pushed him off the stage at a previous gig there. Now, Blythe is out on bail and the band is back on the road. The screamer insists he will return to Prague for any court hearings for the case. Meanwhile, the quintet's double-barrel metal is a cauldron of extreme metal genres, where the groove and bombast both converge to make the band one of the most intriguing on the circuit. The new recording, Resolution, is complete in its quest to destroy ear drums and goad testosterone-loaded pummeling in the pit. Also on the bill: In Flames, Hellyeah and Sylosis. $45. Nov. 21, 7 p.m. The Fillmore, 1000 N.C. Music Factory Blvd. 704-549-5555.
