LAMB OF GOD Frontman To Sing On Christmas Album

According to, LAMB OF GOD frontman Randall Blythe and folk-pop singer-songwriter Susan Greenbaum are planning a duet on Greenbaum's Christmas album. The two met while Greenbaum was recording the album at Sound of Music Studios at in Richmond, Virginia. She was working on her project downstairs and Blythe was doing preproduction work on the upcoming LAMB OF GOD album upstairs.

"I have a very nice baritone voice, so I said I wanted to sing a duet with her," says Blythe, who calls the project "just weird enough for me."

For Blythe and guitarist Mark Morton, who will also play on the track, the collaboration is a hoot. "It's going to be awesomely retarded, especially since I f—ing hate Christmas and she’s Jewish!" Blythe wrote on his MySpace Web page.

Greenbaum says her fans always request a Christmas album whenever she sings holiday songs. "Barry Manilow, Barbara Streisand, Neil Diamond — all the Jews are doing it, I figured I'd just be the next Jew to make a Christmas CD," Greenbaum says.

Both Greenbaum and Blythe seemed to have been impressed by the other. Blythe calls Greenbaum a "very sweet person," and she says she was surprised by how good Blythe's singing voice is, because it's not so much singing as screaming that he does on LAMB OF GOD albums.

The three haven't decided on the song yet. Greenbaum says it will be something traditional, but "stylistically I don't know what it will be."

Blythe says he doesn’t know or care what his fans will think. "It's a fun thing as a musician," he says.
