Lamb of God’s ‘As the Palaces Burn’ Documentary Receives October DVD Release
Originally planned as a chronicle of their 2012 world tour and featuring fans from around the globe, things took a dramatic change with the arrest of frontman Randy Blythe on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic.
The fans are still featured in the beginning of the film, but the majority of 'As the Palaces Burn' chronicles Blythe's trial and eventual exoneration.
It's a compelling and emotional film, with Loudwire's review describing it the following way:
"’As the Palaces Burn' is truly unique. The film’s honesty fuels the viewing experience, documenting the abandonment of its own original concept without bailing on the fans. No matter how much you’ve read about Randy Blythe’s Czech trial, ‘As the Palaces Burn’ offers a view never before experienced as Blythe extends his hand for a walk with him in Hell."
The DVD edition of 'As the Palaces Burn' has a bonus disc with two hours of unreleased footage. It includes additional material about the effect of Lamb of God's music on other cultures along with other footage not included in the original film. Pre-order bundles are now available here.
