RANDY BLYTHE Video Shoutouts From Members Of CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE FACELESS, PERIPHERY

Last Saturday (July 28) at The Summer Slaughter Tour at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas, Rusty Cooley and the Guitar Asylum TV crew filmed video shoutouts of support to LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe from members of CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE FACELESS, PERIPHERY, VEIL OF MAYA and EXHUMED. Check out the footage below.

Blythe was released from custody yesterday (Thursday, August 2) after spending more than a month at a Prague, Czech Republic prison on manslaughter charges. The singer boarded a direct flight to New York at approximately 1:00 p.m. CEST (Central European Summer Time) today and has since landed on U.S. soil.

Blythe was arrested at the Prague airport on June 27 and was accused of shoving a local fan off the stage during LAMB OF GOD's May 2010 concert in the city. The man, who is said to have stormed the stage three times during the show, reportedly suffered a brain hemorrhage that resulted in his death nearly a month later.

After the court doubled Blythe's bail last month from about $200,000 to about $400,000, the prosecutor once again filed a complaint against the singer's release.

A Prague court on Thursday (August 2) dismissed the request that Blythe be banned from leaving the country.

Blythe confirmed earlier today that he will return to the Czech Republic — if necessary — to face trial. "I'm an international touring artist," he said. "I have to clear my name. So, yes, I will come back [to Prague] if I'm called to court."
