I'm sure if anyone locked themselves in the bathroom for over 24 hours theres certain authorities that you can call up to help pursuade that person out of the bathroom.

Besides, he was bi-polar. Not paranoid

I had always just heard they were working on a very low budget?

I mean they were still on Prosthetic at that point I think.

Yeah, I heard Devin say in a interview (Which I think I read off HDR's Press section, or Media or what you want to call it) that he showed up and LoG had little budget.

the side i heard was that during the recording of 'atpb', devin was gearing up for syl's next release "alien". during this time to set the mood for the record, devin stopped taking his medication. this conflicted with the production schedule for 'atpb' but dev agreed to do it anyway.

story goes that dev freaked out during the first or second day and locked himself in the bathroom for almost 3 days. on the LoG home video, theres a small segment where they're trying to talk dev out of the studio bathroom.

subsequently, LoG decided to try to figure out how to produce the records themselves based on what little they learned from dev, and the results were shows on the record.

this is the story ive heard from LoG's point of view. its believable due to the timing between writing 'alien' and devs choice to stop taking his meds. awesome story nonetheless.


This is completely false. The project was done under VERY diifficult circumstances - no money, no engineer, Devin's computer was trashed in transit, band in-fighting... The band could not agree between themselves what they wanted. The producer can only do so much when everyone has different ideas. So, in that respect the story is true - they did end up doing it themselves because the members kept arguing over what someone had recorded and it would want it done again differently. Eventually, you have to defer to the band and just do what they want regardless of the results.

Fans of metalhead boxing should watch LOG's "Killadelphia" DVD, there's a footage of a fight between shitfaced Randall Blythe and one of the guitarsts. Match ends with 1:0 for guitarist, finished with two quick thwacks in Randys kisser (and he started the fight).

Yeah, I guess they're difficult people to work with.

Hmmm, thanks, I wasn't aware that that was how the recording of ATPB went. From what I've seen they all do seem to want to go in different dirrections when writing. The end result seems to work for them, but it doesn't seem like a completely smooth ride to get there.

Yeah, that's a good DVD. Randy starts it with some obnoxious drunken behavior and Mark finishes it. He ends up slamming Randy to the ground and knocks him out when he hits his head on the ground after they exchange a few punches and wrestle around.

Hi jasonpskully, I was surfing and found this old thread again. Heres the def.

"Phonetics. characterized by a hissing sound; noting sounds like those spelled with s "

It's that high pitch sound when people say words with s alot. Sometimes people use a thing called a desser to get rid of it on recordings or even live. To my ears on certain recordings devin will put delay on just the sibilance of something he's singing like during the chorus. To me it sounds so cool it could be my imagination that Im hearing it but I don't think so.

I actually dug the LP out the other day and gave it a spin. I've never been a fan of the cd's production but the added analogue warmth smoothes a little of the mids. It's still not bassy enough and the guitars seem to lose punch at higher volumes, but the lp is far superior to the CD.
Fucking great album musically though. After this one, they've never been as adventerous. I'll always listen to ATPB and NAG, they're classics. The new stuff... meh...

well ive always like the CD and finding out it was by devin just (in what may be a superficial way) improved the way i looked at it and made me enjoy it even more :P

I wish he had been in charge of the production of Wrath while i do like that album there are things about it that could have very easily been improved with a little of the devman's magic :guitar:

The 10th anniversary remix/remaster of this album is now out and there's an accompanying documentary about the making of the album.

It's currently streaming @ http://lamb-of-god.artist.qello.com/?fe ... =LambofGod for anyone who's interested.

Cool watch! Clears the confusion about how it all went down.

I liked the album before, the songs are classic LoG, but there's no denying this remixed version packs a whole new punch. Would love to hear Dev producing a new one (however unlikely), now that they're doing a more layered sound anyway.
