Virginian metal outfit Lamb of God have released a new trailer for their documentary feature film "As The Palaces Burn" (the title shares its name with the band's album of 2003). The original premise of the documentary was to showcase Lamb of God's forthcoming world tour. Shortly after the teaser of the documentary was released, front man Randy Blyth was locked away in a Czech jail in June 2012.
Following the arrest, the original synopsis of the documentary took a detour and the production had to include new content (Randy's arrest). The result is one thriller trailer even if we know the end result. The great thing about the trailer is that it never forgets Daniel who lost his life.
Blyth was facing charges and long-term jail sentence after a disastrous May 2010 incident in which a fan Daniel Nosek (19), who was at the Lamb of God Prague performance, sustained serious head injuries when he was pushed off the stage. He later succumbed to his injuries.
It was reported that Blyth might face up to 10 years in prison but the prosecutors asked the judge for the minimum sentence which was 5 years.
Finally, on June 5, High Court of Czech Republic maintained Blythe not guilty verdict. Don Argott, award-winning documentary filmmaker is the man behind "As The Palaces Burn." It is produced by 9.14 Pictures of "Art of the Steal," "Last Days Here," and "Rock School."
In an interview with Full Metal Jackie, bassist John Campbell talked about the most life-changing part of everything that they had to go through over the last year. "It definitely makes you wonder where exactly you're headed, what options you have in front of you," Campbell said.
He also talked about the Prague mishap, "The incident in Prague was a situation where things were not done the way they were supposed to and a tragedy occurred. There's a reason why things are supposed to happen a certain way and people are supposed to make sure they happen that way this point forward. Randy takes the stage to make sure everybody's there to have a good time and to watch out for everybody, I don't think it's changed anything at all."
"As The Palaces Burn" documentary will debut at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam between Nov. 20 and Dec. 1. Fans can expect the theatrical release in 2014.
