Lamb Of God Release Cover Of Big Black’s “Kerosene” From Burn The Priest Album

Lamb of God always create a buzz, and their recently announced covers album under their original name, Burn the Priest, is turning up the volume for fans far and wide.

Legion XX will mark the twentieth anniversary of  Burn the Priest, and it features readings of punk, hardcore, and metal classics that influenced them in their formative years. Fans are getting a taste of the raucous compositions one at a time, first with a stream of The Accused’s “Inherit The Earth” and now with Big Black‘s “Kerosene.”

Frontman Randy Blythe writes:

Big Black is a very important band to me. When I was 12 and first listening to punk rock, I thought all punk came from England – but then through skating, I got into Black Flag and Bad Brains. I soon discovered this super-smart American punk rock – very caustic, and deeply sardonic about the murky side of the human experience. That got me into Steve Albini’s future bands Shellac and Rapeman – and all the noisy smart punk rock on labels like AmRep and Touch & Go. “Kerosene” was one of their biggest songs, if they even had one. It speaks to small-town boredom.

Listen to “Kerosene” below, and pre-order Legion XX here. It will be released May 18 on Epic Records.
