Lamb Of God Pay Tribute To Late Fan With New EP

Lamb Of God

(Metal Hammer) Lamb Of God will release a five-track EP entitled The Duke in December, in honor of a fan who died after fighting cancer for five years. Frontman Randy Blythe became friends with Wayne Ford in 2012 and remained in touch until he passed away last year, aged 33. He wrote the lyrics for the EP's title track based on their communication.

Blythe explains in the video below and in a blog: "I asked Wayne if there was anything he wanted to say to the world, any particular words he wanted to be remembered by. My idea was to record him saying them, and then layer them into the record, or perhaps take the words and work them into a song's lyrics.

"'That's really cool - let me think about it, man,' he said, but he never got back to me about it. Regardless, I wanted to honor him in some way.Those of us who think about how we'll die hope that we'll do so with dignity. But no one knows how they'll handle death until it comes for them. Wayne provided me with a living example of how to leave this world with grace. So I decided to write the lyrics to The Duke from my feeble understanding of his perspective, and in his honor."
