LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe will stand trial February 4, 2013, on charges of manslaughter in the death of a fan at a Prague, Czech Republic concert two years ago.
The court originally had three months to set a trial date after announcing on December 3 that Blythe was officially indicted on manslaughter charges.
Blythe is facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a 2010 incident in which a fan attending a LAMB OF GOD show died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage. Blythe‘s predicament has galvanized the heavy rock community, with artists across the hard rock genre pledging their support.
LAMB OF GOD is among the nominees for the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Other nominees in the “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” category are IRON MAIDEN, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX,HALESTORM and MARILYN MANSON.
