Gold-certified, Billboard chart-topping, five-time Grammy nominated band Lamb of God will release their highly-anticipated covers album as Burn The Priest, “Legion: XX,” next Friday, May 18 via Nuclear Blast in celebration of Burn The Priest’s upcoming 20th anniversary. “Legion: XX” is a collection of songs reflecting the greatness of the classic punk, hardcore, crossover and noise artists that influenced them in their formative years, executed with the band’s signature modern sound.
Burn The Priest rocked the music world with the release of their brash, in-your-face “Legion: XX” covers of the Accused’s ‘Inherit The Earth’ and Big Black’s ‘Kerosene’, and today fans can witness another blazing cover – this time of Bad Brains’ ‘I Against I’.

Randy Blythe commented:
“It’s been a super-big honor to recently sing with one of my favorite bands of all time. Playing with the Bad Brains was an unearthly experience – trying to replace the fastest-singing human ever on songs like “Banned in DC” and “Pay to Cum.” When it came time to choose our cover of ‘I Against I’, I was trying not to sound like H.R., as he’s so unique, but yet also throwing in enough of his style to show respect to his unique voice, through my interpretation. To cover the Bad Brains can’t be a straight-forward cover, we had to nail it, and we did.”
Pre-orders and merch bundles are available now.
