Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Attacks Internet Haters
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe isn't one to be messed with. The metal vocalist has given Internet critics eloquent verbal beat-downs in the past, and is serving up another can of whoop-ass in the upcoming issue of Metal Hammer.
Blythe cares not about haters, but more the anonymous way they tend to express themselves in today's digital age. The frontman of the pure American metal band recently fired back at his faceless critics on metal news site, Blabbermouth.
"What I have a problem with is the way some of these kids express that dislike (I’m going to assume they’re mostly kids for my own sanity. That way I can still harbor hope they will grow up into something other than a sphincter that types), and the fact that they can 'say' these things with absolutely no fear of repercussions.”
Blythe continues his rampage in the next issue of Metal Hammer. “The thing with social networking is that it can be a very powerful tool and it can also be used in reprehensible ways,” said Blythe. “Anyone can be anonymous on there. You get comments like ‘F--- off! I wish you’d die!’ None of those people would come up to me on the street and say ‘I wish you’d die’! It’s ridiculous.”
The frontman continued, “I’m a human being. I’m not some nebulous entity within a computer. I’m me and I don’t treat people with disrespect, so don’t treat me with disrespect. Currently I have over 20,000 people following me on Twitter – that’s 20,000 possible arguments I can have!”
Lamb of God's upcoming seventh studio album 'Resolution' is set for release on Jan. 24 and they are booked to start their latest international tour on Jan. 22 in Richmond, Va.
