In a recent interview with Heavy New York, LAMB OF GOD bassist John Campbell was asked if there are any plans for him and his bandmates to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their third album, “As The Palaces Burn”, which came out in May 2003 via Prosthetic Records. He responded: “As far as the anniversary of that, these are just mile markers that, more often than, the marketing department and the record labels wanna celebrate. It’s crazy for me to look back: holy shit; that was how long ago? Fuck! So, yes, we’ll certainly take a moment to applaud that as the date comes around. If we play a show, maybe we’ll do something special.”

Campbell also talked about how LAMB OF GOD‘s songwriting has evolved since “As The Palaces Burn”, saying: “I would say it was a lot more collaborative at that point in that we would have a part — someone would bring in a part — and we would all learn the part and then we would sit there and play the part over and over again; it was just drilled into everybody’s head. And then add parts to that, or however that’s gonna go. And that was also before it was easy to have a home recording studio where you could just have your laptop and plug your guitar in and start tracking. So that has definitely changed our approach in writing. We can definitely send stuff around and be able to listen to it in our own time to kind of work out extra stuff that we’re gonna do or whatever we might wanna do. But as far as the goal of the writing, that’s remained the same. From the beginning, we just wanted to be a metal band that would show up, you would watch, your jaw would hit the floor, and all the songs we played blazingly fast and tight. And that’s kind of still been the focus.”
