Hatebreed front man, Jamey Jasta, recently launched “The Jasta Show” podcast, and it’s beyond badass! From his days hosting Headbangers Ball, we all knew he was a damn good interviewer, but these new chats have been outstanding! He is a legend speaking to other legends, but these guys are also friends, so we get a different approach and answer due to their trust of Jamey. His guest so far have included Eddie Hermida (Suicide Silence), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Derrick Green (Sepultura) and many others! You can listen to them all here! Episode 19 of the podcast was just released and it features an amazing chat with Randy Blythe from Lamb of God! The two icons discuss the Gwar B-Q, Dave Brockie, Jello Biafra, staying sober, prison, Randy’s love of literature, his upcoming book and much more! Read some excerpts here and listen to the entire podcast below as well!

Randy on sobriety and getting sober on tour: “I was writing about drinking in my book, I address it quite a bit. It stopped working the last night I got drunk. It worked when I got to a place where everything that bothered me was shutdown. I drink because I didn’t like many things about myself and many things about the world. I didn’t want to cope with that.”
Randy on Barricades, what he learned from the events in the Czech Republic, and if there was a life lesson: “No there was no fucking lesson just tragedy. A dead fucking kid. Though I caught a bullet. It was bound to happen to someone. The barricade at that show was non-existent. The security is non-existent. If I were to do it again I would have stopped the show.”
Randy on his book’s subject matter: “Basically in starts the second I am arrested and it will finish at the end of the trial. It will tell day by day exactly what prison was like. Though the events at that story is just the framework that carries the book along and lets me talk about whatever I want to talk about because I go back and forth in time a lot.”
