Metal Injection cameras were at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennasylvania on February 16 to document the world premiere of the new LAMB OF GOD documentary, "As The Palaces Burn". The 10-minute clip below features exclusive interviews with the director of the film, Don Argott; LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler; fans; and footage of LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe's comments from the stage.
The Trocadero Theatre was where LAMB OF GOD's platinum DVD, "Killadelphia", was filmed, making the venue a natural choice for the movie premiere.
LAMB OF GOD entered into a worldwide distribution deal with Specticast (LED ZEPPELIN's "Celebration Day", Paul McCartney's "Rock Show") for their Don Argott-directed ("Last Days Here", "Art Of The Steal", "School Of Rock") feature film "As The Palaces Burn". Filming for the movie began in 2012 and concluded in March of 2013.
"As The Palaces Burn", which should not be confused with the making-of documentary packaged with the recent re-release of the 2003 LAMB OF GOD album of the same name, was conceived to be a documentary focused on the power of music and its impact on cultures around the world and its ability to bring together people of all nationalities regardless of religious or political differences. After a worldwide casting call, filming took place in Colombia, Venezuela, Israel, India, and the United States. As filming reached its conclusion, the documentary was forced to take a major turn when the band's lead singer, Randy Blythe, was arrested in the Czech Republic and charged with the murder of a fan in June 2012. Granted unique access to Blythe's saga, Argott's filming covered Blythe's 38-day imprisonment in Prague, his release and the band's return to live performances, and finally Blythe's trial for murder in Prague in February 2013.
