Yesterday, Lamb of God released their 9th studio album, Omens. The latest from the Grammy-nominated metal masters is available everywhere for purchase and streaming, as well as on CD, Vinyl and Cassette via Epic Records

In addition, today Lamb of God premieres the music video for "Ditch." Watch the video here.



"In February 2022, we entered Henson Studios in Los Angeles, CA to begin recording our 9th studio album, what would become Omens. We recorded this record the old-fashioned way... with five of us, in a room together, playing music. We filmed the entire process." - Lamb of God 

The documentary includes four full song performances recorded in the live room at Henson Studios: "Nevermore," "Omens," "Vanishing," and "Gomorrah." Watch The Making Of: Omens teaser here.


Omens follows 2020's self-titled No. 1 Hard Rock Album, saluted by the likes of Rolling Stone and NME. Omens is perhaps their angriest album yet. Produced by longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (Korn, Megadeth), Omens is a vicious new testament for the Richmond, Virginia-based band, a furious entry in their beloved catalog. "The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world," Blythe explains. "It's a very pissed-off record." He pauses for emphasis. "It is extremely pissed-off."

The New Wave Of American Heavy Metal architects tracked Omens at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from The Doors, The Ramones, and Soundgarden, among others. "The inner workings of the band have never been better," explains guitarist Mark Morton. "You can hear it in Omens. You can see it in our performances, and if you're around us for five minutes, you can feel it."
