Randy Blythe: "I'm not angry w/ the Czechs at all"

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 5:04 AM PT


Two days into his trial on manslaughter charges, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe issued an open letter to fans via Instagram:

"I have read a few news reports of the progress of my case, and trust me, many things are incorrect. But this is the Internet, and, of course, things are half-baked anyway. Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language. So wait and see, as I am. It is all I can do, except be honest and fight for my freedom in my own way. I also have heard of some people (not on here) talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying, 'Fuck the Czech Republic,' etc. This is not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over. I am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead; what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them?

"Here, look at this picture; a mother watches her baby. The child reaches out for something new, laughing and chasing a pretty picture in the air. It is the same here as everywhere else. Do you see?!?!? Life is beautiful."

its easy for you not to be angry, randy, you already had a chance to take out your Czechy anger on a young fan. We can't all have the pleasure of murdering a lil czech boy.

He's not mad until the trial is over and if the case is dismissed they release the new Lamb Of God Record "Burn Czechy Burn" .
